5/6/2021 (Permalink)

Picture shows a home on fire with a closeup of the roof Once away from a burning building, it is imperative to stay outside.

Residential fires occur every day throughout the United States. One of the deadliest mistakes a homeowner can make is to go back into a burning home after belongings or even pets. SERVPRO of East Mahoning County wants to keep our residents safe. Here is what you shouldn’t do.

The National Fire Protection Association website states that once away from a burning building, it is imperative to stay outside.

Firefighters and 911 can assist in the retrieval of belonging, pets, and even children.

Fire 9 Prevention states, “Carbon monoxide is a major product of combustion. Carbon monoxide or CO combines with your red blood cells, reduces oxygen to your brain and attacks your central nervous system. Effects of CO poisoning include impaired judgment and deterioration of motor skills (especially your ability to walk.) So, your ability to make sound decisions may be diminished by the CO you inhaled exiting the building. Furthermore, your coordination may be so impaired you will not be able to perform whatever you plan to do back inside the fire.”

SERVPRO of East Mahoning County specializes in fire and water damage restoration. We have the specific damage restoration training, personnel, and equipment and can quickly restore your home so it looks "Like it never even happened."

What To Do After A Fire

  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
  • Clean and protect chrome with light coating of petroleum jelly or oil.
  • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves.
  • Change HVAC filter.
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers.

Sleep with Your Door Closed at Your East Mahoning County Home

3/8/2021 (Permalink)

Picture shows a man sleeping with a door open The reason closing your door is so effective is because it stops some of the spread of fire due to the decrease of oxygen.

Did you know that most fires happen, at your home, between the hours of 11 PM and 7 AM when most people are sleeping? Allow SERVPRO of East Mahoning County give you a small, yet lifesaving, fire tip for those bedtime hours.

Research from UL’s Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FRSI) “shows that closing your bedroom door helps prevent a fire from spreading, lessens smoke damage and could even save lives.”

The reason closing your door is so effective is because it stops some of the spread of fire due to the decrease of oxygen. It also reduces smoke level toxins. Stopping the toxins is almost even more beneficial because deaths occur more often than not due to smoke inhalation.

When the bedroom door is shut the temperature will typically stay below 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the oxygen stays at a liveable percentage, and less toxic carbon monoxide levels reach the inside of the room.

All of these factors are the exact opposite when the bedroom door is open. Flames will reach the inside of the room more quickly since there is no barrier, the temperature can go as high as 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, the oxygen level percentage goes to a non-breathable level, and dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can reach the inside of the room.

Back in the 80’s, the suggested time to get out of the home was recommended at 15-20 minutes. Today, the recommended time is limited to no more than 3 or 4 minutes. Now that is a major difference! Want to know the reason newer homes burn faster? Read our blog titled “The Dangers of New Construction Homes in Canfield”. Three to four minutes does not sound like a lot of time, especially if you are ill-prepared. Fully protect yourself and your family by creating a fire safety plan, checking your smoke detectors often, and have a plan to close your doors at night.  Should your Youngstown home or business suffer from fire or fire damage, call the restoration experts at SERVPRO of East Mahoning County.  

In addition to fire, smoke, and soot damage, your Youngstown home or business may also suffer from water damage as a result of the firefighting efforts. This type of damage can be especially upsetting and destructive for your family to process. You may feel stressed, confused, and vulnerable, so you’ll need a caring expert to guide you through this crisis.

Our project managers will be with you every step of the way, from tearing out damaged materials to putting them back. As a local restoration and construction company, we pride ourselves on providing honest and high-quality service to our customers and community.

Fire Drills: Not Just For Schools

8/31/2020 (Permalink)

image of school safety drills graphic Fire drills are an important part of working in a commercial building as they keep people safe in case of an emergency.

Most everyone remembers fire drills in elementary school. The teacher prepares the class, line up single file and walk quietly and quickly outside.

But think about the last time you had a fire drill in the workplace?

Fire drills are an important part of working in a commercial building as they keep people safe in case of an emergency. It is important to be prepared to help prevent any injuries or fatalities.

Below are some fire drill tips for the workplace:

  1. Prepare an evacuation plan

It is important to have a plan in place before you need one. It is important to be as detailed as possible to limit confusion. Outline the exit routes and make a clear outline of actions employees will need to take to get to the escape destination. Make sure to include phone numbers for commercial building restorations as well. 

  1. Train and Communicate with your Employees

Once you have completed the plan, it is important to effectively communicate and introduce it to your staff. Emphasize the importance of the fire drill and make sure everyone follows the plan. Prepare your employees in advance, then have them practice.

