A ServiceMaster Restore technician with equipment

Commercial Earthquake & Tsunami Cleanup Services

The effects of an earthquake on business operations are huge. Earthquakes can knock over buildings, destroy valuable contents and make IT systems unusable. The shaking and shifting of the earth can also cause structural damage and rupture gas, water, and sewage lines in your facility. Businesses located in coastal areas are also susceptible to undersea earthquakes that could generate powerful tsunamis. These walls of water move rapidly and have the power to easily overwhelm protective barriers. The force, abruptness and magnitude of the flooding caused by tsunamis can cause catastrophic damage to your business and your future. Count on ServiceMaster Restore for steadfast expertise and ongoing guidance in these times of need.

From structural problems to cracks and breakages caused by earthquakes, we make the process of restoring your place of business smooth and efficient. From start to finish, we work with you, answering any questions and providing guidance on how to best move forward.

Effects of earthquake damage on your business

Earthquakes occur when fault lines below the earth's surface shift, creating a forceful trembling of the ground. Some regions are more likely to experience serious earthquakes, but they can actually happen anytime and anywhere. When one of the fault lines ruptures, the violent shaking and shifting of the earth can cause severe damage to your business, including:

  • Ruptured gas, water, & sewage lines inside your facility
  • Destroyed contents
  • Long-term power outages & inability to use IT equipment
  • Collapsed walls
  • Broken windows
  • Fallen items
  • Flooded property
  • Structural damage

Along with these initial effects, earthquakes can also cause more natural disasters to occur, including landslides, avalanches, flash floods, fires and even tsunamis. When these disasters hit, your business may face more serious damage.

Effects of tsunami damage on your business Coastal areas are at risk for undersea earthquakes that create powerful, life-threatening tsunamis.

With the abruptness and magnitude of this disaster, your company can face damages like:

  • Flash floods
  • Damaged equipment
  • Long-term power outages
  • Destroyed files, paperwork & technology
