Flood Damage Restoration Options

Flood damage can be disastrous to your home because it can not only destroy your property but also has several health effects due to the molds. Treating flooding in your Chicago home as an emergency is critical.

In Chicago, flood damage events occur more often, and you need certified experts to help you restore your home. One of the most critical tools that our technicians at SERVPRO use to help dry your entire house is the air movers. They need to be placed in a clockwise pattern with the inlet towards the wall and ensure the snout is touching the wall. Our technicians can easily monitor the equipment and move air movers to the left and right in a circular pattern to ensure an evenly dry structure.

In hard-to-dry areas such as the walls, ventilation is critical, and the SERVPRO team ensures that these areas are thoroughly checked and dried without any damage whatsoever. The baseboards need to be removed and vent holes drilled between each stud in the wall at the baseboard level. The process can be challenging, and inexperienced technicians can damage your wall leading to additional expenses.

The amount of time required to ensure your home is thoroughly dry depends on air movement, humidity, temperature, and amount of water to be evaporated. For successful drying, all these factors need to be controlled using different techniques and equipment, such as the dehumidifier for lowering relative humidity and truck mounts for water extraction. SERVPRO technicians have years of experience and the advantage of extensive training on how to effectively use the various equipment at their disposal. Our technicians can also create a drying goal to ensure that we get your home back to its earlier condition as soon as possible.
