Drying and Demolition Cleaning for Chicago Apartments

Water loss incidents can originate from many sources in Chicago apartments, and getting ahead of the spreading damage can help you to reduce the total losses you experience. As you might expect, water effects can migrate quickly through a property from the source outward, so within a short period, a broad area of your living space has become affected by this spreading threat. Drying up the damage is, unfortunately, only part of the equation, however.

While drying and even extraction are vital elements to the recovery of your apartment, water cleanup in Chicago properties plays an equally important role. In many situations involving category 2 or above water losses, the likelihood of controlled demolition and necessary reconstruction is high. Not only can intricate material removal eliminate overly damaged construction materials and contents, but it can make otherwise inaccessible areas of the building available for focused drying and cleanup.

Wet-vacuuming can remove pooling water damage from the flooring of your apartment. With the inclusion of wands and carpet extraction pads, we can more successfully remove moisture from flooring materials. With exposed elements like wood trim and drywall, however, there is little that can be done to protect these items if the exposure has persisted for longer than 24 hours. The only suitable solution to both reduce potential microbial growth and to most efficiently return the property to preloss condition is through controlled demolition and later reconstruction.

We have a full team of general contractors that can help both the demolition and the build back of damaged areas of your apartment. A prompt start to these definitive steps can reduce the possibility of damaging neighboring units through shared walls or the floors. Our SERVPRO contractors have more than 30 years of combined experience, ensuring that we can only remove what is necessary to maximize drying and recovery efforts.

Water loss incidents in an apartment can threaten much more than just your unit. You can count on the fast response and expertise of our SERVPRO of West Loop / Bucktown / Greektown team to limit the migration of these effects and provide practical strategies to make water losses “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at (773) 434-9100.
