Emergency Ready Profile

8/2/2023 (Permalink)

Emergencies are one of those things that no one plans to have happen to them, however, they are impossible to escape. The best way to think of them is, it is not a matter of if but when an emergency will pop up. When that day comes, how many of you can confidently say there is a well-thought-out plan in place in place for your business? If your answer is no, then let SERVPRO of Bay St. Louis and Diamondhead help you with this overwhelming task.

From a powerful hurricane, accidental kitchen fire, or a busted pipe causing a flood the list of disasters a business can experience is endless. That is why having a strong plan in place is so crucial and can often be the difference in whether your business survives or if it does not. In fact, 95% of disasters that standard businesses suffer from are man-made, for example, an accidental internal fire or flood. Research shows that up to 50% of businesses never reopen after suffering from a disaster and the ones who do almost always have a response plan to thank.

The IICRC Develops The Standards For The Restoration Industry

The IICRC has been the driving force in establishing the main industry standards and reference guides for professional carpet cleaning, water damage restoration, and mold remediation. These IICRC standards take years to develop and require the coordination of experts in the field: manufacturers, industry organizations, insurance professionals, training schools, contractors, and public health professionals.

Every five years, the standards are reviewed and updated. The water damage restoration field changes rapidly with advancements in technology and science, and therefore the standards must evolve to keep pace.
