Hard Wind Can Lead To Flood Damage In Your Chicago House

Everyone can recognize Chicago and its surrounding areas as a persistently windy location to live and work. Most of the residents here have grown accustomed to this steady presence, but when severe weather systems pass through the area, the steady breeze can turn into gale-force threats capable of doing substantial damage. From tearing off roof shingles and siding from your home to breaking windows and even doors with hurdling debris, a strong storm system can leave your house exposed to potential flood effects.

Many of the homes constructed in this area have gotten reinforced to reduce potential flood damage to Chicago residences, but even these precautionary measures can be insufficient in the right conditions. When storm damages occur, you can count on the fast response of our SERVPRO professionals. With our central location, we can reach the entirety of Chicago and its suburbs in a short time, reducing the potential widespread effects of flooding as it occurs.

With many larger homes throughout Evergreen Park and other boroughs that we service, we have a Large Loss Recovery Team we can rely on when situations exceed the limitations of our specific team. We can join forces with other local branches serving the area for a significant roster of certified personnel, a nearly endless inventory of recovery tools and drying units, and a fleet of service vehicles capable of handling many restoration projects simultaneously as is often the case with severe weather.

With the damage that wind can do to the property, homeowners can also depend on our SERVPRO general contractors that can offer emergency construction solutions like board ups and tarping to eliminate further penetration of floodwater while mitigation continues.

We know how devastating floods can be for area homes, and we respond quickly to these storm emergencies with the full measure of our personnel and advanced recovery equipment. Our SERVPRO of Evergreen Park / South Chicago City rapid response team is available anytime by calling (773) 337-3900. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
