Dealing with Damaged Inventory from a Flood Damage Situation in Exeter
Rely on SERVPRO to Mitigate Storm Damage
Inventory management is an essential task for any store that sells goods in Exeter. A proper inventory management system monitors sales, generates reports about the stock on hand, and schedules replenishment of products. A storm, sudden or not, can lead to damaged inventory due to the flood damage incurred. When this happens, you should adjust your books to reflect the shrinkage and then call a good restoration company to assess and remedy the situation.
If a storm has hit your warehouse or store, you may sustain considerable inventory destruction that can compromise your business. When this happens, SERVPRO can send a team of flood removal experts to Exeter for assessing the situation and restoring your property. We follow IICRC guidelines in every emergency, thus ensuring a smooth and efficient restoration process.
How Flood Damage Affects Inventory
Inventory loss occurs when the stock count is less than the original number that the business carries on its books. While some flood damage situations can ruin merchandise beyond repair, SERVPRO can salvage particular property most of the time. One way you can reduce damage to your inventory is by protecting your stock from flood damage beforehand. This involves conducting periodic inspections of your store and then repairing it as needed.
