Water Damage What to Do When Your Chicago Home Sustains Water Damage Bathroom Leaks Can Lead to Major Water Damage in Chicago Homes--Contact SERVPRO for Cleanup, Drying, and Restoration

Call SERVPRO, of Course, for Swift Water Removal and Restoration

Coming home to water damage in your bathroom is a nightmare that most would not walk into willingly. Being away on a brief vacation and returning home to the piping under your bathroom sink leaking is just enough time for the problem to get out of hand. The water can pool and then slowly soaked into the floor and walls around it. Soon enough, the bathroom is in desperate need of professional services. Ignoring the problem would only allow the potential for mold growth or rot. Fortunately, professional help is not far.

Our IICRC-certified SERVPRO technicians can inspect your Chicago bathroom for water damage and then pick the appropriate method to tackle it. The longer that water sits in your home untouched, the more damage it can do. We appreciate your time is limited and strive to arrive at your home as soon as possible so that we may begin the restoration process swiftly.
 
What is essential in water damage restoration is establishing the best method to create a dry environment. SERVPRO technicians can achieve this through the use of advanced technology, such as dehumidifiers to take the moisture content out of the air. There are several types of dehumidifiers that we can pick from based on the unique circumstances that the water damage in your bathroom has created. Desiccant trailer mounted are for large loss jobs, smaller desiccants with silicone-based gel for the interior of homes, and LGR low grain refrigerant ones that condense out moisture like an a/c unit. We can also use tools like air movers and axial fans to keep air moving and taking moisture off of wet surfaces for the capture of the water vapor.
 
While it does not happen often, sometimes water damage can lead to the loss of belongings. Should you lose anything to the damage in your bathroom, such as towels or cosmetics, SERVPRO can help you take inventory of what you lost and then assist you with making a claim to your insurance company. For structural damage of non-salvageable materials, we can use our CCIS claims form to itemize losses.
