The hard-working crews from SERVPRO of Evergreen Park / South Chicago City are still working hard to help restore commercial properties in South Florida from Hurricane Irma. The flooding in this particular property was deep, and it remained flooded for several days, so all of the drywall needed to be removed. The commercial building is still in the demolition stage and drying has not yet begun. Soon, the damage will be "Like it never even happened."

Chicago Mold Remediation

Chicago Mold Remediation

The speckled ceiling is the staining caused by a mold infestation. A leak in this Chicago apartment provided the necessary moisture for the mold spores to develop into large mold colonies. The leak was repaired, and the fungus was scraped from the walls and ceiling area with a HEPA filtered hand vac to capture the debris. The affected area was sprayed with an antimicrobial product and then checked several times to make sure the mold had been eradicated.
