You probably don’t expect to walk into the office in the morning and find yourself knee deep in water, but there is always the chance that it could happen. Flooding is an absolute nightmare for businesses because it means that you’ll have to shut down operations until you can get the office sorted out and fix all of the damage. That’s going to cost you a lot of money in repairs and you need to account for the loss in earnings as well and that will quickly add up. That’s why it’s important that you react quickly and get the business back up and running as soon as possible.
Switch Off The Water Supply
If the flood is caused by a leak, you need to limit the damage by switching off the water supply as soon as possible. Usually, the water supply valve will be located on the outside of the building somewhere and you’ll need a key to operate it. It’s important that you know where the valve is and you keep the key in an easy to access location so you’re already prepared should a flood occur. If you’re wasting time trying to find out how to switch the water off, the office will sustain a lot more damage.
