50% of Businesses Never Reopen! Middleboro, MA 02346
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA): “Almost 50 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster because just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage. During the 5 year period of 2006-2010, the average commercial flood claim had amounted to just over $85,000.” With the raise in construction and residential and commercial building prices on the rise, we can suppose that that figure has only increased over the last 7 years.

Regardless of annual income; an unexpected halt in revenue accompanied by a slow claims process, can affect businesses of all sizes. Whether your business generates hundreds of dollars, or hundreds of thousands, per day; minimizing damage quickly can potentially save your business.
