How Long Is Flood Damage Restoration at My Chicago Home Likely to Take?
SERVPRO Provides the Necessary Resources to Expedite Flood Damage Restoration
Knowing early enough when you can get back into your Chicago home after a flooding incident can help you plan your routines better, whether seeking alternative accommodation or otherwise. However, with the incident's clutter, soling, and damages left at the property, such estimation is not that simple.
An estimate of the time flood damage restoration at your Chicago home might require can be based on several factors. Professionals like SERVPRO make an assessment based on the activity’s restoration might involve since each activity requires time:
Typical activities when restoring floods include:
- Water extraction and material demolition
- Cleaning the structure and contents
- Decontamination and deodorization
- Drying and rebuilding or refinishing
Some activities take minimal time, although they significantly impact the restoration outcome. For instance, our SERVPRO crew chiefs can inspect your entire home within the first hour of arriving at your premises. The information gained from the inspection helps reveal the resources needed for restorative work, including the number of people, machines, and cleaning products. The assessment reveals when you are likely to get back into your home since it shows how much work is involved in the main restoration tasks.
Some time-consuming actions after a flooding incident include:
- Organizing and decluttering the site
- Cleaning various items
- Drying wet materials
In addition to providing accurate estimates, our SERVPRO teams can also expedite the process. For instance, we can run the restoration without creating too much clutter since our large trash cans store waste materials such as demolished drywall or ceiling panels. We can use several air movers and dehumidifier units during drying, thus completing the drying process faster.
