Electrical Fires Can Cause Major Damage to Homes in Akron, Ohio

2/3/2020 (Permalink)

Light Bulb Electricity can cause fires to homes and business in Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, Tallmadge, Stow and surrounding communities.

Each year, there are 40,000 residential fires due to electrical wiring, claiming more than 350 lives, causing thousands of injuries from shocks and burns, creating 2 million and personal property damage. Electrical receptacles are responsible for 40 deaths and 5,300 fires.

Electricity is our most mysterious form of energy. You can’t see it, hear it or smell it, but you sure can feel it!

Electricity seeks the easiest path to the ground, trying to find a conductor, such as metal, wet wood, or water. Humans are conductors, since 70% of the body is water. So, if a person touches an energized bare wire or faulty equipment while grounded, electricity will instantly pass through the body to the ground, causing a harmful, potentially fatal shock.

Don’t Be Shocked:

  • It is estimated that 70% electrocutions could be prevented.
  • 32% of all deaths caused by residential electrical systems are as a result of faulty cords and plugs.
  • Electrical burns to the mouth accounted for half of the injuries to young to your children.
  • Electricity can kill in one second.

Treat electricity with the respect it deserves. Never assume anything! If you experience an electrical fire, please call the professionals at SERVPRO of West Akron. We have years of know-how dealing with homes and businesses that have had extensive fire, soot and smoke damage, and we know what it takes to restore your Tallmadge, Stow, Cuyahoga Falls, Munroe Falls and Akron property, “Like it never even happened.” Call us 24 hours a day, no job is too small to big for our team.

Water Underneath a Dishwasher Can Cause Major Damage in Akron, Ohio

9/23/2019 (Permalink)

Dehumidifier in kitchen SERVPRO Dehumidifier in a kitchen that had water damage from a dishwasher supply line.

Water from a dishwasher can cause major water damage

A dishwasher is a staple appliance in most homes in Akron, Ohio. It saves us time from not having to wash dishes, glasses and cooking items by hand. Sometimes, you may even start the dishwasher before leaving your house to run errands. You may then come home to find that your kitchen is full of water.

Dishwashers have a seal that keeps the water inside the tub, but you can have a slow leak in the joints of the supply water line that runs the dishwasher or in the drain line beneath and after time the leak has caused mold to grow.  Since, the dishwasher is under the counter-tops and between cabinets overtime the water can do severe damage to the sub-floor, walls and cabinets. If water is still present, then the water needs to be cleaned up and dried out. If mold is seen that mold remediation may need to be done.

Your dishwasher leak can cause water damage and the following may need to be repaired or even replaced:

  • Tile
  • Wood
  • Laminate
  • Electrical wiring
  • Drywall
  • Wallpaper
  • Paint

The moment you notice your dishwasher is or has leaked, make sure to first turn off the dishwasher. If you find water on the floor use a towel or mop to clean it up, you might need to pull out your dishwasher to get any water that has pooled beneath the dishwasher itself. Calling a local water restoration company like SERVPRO of West Akron is recommended to make sure the water you don’t see is also dried up to ensure that you don’t have any moisture in your floorboards, which can quickly develop mold. 

We are available 24 hours a day at 330-867-5723.
