Sump Pumps

3/22/2019 (Permalink)

Not sure who thought of the idea of leaving a large open crock in the basement of a structure, running footer tile into it and then installing a pump into the crock to pump water out of the structure.  That said, these pumps can be found in the majority of basements and are known to fail.  Either the pump itself burns out from overuse or age, the power goes out, or too much water gains entry and the pump cannot keep up.  This can especially be bad if the affected area is finished or has a lot of personal property stored in the affected areas.  SERVPRO of Barberton/Norton is here to assist with mitigation, reconstruction and contents services to make it “Like it never even happened."

Refrigerator Line Leaking?

Water Damage Refrigerator Line Leaking? Damage caused by the water supply line to the refrigerator

Water is the most common cause of damage we handle at SERVPRO of Barberton/Norton.  The most popular offender has been found to be the  the water supply lines to a refrigerator.  Even the smallest pin hole can cause a lot of damage to your home or business.  These leaks usually go unnoticed until the water damage makes it out from under the refrigerator.  Once discovered the water may have had time to ruin not only the flooring but may have had time to cause damage to the kitchen cabinets and walls.  It is not uncommon for the water to find its way into adjoining rooms or the floor below.  In cases of multifamily or commercial space the water may travel the path of least resistance affecting other units. 

Frozen Pipes

Water Damage Frozen Pipes Splits in the copper show that the pipe was frozen

SERVPRO of Barberton/Norton has been very busy with this Winter’s Polar Vortex.  The extreme cold has caused pipes to freeze and break all over our service area.  These pipes do not care if you are home with the heat on or enjoying the sunny south as a Snowbird.  The frozen pipe expands and splits which then allows the water to escape under pressure. If not found right away the water damage can add up into tens of thousands of dollars. After discovery, turn off the water and call SERVPRO of Barberton/Norton.  If a plumber has been there, have them save the pipe as this type of break differs from a pipe that leaked from wear and/or age.  Most insurance companies cover the damage from a frozen pipe, including the plumbing as long as the home or business was occupied and there is documentation that the heat was on.
