"The technician that came to our home is one of the most caring, competent, professional and helpful people that I’ve ever met! He made this very difficult experience easy. He was always available, even at 10:30pm when I called him after the power went out. I had not left a message because it was so late. However, he saw the missed call and called me back. He was incredibly careful with our home and explained everything to us answering any and all of our questions...." TC and DC (Northern Chicago Suburb) Read more

Chicago Flood Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Flood damage restoration of your home or business is the number one property loss in terms of total cost in America today. Many people only think of serious flood damage as hurricane or in flood zone areas where a river overflows. Although these are obviously the most devastating they are not the most common. Here in the Midwest a broken sump pump, broken, leaky or frozen pipes and backed up sewer lines are the most common causes of home and business flooding. There are others such as broken water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines and sink and toilet overflows which are some of the more common culprits. In either case the situation really does require a good understanding and typically immediate flood restoration is necessary.

Types of Flood Damage Chicago

First there are three types (categories) of flooding.

  • Category One is clean water coming from a broken pipe, hot water heaters, etc.

  • Category Two flooding is slightly contaminated, such as ground water from sump pump failure and used water such as from a bath or washing machine. It is defined as mildly contaminated, containing elevated levels of bacteria not high enough to pose an immediate health risk to humans or pets. Category One flooding, if left standing, can turn to category two within two days.

  • Category Three flooding is severely contaminated water containing elevated levels of bacteria and/or pathogens that could or do pose an immediate health risk to humans and pets. Category Two flooding, if left standing will turn to category three within two or three days if not properly handled. Category three typically comes from sewage or water backing up from sewer lines, and would include water from lakes, rivers and ejector pits.

Our Technicians are professionally trained and certified in flood damage restoration and ready to be at your doorstep in the next 90 minutes for water damage repair. If you have water in your basement, sewage back up, sewage in your basement or crawl space, or frozen or broken pipe, you need to take FAST Action. And you need a water damage company that will provide fast high quality service. They will assess the extent of the damage to your property and provide you with an explanation of what needs to be done.

Our techs are fully equipped when they arrive to extract and decontaminate an area up to 50,000 square feet. They are very understanding of the inconvenience you are experiencing and are expert at handling the restoration process with urgency. You can expect our technicians to be kind, courteous, and skilled from start to finish.

The Process of Effective Chicago Water Damage Restoration

1. Water Extraction

This usually involves removing the standing water, and wet materials such as carpet padding, soaked insulation, and damaged sheetrock. If you have a sewage backup or sewer line break, that must also be handled to get rid of the harmful pathogens.

2. Structural Drying

Fast drying through the use of dehumidifiers and air movers is vital for water restoration. Generating super dry air through the use of dehumidifiers and directing that air with powerful air movers pulls the moisture out of structural materials, hastening their drying. The dehumidifiers also prevent secondary damage to areas that weren’t originally affected. High moisture levels in the air can cause peeling paint, warped building materials, and the growth of mold even in non-flooded areas. Drying wet structural materials and removing excessive moisture from the air is very important for limiting the damage.

3.Water Damage Repair

Once the structure has been tested by a specialist to ensure that it is completely dry, the materials damaged can be repaired to get things back to normal.

Basement Water Damage Cleanup in Chicago

Water in your basement is exceptionally common in the Chicago area, since most basements will sustain broken pipes, improper grading and window installation, failed sump pumps, seepage, or leaking foundation walls. It’s vital to contact a company that can take care of and is experienced in flooded basements or crawl spaces.

Basement flooding can be a very serious matter. If it's been more than 48 hours there will probably be mold growth, and wet drywall and carpets will often have to be replaced. So it’s imperative to have a professional who understands how to perform complete water cleanup and structural drying come and take care of the basement flood damage as soon as possible so that both the time and costs involved are lessened.