  1. Practice

By running the drills, everyone involved will feel safer in case of an actual fire. It will help to set some goals with your staff that you hope to achieve by running the drills. The goal should identify and measure how well the plan works. Make sure to assess the success and adapt your goals for next time to improve performance.

  1. Follow-Up

Once running a drill, be sure to follow-up on any corrections. Revisit the plan as needed and make adjustments.

Regular fire drills help ensure everyone’s safety in case of an actual fire. If there is an actual fire, SERVPRO of East Mahoning County is here to help! We are dedicated to helping our community and want everyone to stay as safe possible.

Your Burning Questions about Fire Damage Answered

7/31/2020 (Permalink)

Fire in Kitchen with SERVPRO logo and "Fire Damage?" Let the professionals at SERVPRO of East Mahoning County restore your fire damaged belongings!

After the flames and smoke clear, most people are left wondering, “What do I do now?” To help you overcome the despair and confusion of a fire, SERVPRO is here to answer some of your most common questions!

  1. Can I live in my home immediately after a fire?

If the damage to your home was not extensive, you should be able to live in your home. Smoke, soot, and water damage can all make a home uninhabitable.

You should always let the fire department survey the damage before re-entering your home. If your utilities are turned off by the fire department, do not attempt to turn them back on yourself.

If you do need temporary housing, friends and family may be able to provide that or The Salvation Army or The Red Cross Organization should be able to help you.

  1. Should I throw away all my food after a fire?

You should plan to throw away all the food remaining in your kitchen.

The fire department most likely turned off your electricity, so the food in your fridge and freezer is probably spoiled.

Be sure to inspect and thoroughly clean all your cutlery and cookware as smoke and firefighting chemicals can cause serious illness if ingested. Always error on the side of caution. 

  1. Can I save my furniture?

Furniture is an investment and it will probably be one of your first concerns after the fire is extinguished.

Even after fire, smoke, and water have damaged your furniture, it can most likely be salvaged.

SERVPRO of East Mahoning County is here to help you get back to everyday life after a fire. Our professionals will come in and inspect the damage and develop a plan. We are fire and water restoration experts and are available 24/7.

Do You Close Your Bedroom Door At Night?

6/9/2020 (Permalink)

Comparison of open and closed doors during a fire Take a look at the difference closing your bedroom door can have in a fire!

It is a simple question but the consequences of making the wrong choice might surprise you. Most people are not sure of the correct answer or they assume that the answer simply does not matter. In the case of a house fire – a closed bedroom door might save your life. Here is why:

Fires grow rapidly and expand exponentially in a matter of minutes. For a fire to grow it needs oxygen and a house with closed doors has a limited supply.

Forty years ago, people in a house fire had an estimated 17 minutes to get out of their house. Today, houses are furnished with synthetic materials and built with an open floor plan. This significantly decreases the amount of time people must safely escape from their burning home. Due to how fast the fire spreads people have about 3 minutes to get out of their homes.

According to a ten-year study conducted by the Underwriter Laboratories Firefighter Safety Research Institute, only 29% of Americans sleep with their door closed. “Close Your Door” is a national campaign asking people to take a pledge, promising to close their doors at night. The UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute did a demonstration to show the dramatic effect a closed door can have.

Some ways to prevent a fire in your home include:

Test smoke alarms once a month and replace batteries twice a year

Turn off and unplug hot hair tools

Never leave cooking food unattended on the stove top

Always blow out candles before leaving the room

Clean the lint out of the dryer tray after every load of laundry

Make a fire plan that includes escape routes

If fire or smoke damages your home, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of East Mahoning County. We pride ourselves on “Being faster to any disaster.” Our certified professionals are trained in fire damage and restoration and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

SERVPRO® Partners with First Responders to Provide Safer Workspaces

5/15/2020 (Permalink)

image of Fire Station and SERVPRO worker sanitizing the Fire truck parked SERVPRO® of East Mahoning County has taken the time to schedule complimentary sanitization cleanings for first responder vehicles and shared spaces.

As this unprecedented time remains among us, the battle we fight continues to provide silver linings. One of the areas that never seems to lose its place is the appreciation we show for the first responder line of work. In recent memory, the opportunities to show appreciation for fire, police, EMS & others has grown as each life altering event takes place.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, SERVPRO® of East Mahoning County has taken the time to schedule complimentary sanitization cleanings of first responder vehicles and work/life spaces. With the in an out nature of their work and the exposure to so many people and places each day, there was a strong unmet need to provide this service.

