SUB PUMP WITH HOSE When Downtown Chicago flooding surprises you, call SERVPRO--We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO’S Restoration Team can Relieve Storm Damage Stress

There is evidence that heavier rains and aging sewer infrastructure are combining for some very challenging flooding situations in our metropolitan area. 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 Downtown 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 it is 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.

SERVPRO Helps with Summer Flood Damage in Downtown Chicago

Should your neighborhood be one that suffers from heavy rains and compromised wastewater 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 floodwaters need assessment for the safety of restoration rather than disposal. Floodwaters 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.
