Continue reading to learn more about 3 things you can do to protect your commercial property before the storm damage restoration experts get there.

1. Stay Away from the Affected Area

When standing water and electricity meet, there is a risk for electrocution. Therefore, it is imperative that people stay out of areas that have experienced water damage, especially if there are electrical appliances, wiring, or outlets in the space, which is common for rooms in commercial buildings. While keeping people out of affected areas, it is also important to refrain from turning on the lights or even unplugging electrical appliances, as these actions can be dangerous.

2. Turn Off the Water Source & Breakers

Another way to protect yourself and others working in your commercial building safe from electrical shock is by shutting off the water source and turning off the breakers immediately upon discovering water damage from a storm.

3. Protect Your Building’s Belongings

Commercial properties house many valuable items, including documents, equipment, retail items, and other products. In order to prevent further water damage to these items, it is beneficial to move valuables away from water damaged areas to facilitate drying and assess them for damage as soon as possible.
