SERVPRO was called to a home in Cleveland, Ohio because the kitchen ceiling had collapsed. After a thorough inspection by a structural engineer since there were no water leaks to be found, cleanup could begin, and a new ceiling installed.

Does Your South Euclid Commercial Building Need Roof Repair?

Damaged roof shingles Believe it or not, many businesses let their buildings go too long with a bad roof.

Believe it or not, many businesses let their buildings go too long with a bad roof. Many times, businesses may have a leak in their roof, dry rot, etc. and go without getting it taken care of. This is dangerous and can be a risk for your business. Why may you ask? With a roof that cannot withstand the weather, this creates a higher risk of water damage occurring in your building. The roof will not be able to withstand harsh weather climates, therefore a disaster is more likely to occur in your business.

Many companies stand confident in the fact that they have insurance, and they will surely pay for damages and take care of them if they were to ever occur. However, this is not always the case. If your business has a roof that you have been negligent of taking care of and due to this damage occurring to the interior of your building, insurance surely will not take care of it. Once you file a claim to the insurance, they will send an insurance adjuster to inspect the damage. Once they see that your roof needed some TLC, you will then be held responsible for the damage.

6 Things to Look Out for After a Fire in Your Lyndhurst Home

House damaged from fire Fires are quite common in homes and with that there are a lot of steps to take to get to full recovery.

Fires are quite common in homes and with that there are a lot of steps to take to get to full recovery. Fires are not something that are often talked about. Here are some Tips to help you recover from a fire.

How to Check for Structural Damage

  • Check the outside of your home before you enter. Look for loose power lines, broken or damaged gas lines, foundation cracks, missing support beams or other damage. Damage on the outside can indicate a serious problem inside. Ask a building inspector or contractor to check the structure before you enter.
  • If the door is jammed, don’t force it open – it may be providing support to the rest of your home. Find another way to get inside.
  • Damaged locks should be taken apart and wiped with oil. If locks can’t be removed, squirt machine oil through a bolt opening or keyhole, and work the knob to distribute the oil. Hinges should also be thoroughly cleaned and oiled.
  • Sniff for gas. If you detect natural or propane gas, or hear a hissing noise, leave the property immediately and get well away from it. Call the fire department after you reach safety.
  • If you have a propane tank system, turn off all valves and contact a propane supplier to check the system out before you use it again.
  • Check for smoke and embers throughout the home, including the attic.
