Reliable Flood Damage Restoration Services For Chicago Residents
Removing Water and Drying Structures After Flooding
Although Chicago as a city has put in place several measures to curb flood damage, it is hard to know what to expect when the heavy rains come around. Being the Windy City--The Hawk, a tree in your compound can be blown away and in the process expose your property to rainstorms. If that property is your house, then flooding is more than expected.
Residents of Chicago have choices to make at the end of a flood damage incident. The most recommended choice is letting a service provider like SERVPRO to restore the affected property. Remember at this point we are talking about your property that is soaked with flood water and needs the right air moving equipment to enhance evaporation and quicken the drying time. Below, we highlight some of the air moving tools that our certified professionals use to restore your property.
Restorers use clamps that come with some air movers to hold your carpets into position so that air can be blown under them. They also have a special feature which makes it possible for the experts to attach snouts at their end. By doing that, dry air reaches the wall cavities which are normally located under the cabinets. The air forced by these devices is high velocity so that the rate of evaporation is increased.
SERVPRO technicians can also use ventilating or drying systems to direct air into wall cavities. The working of these systems is similar to that of air movers, and it is typical to see tiny holes drilled in the walls or beneath your cabinets to blow air into them. Larger volumes of air are also moved by the use of venting fans or axial fans.
When your property is dry and its moisture levels have been checked for the last time, SERVPRO experts choose the most appropriate cleaning method based on the restored material. If we are talking about a soiled carpet, then the soil level determines the cleaning process. All in all, homeowners are encouraged to seek professional restoration services as opposed to working on their own.