In sanitizing these spaces, first responders are free to move about the business of caring for others with less concern and fear of contracting a virus or unwanted bacteria. Flat surfaces, common touch points and commonly used areas are targeted for sanitization and disinfecting with a CDC registered, hospital grade chemical. Once the chemical is applied and the dwell time is met, the kill claims of these chemicals are quite high.

Keep in mind that chemicals being used to combat the Coronavirus have no record of proven success against this exact strain of virus. The restoration industry is relying on chemicals with a proven track record against similar (previous) viruses such as H1N1, SARS and EBOLA.

So, as we reach out to Fire, Police & EMS workers, keeping them healthy and safe is our priority. We continue to partner with these organizations everyday as we provide board-up and reconstruction services for the victims of fire.  Building a strong working relationship between first responders and restoration only benefits those in need of these services.

SERVPRO® of East Mahoning County is committed to the communities we serve. This commitment includes a strong relationship with community services such as fire, police & EMS. For a list of the services that SERVPRO of East Mahoning County provides, visit our website or call us at (330)-536-7477. We are a 24/7 emergency service company that is always Here to Help®.

Fire Starters We Often Forget About

4/24/2020 (Permalink)

image of a fire being put out by a person using a fire extinguisher As you you increase cooking, laundry and DIY's, hyper-vigilance becomes necessary.

As you continue to spend time quarantined at your Mahoning County residence, at home fire risks increase significantly. As you you increase cooking, laundry and DIY's, hyper-vigilance becomes necessary. Here are some things to look out for in order to avoid an in home fire.

1. Don’t forget about food in the oven. If you are baking, toasting or heating up anything in your oven, always set a timer and do not forget! Make it a habit to set a timer immediately after placing items in the oven. You could sit down to eat, do laundry or take a long shower and come out to smoke, oven damage and worst case scenario, a fire in your home. 

2.Keep anything that can catch fire away from your stove tops. This would include any mail or paper products, paper towels, napkins, wooden baskets, etc. 

3. Never leave any portable heaters or candles unattended. If you have kids or pets at home, be especially aware of this. Young children or animals can knock over a heater or candle and cause a fire to start and spread quickly. Additionally, do not leave space heaters on a rug or carpet. 

4. Keep matches and lighters out of your children’s reach. 

5. Make sure your smoke alarms are properly working. Change the batteries in them so you know they will detect smoke. Replace any smoke alarms that are over 10 years old and test your new alarm monthly. 

6. Washing machines are another potential fire starter that most people don't think of. Washers have capacitors that use oil. If the capacitor fails or ruptures, it can cause a fire. The drum bearing could also cause a fire if it breaks and creates friction that heats up and burns things nearby. Be sure to stay home when you are doing laundry to avoid any accidents in the laundry room.

7. Lastly, have a quick chat with your family about a fire safety plan and escape route. Discuss what doors to use and how to open windows if the doors are not accessible during a fire. You might never think it can happen to you. However, the biggest mistake we make in this situation is failing to prepare for a disaster. 

Feel free to reach out to us at SERVPRO of East Mahoning County. We are able to answer your fire damage questions 24/7. Call us at (330) 536-7477.

image of heavy flames with the SERVPRO rooftop logo embedded in the flames At SERVPRO of East Mahoning County, our first-responders have seen this scenario quite often and understand and empathize with the homeowner

If you have ever experienced the anxiety, devastation, and uncertainty of being in a house fire, you know there are few things more fearful. The smoke, soot and flames attack all areas of the property and likely render it unlivable. The homeowners are left to manage a range of emotions that can only be described as overwhelming.

As firefighters arrive and douse the structure and its contents with water, more damage occurs, and the chance of restoring the property become increasingly difficult. More than likely, the family is forced to come to grips with the idea that their home is at best temporarily unlivable. The thoughts now turn to where will we go.  Hotels? Stay with friends or family? What is the next move?

At SERVPRO of East Mahoning County, our first-responders have seen this scenario quite often and understand and empathize with the homeowner’s feelings of grief and uncertainty.

As firefighters deliver the news that the home will be boarded up, our SERVPRO team is prepared to try and soften the blow and deliver some sense of comfort to the family.

To make things just a little better, SERVPRO has prepared a ‘ready to use’ overnight bags for victims of house fires. They contain necessities such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, blankets, snacks and a soft teddy bear should a child need a friend to cuddle with. Band-Aids, burn cream, face wipes, shampoo, soap and hand-sanitizer are also provided to give those affected an opportunity to heal, relax and unwind.

