Water Damage can Happen After a Fire in Your Chicago Residence

Our priority at SERVPRO of Marquette Park / West Lawn / Ford City is to take care of your home like it is our own.

SERVPRO Offers Water & Fire Restoration Services to Chicago Homes

Both homeowners and those who rent their residence in Chicago can experience damage to their belongings. Furniture, beddings, clothing, books, and other items can become ruined, or nearly so, through no fault of your own. Repairing items, cleaning them, or performing restorative work can help restore many items, helping keep replacement costs low and manageable, while also helping to preserve unreplaceable keepsakes.

Residents in Chicago might experience water damage after a small fire. Putting any size fire out with water can lead to damaged areas of your home. Because many people feel relieved after the goes out, they forget to take care of the water, leading to problems later. SERVPRO understands that your initial efforts to save your home and its contents when the fire broke out can backfire all too easily, but we can help solve the situation.

When water stays in place, damage ends up slowly accruing. Stains, bubbled paint, loosened carpet, and padding, and many other problems can result. Even when firefighters put out a massive fire, removing the water becomes an additional responsibility of the homeowner. Renters might find themselves at the landlord's mercy regarding their belongings, but we also work with these individuals and their families. Water damage can include visible staining and microbial growth in clothing, leather goods, and footwear. Odors can also become a nuisance. Special laundering and cleaning can eliminate many of these situations and save your belongings.

Artwork and wall hangings can harbor moisture from the water you used to put out a fire between their backs and the wall, leading to mold colonies and other microbes growing wildly out of control. Bleed-through and other stains can also become unsightly and ruin your investments.

Drying out your dwelling can stop water damage and allow us the drier environment needed to begin preserving your belongings and undoing any current damage. Air movers, heaters, and desiccant machines help us reach our goals of a dry residence, and keep humidity and moisture from continuing to infiltrate your home's environment.
