Stark County Water Damage

Not many folks today are old enough to remember the statewide flood during Easter of 1913. Stark County was particularly hard-hit. According to historian Todd Clark as quoted by the Silver Jackets, “Railroads along the Tuscarawas River were submerged, with engines and cars toppled from their washed out tracks. In Canal Fulton, surging water wrenched the iron bridge crossing the Tuscarawas River at Cherry Street from its foundation. And in Navarre, streetcars sat stranded amidst the flooded city streets. To the north, the City of Akron dynamited a series of canal locks to save the downtown from flooding...In nearby Massillon, floodwaters breached the banks of the Tuscarawas River and overwhelmed the Ohio & Erie Canal, inundating the downtown and causing substantial flooding for miles around.” As a result of the statewide disaster, many flood prevention and water management policies were enacted to help protect lives, homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure.

Despite the addition of zoning laws, flood-plain management, and engineered storm water systems, flooding is still a threat throughout Ohio. And unfortunately, water damage is not limited to flooding from rainfall or severe weather. In fact, normal water damages caused by a leaking toilet, broken pipe, or sewer backup, for example, can cause serious damage and are much more common. Soaked carpet, saturated furniture, and water-logged books and important papers are only some of the ways to suffer loss from water damage. What about the damage to drywall, structural timber, and insulation?

If your home or business has been flooded or has sustained water damage, whether from a natural disaster like the 1913 flood or from artificial causes, the Allen Keith Construction Company is here to help. Our water-damage restoration services include water extraction, drying and deodorizing surfaces and structural elements, and the restoration of electronics, personal possessions, and important articles.

We use the latest technology and equipment to ensure that your home and possessions are completely dry to lessen the chance for later mold growth.
