When a Chicago School Requires Water Removal Services

SERVPRO Works Hard to Keep Chicago Area Schools Open after a Water Loss

Municipal Water Losses in the Chicago Area? SERVPRO Provides Cleanup and Recovery

When you are responsible for the upkeep of any of the Chicago area schools, you have to become prepared for whatever incident could occur. While many of the situations that you face can get rectified by the custodial staff that the institution employs, it is critical to understand when a situation is out of the wheelhouse and abilities of this limited staff. Water loss incidents can cause a great deal of damage initially, not to mention, continue to cause lingering effects to the facility if they do not get correctly restored.

One of the things that you need to keep in mind when determining your need for water removal services for your Chicago school is the severity of the situation. What you might not know, is that water damage can spread far from the source of the problem and into areas that you cannot readily see. The longer it takes to address the problem, the worse it continues to become. It is why our commitment to the clients we serve is the slogan used every day that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. We partner with many regional and local municipalities to grapple with water loss to structures.

One of the things that you have to consider about the facility itself is the students and families affected by a disaster like this if the school has to get canceled for the problem to get resolved. Our efforts might limit or eliminate the amount of time that this has to happen altogether, working around students and staff to continue restoration work while educational efforts continue.

Another factor that you might want to consider is the contents of the affected rooms. With many wooden shelving units and drywall used in the construction of your school, these materials are very susceptible to oversaturation and failure. Our SERVPRO technicians have the expertise to assess the stability of these materials and determine if they can get restored or if they require replacement.

Requiring water removal services for your school is something that no superintendent wants to have to experience, but unfortunately, this is something that you should have a plan in place to handle. Our SERVPRO of Marquette Park / West Lawn / Ford City team of experienced technicians can respond quickly and help to limit the time that your facility has to close its doors for restoration. Give us a call anytime at (773) 337-3993.
