To tackle any unexpected storms or events that might come your way, it's essential to be prepared for any disaster. As a property manager, having a solid action plan in place is not just crucial for mitigating severe weather property damage, but it could also save lives. AdvantaClean is confident in our ability to provide property managers with the necessary information to stay composed and ready in an emergency.

Did you know that taking proactive steps to create a disaster plan can save you from costly property damage? Whether it's a natural calamity or an unforeseen accident, having a plan can help you minimize the adverse impact on your property. Storms, fires, power outages, and other extreme conditions can devastate your business without the appropriate recovery plan.

Your Role as a Property Manager in Creating a Plan

Begin by keeping a list of tenant contact information handy to quickly and effectively reach out to everyone in case of a disaster. Don't forget to keep your tenants in the loop about any property-related situations - through a friendly email, a quick text, or a courtesy call. By staying connected and informed, you can help create a safer living environment for everyone.

With all the unpredictable events that can happen - from severe weather to natural disasters, it's essential to prioritize building safety. Emergency preparedness should be at the top of your list, whether you're in charge of a large multi-family complex, a single-family rental, or a commercial building. Don't worry, though; with a well-thought-out emergency plan, you can handle any situation. So, what should your emergency plan include? 

  • You should mark out all the available evacuation routes for tenants to ensure they can safely exit the building during a disaster. 
  • Mark all fire escapes and exits from the structure to be visible even in compromised conditions. 
  • Make an accessible list of services and professionals they might wish to contact in emergencies that impact the structure or their unit. 

Steps to Evade Avoidable Disasters

Proactively preventing disasters can save you a lot of trouble in the long run. And one of the best ways to do that is by staying on top of preventative maintenance. So, make sure to prioritize tasks like regular check-ups and inspections. 

  • Focused landscaping can keep trees and brush from being involved in carrying fires to the building.
  • Snow and ice removal in the winter should be prompt, and any tree branches and limbs that threaten the building should be removed. 
  • Ensure that detection equipment like smoke alarms and extinguishing tools are in working order and maintained.

While you may prioritize fire prevention, flooding can be just as disastrous to your property. Don't underestimate the power of water. Taking care of and maintaining your property can make a difference in preventing water damage.
