How To Deal With Leaky Pipes in Cuyahoga County

leaky pipes being fixed If you have water damage in Cuyahoga, call SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South today!

It’s no secret that water damage is bad, not only can it cost a lot of money to fix if left unmitigated, but it can also lead to the growth of molds that can cause health effects. Mold needs water to grow and can grow quickly if things like leaks and water damage aren’t fixed quickly, and that’s why it’s important to check for leaky pipes, and if you find one, it’s important to know how to fix it.

  1. The first thing you can do when fixing a leaky pipe is see where the water is coming from. If it’s coming from a loose coupling nut (the thing that holds pipes together), then it’s pretty easy to grab a wrench and tighten the nut, fixing your leak.
  2. If the leak is caused by a crack in the pipe itself, you will need to use either plumber’s tape, self-fusing silicone tape, or epoxy putty to fix it. These are easy to apply, just make sure the water is turned off then wrap the pipe if you’re using tape, or just apply putty to the pipe and give it some time to dry.

After fixing the pipe, make sure to clean up any standing water, and check back every day or every few days to make sure there is no more water or leaking.

If you’ve had water damage or mold growth due to a leaky pipe, call SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South and out professionals with take care of everything.

Three Ways Southern Cuyahoga Residents Can Prevent Water Damage

7/19/2021 (Permalink)

Leaking pipes causing damage to drywall If you have a leak and need water damage cleanup and repair in Southern Cuyahoga, give SERVPRO a call!

Having to deal with water damage is awful. The time, the cost and the insurance hassles are such a pain to deal with. Because of this, we can all agree it is easier to prevent water damage rather than try to deal with it after it has happened. Of course, if you have water damage in your Southern Cuyahogahome and need water damage mitigation near you, the best thing you can do is call the experts at SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South. But if this has not happened yet, you should take these three steps to making sure your home stays safe and dry! 

  1. Learn Where Your Shut Off Valve Is 

It is important for you and for everyone living in a household to know where the water shutoff valve is for the entire house. This way, if something goes wrong, anyone can quickly turn off the water and prevent too much damage.  

  1. Regularly Check for Leaks 

While it may seems like just a small amount of water, a leaky tap can leak up to eight gallons a day. Not only will that become expensive very quickly, but it will also cause significant water damage to your home and create the perfect conditions for mold to grow. Every few weeks check around sinks and appliances for leaking pipes or standing water.  

  1. Check Your Roof 

The easiest way to see if your roof is leaking is to go into your attic when it is raining and shine a flashlight around to look for shiny spots. If you find one, mark the area. Usually, it is best to contact an expert and let them repair your roof. You do not want to do it wrong and risk causing more damage.  

Remember, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. But, if you need water damage mitigation in Southern Cuyahogathen be sure to call SERVPRO!

As you’ve probably noticed, it has been raining a lot the past few days, and the best thing you can do when it rains is to be prepared. After a storm, it’s good to check and make sure that your property is undamaged and there isn’t any water where there shouldn’t be, because that could lead to mold.   

What To Look For  

  • Standing water in places where it shouldn’t be, such as the basement, attic and garage  
  • Discoloration or water stains on the walls or ceilings  
  • Musty odors in the building  

Water itself can cause foul smells and wood to rot, but it can also cause mold to grow. Mold can cause serious structural damage, as well as health effects, so when you have mold growing, you need to act quickly for the sake of your customers, and your business.   

What Can I Do About It?  

Pick up that phone and call us! When you call SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South you can rest assured knowing our experts will act quickly, taking a methodical and systematic approach to identifying your problem and eliminating it from your building as quickly as possible.

Quick Water Removal Can Reduce Damages

SERVPRO is “Faster to any size disaster,” and this quality provides many benefits for homeowners of waterlogged residences. When a pipe has burst apart, a tub has overflowed, or a drain backed up, your home needs to have that excess water removed as quickly as possible.

Homes in Independence, Solon and Strongsville that have excess water from disasters such as pipe failures and forgotten tubs dry out best when water removal services from SERVPRO are the first part of the entire process. Pumping out any water that is visible upon our arrival helps us gain a better visual so we can more easily assess the extent of the overall damage.

Larger amounts of porous materials require more aggressive drying methods than materials that are less porous. Our experience benefits homeowners in many kinds of disasters that can damage a home by giving us insight into how best proceed in almost any type of situation imaginable, and overflowing toilets and tubs, exploding water heaters, burst pipes, and flooding from natural sources are only a few of those catastrophes.

Removing water starts the process, but then we need to move toward removing the moisture that has escaped into the air through evaporation. This moisture can find its way into every part of your home and create problems later unless it is captured and removed. Dehumidifiers, heaters, air movers, and even open windows can work wonders when used together. Moisture meters provide us with a beginning reading of areas in your home that are compared to later readings, showing us our progress in drying out your home.

When dry, remaining problems can still exist, such as unusual odors. This is because odors are caused by particles, that although tiny, produce smells when they have been disturbed. We can rectify this problem with odor control methods. Other problems that can remain behind include over-stretched carpeting, and we can fix that problem, also.

Because floors are always saturated in a situation where standing water exists, we take great care in ensuring that these surfaces are completely dry. This prevents warping of wooden floors and sub-flooring. Otherwise, walking in your home may soon become hazardous for your family and guests.

In situations that have left your home partially submerged, call us, SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South at (440) 237-0077.

We can begin water removal efforts so that your home is once again as it should be, perfectly dry. Accidents can occur at all hours of the day and night, and because of this, we are always available to take your call.

Drying Wood Floors Fast in Strongsville

Salvaging hardwood floors from water damage in Northeast Ohio

While most insurance policies offer coverage for replacing floors, there are many situations where homeowners can save money by drying instead, especially with solid hardwood. Other types of flooring, including engineered hardwood and laminate, are more prone to structural damage, delamination, and other issues that make replacement preferable. Solid hardwood's durability makes it more salvageable and safer to reinstall.  The durability saves you time and costs when it comes to reinstallation, staining, and refinishing.

If a sudden pipe leak causes water damage to floors in your Strongsville residence, professional disaster mitigation technicians at SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South can restore your flooring to its preloss condition. Commercial-grade equipment an eco-friendly, EPA-registered antimicrobial cleaners work in tandem to salvage floors, sub-flooring, and other structures in the home that are affected by water. Technicians always work with both homeowners and insurance adjusters to handle damages and restoration per local, state, and federal regulations.

SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South works fast not only to save flooring but also to preserve the layers of infrastructure that support it. Without proper mitigation, water damaged floors can become distorted and start cupping or buckling. These conditions can also become host to mold and wood rot that affect the safety and integrity of hardwood floors.  After dispatching a team to your home, they can use wand extractors and back-mounted pumps to collect any remaining standing water. Thermal imaging and penetrative and non-penetrative moisture measurement tools can be used to assess the extent of damage to floors and subfloors. We replace non-salvageable planks as needed.

Desiccant dehumidifiers are often necessary to tackle the remaining moisture in hardwood planks due to hardwood's low evaporation rate. These types of industrial dehumidifiers collect moisture from surrounding surfaces by passing it over desiccant materials like silica gel. Heat then evaporates the collected water into an air stream which vents outside of the home. If odors from water damage are evident, OSHA-approved cleaners and ultra low-volume (ULV) fogging deodorizers can be used to eliminate odor-causing particles.

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.

Let SERVPRO Assist You Now!

 If you find that your residential property has been exposed to water damage, time is of the essence.
