Our Water Damage Restoration Process Will Restore Your Home In Chicago
How To Carry Out Effective Water Cleanup For Chicago Homeowners
Getting water off your floors and out of your carpets is a long and arduous task. Armed with just a mop and bucket these types of the job require much spare time and more than a little effort. However, sometimes water can spread faster than you can remove it; especially if the source of water comes from a warped or split pipe. In these instances, it's always useful to have a professional service on hand.
When we refer to water cleanup in Chicago properties, we are not talking about restoration or removal of standing water. Water cleanup involves removing all traces of moisture from a specific area and then dehumidifying the affected area to guard against potential damages like mold and mildew growth.
We start by bringing in SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians to assess the scope of damage caused by water. It may be necessary to temporarily remove carpets to dry both sides and check your subfloor for saturation. When carpets are removed, we can also take the opportunity to treat them with anti-microbial chemicals to ensure a long-lasting clean.
For excess water in residential properties, we usually opt for portable extraction units. These nimble pieces of equipment allow us to dry in between floorboards and into cracks using air, vacuum power, and heating elements. Sometimes, we might place rapid air movers to evaporate moisture and dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the surrounding atmosphere.
As part of our cleanup, SERVPRO can thoroughly deodorize the area using chemical based foggers that neutralize odor particles. We can also employ moisture meters to ascertain saturation levels and ensure the affected area has a similar humidity to other areas of the home. At the end of service, we can conduct a guided tour with you to show you all aspects of work done and any areas you may need to watch.
If a spill goes beyond what you can clean up, contact SERVPRO of Marquette Park / West Lawn / Ford City at (773) 337-3993 for expert service.
