Storm Clouds Storms can cause damage to your home and its important to educate yourself on disaster safety tips.

Storms are very unpredictable and can be deadly. A severe storm can produce large hail, severe wind and heavy rainfall and leave your home with water and structural damage.  Its important to educate yourself on disaster safety tips before the next storm.

Severe Weather & Disaster Safety Tips

  • When at home or in a building and threatening weather approaches, go to the basement or interior hall. Stay away from windows.
  • Stay protected from lightning by seeking cover inside substantial buildings (one with a full enclosed roof, walls, and floor) and hard-topped vehicles.
  • During a forecast of severe flooding, be prepared to evacuate. Get to high ground.
  • Never attempt to walk or drive through flood waters. The water can be much deeper than it appears.
  • The safest place to be during a tornado is a basement. If the building has no basement, or cellar, go to a small room (a bathroom or closet) on the lowest level of the structure, away from windows, and toward the center of the building.
  • If you’re in a car or mobile home when a tornado approaches, leave immediately. If you cannot locate underground shelter, lie flat in a gully or ditch.

A house fire is one of the most frightening and disruptive events that can impact a family. After surviving a fire, it is crucial to remain calm and take the steps that will help you recover from this traumatic event. Enlisting the prompt support of family and emergency service professionals, like SERVPRO, can really make a difference in the recovery process. 

Steps to Take Before Fire Restoration Specialists Arrive at Your Massillion, Ohio Home

The best way for you to help your Massillion, Ohio fire restoration project is to call in professional help as soon as possible after a disaster. Getting technicians on the site before damages set in can have monumental effects on restorations’ speed and cost. However, there are a few other things that you may do to help us out before we arrive.

  • Place towels on the floors - One of the ways that damage can spread to other parts of the house is underfoot. By placing clean towels and sheets around the damaged area, you can create walkways that stop ash from getting tracked around the house.
  • Wash your plants - If you have any live houseplants, give them a quick wash. Even light fire residue can harm these living, breathing organisms. The sooner that ash and smoke can be washed off of them, the healthier they will be later on.
  • Change your HVAC filters – Chances are, much of the smoke and ash got sucked into your HVAC system. While SERVPRO technicians are trained and certified to clean these systems out, you should still do all you can to avoid spreading residues around the house. A quick filter swap could stop ash from spreading to new parts of your home.
  • Stay safe – Fires may affect the structural components of your home. If you notice burned supports, falling ceiling material, loose wiring, or any other potential hazards, stay away from the area. Our experienced personnel can identify and contain these threats without any risk to you.

SERVPRO of Northwest Stark County stays ready on a 24/7 basis to provide high-quality fire restoration services to Massillion, Ohio homeowners. Call us on our emergency line at 330-497-4600.

Safety Tips on Smoke Alarms for your Massillion, Ohio Home

6/21/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke Alarm SERVPRO of Northwest Stark County are experts in smoke damage clean up and restoration.

Smoke alarms can save your life!

Here are some key tips on smoke alarm fire safety:

  • Smoke alarms are a key part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.
  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, hear and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. Install alarms in the basement. Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound.
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms.
  • It is best to use interconnected smoke alarms. When one smoke alarm sounds, they all sound.
  • Test all smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Todays smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multiuse of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms.
  • A smoke alarm should be on the ceiling or high on a wall. Keep smoke alarms away from the kitchen to reduce false alarms. They should be at least 10 feet from the stove.
  • People who are hard of hearing or deaf can use special alarms. These alarms have strobe lights and bed shakers.
  • Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
