Children are known to get up to some mayhem, but it is never a good thing when that mischief puts your home in need of urgent water cleanup services. When your child's curiosity leads them to stuff the drain of your bathroom sink, the resulting mess can be overwhelming. While you were doing some house chores, they left the tap running and flooded your bathroom. By the time you find the mess, it is entirely possible that it is too much water to clean up on your own. Additionally, you may rightfully worry about the dangers of the water soaking into the floor and walls.
 
However, you can take comfort knowing that there are professionals close to your home that can provide water cleanup services in Chicago to you. As soon as you find the water in your house, it is essential to get on the phone and call for help. It is for the better that the water is addressed quickly. Leaving it for too long can result in further damages to your home, such as mold damage in the walls or cracks in your tile from the structure underneath becoming damaged.
 
SERVPRO always strives to travel to your home as swiftly as possible. We understand the importance that time takes in remediation and thus always try to beat it. Once we arrive at your home, SERVPRO can immediately begin to use advanced technology to clean up the water in your bathroom.
 
SERVPRO uses tools such as wet/dry vacuums and extractors to cleanup pooled and stagnant water. Once the water is gone, we can use moisture meters to detect if your bathroom needs further drying. Leaving it without checking could allow the development of mold in your bathroom. Should the space need further remediation, we can use tools such as ventilation box fans and air movers to reduce moisture. Lastly, we can recommend to you a plumber to unclog the sink your child stuffed up, so this problem will not happen again.
