Community Fourth of July Parade in Poland, OH Our fleet in the parade lineup during the downpour

On Friday, June 30th Poland celebrated Independence day with the local community. There were many festivities to enjoy that went on for two days. It all started with the annual Strawberry Festival at the Poland Presbyterian Church. The church has held the festival since 1950 which brings money to the youth groups so they can do mission trips and other events.

At 7pm on Friday the Fireman’s Parade started down Youngstown-Pittsburgh Road where kids collected candy. Before the parade started, at approximately 6:50 pm it began to downpour and continued to rain for the whole parade. We walked the parade in the rain handing out candy to the kids who toughed out the downpour. Weather it’s rain or shine we are there for you! We had a great time and were happy to see the dedicated families out there celebrating Independence Day with us in the rain! See you next year!

Air Duct and HVAC Cleaning in Poland, Ohio

6/13/2017 (Permalink)

During the summer season, most homeowners prefer utilizing air condition for their homes.
Many homeowners dismiss the fact that their air ducts might be filled with dust or contained with mold. Cleaning your air ducts will provide cleaner air circulating throughout the structure making it easier to breathe. It is highly recommended to consider having them cleaned if anyone living in the house has asthma or allergies. While having your air ducts professionally cleaned providing cleaner air, it can also reduce the potential for future mold growth.

SERVPRO of East Mahoning County professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.
