7/9/2019 (Permalink)

No disaster is ever too small for our services in Avon or Avon Lake. Because water spreads so quickly, we follow the same protocol for all water damages. We want to help you protect your property and restore it to like-new excellent condition. When water damage restoration professionals like SERVPRO of Northern Lorain County leave your home, you should rest assured there won’t be any further water damage or mold.

One thing to remember is that the sooner we can begin, the more easily we can get your home dry again. We are Faster To Any Size Disaster, but that always begins with your initial call to us. We are always here to answer your call and provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions possible 24/7.

As water spreads, it continually infiltrates the many different materials it encounters. Our equipment is designed to remove this water, and our techniques prevent water stains and discoloration wherever possible. Some items do become permanently damaged when in contact with water, which makes it crucial to react as quickly as possible. The faster you respond, the less damage you will have. If you let your contents sit in standing water for any amount of time, they might not be salvageable.

SERVPRO of Northern Lorain County here is here help the Avon Community when any size water damage or fire damage happens. Call us when disaster strikes 440-245-2115.

Floods are the most common natural disaster in Avon

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

Floods are one of the most common natural disasters in Avon. Living so close to the shoreline, there is a potential for suffering flood damage. However, it is usually quick, heavy rainfall that causes sump pump failures and flooded basements. Unlike any other natural disasters such as hurricanes that have typical peak season, flooding can occur anywhere and anytime. Floods cause billions of dollars a year in property damage.  Approximately 90 percent of all presidentially declared natural disasters involve flooding. 

These are some of the flood terms used to identify a flood hazard: 

-A flood watch indicates that conditions are favorable for flooding to develop. Be prepared to move to higher ground. 


-A flood warning means that flooding is occurring or will occur soon.  If advised to evacuate, do so immediately.

-A flash flood warning means that flash flooding is occurring or imminent. Move to higher ground immediately.  

If a flood does strike your home or business, give SERVPRO of Northern Lorain County a call. We are prepared to handle any size disaster. The sooner we get to work on your home or business means a better chance of restoring your property. It also reduces the chance of mold caused by standing water.

Severe Storms don't have to be your enemy!

4/30/2019 (Permalink)

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.

Difference between rain damage and flood damage

4/30/2019 (Permalink)

What is the difference between rain damage and flood damage to your 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.”
