Storm hits Cleveland Heights hard as Microburst.

Fallen tree crushes guard rail by road Storm uprooted trees, causing limbs to fall on roads in Northeast Ohio

Recent Cleveland Heights Storm is being called a microburst and SERVPRO of Southern Cuyahoga  County was there to help. 

A microburst is a column of sinking air within a thunderstorm, typically less than 2 ½ miles in diameter, according to the NWS. During a microburst, wind speeds can reach or exceed 100 mph; that is roughly equivalent to an EF-1 tornado, the second-weakest category of tornado.

During this storm, the NWS measured strong winds high in the atmosphere. The thunderstorm pulled those winds down to ground level, causing the microburst.

The storm uprooted trees, causing limbs to fall on houses and cars. It also brought down power lines, leaving many residents without power in the immediate aftermath of the storm.

Should this happen to your property, call the professionals at:

The Mess Water can make in Southern Cuyahoga

Mold on Ceiling If Water damage is not addressed immediately Mold can grow quickly

Water Damage in Northeast Ohio is a serious property issue that homeowners should be fully cognizant of. By getting basic information about water damage and how to quickly eliminate it, you can help ensure that your residential property remains in excellent condition. 

Where Does Water Damage Come From?

 Water damage is a hazard that can result from many sources. First, water damage can arise as a result of natural disasters like hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, fires, etc. Additionally, water damage can result from unattended roof leaks, broken water lines, and sewer backups. Additionally, water . damage can result from flooding that generates rising waters which put your property underwater for several hours. In the event that the water contains any sewage, you and your loved ones will be exposed to several health hazards.

Structural and Property Damages

 One of the property challenges that results from water damage is structural issues. When your ceilings, walls, and floors are exposed to water, the structure of your property can become weak. Additionally, water has the ability to damage several of the structural elements on your property. These damages can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs.

Mold Growth

 According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), cleaning and drying your property within 24 to 48 hours of water damage is necessary for the prevention of mold growth. However, it's important to know that while you can start these processes to help eliminate or prevent mold, the fungus can grow in places you can't see. Some of these places include along ceilings and baseboards, underneath wallpaper, and behind the drywall.

The Health Hazards Of Mold Exposure

 Removing mold from your property as quickly and efficiently as possible is critical for the prevention of health hazards. Individuals who are repeatedly exposed to mold can suffer from a plethora of health issues, some of which include respiratory issues, allergic reactions, and asthma. Because the cleanup process can result in mold exposure, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) instruct individuals to wear an N-95 breathing mask during the procedure. Using eye protection and gloves is also advised.

Inferred Camera and Moisture Meter Tools of the trade SERVPRO of Southern Cuyahoga county uses to confirm your home is safe and dry.

SERVPRO of Southern Cuyahoga County serves the communities of Strongsville, Berea, Parma Heights, Middleburg Heights, Olmsted Falls, North Royalton and the surrounding communities. Properties with water damage rely on local technicians to perform a vital assessment, remediation, and restoration services. Contents and structure that suffers prolonged exposure to moisture can cause a chain of events which could result in permanent damages.

SERVPRO has technicians with qualifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifications (IICRC), an internationally recognized awarding body.  Certification from the IICRC means SERVPRO technicians can make professional, informed assessments of property damages. To make those evaluations, our technician's can use a variety of moisture measuring equipment to get a full picture of the extent of the issue. By measuring the scale of damage, we can ensure our work is as efficient as possible and that they prevent secondary issues from arising after treatment. 

Moisture meters can penetrate surfaces and assess saturation levels. This tool is useful if the property has been exposed to moisture for several hours or longer. Thermal imaging cameras use infrared to allow a restorer to spot moisture that may not be visible to the eye such as behind walls or under cabinets. Thermal Hygrometers measure relative humidity and can help ensure microbial growth is kept under control throughout the service. 

SERVPRO of Southern Cuyahoga County does calculated assessments to ensure your property’s restoration is tailored to its needs.  Complete documentation of all work performed, including pictures and moisture readings are recorded throughout the service and is passed on to your insurance company to process your claim.
