Standing water and bags of sand in front of a home. SERVPRO has your home covered when it comes to storm damage.

Flood Damage Addressed by Our Professionals at SERVPRO Ensures Your Chicago Home is Fully Restored

After flood water recedes, it is reasonable to want to get back to your routine as quickly as possible. To make sure your interior is safe and that mold does not set in, calling in the help of trained water restoration technicians (WRT) is the best bet. With one phone call, we deploy a crew of our IICRC-certified SERVPRO technicians to get started in as little as four hours.

What Happens When You Arrive?

We provide you with a full inspection and assessment of your flood damage in Chicago so that we can put the best plan into action. It is important to act carefully and quickly when flood water is involved as it poses a potential threat to your health as well as structural damage if it sits for too long.

Flood water is known to contain a variety of contaminated elements, including:

  •   Bio-hazards
  •   Chemicals
  •   Fecal Waste
  •   Fuel, and more

We show up on site with all of the necessary equipment to remove water from your home, including truck-mounted extraction tools that allow us to pull up water rapidly along with any debris in the water. Our team always wears the appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE), which includes foot coverings to ensure unaffected zones within your house remain protected. 

Following water removal, we then use moisture detection tools like thermal imaging cameras and moisture sensors to locate any hidden pockets where water may have migrated. Depending on the condition of your interior, we may be able to perform flood cuts to remove damaged drywall. However, carpeting saturated in contaminated flood water is almost always removed and replaced.

We know how important it is to restore your home to preloss condition, which is why it is best to call us at SERVPRO of Marquette Park/West Lawn/Ford City. You can reach us at (773) 337-3993 to deploy a team for flood damage assessment.
