Board Up Your Business After a Fire

4/13/2020 (Permalink)

When your business has been opened to the elements by fire or any other disaster, it is important to secure your property. One of the ways we do that is through our board up services.

When firefighters are working to put out a fire, they often break windows and beat holes on roofs. After the flames out, business owners will need board up services to protect the building and items remaining inside.

Why is it important to board up your business after a fire?

  • Vandalism – Children and teenagers can be quite adventurous. Believe it or not, an open business after a fire can draw in a lot of curiously among young people. If someone were to get hurt, their injuries could be a liability for you. Teens might see it as a place for a party or graffiti. Also, people can use this building for criminal activities.
  • Mother Nature – Just because your business has been damaged doesn’t mean that the weather won’t stop from damaging your building even more. By boarding up your building, you can keep out storms, rain and wind until your business is repaired. This can also help you avoid branches and leaves from entering your building.
  • Wildlife – Open windows and gaps in your roof gives the opportunity for rodents and critters to move in. Having an infestation can damage your building even more.
  • Insurance Coverage – Several insurances policies require homeowners to mitigate further property damage after a disaster. If you neglect to secure your property or limit access by people who shouldn’t be there, your insurance might not cover the new damage or injuries.

Protect your commercial building by having SERVPRO® of Romulus professionals board up openings. For more information, please call us at 734-992-3138.
