Step 6: Restoration

Feeling Comfortable with Restoration in Your Chicago Home

Water losses can be a destructive force, and after the numerous tasks and actions that start from the time that you first call our SERVPRO emergency line, it might feel like the result of the water recovery process has been a long-time coming. We are not happy with our work unless you are, and that is part of what makes every single step of the restoration process a vital one in the final product. As general of a term as restoration is, it might be helpful for you to know what this could mean for your Chicago property.

• Clean, dry space
• Newly installed materials
• The necessary completion of repairs

Can Restoration Mean Different Things?

Recovery and restoration have become interchangeable terms in the industry for a long list of actions and tasks performed by our accredited professionals in a water damaged Chicago residence. Each of the steps taken to return your home to its original condition before the water emergency can be part of this catch-all term.

Where Restoration Fits into the Process

Imagine you have witnessed the drying of your home after extraction and other mitigation services, and now you have a house waiting for exposed framing to get recovered with new wallboard or exposed subflooring to get covered once more in new, plush carpeting. The actions that we take here can truly make losses “Like it never even happened.”
