The Industrial Equipment SERVPRO Uses To Obliterate Residential Water Damage In Chicago

Water Damage The Industrial Equipment SERVPRO Uses To Obliterate Residential Water Damage In Chicago There's a reason why SERVPRO brings its heaviest equipment to these jobs: they require the fast, firm capabilities of industrial machinery.

Equipment Used In The Water Damage Restoration Process


Removing all traces of water after a flood is a nightmare for most homeowners. Water soaks into everything in a home, from tile grout to wood paneling, creating an impossible scenario for people armed only with household cleaning products. There's a reason why SERVPRO brings its heaviest equipment to these jobs: they require the fast, firm capabilities of industrial machinery. Otherwise, water may remain on surfaces, in materials, and suspended in the air until proper cleanup can be done or the structure sustains severe damage. These are examples of a few super-heavy machines we use to remove water after a flood.

Extractors
Extractors are the first key to Chicago water removal projects. These heavy pumps are what most people think of when they think 'industrial water removal' - they remove high volumes of water from the structure in as little time as possible. Getting these machines in help to prevent water from seeping deeper into the foundation and stop mold from growing.

Clothes Dryers
We have access to an array of super-heavy-duty clothing washers and dryers to get any clothing or smaller fabrics clean as soon as possible. An often overlooked part of the water removal process, clothing can be permanently destroyed if it is not cleaned quickly. With our machines, anything that doesn't require a dry clean typically gets cleaned within hours.

Air Movers
Along with extractors, these machines are the second key to removing water from the structure. SERVPRO trains every technician extensively in the proper setup and arrangement of air movers, so be careful not to move them from their original spots! These machines create powerful, directed air currents to whisk away moisture from surfaces and porous materials.

Moisture Detectors
Sometimes the little things count the most. Before, during, and after the main set of water removal tasks are completed, our inspectors carefully examine your home with high-tech moisture detectors to find the last vestiges of water and mold in your home. As a result, we can easily peer behind walls and under floors to find the fullest extent of water damage in the home.

We at SERVPRO of West Loop / Bucktown / Greektown bring our heaviest gear to every water removal job to make sure it is completed right, the first time. Call us 24/7 at (773) 434-9100.
