How Water Removal Can Prevent Permanent Damages in Chicago Heights

In water restoration, we deal with both long-term issues that affect your property as well as shorter-term problems. A short term problem can be caused by an unforeseen event that results in large quantities of water pooling in your property. One example could be a leaking pipe or perhaps structural issues such as an attic or roofing leak that is exacerbated by heavy rainfall. Short term issues are time-sensitive, which is why quickly responding can help prevent permanent damages.

We run a local restoration service to help with water removal in Chicago Heights. The type of emergency you are experiencing is influential in our remediation procedure. There are two categories of water issues. The first is clean water emergencies, which are defined by large quantities of drinking or washing water entering the home. The second issue is more severe and involves a contaminated water supply, which may require removal and replacement of possessions or infrastructure.

Your SERVPRO technician can identify both types of water emergency and respond accordingly. In a clean water emergency, the majority, if not all, of items can be salvaged through proper drying of the affected area. Frequently, unpleasant odors dissipate once the property is dry. To gain this state, we can use pumping equipment as well as dehumidifiers and rapid air-movers.

Where the excess water is deemed to be contaminated, we must adopt a more rigorous approach, at times relying on replacement rather than restoration. Contaminated water--Black Water--could contain animal carcasses, pathogens, or raw sewage and represents a significant health risk. A SERVPRO technician must remove and dispose of porous materials like carpets, subfloor pads, and even sections of drywall to ensure your home is sanitary and safe. We may also need to quarantine the area and only enter with the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Time is the crucial factor in either type of water restoration. Since water bonds with particles it comes into contact with, a clean water spill can become increasingly severe if it is not dealt with swiftly. As a local service, we offer a twenty-four-hour emergency contact number when you need assistance.
