When the team left our warehouse, Houston needed all the help they could get because of how terrible the damages were. In their interview, Andrew and Katie told WFMJ's Lindsey McCoy more about the team's journey as well as stressing the importance of helping those in their time of need. Watch Andrew and Katie's full interview on WFMJ's website!

Simple Tips to Prevent Water Damage in Your Edgewood, Ohio Home

9/15/2017 (Permalink)

Over 14,000 people in the United States experience a water damage emergency at home or work each day. Whether it is from rain, a leaking pipe or natural disaster, it is important to the steps to prevent water damage in your home. Here are some easy steps you can take today.

  • If you garden, be careful where you plant. Some trees and plants have invasive roots. If you plant close to your sprinkler system, drainage field, pipes, and septic tanks these roots may grow into them causing to clog your water lines.
  • Clean out your roof gutters! This is extremely important. This time of year, the leaves are starting to turn which means mounds of leaves will take over your yard and roof. Weekly, clean out your gutters to make sure they are unclogged and ready to operate. If they are clogged on a rainy day, rain water could spill into your home’s foundation.
  • Watch your water bill. Next time your bill comes, take a close at the number. If you notice your usage jumps from one month to the next, without explanation, this might mean there is a leak in your home.

Even though you can take precautionary steps to prevent water damage in your home, disaster can strike at any time. At SERVPRO of Ashtabula and Northern Trumbull Counties, we make sure your furniture and home is restored to its original state. It will feel like your accident never even happened!
