Water Damage – Chicago Home

Water damage at this Chicago home saturated the carpeting and padding. There was a concern for the sub-flooring, and it was tested with hi-tech moisture detection meters that showed that the sub-flooring had absorbed too much moisture. The carpeting and padding had to be replaced and then commercial air movers and dehumidifiers would be positioned to thoroughly dry the sub-flooring.

Mold damaged insulation stacked on the floor

Mold Damage – Chicago Home

Mold damage struck this Chicago home when moisture entered through the roof of the home and settled in the attic insulation. The combination of moisture and darkness is a perfect recipe for mold growth. The insulation would need to be replaced after thoroughly cleaning and drying of the attic.

Remediation of Mold in Ford City

The mold infested room of this older home in Ford City has been isolated from the remainder of the non-mold infested rooms of the structure. This prevented mold spores, dust, and a general mess from migrating and infesting new areas. The demolished and discarded building elements expose surfaces for the antimicrobial spray by our SERVPRO AMRT crew.

A thank you letter to SERVPRO from a fire damage customer

Another Happy Customer

Our SERVPRO of Marquette Park / West Lawn / Ford City team is proud to help our customers recover from unfortunate fire losses. Needless to say we were very happy to receive a thank you note from a customer we worked with over a year ago. It was the morning of Valentines Day 2016 when we received a call from the insurance agent alerting us to the residential fire. Later that morning we sat at the family dining room table to discuss the challenges that lie ahead. The smell of fire was still on their clothes and in the air.  We always try to treat our customers like family. That morning, we became family.  Fire damage to a family home or business can be a very stressful event.  For more information on fire damage restoration in the Chicago and Ford City area, call us for professional service.

Mold and Moisture Go Hand-in-Hand in Chicago

The mold in this frame home developed from an exterior seepage of water through the siding. The dormant mold spores sprung to life and emitted that foul, musty odor. We cut out and discarded some of the drywall panels, and then began the antifungal work.
