Find A Storm Damage Cleanup and Restoration Company You Trust


In our metropolitan area, there is evidence that heavier rains and an aging sewer infrastructure are combining for some very challenging flooding situations. No matter how diligently a homeowner tries to limit the damage done by periodic flooding, when torrential rains drop many inches of water in one storm you need the help only SERVPRO provides when your basement floods.

Urban areas struggle with flood damage, and Chicago is no exception. The aging wastewater disposal systems fill up, overwhelmed by the amount of precipitation falling in a given area. Since it is likely that flooding continues to happen but impossible to tell which neighborhoods risk flooding next, the smartest thing to do within a homeowner’s grasp is to choose a well-prepared flood restoration company.

SERVPRO stands out from the many recovery firm options in the area because of well-trained staff and the ability to ramp up the scale of restoration efforts. We have a commitment to local homeowners and our shared community. Because we also live and work here, we understand the struggles you confront when our weather does not cooperate. Although we have a local focus, we are part of a larger, nationwide network of flooding and water damage restoration experts.

Should your neighborhood be one that suffers from heavy rains and compromised waste water disposal this summer, make sure you have SERVPRO on speed dial. We respond quickly when flooding threatens to damage your basement and its contents. Our staff uses submersible pumps and extractors to remove standing water, the equipment mounted on our service trucks. We evaluate the viability of any HVAC system, water heaters, and laundry appliances after we clear the water. Our staff uses industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers to dry flooring, walls, and other structures.

Furnishings and bedding saturated with flood waters need assessment for the safety of restoration rather than disposal. Flood waters contain the potential for infectious waste, and disinfecting porous articles like upholstery and mattresses is not always possible. We discuss this with you and your insurance company, making the best choice based upon your safety and welfare.

Flooding in your community needs the expert help of SERVPRO of Evergreen Park / South Chicago City. Gear up your response by calling our team at (773) 337-3900.
