  • Check for any needed repairs

Not tending to small leaks in the home can not only cause major water damage…but mold can begin to spread as well. Keeping a close eye on the faucets, sump pumps, drains, and appliances can make all the difference in not having a water issue at the home. If you notice a small leak---it needs repaired immediately. If you are not sure where the water is coming from; it may be best to consult a plumber to identify the source.

  • Test the sump pump

This is one of the most important tips we give! The sump pump is vital to pumping out any excess water that enters the home. If it is not working---you could be in big trouble. Doing a simple test is all you need to determine if the sump is properly working. If you notice something array---call a service technician as soon as possible. If you have a lifetime warranty on it---most of the work should be covered, so there is no money out of pocket for the repairs.

  • Actually read you water bill

Many people do not look at the details of their water bill. Make sure to open it up and read the meter reading. Try to compare it to the last bill for a good indication on the median numbers used each month. If something does not seem right…it probably is not. Give them a call.

  • Shut off the water when you leave for vacation

Do you know where the main shut off valve is? You should! Firstly, this is where you would want to turn off the water in the case of a disaster. Secondly, it saves you money to turn the water completely off when you are gone. Thirdly, it eliminates a lot of hazards while you are away.

Time to Learn About Hail!

6/4/2021 (Permalink)

A yellow sign reads "Heavy Hail Storm Ahead" Whenever there’s severe weather like hail, there is usually some damage. Who is there to clean up? SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County is!

Hail is an extremely interesting weather event, and a dangerous one too. SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County is here to tell you all about hail’s formation, when it becomes dangerous, and how to stay safe!

Formation

Hail can sometimes be misconstrued as freezing rain. The National Geographic Society explains that freezing rain falls to the ground as rain and freezes as it moves towards the ground, while hail falls as a solid! Hail forms in the colder, upper parts of thunderstorm clouds when water droplets freeze together. That is why it is a solid, unlike freezing rain.

When is Hail Dangerous?

Hail is dangerous all the time, but hail comes in different sizes which can determine how harmful it can be to your Warren home. It is easy to classify hail when comparing them to common items. The National Weather Service says that hail that is “Marble-sized” and smaller is not severe. But when you get to “Dime-sized” and higher it is classified as severe. Their significant severe category consists of hail the size of softballs!

Hail Safety

Now that you know a little more about hail, let us go over some safety tips! If there is a hailstorm, do not go outside. Always stay indoors when hail is present. You should also close your drape and curtains to make sure no one experiences an injury from broken glass. If you are driving during a hailstorm, pull over and avoid traffic lights. You should also move away from windows.

Whenever there’s severe weather like hail, there is usually some damage. Who is there to clean up? SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County is! We have highly trained restoration technicians as well as industry leading equipment to handle any size disaster!

Can You Prepare for a Flash Flood in Warren?

5/24/2021 (Permalink)

A yellow sign reads "Road May Flood" SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull has the experience and equipment to get your Warren home to preloss condition fast.

Flash floods are tricky, they come out of nowhere, and are dangerous for homeowners in Warren. Luckily, SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County is here with a guide on how you can prepare for a flash flood. You will learn what a flash flood is, how they happen, and some ways you can protect yourself during one.

What Even is a Flash Flood?

The National Weather Service defines a flash flood as, “flooding that begins within 6 hours, and often within 3 hours, of heavy rainfall or any other cause.” They are typically caused by these two major events; major rainfall from thunderstorms or from broken dams or levees.

What Threats do Flash Floods Pose?

Flash flooding can turn normal streams and creeks into fast paced torrents of water. You should be careful if you are located near one or are traveling near one during a thunderstorm. Likewise, flash flooding can cover roads and highways which can be very dangerous! On rare occasions, landslides may pop up due to flash flooding.

Staying Safe During a Flash Flood

It is important to listen to warnings and local officials, but these floods can pop up without warning. You should find shelter right away if you see or suspect a flash flood. You should also avoid traveling, and certainly do not walk, swim, or drive through flood waters. Remember, only 6 inches of moving water can knock someone over. Listen to officials and check out this full Flood Safety Guide to know exactly what to do during floods!
