Debris Removal For Water Loss Incidents In Chicago Homes

Once you have got the flow of water stopped through burst pipes in your Chicago home, you get your first look at the widespread damages and effects from the incident. It can surprise many homeowners how far water loss effects can move from the source to affect materials and areas of their house far from this plumbing break. Contending with moisture and dampness can prove problematic without understanding where these problems persist, and on top of this need for proper drying in your residence, you also have to begin debris removal and controlled demolition to prepare the property for reconstruction efforts to come.

There are many steps involved in water cleanup for your Chicago residence, but this process typically begins with a full assessment of the damage to your property using our sophisticated moisture detection tools and leak detection devices to determine the location of the ruptured plumbing within the walls. Our thermal imagery can often prove vital to determine which areas of your house have become severely affected by pooling water and saturation, which can help to direct drying efforts and to educate our SERVPRO professionals on irreparably damaged areas of your house’s construction.

Controlled demolition is a vital component to preparing your property for the work that is necessary to return it to preloss condition. In many cases with substantial loss incidents, flood cuts, and removals of entire drywall panels must occur to prevent secondary effects like mold and microbial growth from taking root on hosting materials like sheetrock. Instead, our thermal imagery and infrared cameras can identify moisture content and saturation and determine which portions of the wall must get removed and later replaced to make this water loss incident “Like it never even happened.”

Responding quickly to a water loss emergency is vital to protecting your property as much as possible from the spread of devastating effects. You can count on our SERVPRO of West Loop / Bucktown / Greektown team to arrive quickly with the equipment and experience to help. Give our technicians a call anytime at (773) 434-9100.
