A Hydroxyl Generator Can Help Remove Fire Odor from you Massillion, Ohio Home

5/4/2022 (Permalink)

Hydroxyl Generator SERVPRO of Northwest Stark County has advanced equipment to help remove smoke odor from your Massillion, Ohio home after a fire disaster.

A fire can produce an extreme odor that can linger in your Massillion, Ohio home. When our SERVPRO crews arrive to begin the fire, damage clean up and restoration process a Hydroxyl Generator is placed in the home. Our crews will remove all the non-salvageable items and clean the ceilings, walls, windows, doors, and floors. The salvageable contents will either be packed up and cleaned at the SERVPRO warehouse or cleaned on site depending on the severity of the fire.

What is a Hydroxyl Generator?

This state-of-the-art system sends UV rays (365nm) (emitted from a TiO2 photo-catalytic lamp) through an anatase-coated glass sleeve to trap vast amounts of titanium dioxide. Next, electron hole pairs form and react with water and oxygen, producing free electrons and hydroxyl radicals that, when dispersed by a fan, convert organic and inorganic gases and air pollutants into carbon dioxide and water. Translation: Stinky air is neutralized, and people do not have to leave their home.

When your home or business suffers from fire, soot, smoke, and odor damage SERVPRO of Northwest Stark County have the specialized fire restoration training needed to restore your home to pre-fire condition. Every fire damage is unique, and requires a specific solution, but the general process stays the same.

Flooding Can Occur During Winter in Your Canton, Ohio Home

2/3/2022 (Permalink)

Icicles Roof SERVPRO is available throughout Canton, Ohio to help you if winter weather damages your properties. Contact us today at 330-497-4600.

The ground hog saw his shadow, so we have 6 more weeks of winter. We will probably experience some more cold weather and snow accumulation. Just remember that SERVPRO of Northwest Stark County is available if your property suffers damage due to the cold weather.

When we experience frigid temperatures for long periods of time, water supply pipes that are not well insulated can freeze and burst. If left unnoticed the damage to the home can be catastrophic even requiring homeowners to move out temporarily while extensive repairs are completed. 

Another type of damage from winter weather can come from ice dams. An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms along the edge of your roof. The problem is, these ice dams can force water up under your roof's shingles. And this may cause water to leak into your attic, ceiling or wall, soaking your insulation, drywall and paint. Ice dams can also damage your roof and gutters. If you see large icicles hanging from one particular area of your home this may indicate an ice dam.

Regardless of the Winter Storm, We Can Help

Cold weather and winter storms can cause significant damage with little warning. Regardless of the type of storm, SERVPRO can handle any size disaster. During catastrophic storms and major events, our Disaster Recovery Team can respond quickly with additional resources.

Call us now! SERVPRO of Northwest Stark County are winter weather damage restoration specialists. We are always Here to Help, 24/7. Give us a call at 330-467-4600 for immediate assistance or visit our Website!

Winter Storm Damage that Can Happen to Your Massillion, OH Commercial Building

1/10/2022 (Permalink)

Hallway Water Water damage at a commercial building in Massillion, Ohio.

A commercial building owner needs to take the proper precautions to ensure that his structure is safe during a winter storm. A winter storm can cause extensive damage to diverse types of structures, and commercial properties are among the structures that can suffer extensive damage. Wet, heavy snow, high winds, freezing rain and frigid temperatures combine to create conditions that can cause structural damage. The following are three types of damage that a commercial property owner could experience because of a winter storm. Being prepared is the key before the impending stormy weather strikes.

Collapsed roofs

If your commercial building has a flat roof, there is an increased chance that it will collapse during a winter storm. The buildup of ice and heavy snow on a flat roof can cause it to buckle under the excessive weight. A roof collapse can not only cause extensive and costly damage to your building, but there is also the potential for it to injure anyone who may be inside the building.

Leaky roofs

A collapse is not the only way that the roof of your commercial property can be damaged during a winter storm. Snow and ice can cause leaks to develop in the roof. These leaks are most often the result of ice dams. Ice dams form when a ridge of ice forms along the edge of a roof. This ice prevents the melting snow and ice from draining properly from the roof. As a result, the water has no place else to go but behind the ice dam, down through the roof until it finally exits through the ceiling of your property.

Leaking roofs can cause extensive damage to your property and can be expensive to repair.

Frozen and burst pipes

When the temperature plummets to below freezing levels, there is an increased probability that the water pipes in your commercial building could freeze When pipes freeze, the water held within them expands, and pipes can only expand so much. Avoid flooding and burst pipes by making sure all your existing freeze-protection devices and alarms are in good working order. Test freeze stats and valves before the weather gets cold, wrap pipes and faucets in unheated or minimally heated areas of the building and seal cracks and openings around exposed pipes. 

Winter is closing in and colder weather is right around the corner. Before you suffer a water damage you should check your commercial property for areas that may need additional insulation, heating, or other attention that will prevent freezing weather from penetrating your property and potentially freezing water pipes in the process. Depending upon the size of your commercial property this type of damage can result in thousands of dollars in damage and may require many weeks of construction to repair.
