When disaster strikes, Accutech Restoration & Remodeling knows what’s at stake for commercial and institutional property managers. How well you react in an emergency affecting one of your properties can prevent financial losses from mounting for the owners and occupants, but your reputation is also on the line. Property owners look to you to minimize damage and mitigate their financial losses. Your standing as a commercial property manager is dependent on securing the property and restoring it to its pre-disaster condition both cost-efficiently and quickly. The goal is to create as little loss of use and function by tenants, occupants, and owners as possible.
Disasters rarely give you a warning, but you cannot afford to be surprised
As a commercial property manager, the owners and occupants of the properties under your control depend upon you to restore services quickly and efficiently, and they want it done at the lowest cost possible. Hurricanes and tropical storms are common to the Florida Sun Coast area, but predicting their severity and the amount of damage they cause can be difficult. Damages caused by burst pipes, fires, backed up sewer lines, mold, and other circumstances unrelated to storms and natural disasters can be impossible to predict.
Being prepared means knowing who to call for the services required to preserve and restore your properties. Your building owners expect you to be ready with a plan you can put into place the minute disaster strikes. You can be ready by contacting the water damage, fire restoration, and emergency services experts at Accutech Restoration who can assist you to identify and plan how to deal with the next disaster that might strike one or more of the properties you manage.
Advanced planning guarantees you the fastest response times and the quickest recovery of all types of emergencies and disasters that might affect your properties. Accutech Restoration ensures that your properties will receive the attention of licensed and certified restoration experts who have been providing superior care and services to commercial and institutional property owners and managers in Florida for more than three decades.
Create a program for responding to disasters
Damage to a commercial property through fire, storms, or other disasters must be addressed quickly to avoid financial losses from escalating. Response time is critical when disaster strikes, so the best method for keeping your response time to a minimum is to set up a program detailing how the people in your organization should respond.
Here are a few of the things you should do before you must deal with an actual disaster:
Identify those individuals within your organization who are responsible for making critical decisions when a disaster or emergency occurs at one of your managed properties. The individuals identified in your response plan should know their responsibilities and should practice methods for carrying them out in an emergency.
People in charge of a particular building or facility should be familiar with the location and operation of shut off mechanisms for water, gas, and other services to prevent additional damage in the event of an emergency or disaster. For example, serious damage from flooding and interference with other systems can be avoided water from a broken pipe simply by turning off the water supply, but too many buildings or other facilities do not have someone on site who is familiar with the location and operation of the shut-off valve.
Focusing on routine maintenance can prevent or lessen the severity of disasters or emergencies. Preventative maintenance can help avoid system failures or malfunctions, and it can help to protect the properties you manage when natural disasters occur. For example, routine trimming or tree removal could prevent damage to buildings, structures, and power lines from fallen trees or branches during a storm.
The disaster response experts at Accutech Restoration help you to identify areas of concern at the properties you manage and design an easy-to-follow plan for remedial action you can take before a natural disaster or non-storm emergency strikes. Preparation in advance of a disaster can improve the chances of quickly restoring your properties and facilities to full operation by minimizing the damage that might occur.

How Accutech Restoration protects more than just your property
Once a team of experts arrives at a property in response to your call, they go to work evaluating the extent of the damage. The Accutech Restoration commitment to service and excellence goes beyond giving estimates. The evaluation team identifies potential susceptibilities that could expose the building’s owners and occupants to additional liabilities and addresses them with expert and cost-efficient solutions.
For example, a property damaged by a fire, natural disaster, or other catastrophic events can quickly become a neighborhood eyesore that affects the property’s value and can also damage the reputation of its owner and property manager. Properties allowed to remain in disrepair can lead to problems with local government regulatory agencies, including fines and other sanctions. Even worse, properties in disrepair can be the source of liability claims by anyone injured while on the property site.
The Accutech Restoration team determines what must be done to safeguard your property, keep it in compliance with local laws and codes, and secure it to prevent people from entering and being injured. A team of property stabilization and security experts can be immediately dispatched to board up and secure your property to keep it safe and give you peace of mind even before the restoration process is underway.
