SERVPRO Provides Water Removal from Chicago Flooded Vehicles

Water Damage SERVPRO Provides Water Removal from Chicago Flooded Vehicles SERVPRO has experience mitigating flood damage to vehicles.

Flooded Vehicles Require Delicate and Thorough Water Removal

In the event of a flood, you may find your vehicles more heavily damaged than your home. The vehicle may be on the street, where water flow is the strongest, or could have other factors contributing to a more negative reaction to flooding than the home. In some cases, cars and trucks can trap water inside the cabin/ or other parts of the car, requiring a professional Chicago water removal service to clean up. SERVPRO has experience reversing the effects of flood damage from homes and vehicles alike and can dry out your vehicles with as little damage to them as possible.

What Makes Work in Vehicles Challenging?

Flooded vehicles can be some of the most challenging water removal jobs in Chicago. While homes afford us ample space and freedom of movement during our work efforts, vehicles have much tighter spaces to work in. They have little breathing room for our technicians and equipment, and we often must rely on more time-consuming hand-applied drying and water extraction methods. Furthermore, flood damage often critically impairs vehicles, making operations in some dangerous and difficult.

How Does SERVPRO Help?

Our technicians are trained and equipped to provide the delicate and thorough care needed by flooded vehicles. If a significant amount of water remains in the vehicle, we can use water extractors to pump liquid water out of interiors, trunks, truck beds, and engine compartments. We can then remove seats and objects from the car to accelerate the drying process and ensure that every component gets looked at carefully. If necessary, SERVPRO may call in a local expert contractor to assist with restorations to delicate components such as electronic dashboards and engine components. We make every effort to help the vehicle become roadworthy once more, or gain as much resale value as possible. 

SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville is a local provider of flexible and professional water removal solutions. If your home or vehicle has taken on excess water, call us at (312) 509-5000.
