Businesses make up the backbone of our country, our town and our livelihood. Whether you work for one, own one or have a favorite Gillette, Sheridan business, their existence is important to our daily lives.

 If you are a business owner, you know that operating the day-to-day and solving problems comes with the territory of being your own boss. However, that also means you have to be the one that handles things when disaster strikes from either water or storm damage.

 When talking about the sheer cost of damages, it has become much more expensive to recover from damages over the last five years. On average in that time period, disasters cost the United States $158 billion annually, which is a significant increase in cost compared to previous years.

 In Gillette, Sheridan, we witness severe storms, tornadoes and floods on a regular basis. This past fall, we suffered through a large storm system that brought hail damage to a local campground. While the recovery process happened eventually for them, it was still taxing on their business.

 The most likely cause of damages for commercial properties include water damage and storm damage. The better prepared you are for these possibilities, the better equipped you will be to handle them.

 Water Damage

Unwanted water and moisture is a major problem for businesses across the United States. These problems come from excessive rains and even simple internal issues like a plumbing leak. While these problems range in intensity, both types can wreak havoc on your property.

 Flooding that comes from an outside source can often seep down through doors and into the ground where it can degrade the foundation of your facility. Landscape your property to route water away from your facility and keep it dry.

 Water damage can also be a slow, silent problem, stemming from a slow plumbing leak or an appliance failure. Take care to check your pipes on a regular basis to catch any unnoticed problems.

 Storm Damage

Commercial destruction from storms is also a common issue and can be detrimental to your entire building and business. Even something simple like a minor power outage can cause massive problems for you if you rely on power or refrigeration for your product.

 Powerful storms are also capable of taking off roofing and siding, breaking windows and doing irreversible damage to your building.

 Most storms have minimal wind speeds between 10 and 45 mph, but a strong wind over 100 mph can tear through walls, throw debris into windows and sling trees into your business.

 If you are able to invest, install storm-protective window coverings or reinforce your roof to help prevent extensive damage. Thankfully, utilizing even some basic preventive measures can help you avoid costly repairs and potential business closures.
