How is a commercial property loss different than a residential loss?

11/30/2020 (Permalink)

Here at SERVPRO of Huron, Sanilac & N. Tuscola, we are experts at commercial restoration work. With our dedicated Commercial Large Loss Division (CLLD), we handle large commercial property restoration every day.

Typically, the restoration industry considers any property loss claim over $50,000 to be a Large Loss. However, a Large Loss can also be determined by the number of floors or rooms affected, or the amount of materials damaged. Restoration professionals will work with an insurance claim adjuster to determine the category of the loss early in the process to ensure maximum job efficiency.

It’s important to note that a residential property can experience a Large Loss, depending on the property damage event and the size of the home. Likewise, property damage at a commercial location isn’t always considered a Large Loss, and can be an isolated event like a pinhole leak in a water pipe.

Once a commercial property loss is determined to need Large Loss Response, the restoration professional will adjust how they proceed with the project. This may include the following considerations:

  • A restorer may need to coordinate specialty equipment, such as additional trailer-mounted generators to power the increased amount of drying and dehumidifying equipment throughout the structure.
  • A restorer will need to coordinate larger labor crews for demolition and debris removal before they can begin placing drying equipment. 
  • On a large commercial loss, daily safety meetings are required before the work can begin. 

Time is still of the essence on a commercial Large Loss, only the restorer must factor in the significant increase in work. Project managers are able to meet the needs of commercial clients by carefully planning each step of the restoration process, increasing labor crew sizes, and optimizing our equipment to dry the structure and materials in the fast way possible. 

While an average residential water loss mitigation project can last anywhere from 3-5 days, typically a large commercial water loss can span, on average, 7-14 days without complications.
