Marketing Before a Storm Can Help Flood Victims
Whether it be from a tornado and power outage or a huge rain storm with water coming down too quickly to have a place to go causing major flooding, marketing and warnings before a storm can save lives and help those in need after it hits. Many people these days are so preoccupied with other things that they are totally unprepared for a tragedy situation like the ones mentioned above.
Once the rain or tornado has touched a community, every roofer, dry out company, remediation group and plumber is slammed with business that they were not prepared for. These would normally be a residents super hero as they come to the rescue every other day of the year in a timely fashion.
Having a Flood Remediation Company Contact Can be Crucial
Maybe you know the local remediation company. Possibly they have been to the house before or to a family members in a time of need for a non-emergency situation. It can be crucial in a high stress time to have someone you know and trust on speed dial so the minute you figure out that your roof has collapsed, your home has caught on fire or your sump pump has failed you can call them immediately and have relief knowing it is being handled.
Even doing research on who is marketing their services and needs the work BEFORE a big storm hits can build the relationship to bring them to you first should something happen and you need immediate assistance. I would think of things like this if I were living in a high tornado or flood zone and be ready with supplies and contacts to make the transition easier when disaster strikes.
Disasters Can be Devastating but You Can Be Prepared
Marketing a disaster may seem like a company is jumping the gun on a bad scenario coming to term but in actuality, just like the news channels letting you know what to do in case of a hurricane, flood, tornado or power outage companies letting you know their disaster recovery services ahead of time can save your life or your home. Don’t be offended to see businesses advertising worst case scenario situations and their personal touches that can help you.
In short, take notes before the storm. Be prepared and be alert. Take a look at this video that one of our emergency water damage companies has set up to help in the event of a storm.
