SERVPRO in Chicago Operates Twenty-Four-Hours-a-Day to Help Chicago with Flood Removal

The volume of water that can enter a property due to flooding can make the restoration task seem overwhelming for most homeowners. Large quantities of water in a property can affect the structural integrity, particularly at wall joints or floor level. Water exerts a high pound-for-pound pressure while it can also be toxic if inhabitants or materials are exposed in the case of flooding. Our services use industrial-grade pumping equipment to help reduce standing water levels in your home, secure the property's structural integrity, and allow for more specific restoration work to begin. SERVPRO typically uses:

  • Pumping equipment for flooding
  • Truck-mounted water extraction equipment
  • Fast-drying equipment for residential properties

The task of flood removal in Chicago can be a long job, but the initial phases are surprisingly quick thanks to the industrial equipment we use. Water pumps typically consist of a long ducting tube for transporting water to an open sewer point, submersible technology to allow them to be used at high standing water levels, and are often electrically powered. In some cases, where electrical supply lines are temporarily out of action, SERVPRO technicians can use gas-powered pumping equipment to ensure your property is drained quickly. 

  • Some valve submersible pumps can pass solid wastes, which can help remove silt or debris and water. 
  • A water pump is many times more effective than extraction equipment or ventilation equipment. 
  • Our team can safely dispose of the wastewater by using a nearby sewer point or transporting it to a wastewater facility on a water truck. 

To quickly reduce the impact of flooding in your home, contact SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville for flood removal at (312) 509-5000.
