Removing water from your property may seem effortless. However, when your Chicago workplace is affected, the situation can quickly degenerate into a full-blown crisis if you falter at any of the critical stages of the process. Surprisingly most of the hitches you might run into tie back to your understanding of water removal processes.

Water removal from your Downtown Chicago premises is crucial to curtailing its adverse effects on materials and the people using the facility. After water intrusion, your property develops hazards such as slick floors or unstable fixtures or ceilings. Furniture and structural areas such as walls also deteriorate from the high moisture levels. SERVPRO, an official DCLO - Downtown Chicago Licenced Operator can help you tackle the tedious work involved, restoring preloss conditions.

Things to remove after water intrusion

  • Stagnating water
  • Absorbed water
  • Soggy materials and bubbling or flaking paint
  • Soils 

Stagnant water is usually the apparent issue if there is a leak, making it the likely focal point of your restoration effort. However, remember other matters, including the hidden moisture absorbed into items or structural areas. Deteriorating materials also need to go because moisture loosens paint from surfaces, causes some insulation to matt, and causes drywall to crumble. SERVPRO IICRC-certified teams are well-prepared to perform controlled demolition to remove the declining materials as we remove the water.

Cleaning During the Water Removal

Your workplace may require a thorough general cleanup to address the soils and odors that develop after water leaks. Soils can include dust swept from structural areas, resins, and dyes from furniture items. The water might also affect stock items or any chemicals stored within your premises, creating varying amounts of soils. In addition, microbial growth is typical in a wet building, creating soiling and musty odors.

Necessary actions during cleaning

  • Applying biocides 
  • Sufficient agitation
  • Drying and deodorization
