Pre-Disaster Planning for Businesses in New Jersey
ServiceMaster by Timeless
You never know when a natural disaster can cause major damage to your property. For businesses, a natural disaster like a flood, fire, or major storm can result in major damage to property, products, and equipment and put your business out of commission while the damage is restored. All of this adds up to a major loss for your business. The best way to avoid a major loss when disaster strikes is to have a plan in place to respond to the disaster quickly and limit the damage and your losses.

Step 1: Pre-Loss Planning
When it comes to keeping your commercial property safe, the best defense is a good offense. At ServiceMaster by Timeless, we believe that effective preparation is the best way to help minimize damages when disasters strike.
ServiceMaster offers the only Pre-Loss Plan in the industry. We assist all government, county, municipality, and commercial businesses. You can rest assured that your organization will receive the highest priority response from our vast local, regional, and national resources.
It is common for business owners to be so focused on their day-to-day activities that they do not put a disaster plan in place to respond to floods, fires, severe weather, and other disasters. Our professionals will help you form a comprehensive Pre-Loss Plan that offers protection for your municipality or commercial business. We will work with you to assess your situation and determine the best plan of action for you and your employees to prepare for any size disaster.
Why Have a Pre-Loss Plan?
The thought of a large-scale disaster is terrifying for business owners, but 84% of commercial property losses are caused by small scale disasters such as burst pipes or contained kitchen fires. However, these smaller scale disasters can still have a major impact on your business and result in large losses if they are not handled quickly. Some examples of minor problems that can become major issues include broken sprinkler systems, electrical fires, sewage backups, loss of power, and burst pipes.
A natural disaster can happen at any time. If you do not have a plan in place to respond to the disaster, you are more likely to experience serious damage that will disrupt your business and cost you both time and money.
Benefits of ServiceMaster by Timeless Pre-Loss Plan:
- Minimize financial disruption to your business
- Minimize damage to commercial property
- Speed up the restoration
Step 2: Highest Priority Response Program
ServiceMaster has developed the industry’s Highest Priority Response Program. Every aspect of our program is engineered with the clients’ interests in mind, from individual property preparation and planning to established lines of communication regarding potential threats.
When you sign up for our Priority Response Program, you are truly gaining a partner in protecting and restoring your property. ServiceMaster does not believe in prioritizing clients based on the retainer they are willing to pay and have never had to deny clients service due to lack of resources. We offer this program free of charge to our clients.
This is NOT just a plan and response, but a continuous partnership.
Benefits of ServiceMaster’s Priority Response Program:
- Ensure employees and managers know what to do to continue operations during the restoration process.
- Prepare for working remotely if possible during the restoration process.
- Avoid having to shut down or lose your business.
Post-Loss Recovery Plan
A natural disaster can send many businessowners into a tailspin:
Damage to your commercial building and office equipment may make it necessary to suspend business operations, costing you and your employees their time, money, livelihoods, and possibly even some of them their careers.
We provide a Post-Loss Recovery Plan to help businesses affected by a natural disaster. After arriving to your location within 4 hours from the time of your initial call, our team of professional technicians will get your local and county government municipality or privately owned commercial business fully restored and your business back in operation as soon as safely possible. We will quickly assess the extent of the damage so we can create and implement a comprehensive Post-Loss Recovery Plan to completely restore your commercial property.
Benefits of ServiceMaster’s Post-Loss Recovery Plan:
- Provide early access to generators for any size commercial business structure.
- Offer warming centers if necessary due to inclement weather.
- Working in concert with all location managers and insurance adjusters as necessary and/or if requested.
At ServiceMaster by Timeless, we utilize Matterport Technology to create a comprehensive pre-loss documentation of inventory and conditions. This enables us to provide a complete assessment of your local and county government municipality or privately owned commercial business property.
Matterport Technology is the standard for 3D visual space capture recording and auto-mapping. Their all-in-one platform transforms real-life spaces into immersive digital twin models, infinitely better than standard panoramic scans.
Everyone – policyholder, adjuster, and contractor – can all agree that the HDR photography, interactive 3D walkthroughs, and digital measurements displayed in a Matterport 3D scan are indisputable. In Matterport, every scan point is time-stamped, there is no ability to alter photos, and dimensions are accurate within 1%. Matterport empowers people to capture and connect rooms to create truly interactive 3D models of spaces and serves as an important tool in quantifying lost inventory after a disaster.
Why ServiceMaster by Timeless uses Matterport Technology:
- Accurate and efficient measuring
- HDR quality pictures
- Interactive 3D walkthroughs
- Commercial business protection (Matterport disrupts insurance claims and restoration disputes)
In the property insurance world, agreeing upon what reality actually was at a certain point in time is “mission critical” for all sides involved in a claim.
