SERVPRO - Remediating Commercial Water Damage In Chicago Food Service Facilities


Chicago businesses face a variety of disasters, most of them having to do with failing appliances that can start a fire or send gallons of water across the floors, walls, and equipment. When it happens in a food service operation, the need to clean and dry everything can have a much shorter time limit not just to serve customers, but to keep food from spoiling.


For SERVPRO to remove and remediate commercial water damage in a Chicago butcher shop, we have to dry not just the floor, but the equipment, counters, and even the inside atmosphere of the shop. Since this is a food service facility, our cleaning specialists use an anti-bacterial cleaner on every surface where food is stored or prepared on before sale.

If the damage results from a broken inlet pipe or a broken sink, then our efforts center primarily around cleaning and drying the floor so that it is safe for employees and customers. Our cleaning crews remove any standing water with commercial pumps and extraction wands. Once there is only a trace of water spread over the surface, crew members use an anti-bacterial cleaner to eliminate any possible threat of mold growth and then air movers and fans to dry the floor.

When the damage starts with a faulty sprinkler system, then the water is over every surface, to include freezers, preparation areas, customer service counters, and more. SERVPRO specialists remove any excess water from on top of display cases, chopping blocks, and every other surface that might conceivably touch the product before it goes to a customer. Next, they scrub each surface with an anti-bacterial agent that is safe for them. Crew members then wash and dry everything to ensure no residual chemical cleaner is left behind.

Our goal at SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville is to clean and restore each surface and piece of equipment to its original condition before the water damage. Quickly performing this task allows food service business owners to retain as much of their inventory as possible and not lose thousands of dollars in lost product. If you need us, call (312) 509-5000 today. We are here for you.
