Power Outage Refrigerator Odor Cleanup in Canfield Ohio

10/2/2018 (Permalink)

Was There a Power Outage? 

Power outages are common during a storm, which means the electricity to a freezer and refrigerator is most likely temporarily powered down and not keeping the food cold. It can be difficult to determine whether a power outage occurred if you were not present during the storm.

How to Determine 

One away to determine whether the food in your freezer needs thrown out is by using a quarter.

Freeze a cup of water before evacuating your home and put a quarter on top of the frozen water.

If the quarter is sunk to the bottom of the cup a-fter the storm, you should dispose all food stored in the freezer.

The quarter sinking to the bottom means the food in the freezer has defrosted and it should be thrown out. This is a great method to determine if your food went bad.

If you return to spoiled food, call SERVPRO of West Mahoning County for cleanup and deodorization services 330-609-8543. We have the resources, training and equipment to identify and eliminate foul freezer and refrigerator odors from spoiled food.

Hurricane Florence has brought heavy rains and flooding to states in the southeast.

This season, we have experienced heavy rainfalls in our local communities, with flash flooding causing a lot of damage throughout Mahoning County.

We encourage you to prepare now as we continue through this hurricane season. Here are some suggestions on ways you can stay prepared in the event of excessive rains:

  1. Gather supplies in cause you need to leave immediately or if utilities are shut off due to storms
  2. Review your insurance policy and be sure to make sure you are covered (for an appropriate amount relative to your home or business) in the event you have a drain backup or sump pump malfunction
  3. Keep important documents in a waterproof container
  4. Check drains and gutters and install check valves - test the battery on your sump pump to make sure it is working at the first signs of rain
  5. Keep storage items in plastic rather than cardboard boxes

At the first sign of water damage, call SERVPRO of West Mahoning County for immediate emergency cleanup response 330-609-8543.

Flooded Basement Cleanup in Austintown Ohio

There are a number of reasons why your Austintown basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe 
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
