Building a successful business is something to be proud of. As any business owner knows, the hard work and sacrifices involved are not negligible, but the results are more than worth it. However, having all of that hard work derailed by a disaster is a reality that many businesses face at some point—but fortunately, through careful planning, you can mitigate your risk levels and work your way toward a smooth recovery.

There is nothing more important to disaster preparations than staying safe, so we always advise business owners to plan around their employees’ safety first and foremost. However, once your safety measures are in place, you can begin thinking through the recovery process to make sure you are ready to spring into action and begin the work of restoration.

Beginning the Work of Restoration After a Disaster Hits Your Business

Determine your insurance company and restoration professionals. In the aftermath of a disaster, it is likely that some damages are covered by your commercial insurance policy, but you will need to check with your provider to know for sure. Get in touch with them quickly so you know the details, and then contact your commercial restoration company so they can begin assembling a response team to begin handling the damage as quickly as possible.

Keep in touch with customers as you recover. Keeping your customers looped in is important after a disaster so they know what is happening and when they will be able to support your business again. Sending out messaging on social media is a great way to update everyone on frequently changing conditions. Additionally, it is worth considering offering gift cards or another way that they can support your business during the closure that can still provide you with revenue as you work to reopen.

See what disaster assistance you qualify for. After an event has been declared a disaster, many resources open up to business owners to apply for. The Small Business Administration offers commercial loans for this very reason, which can be used to cover multiple costs and are provided with flexible terms and repayment options to provide the maximum value.
