Water Removal Services After Burst Pipes in Chicago

Among the first steps that our professionals can take when responding to water damage events occurring in Chicago homes and businesses is removing standing water from the floors. Any pooling of water can ultimately allow for oversaturation and migration of moisture into less accessible areas of the property. The more complicated that moisture and dampness become to address and dry, the more prolonged restoration takes and ultimately costs. We can utilize submersible pumps for significant volumes of standing water and wet vacuums for smaller amounts.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
