Should You Shower During a Storm in Your Cleveland Home?

12/18/2018 (Permalink)

Have your parents or grandparents ever told you not to shower or bathe in your Newburgh Heights home during a lighting storm? As bizarre as it may sound, they are certainly right. 

The claim that taking a shower during a lightning storm can electrocute you is no old wives' tale, experts say. The National Weather Service urges the public to avoid getting in the shower during a lightning storm in the event that a bolt may strike one of your Lyndhurst home's water pipes and electrifies your bathroom. 

According to the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), an average of 80 people every year are killed by lightning, and hundreds more are severely injured. Many times these injuries are due to misinformation.

If your Garfield Heights home is damaged by lightning, call SERVPRO of Beachwood and Cleveland Northeast at 216.464.4498. We are here for you 24/7/365 for all your cleanup and restoration needs.
