Tips for Preparing Your Business for Winter Weather
Much of Georgia is under a winter weather advisory with freezing rain and ice accumulation expected.
Here are a few tips your business should consider right now to prepare for inclement weather
- Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, such as wind, heavy rain and ice can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries.
- Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
- Inspect all handrails, stairwells and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.
- Ask SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding Counties Professionals about starting a Disaster Recovery Plan for your business.

Broken supply lines can be a major headache
SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding Counties is a phone call away...678-432-3003
Most people see that SERVPRO is a flood cleanup company and think, "I don't live by an ocean or pond or river so the chance of my house flooding is next to nothing."
What most people don't know is that most flooding calls we get come from broken supply lines. Supply lines are those thin hoses that run to appliances like refrigerators, dish washers, toilets, water heaters, clothes washers, etc. The quality and price of these hoses vary drastically. Most people opt for the least expensive option without knowing that cheap hoses need to be checked and replaced often. Sudden bursts and slow drips both can cause a substantial amount of damage which require flood mitigation and sometimes mold remediation. If you haven't checked you supply lines in a while, or ever, now would be a good time to do so.
We are available to provide estimates to any supply lines that may be of concern.

Flooding In Georgia
According to the World Economic Forum, “in the last 20 years, flooding has been the most common natural disaster by far, accounting for 43% of all recorded events.” We can completely understand this with all of the rain and floods we have been having in Georgia this summer! You wake up on a Saturday morning ready to relax by the pool or go to the lake after a busy week at the office, only to see the dark clouds glooming over you. You see the trees shaking from the gusts of wind blowing by and you hear the thunder in the distance. You hope that the storm will “blow over” quickly, but then it begins to pour. You watch as the water accumulates across your property and then, just like that, the water is now intruding into your home. Now are you not going to be able to spend your weekend outside enjoying a dip in the pool, but your basement has become your own personal swimming ground! Take the measures to prevent additional damage to your home or office, then call SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties to properly take care of the damage that has already been done.
