Getting ready for frozen pipes in Avon, OH

9/23/2021 (Permalink)

When pipes freeze in Avon, OH from the extremely cold winter weather and then thaw out as temperatures rise, pipes tend to crack and burst, causing leaking and flooding. A frozen pipe bursting can cause a lot of water damage in your home.

Prevent frozen pipes from damaging your home by keeping your home’s thermostat no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.  If you will be out of the home for a lengthy period, especially during the holiday's, consider shutting off and draining your water system. Also, if you're selling your home, make sure the thermostat is set to 55 degrees + to help prevent water damage. We have responded to several calls from homeowners that are selling their homes that have walked into total home floods because pipes busted while no one was home and able to shut off the water in a timely manner. 

SERVPRO of Northern Lorain County Professionals have the experience, expertise, and the resources to remediate damage caused by winter weather.

If you have water damage due to extreme weather, Call SERVPRO of Northern Lorain County.

What is the difference between rain damage and flood damage?

What is the difference between rain damage and flood damage to your Avon, OH home?

Rain damage is caused by falling water. A leaky roof or window can cause rain to intrude into your home. Gutters and downspouts can also be a large contributor to rain damage. It is important to clean your gutters and downspouts to keep the rain away from your walls and windows.

Flood damage is caused by rising water. Improper grading, failing drainage, or rising creek water are all examples of how flood damage can occur in your home. Flood damage can also cause cracks to your foundation allowing excess water to intrude into your home.

It is important to professionally dry the structure so you can prevent further damage. SERVPRO of Northern Lorain County uses updated technology and professionalism to treat your home as it is ours. We want to help you restore your home “Like it never even happened.”

Severe Storms Don't Have to be Your Enemy!

4/30/2021 (Permalink)

Are you a homeowner in Avon, OH? Severe storms don’t have to be your enemy.

While rain water in by itself doesn’t pose a huge threat, rainstorms that are heavy and occur over several days can expose your home to water damage. Here are a few tips you can take to reduce water damage risks:

Check your roof

If your roof is in good condition many risks are eliminated. Your roof is your first line of defense from water damage. When you have loose shingles or cracks this can quickly lead to internal water damage in your attic or ceiling. If you’re unsure the condition of your roof, call in a professional to check it out so you are prepared for Spring and Summer storms!

Inspect Your Gutters

Having well running gutters in place can be critical when experiencing heavy rainfall. Gutters help keep water away from your foundation and entering basements, so it’s important to keep them clear. When you direct water away from your foundation you eliminate the risk of puddling around it which in turn will seep into the ground. Downspouts should be installed to direct water 5-10 feet away from your home. Doing so, will help greatly reduce risk for water damage after a storm.

Checking these two things this spring will help reduce your risk for water damage after heavy rains. But as always, we are ready to help 24/7 if you find yourself with water damage or storm damage.
