Commercial Solutions: How To Recover From Damage
Running a business is tough work -- it requires much of your time during the day and night, and can lead to long, stressful weekends as well. Even more stressful than that can be facing the damage sustained from a storm, water, fire, and more. Recovering quick from these issues is imperative and can save your business from tons of lost profit!
Call Someone Fast
The longer you’re closed without customers calling, the less profit you have the chance of making. Ensure that at the first sign of any damage -- big OR small -- you’re calling someone to come assess and help out with fixing your damage. A few hours or proactive effort can mean earlier opening times and more business as usual!
Assess Your Business
Make sure that, as a business owner, any property that may also have been damaged is accounted for! It’s important to get all of this looked at and documented early on in order to avoid any issues with replacements, which down the line, can also hurt business flow. This is critical in getting back to normal as soon as possible.
It’s stressful and we understand that. However, the damage has already happened and you’re only able to move forward. The important thing to know when it comes to your business getting back open is that the right team can make all the difference. Trust someone who can help you no matter what the issue is and also make sure it was done correctly and right - the first time.

How Much Will Remediation Cost and How Long Will it Take?
After a disaster of any size, the rebuilding process at home or the office is sometimes overwhelming and stressful. Depending on the size of the damage sustained, the time frame can be shorter or longer — especially since weather and other factors can get in the way! But to understand the remediation process, how much it will cost and how long it might take, it is important to start at the beginning by understanding what goes into the process of emergency remediation.
What Goes into Remediation?
The process of remediation considers all of the details, therefore, it is in depth and covers all bases. This is what you would want, and expect, when it comes to making your home or business perfect again. The first step in remediating is to assess the issue and figure out what it’s going to take to make your space appear "Like it never even happened." From there, it’s important to also make sure that supplies are available and that you have a truly qualified team for the job. At SERVPRO of Ronkonkoma, we’ve taken many hours of training and studied the books on how to take your remediation job and make it quick and efficient so that you can get back to living your normal life fast.
How Long Can I Expect Remediation to Last?
One of the top questions we get is “how long will this take?” — and with good reason! It’s not surprising that many home and business owners want to get back on their feet and back into their normal lives as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this is not an answer we can give you over the phone because every situation is different.
For smaller jobs, you might be looking at a few days of constant work before it’s deemed acceptable and finished, whereas larger disasters might warrant a lengthy remediation period that can be a bit longer than you would expect.
Rest assured, our goal is to get it done as quickly as possible. The most important thing to consider, during a time like this, is that SERVPRO of Ronkonkoma will be doing our best work, ensuring that every little detail has been combed over and perfected before it’s considered done.

How Can I Prevent Damage in My Store?
What water damage can look like in your commercial space
As a business owner, the wellbeing of your establishment is, and should be, extremely important to you. When a problem arises, it’s up to you and your employees to handle the situation as soon as possible. As a business owner, how can you do this and is it even possible? Yes, it is possible, and we have a few things you can do.
To Help Prevent Severe Mold Damage
The best way to prevent mold damage from occurring is to take note of the conditions in which your business is operating. This is everything from effective mopping techniques at night to prevent excess water from lingering, to watching humidity levels throughout the day. If you think you’re experiencing the onset of mold, it’s important to address this, as soon as possible, to prevent further damage from occurring.
To Help Prevent Severe Water Damage
Similar to mold, water damage occurs mainly due to…… excess moisture and water! As funny as it is to read that because it seems like “common sense”, we sometimes overlook minor issues because they appear insignificant. To prevent water from infiltrating and harming your business, make sure to look for signs of excess water on the floor, behind walls, in the ceiling and more. This can evident by seeing dark and dried water spots, noticing a funky smell, or spotting warped paneling or droopy paint. It’s important to handle these warning signs, before they become a major issue!
To Help Prevent Major Fire Damage
To prevent fire damage, it’s important to know what you might be doing that could cause a fire in your business. Employees may feel less stressed and enjoy lighting a candle in the office, however, we strongly recommend against it. Open flames, dry air and clutter can all eventually contribute to a fire, especially if there are a lot of electrical outlets or plugs near your clutter.
