Is Water Damage on the Menu at Your Brooklyn Deli?
How to Prepare Your Brooklyn Deli for Water Damage Recovery
Delis throughout the Brooklyn borough are plentiful, so you need to work continuously to set your eatery apart from the competition in the area. While part of this comes from your commitment to providing your customers with top quality meats and cheeses, as well as a selection of well-prepared sandwiches and sides, it is also about how quickly you can respond in the face of adversity. When situations like water damage occur, you need to work fast to prepare the property for restoration – even if it is out of your skillset to perform it.
With how quickly emergencies like water damage in Brooklyn delis and other eateries can get out of control, you have much more than your building to protect. In addition to structural concerns, you have the investment that you have made in the meats and cheeses to consider, as well as the foot traffic of your loyal customers. Even without the ability to handle widespread water loss as our SERVPRO professionals can, there are steps you can take to prepare your property for restoration work to come.
- Start by shutting off any water that is feeding the loss incident. If there is a break in the plumbing or you have an appliance that has malfunctioned, you can often locate an independent valve to shut off just this portion of your shop to keep everything else running normally.
- Do your best to contain the spread of the water loss incident when possible. You can even begin employing specific water removal efforts, such as using a mop and bucket, to slow the progression of these damages with our SERVPRO professionals are in route.
- If the deli must close for a brief period, make sure you protect the investment you’ve made in the meats, cheeses, and other food items by relocating them if consistent power becomes an issue in the building.
It is our business to get you back in business, so you can trust our SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn team to help you through every phase of water loss recovery. Give us a call anytime at (718) 522-4400.