The sales personnel at SERVPRO of East Mahoning County carry these bags in their vehicles in preparation for an emergency call. We pride ourselves on being on the scene as a first-responder and look to assist, provide comfort, and if necessary, begin the restoration process.

Tips on Fire Prevention in Mahoning County

woman holding her head with both hands and observing the damage as a result of a fire to her home Don’t let a preventable emergency become your next headache!

There are several types of fires that could occur in your home, and surprisingly, even more ways to prevent them from happening. Don’t let a preventable emergency become your next headache!

Here are some tips to preventing home fires:

Your home’s electrical connections could become potential fire hazards. In order to prevent a residential fire, periodically check the outlets in your home.

For best practices, inspect each connected item for proper functioning, as broken or warped electronics can pose fire hazards. This includes those iPhone chargers with frayed ends!

Additionally, be sure to maintain an appropriate number of connections to each electrical outlet or extension cord. Over-extending electrical outlets and cords are a main cause of residential fires.

Most homes also contain hidden fire hazards that you have probably never given a second thought. These threats may include heating pads, dryers, and even light fixtures.

To prevent unsuspecting fire hazards from causing a fire in your home, regularly review potentially hazardous items. Always clean the lint traps in the dryer, and avoid overheating by abstaining from falling asleep with heating pads. It is also important to unplug all cords when they are not in use.

We've all heard that preparation prevents poor performance. When it comes to fire prevention in your home this simple cliché holds true. Although you never really know when an emergency may occur, you can always be prepared!

Disaster can strike at any time and even if you aren’t prepared, SERVPRO of East Mahoning County is available day and night! Whether your home or business incurs damage from fire , water or storm, SERVPRO of East Mahoning County is here to help!

A Firefighter's Wife

A proud firefighter's wife

It’s early morning and I hear him walk through the door. He is still in his blue duty uniform and I look at his face with my sleepy eyes resulting from the restless sleep I've gotten. We hug and hear the little footsteps from our daughter’s sound from around the corner and my thankful and blessed day begins.

I am a firefighter’s wife…

Having a husband in the fire service is truly part of our family. They are family. The brotherhood and sisterhood is a bond that is very strong. They spend time away from their families to help families in need. A family who is experiencing a loss of a loved one, medical emergency, or damage from fire or water can be very overwhelming and can happen any time.

Emergencies do not have a scheduled time or day to occur. The fire department is on the frontline doing what they need to do to everyday. Whether they are hooking up a waterline or maintaining scene safety, they attack the situation as commanded and show compassion to others. They are focused.

I am a proud firefighter’s wife… 

The scene is safe, my husband is now rolling in the hose line back on the truck with the duty crew. A family is possibly left without a home to come back to. It needs to be restored and windows need boarded up to preserve security and structural stability. This is where my passion begins. I'm a part of the restoration process and needed during any size disaster.

I now work for SERVPRO, a full-service disaster restoration company and truly believe in the ¨after the disaster¨ restoration process. When my husband is ready to leave the scene and the job is done, SERVPRO is ready 24/7 to begin our process to help families in need. We too are family at SERVPRO and we serve others during their time of need!

Fire Damage in Youngstown, Ohio

Smoke Damage Cleanup Company in Youngstown, Ohio

9/26/2018 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot are very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of East Mahoning County will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Christmas Tree Fires in Youngstown, Ohio

12/4/2017 (Permalink)

Cause of Christmas Tree Fires

A common reason is due to electrical problems. There have been many instances where an extension cord has failed while under pressure of an object and caused a fire.

Prevent Christmas Tree Fires

With real trees there are many precautions and care that needs to be given. Watering the Christmas tree daily is necessary to prevent water level dropping below the cut end of the tree. Dry trees are the biggest culprit in these fires because they can burn faster than newspaper, causing the fire to spread rapidly.

Safety Tips

  • Making sure string lights have no loose connections
  • Use a single extension cord that is not longer than needed
  • Use UL- approved lights
  • Turn off lights before bed
  • Water the tree daily
  • Keep candles away from the tree.

When to Use a Fire Extinguisher

2/16/2017 (Permalink)

Fire extinguishers should be available in every building you are in, including your Youngstown home. Misconceptions about fire extinguishers are that they should and can be used on all types of fires in any situation. However, there are many types of fire extinguishers such as water, chemical, foam, etc. Each extinguisher is designed to put out different typed of fires. You should only try to put out a fire if it is contained, if you are safe from toxic smoke, you have a means of escaping that isn’t blocked by the fire. You should make sure the building if evacuated before extinguishing so the toxic air from smoke and the extinguisher does not harm anyone inside. If the fire is too much to handle, evacuate the building and call the fire department so they can handle it. If you experience fire damage, contact the professionals at your local SERVPRO at (330)536-7477 and follow us on Facebook for more information.

