SERVPRO Professionals Render Flood Water Removal Services in Chicago

Even small amounts of ground flooding seeping into a property’s kitchen can have wide-reaching effects on everything from drywall and wall cavities to cabinets, flooring, and subfloors. The potential for mold, which can cause health effects, and other contaminants to permeate possessions can make DIY cleanup solutions inadvisable for homeowners.

Chicago flood water removal technicians at SERVPRO can perform emergency-response cleanup and build-back services 24/7, including weekends and holidays. This team’s commitment to comprehensive training for staff and technicians ensures that restoration professionals are well-equipped to restore flood-affected structures and contents.

Caring for Kitchen Walls, Floors, and Cabinets After Flooding

  • Floodwater creeps up drywall as it saturates the gypsum and paperboard sheets, which can cause them to warp and eventually deteriorate. SERVPRO professionals address waterlogged sheetrock segments by cutting them away and prepping the wall cavities for extraction, drying, cleaning, and other restoration tasks as needed before implementing repairs
  • Floorcare varies depending on the materials affected. Ceramic tiles, for example, can often be cleaned, dried, and reinstalled. Vinyl sheets and tiles, on the other hand, lose adhesion to the floor and may require a partial or full replacement, depending on the extent of the flooding
  • Cabinets, especially those mounted directly onto exterior walls, require meticulous care to dry completely. Cabinets fixed to interior walls, meanwhile, are easier to access. SERVPRO IICRC-certified techs can cut away sheetrock on the other side of the wall, leaving an open cavity to force air through to dry the interior of the cabinet

SERVPRO of West Loop / Bucktown / Greektown can restore residential space so that they look and feel “Like it never even happened.” Homeowners can call (773) 434-9100 for fast-acting remediation.
