Fire Damage Summer Grilling Fire Safety Tips Stay safe while grilling this summer! If you need emergency cleanup from soot/smoke or fire damage call SERVPRO of Ashtabula & North Trumbull Counties

Summer is a great time to spend outdoors with friends and family enjoying camping, cook outs, vacations, picnics and the 4th of July celebrations. With those activities comes the risk of fire related injuries and damage. 

Here are a few tips provided by the U.S. Fire Administration on Grilling Fire Safety

  • Only use your grill outside
  • Keep grill at least 3 feet from siding, deck rails and eaves
  • Clean your grill after each use to remove grease build up that could start a fire
  • Open your gas grill before lighting
  • Keep a 3-foot safe zone around your grill for children and pets
  • Place coals from your grill in a metal can with lid after they have cooled
  • Keep watch over your grill, fire pit and patio torches at all times. Do not walk away from them while they are lit
  • Use long handled BBQ tools
  • Wear short sleeves or roll up long sleeves during cooking and do not wear loose fitting clothing that could catch on fire

Stay safe while grilling this summer at Geneva on the Lake Ohio! If you experience smoke, soot or fire damage, call SERVPRO of Ashtabula & North Trumbull Counties for immediate response and emergency cleanup services 440-319-3360

Water Damage Cleanup in Roaming Shores, Ohio

5/25/2018 (Permalink)

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are 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 Ashtabula area 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

If water damage is not handled quickly and properly, it can cause severe damage to your home’s structure not to mention the potential harmful health effects of mold. 

We are Flooded Basement Specialists:

  • We are Available 24/7 
  • We’re a Preferred Vendor to many National Insurance Companies

Water mitigation is the process of reducing or preventing the amount of water damage that happens after a flood or a leak occurs in a home or building. Through the mitigation process, further damage -such as microbial growth- can be prevented. Water damage can be the result from excessive rain which can lead to roof leaks, foundation leaks or sump pump malfunctions, plumbing issues such as a broken pipe, burst supply line or toilet overflow, and many more situations.

3 Categories of Water Damage

These categories are defined by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). SERVPRO professionals are certified professionals by IICRC and are trained to properly handle water damage. Based off of the category of water, different processes will be required in order to make it safe to be in again.

  • Category 1: Clean liquid from sanitary source (water fountain, sink, etc.)
  • Category 2: Liquid from unsanitary source (toilet overflow, dishwasher, etc.) that can cause illness if ingested
  • Category 3: Liquid from unsanitary source (sewer backup, river, stagnant pool, etc.) that could cause severe illness or death if ingested

SERVPRO of Ashtabula & North Trumbull County is available 24/7 for any emergency cleanup that is needed in your area! We understand the stress that you endure when water damage occurs in your home. We work to get you back to normal ASAP!

If you are experiencing water damage call us at (440) 319-3360 to begin the mitigation process and prevent secondary water damage from occurring.

Spider Webs After a Fire?

Fire Damage Spider Webs After a Fire? If you have fire damage of any capacity, call SERVPRO of Ashtabula & North Trumbull Counties for immediate response (440) 319-3360

After a fire, some customers are a little embarrassed when they see what appears to be giant spider webs covered in soot in the corners of their rooms. These "spider webs" are actually not spider webs at all! In areas of low circulation, smoke or soot particles can form what we call "soot tags."

Soot from synthetic/petroleum based sources that have burned, cling to each other like magnets creating chains of soot. These webs are usually found in corners like spider webs and here’s why. Smoke or soot gravitates towards cold as the air is seeking equilibrium within its environment. These areas tend to be on the perimeter of the ceiling on an outside wall because those walls are generally cooler. Not only are those areas cooler, but the area near the ceiling is also a low area of concentration.

If you happen to find these after a fire, they are in no way indicative of your housekeeping!
