Who Meets or Exceeds the Substantial Water Removal Needs of Chicago Downtown Businesses?
SERVPRO’s scalable workforce and centralized equipment staging area supports any size Downtown Chicago rollout of emergency services for water damage remediation
Post-disaster water removal in Chicago’s Downtown has coped with the challenges of commercial skyscrapers since the 1880s. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the city experienced a building boom with multi-level residential and business structures trending. When a building stretches dozens of stories into the air, the consequences of burst pipes, ceiling leaks, and other water damage are profound, requiring specialized training and state-of-the-art equipment for a robust response.
How Can SERVPRO Overcome Power Outages and the Building Density of Downtown Chicago?
Our signature fleet of green service vehicles stocks multiple truck-mounted extractors and submersible pumps in each unit. Powered by onboard generators or gas, the extractors and pumps, when appropriately positioned, can remove thousands of gallons of water even if on-site electricity is unavailable. With tanks that hold more than 100,000 gallons, SERVPRO equipment supports our managers and technicians in evacuating liquid water quickly and disposing of it per city regulation.
What Strategies Does SERVPRO Use for Water Clean Up in Confined Areas?
The soaring commercial properties we serve as an Official Licensed Downtown Chicago Operator also benefit from our vast inventory of portable, backpack water extractors. SERVPRO quickly assembles a legion of Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified technicians to operate these more compact tools, ensuring every square inch (if possible) of a Chicago Loop property is dried out fast after a water damage crisis.
