Five things to remember to prevent a FIRE from happening.

7/5/2017 (Permalink)

Dealing with the aftermath of a fire in your home or business can be costly, time-consuming, and emotional. This is why it’s important to take certain precautions to prevent or decrease the likelihood of a fire. These helpful tips provided by the NPFA can reduce the probability of a fire in your home or office;

1.       Watch your cooking!  You should always stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling or broiling food. Remember to never let young children near the stove or oven while you are cooking.

2.       Give space heaters space! It’s best to keep space heaters at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn.

3.       Keep matches and lighters out of reach! The safest place to keep matches and lighters is in high cabinets, preferably under a child lock.

4.       Inspect electrical cords! You should replace cords that are cracked, damaged, have broken plugs, or loose connections.

5.       Be careful when using candles! Be sure to keep candles at least one foot away from anything that will burn.

Not all fires are caused by things we have control of. Some fires can be caused by unavoidable acts of nature or unpredictable accidents. Just in case one of these catastrophes may happen, keep in mind that a fire escape plan for your crew or family is always a good idea! Try practicing it at least twice a year. In the event of fire damages SERVPRO OF MEDINA COUNTY  is available around the clock to offer exceptional response time and trained professionals ready to restore your property! Call 1-800-933-7179    24/7

When Heavy Storms Come Through your Community

6/26/2017 (Permalink)

When heavy weather rolls through MEDINA COUNTY  homeowners scramble to find the best storm damage restoration options “near me.” Severe seasonal storms overwhelm with water and wind damage that seems irreparable. Before you give in to despair, contact SERVPRO  OF MEDINA and find a partner to bring your home back to preloss condition. 

 Extensive damage is a problem affecting whole neighborhoods in the path of the storm, adding to your post-storm anxiety. Will your home’s issues be resolved quickly? How long will it take to have your damage assessed? The commitment we have to our local customers is possible only because we are part of a larger, nationwide network of experienced and well-equipped restoration specialists.
 We prepare for the unexpected, knowing that our area often faces catastrophic natural forces. Within hours after you contact our local dispatchers, a project manager arrives to assess your particular damage issues. We move swiftly to secure your home from further damage from the elements.

Water damage has the potential to destroy the integrity of your home, so we move fast to plan for water removal and repair. Saturated walls, ceilings, floors, and contents move quickly from a water removal problem to a more severe contamination crisis if we delay the response. Expect help to arrive within the crucial first 48 hours as we react to avoid secondary damage such as mold growth. We leverage teams of technicians and fleets of equipment from other SERVPROs to meet your and your community’s needs in the hours and days after the storm.

The initial priority is to remove the water, pumping and vacuuming first, followed by positioning air movers and dehumidifiers to complete the drying. Ridding the structure of water happens before structural repairs as the water has the potential to be so damaging. Restoration is the goal, with as few items removed and replaced as is safe and to applicable codes. Throughout the process, we work with your insurance company to minimize your out of pocket costs. You are in the communication loop at all times.

  • Shut off the source of the water.




  • Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building if the access panel is safe from electrical shock.




  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting




  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items




  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying




  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting




  • Remove to a safe, dry place any paintings, art objects, computers, documents and other materials that are valuable or sensitive to moisture.

Flooding in Homes

4/20/2017 (Permalink)

 



SERVPRO OF MEDINA  Has a Thorough Process in Place to Deal with Your Water Damage


Water damage in your home can come from various sources such as sewage backups, broken pipes, flooding from storms, malfunctioning appliances, and human error like overflowing toilets or sinks. Everyone at some point in their lives deals with water damage.
 
When water damage happens to you, do not try to handle it yourself. Our trained and experienced technicians at SERVPRO OF MEDINA  have the proper tools to do the job in your home correctly the first time. We can extract any standing water from the affected areas using high-powered pumps and wet/dry vacuums. The process includes removing carpeting, furniture, and other items out of the way so they can also be cleaned and dried.  After the water extraction is complete, the next step can start.
 
Structural drying is next. Our trained staff use heavy-duty fans and dehumidifiers strategically placed throughout the area for the best drying possible. We can tell which areas need to be dried, as water tends to seep into every nook and cranny. Ensuring the area is totally dry is our business. Once each inch is dry, we can go ahead with the next step.
 
Cleaning and the prevention of mold are next during the process of water damage restoration. Special cleaners and mold deterrents are used. Each area that was submerged in water is cleaned and sanitized, which keeps mold from growing, plus remove any odors. Our cleaning supplies leave behind a clean, fresh scent which you can be quite happy and satisfied with. They are not overpowering, or just cover up the smell from dirty water.
  At this stage is where you get to see your home returned to its state pre loss. It is our number one priority that your home has a look and feel like it had before the water damage occurred.
 
So do not hesitate to contact us at SERVPRO OF MEDINA when tragedy strikes. We are always here to help 24/7 1-800-933-7179
