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. 

Thorough Drying for Ceiling Leaks in Chicago Properties

Leaking fixtures inside of structural cavities can become a persistent and damaging threat to your home. Our general contractor license can allow us to complete multiple services such as plumbing repair and structural build back to overcome the destructive forces of water and moisture on your home.

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.

1.  Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent 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.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
