Fireproofing Commercial Records and Other Important Documents
While SERVPRO document restoration can preserve papers in many cases, it is prudent to ensure that the business in question has secure digital backups in place for when a fire or other disaster occurs. Owners can “disaster-proof” their documents by:
- Keeping digital copies of documents both on- and offline. Cloud storage is a convenient method of easy access
- Offline storage on encrypted hard drives or devices that can be opened with a hard token device like a USB key fob can add an extra layer of security for company papers
- Owners should ensure that their business implements a consistent yet secure policy to preserve documents
- Formulate a continuity plan based on FEMA guidelines and train employees to follow similar protocols in the event of a disaster
When a fire does occur, SERVPRO professionals can perform careful pack-outs and attempt to restore hard copies of documents to a preloss state where possible. This process includes photographs and scans of papers uploaded to cloud storage for businesses to use as needed for their insurance claims and other necessities.
