SERVPRO document restoration sign SERVPRO flood damage restoration services will handle all water damage property, even documents. Our IICRC certified team will work their magic.

Flood Damage Cleanup by SERVPRO Can Preserve Important Documents in a Chicago Home

Floods can have a heavy impact on a home on their own, and this effect is compounded for Chicago property owners who also run their businesses from home. Vulnerable equipment, assets, and documents require specialized care that homeowners might not be able to provide after a disaster.

With that in mind, SERVPRO flood damage technicians in Chicago can readily sanitize, dry, and repair structural materials and assets. These services aim to restore the affected property to a pre-disaster state so that occupants can resume business operations from their residence quickly and comfortably.

Floodwater Damage Document Drying Options

Mitigation services are available for salvageable documents. Many papers may not be restorable to the same condition they were in before a flood due to stains. However, SERVPRO document restoration can preserve and archive books and papers regardless of their purpose, whether they are for home business operations, personal records, or sentimental value.

Sublimation is one of the most effective document-drying methods because it prevents liquid from further warping the paper. These items are typically frozen while technicians decide on a mitigation strategy.

Document drying options include:

  • Vacuum thermal drying
  • Vacuum freeze-drying
  • Freezer drying

On-site air drying and dehumidification are also available depending on the extent of the damage, among other factors. SERVPRO technicians also keep digital logs of documents to remain accessible during the restoration of physical copies, even if the originals are not restorable to a clean, safe preloss state. Document replacement may be more viable than restoration, depending on the scenario.

Residents can call (312) 509-5000 for 24/7 cleanup from SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster regardless of when it occurs.
