Who Handles Sewer Cleanup and Restoration in Warren?
We also have 24/7 emergency service available! Sewage backup should be considered an emergency and dealt with quickly as possible.
Though it may be disgusting and tough to talk about, contaminated water with waste and other harmful bacteria or viruses can find their way in Warren homes. Water from sewer system backups should be considered very dangerous. It can be harmful to your health; the water is grossly unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illness.
Special training and equipment are necessary to safely clean this type of contamination. SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County has just that! There are three types of contaminated water:
Category 1: “Clean Water”
This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.
Category 2: “Grey Water”
This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.
Category 3: “Black Water”
This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
We also have 24/7 emergency service available! Sewage backup should be considered an emergency and dealt with quickly as possible. We are the water damage restoration specialists with specific training and expertise to safely restore your home or business.

- 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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
