Disaster Recovery

Have you ever wondered about the green SERVPRO trucks you probably see driving through Chagrin Falls, OH? You may know the service teams clean up after water emergencies for homeowners, but you probably didn’t know the teams also provide nationwide disaster recovery help in the following three ways.

Here to Help

No matter where the flood, tornado, temperature drop, or hurricane is located, there are over 1,700 SERVPRO local franchises that are ready to help when the corporate office calls. Furthermore, the corporate office can aid any type of disaster with crucial equipment that the individual companies may not have after a disaster strikes.


“Like it never even happened.”

Not only is SERVPRO’s corporate office able to rally the individual franchises to a disaster, but they can also use their many years of experience to direct the teams about where to go and how best to provide aid in the disaster scenarios. The goal of any of the specially IICRC trained franchise employees is to create a disaster scene that is “Like it never even happened.”

Whether the disaster is local or on the other side of the state, SERVPRO franchises and their corporate officers are both there to help. No wonder most insurance companies call SERVPRO to help their insured clients at the first sign a disaster recovery is needed.

SERVPRO of Geauga County provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays.

Ice damage in Chagrin Falls?

2/16/2021 (Permalink)

If you have frozen pipes or ice damage, you might be thinking of waiting until the spring to have it repaired. Actually, you shouldn't wait for repairs, this could lead to far more severe damages. Instead, you should seek out professional help as quickly as possible.


If you are facing a specific problem such as a roof leak, hail damage, or ice damage, it is important to understand that many of these problems can be prevented before you need a roof repair. When you meet with your home restoration professional, ask about ways to prevent damage from happening to your home once more. Many homeowners simply don't have the resources to prevent damage to their home before they experience ice damming or a roof leak, but the right water restoration professional can guide you in taking preventative measures to care for your house.

Although some problems, including those requiring a flood pump, can't always be prevented, you may be surprised to find that you're able to minimize future damage to your home, regardless of where you live.

If you do experience a storm event, SERVPRO of Geauga County provides emergency services, mitigation, fire, and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays.

1/28/2021 (Permalink)

Does your fireplace make a loud crackling or popping sound? Does it sound like a raging bonfire you experienced as a child while camping?  Can you see thick black smoke rolling out of your chimney top? These are all sign that you may be experiencing a chimney fire.

Here are a few ways to prevent this from happening:

  • Schedule an annual chimney inspection
  • Never use a fireplace that has a damaged chimney liner.
  • Have a chimney cap installed.
  • Make sure there is not restricted air supply.
  • Only burn dry, cured wood.  That means wood that has dried for 6-12 months. 
  • Do not burn treated or construction wood.  It can be chemically treated and produce dangerous fumes when burned.
  • Never use gasoline or kerosene
  • Never overload your fireplace.
  • Never leave a fire unattended, especially around children.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher on hand just in case.
  • Build your fire slowly.

If a fire does happen, first call the fire department. Once the fire has been put out you can contact the highly trained professionals at SERVPRO of Geauga County. SERVPRO of Geauga County provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays.

Frozen Pipes in Chagrin Falls?

1/13/2021 (Permalink)

Burst pipe due to freezing. This line was frozen, expanded, and then burst. This created over $15000.00 in damages for a local Geauga County resident.

Some would agree, winter here in Geauga County has been pretty, mild. However, forecasters are expecting a drop in temperature next week. They say we will be going from mid-30’s and even 40’s, to temperatures below average. Such fluctuation in temperature, can cause pipes to freeze and break. The frozen pipe expands and splits which then allows the water to escape under pressure. If not found right away the water can create significant damage to your property. After discovery, turn off the water, contact a plumber, and call SERVPRO of Geauga County.  As a note, make sure to keep the busted water / pipeline (most insurance companies need to see the source of loss) This also helps the insurance company determine that this was caused by frozen pipelines verse age rot, damage etc. Most insurance companies will cover damage from a frozen pipe, provided the home or business was occupied and the heat was on.

SERVPRO of Geauga County provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays.
