Winter Storm Prep for Businesses

1/31/2022 (Permalink)

Winter storm in NJ. A winter storm hits NJ.

New Jersey is getting a significant storm that can batter us with wind, rain, snow, and flooding.

If you own a business that is in a high-risk area for flooding, these tips can help you minimize the damage you may be unfortunate enough to endure

Get Prepared 

1. Store important documents and valuables in a location that will be dry and secure. 

2. Check your gutters and spouts to ensure they won’t be clogged.

3. Make sure to have a working sump pump.

4. If possible, move any electronics or other costly items to a higher floor or at least try to raise them several feet off the floor to minimize any flood damage.

Safety First

1. Turn off electricity in any affected areas.  Even if there’s a power outage, the power may be suddenly restored without notice and could cause a shock hazard.

2. Be cautious of any structural compromises or falling debris ff you choose to enter a damaged building. 

3. Keep out of the floodwater as much as possible to reduce the risk of slip-and-fall hazards and bacterial contamination.

4. Be sure to wear protective clothing – including slip-resistant shoes, gloves, eye protection, and a mask – in order to minimize potential risks.

Clean-Up ASAP

When flooding occurs, the quicker you can start your cleaning and restoration efforts, the better your chances of minimizing long-term damage and costs.
