How To Keep a Dallas Movie Theater In Business After Flood Damage Hits
Let SERVPRO help you keep your Dallas Business up and running from flood damage.
Staying in business after substantial flood damage to a movie theater can be tough, especially if you try to bear the whole burden on your own. Insurance companies and professional damage mitigation services like SERVPRO exist to make sure that you survive the disaster with as little lost profit as possible, but cannot handle the problems on their own. Ultimately, the survival of a flood-damaged business primarily relies on its owners. For the best chances at staying open with as little revenue lost as possible as a result of flooding, keep these tips in mind.
Stay Open if Possible
One of the most substantial ways that flood damage can disrupt a Dallas movie theater's business is by causing damage severe enough to warrant total closure of the premises. However, most floods do not cause damage extensive enough to call for such drastic measures. If at least part of the theater manages to avoid significant damage, you should keep that section open and operating while SERVPRO works on affected areas. In other cases, we may also be able to repair critical areas first and allow you to resume day-to-day operations sooner while we finish working on less-important parts of the building. We recommend that you keep as much of the facility open as possible to allow revenue flow to continue during the restoration process.
Tackle Problems Quickly
It may be tempting to continue operations in damaged areas without implementing substantial damage mitigation protocols. However, these can ultimately harm your business by contributing to far more expensive and time-consuming issues while simultaneously eroding customer trust in your theater. Patrons do not enjoy visiting places that bear clear signs of damage and may be less likely to return if their theater has not been properly restored. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster to make sure that as little damage as possible happens to your theater.
Work With Your Insurance
Insurance can be your saving grace in a time of need. We always recommend working closely with your insurance provider and may even be able to help with your negotiations and cost estimates. By following instructions and fulfilling requests from your insurer, payouts may come faster and in higher amounts than with ordinary claim submission.
