Not every disaster is the same. The process of restoring a property after the unthinkable occurs can look very different depending on the scale of the loss.
For example, a fire in a commercial kitchen will require a totally different restoration process than a sewage back-up in a private home. Restoring an apartment complex with a mold problem isn’t the same as securing a commercial warehouse after an earthquake.
First Onsite is an industry leader in responding to large, complex commercial losses. We are here to be your ally and your support system in the stressful aftermath of a complex loss. But how are we able to support business owners and commercial property managers like you in such a stressful time?
We know the ins and outs of large and complex commercial loss.
Even though every disaster can feel like a huge burden to overcome, only some fit into the category of “large and complex.”
These terms are specific to the insurance industry. A large loss claim is typically understood to be any insurance claim that is complicated in nature and reflective of a significant loss in value, usually at minimum of $50,000.
These events often require multiple professional consultants to provide assessments of the damage and estimates of the work that needs to be done. Engineers, electricians, plumbers, and building inspectors are just some of the people who get involved with large, complex losses, as well as claims management professionals from the insurance company.
Bringing in these consultants can be a complex process of its own, so it’s important to find a restoration partner with the right contacts. First Onsite finds these professionals for you. When we don’t have someone on staff who can quickly assess a problem, we know exactly who to call so that you are not left searching for the right person.
Another defining characteristic of complex losses is that the damage from the initial incident impacts your profitability in other ways. For example, a flood in your warehouse may mean that you have to restore the building itself and destroy or restore damaged inventory. But what about the losses you will see in cancelled orders, shipping delays, and more? These are the complex losses that some business owners will inevitably face after a disaster.
We respond quickly to limit your losses.
A fast response is one of the most important things that needs to happen when disaster strikes. Mitigating the damage quickly means that you won’t continue to hemorrhage money by letting things get worse and worse.
How can waiting make things worse?
Unfortunately, the possibilities are pretty much endless. When a fire department extinguishes a fire, the water they use can cause water damage if it’s not taken care of quickly. If a building is left unsecured after structural damage, it can become a target for vandalism and theft. Inventory and equipment that has been left in a wet environment, rather than quickly removed, can become moldy and further damaged.
Clearly, time is of the essence. Our goal is to respond as fast as possible when you call us. That’s why we invite area businesses to connect with us now, before a disaster even occurs.
