Water Removal Services After Chicago Basement Flooding 

From millions of homes in Cook County to large campuses like the University of Chicago, standing water is a universal threat to structures. Saturation into high porosity materials can lead to the deterioration of structural elements and contents, making restoration more costly for those affected. Water removal services during flood restoration and after basement flooding events can be a critical first step to better protecting the property from these potentially debilitating conditions.

Cleaning and Water Damage Remediation for Chicago Properties

There are multiple tools and practices that are involved in the fundamental drying process. Basement flooding and burst pipes can allow for a considerable spread of moisture damage. Air movers and dehumidifiers sit at the base of this operation, allowing for efficient evaporation to make water damage "Like it never even happened."

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

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to 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.
