Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Chicago, IL

Many of the problems homes and businesses in Chicago experience come from intrusive, unwanted water. Broken water lines and malfunctioning appliances cause havoc and the water immediately begins to change the interior of any building. Removing the water and any damaged materials, followed by thorough cleaning, gets mitigation underway. Our Green Fleet always makes it easy for us to bring the right equipment and in sufficient numbers.
Our proximity to Lake Michigan can also cause flooding to occur. While the Lake itself might not cause problems for Chicago properties, the wind and weather patterns often do. We are also prepared to get things cleaned up and spotless for you, no matter how much damage your property sustains.

Secondary water damage from any Category water can happen quickly, and our staff holds the necessary certificates from the IICRC to both prevent damage of this type, as well as mitigate or remediate damage that does occur. Our completion of each job in a successful manner keeps our community safe and adds to the trust we gain.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
