You Can Rely on Restoration Experts from SERVPRO to Perform Water Removal in Your Chicago Home 

Whether a faulty appliance or burst pipe causes it, a water loss incident takes a relatively brief time to ruin building materials and valuable items in a home. After a water emergency in your Chicago home, you need to act fast to stop further leaks and save property. You should also seek professional help from SERVPRO technicians who can protect as many valuables as possible and dry the affected areas fast to prevent mold growth. 

Why should I involve professionals?

Professionals can promptly reduce the harmful effects of a water loss incident since we have access to advanced water removal equipment, and we use groundbreaking techniques. We have a team of experienced and certified technicians who can perform water removal in your Chicago property to prevent costly damages. We use an approved process that protects the property owner against germs, mold, and odors. We not only extract water but also clean and deodorize the property safely and efficiently.

What can I do to help with the water removal process?

Depending on the level of water present, you can start extracting the water before our response team gets to your property. The steps to take include:

  • Find the source of the water intrusion and stop it. 
  • Wear personal protective gear like gloves and rubber boots before entering the water-damaged area.
  •  Remove any furniture or belongings from the affected area.
  •  Remove debris
  •  Extract as much water as you can by using a wet-dry vacuum. 

If the water levels are high for your water extraction equipment to handle, wait for the SERVPRO team of technicians to arrive. If the water is two inches deep or deeper, our team can use an electric submersible pump to remove it. If your carpet has absorbed water, we can use a carpet wand to extract it. For hard surface flooring, our technicians can use a squeegee wand. 

How do you dry a property?

The drying process is an essential step in restoration. Our team of professionals can use specialized equipment such as centrifugal air movers and refrigerant dehumidifiers to dry the affected area.

How can you remove the foul odor?

Water can cause a bad odor in your home, and it can persist even after effective drying. We can use air filtration devices with multiple filters to eliminate the odor. The devices have multiple high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters that remove airborne particles from the air by trapping them. They also capture gases and odors and then exhaust clean air back to the environment.
