SERVPRO Says that Water Affects a Chicago Structure and Contents in Varying Degrees

The most common claims on home insurance are related to water damage. There are several possible causes of water damage, and bathtub overflow accidents are amongst some of the most common. Several problems can come from your bathtub overflowing in your Chicago home, including the growth of bacteria, leaking ceilings under the tub, ruined flooring, wet plasterboard, and weak and unsafe subflooring.

Why is it essential to remove stagnant water without delay?

It is easy to understand why quickly taking care of this type of water damage is essential. Your Chicago home can suffer from various damages, many of which can significantly affect the strength of the structure. It is precisely why SERVPRO is always standing by with professional and knowledgeable crews to help you in your time of need. Our staff has all been properly trained, and we have the right equipment needed to do the job correctly.

Once we have removed all the standing water from your home, we need to clean any areas which were affected. Structural items, like subfloors and walls, might need cleaning. We clean restorable materials with the right cleaning method for each type of material. We always use professional products and ensure that your home looks as good, if not better, than before the water damage.

If the overflow leaked through the floor to another room downstairs, SERVPRO techs might need to clean things such as carpeting. Any of these areas not only get cleaned but deodorized as well. Our carpet cleaning methods can be grouped into how effective they are at different levels of soiling.

What do we do to grapple with the effects of high moisture?

Any contents of your home, which have been exposed to high humidity, are evaluated for cleaning needs.

  • Some wood furniture could require cleaning and polishing
  • We also check any clothing, or storage areas in the water damaged sections of the home for deodorizing
  • We check photographs and wall hangings as well,
  • Electronics could need unique drying and cleaning services to restore them
