Water Damage Safety First Is this water safe to walk in?

When any part of your home has a flood remember to think safety.  Some people are unaware of the dangers that flood water could potentially contain. They never associate a flood with the possibility of having an electrical hazard and how severe a risk it might be. 

Water can seep into electronic devices, wiring in the walls or the live end of something you may have plugged in making the water to become electrified.  Water is a conductor and being aware of this may keep you safe or even save your life. 

It is extremely important before you enter the flooded area, no matter how deep, that you or a professional shut off the electricity until you are sure it safe to turn it back on.

Please call SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights at 216-464-4498 if you experience a flood and are unsure of the next steps to take! We will guide you through the process safely!

Water damage can happen to anyone at any time.  A flooded basement or burst pipe can be very traumatic for a homeowner and their first reaction may be to attempt to handle the situation on their own.  Without the proper training or the right equipment this can be both ineffective and dangerous.  Using a wet-dry vacuum can be helpful for removing small amounts of water.  However, homeowners should never enter a heavily flooded basement or area. 

The industry standard recommendation for removal of water from your property is 24-48 hours from the loss.  SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights has a team of technicians that are trained and ready to quickly respond for emergency water extraction and the services that need to follow to effectively mitigate the loss. 

If you have flooding in your basement, SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights is here to help.  Please call us, 24/7 at 216-464-4498 for all your mitigation needs.

We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Beachwood, Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights, South Euclid, Lyndhurst or Pepper Pike basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Conditions In Beachwood, Shaker Heights or Cleveland Heights Might Be Right For Mold

3/12/2019 (Permalink)

It’s estimated that more than 1 million types of mold exist, yet less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any home, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof/chimney leaks, wet basements, or condensation from ducts that dampen surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a house a prime target for mold growth.

If you suspect mold in your home, call SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.

If you suspect mold, call us today at 216-464-4498

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights for mold remediation services.
