December in Ohio
It’s December in Ohio and so far we have had both snow and rain, which equals lots of water! We are also having cold temperatures which can cause broken pipes/lines. Although there are different issues that can cause this to happen, it is extremely important to ensure that your heat is on and at a temperature that will not allow pipes to freeze, especially if you are leaving your home unattended for any amount of time. If a pipe/line breaks, the effects can be devastating. Often the amount of water needs more than just a mop or a rag. Cleaning up the visible water may not be enough. The floor, subfloor, walls and ceiling can be holding water you are unable to dry. Please call our team of trained professionals at SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights @ 216-464-4498 and they will assess the affected areas, determine a drying plan and begin mitigation.