Valentine's Day Safety

2/13/2017 (Permalink)

 

Most Common Valentine's Day Fire Hazards to Avoid

  1. Leaving a candle unattended

It is imperative to have someone in the room where a candle is being used to prevent any fire damages.

  1. Placing them next to inflammable objects

Placing a candle in a safe atmosphere is important. Try to keep them on a flat surface away from any drapes or other inflammable objects.  

  1. Having an non-functioning fire alarm

A fire alarm should be functioning at all times throughout the year. Provide a service and inspection annually, to ensure your fire alarm is functioning properly.

  1. Dismissing candle holders

Some individuals feel a candle holder is unnecessary, but this could lead to a dangerous situation. The candle holder will protect the candle from falling and keeping wax from unwanted areas.

If a fire damage occurs in your Campbell home call SERVPRO at (330) 536-7477 to restore the structure back to, "Like it never even happened."

Soot Tags

2/6/2017 (Permalink)

Soot Tags

Soot Tags

Soot tags occur from a synthetic/petroleum based source burn.  During a fire smoke and soot circulate throughout the house and the heat moves toward cool air when trying to equalize the temperature. In the areas with less circulation the soot tags will begin to form and can look like soot on spider webs. However, soot tags are just chains of soot that gather in the areas with low circulation that look like webs. These can occur immediately or over time and reoccur even after dusting them off. Stay away from spraying water on the area to clean it because it will smear and stain. To help prevent this from happening service your furnace annually to ensure it is working properly to help deal with soot.  The best way to combat these soot tags are to contact your local SERVPRO in your Struthers area.

Contact us if you are dealing with soot at (330)536-7477 and follow us on Facebook to stay in touch.

Forest Fire

12/5/2016 (Permalink)

How forest fires are caused

A forest fire is an uncontrolled fire occurring in nature. Most forest fires are man made. A heat source combines with dry leaves and grass which release volatile gases and combines with oxygen in the air and starts the burn which creates more heat and gas and the fire spreads. The steeper the terrain the faster the fire burns because of the hot air rising into the other trees.

 

Affects of Wildfires

Forest fires cause damage to houses, offices, vegetation, and anything in its way. Cities have to spend millions on fighting them with aircraft, personnel, chemicals, and logistics. These fires wipe away almost all organic value of soil. However, most plants easily grow back and have good recovery. Some plants even thrive after a wildfire.

 

Wildfire Prevention

Public education (contact local fire departments)

Call fire department if there a fire hazards or activity

Learn how to use fire extinguisher

Burn safely and know the laws

Keep all fires manageable

Fire and smoke damage should not be taken lightly due to the dangers it may cause, action should be taken immediately to prevent further destruction. Smoke can spread throughout an entire structure under a couple of minutes. Although only a small portion of the structure has been visibly damaged it can still be dangerous to enter; an inspection should be considered to avoid the building from collapsing.

Essential Fire Safety Instructions

9/9/2016 (Permalink)

Most of us are informed of what actions to apply immediately during a fire, but it is important to enlighten children of what to do. When a fire occurs it is important to stay low at all times until you are out of the endangered premises. Staying low on the ground will keep you from inhaling too much smoke. Your first priority should be evacuating the structure immediately and making sure everyone else has an understanding of the main goal. Sometimes it is impossible to leave the endangered area, but it is essential to understand to never hide under a bed or in a closet. If you have a phone on hand you can call 911 and let them know you are trapped. If any apparel that you are wearing catches on fire, do not panic! Just immediately stop, drop, and roll on the ground with your hands covering your face.

Fire Safety Tips

9/7/2016 (Permalink)

There are several ways to prevent a fire just by eliminating hazards. Watch out for extension cords and multiple wires that are hidden behind carpets and curtains. Overloading Circuits is a common mistake especially for families who possess multiple electronics because they do not split the devices and run a different circuit.  

There should always be an operating fire extinguisher and smoke detectors installed in all homes. It is important to have a plan prepared for emergencies with people you live with. During a tragic incident it can be difficult to immediately take action and handle the situation. Having a plan prepared can prevent injuries and accelerating the process of leading everyone back to safety. Also focusing on bringing yourself back to safety is essential, which means leaving personal items behind. This situation can be hard, but it is imperative that you are not putting yourself in a dangerous situation.

If any damages occur after a fire, SERVPRO of East Mahoning County specializes in residential or commercial services, back to “Like it never even happened.”
