Chicago Full-Service Restoration Since 1988

Water Damage

Our top priority is to quickly mitigate and minimize the seen or unseen water damage present in your home. We do this by extracting all the water in the area, applying disinfectant, removing any non-salvageable materials, and using equipment to dry the materials that can be saved. This not only prevents harmful mold from growing in the damaged area, but it also saves you money in the long run.

Hardwood Floor Drying

When hardwood floors become wet, they expand and swell at the edges of the boards, which could cost thousands of dollars in repairs. By using our proven drying and restorative method of using a combination of low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers & the wood floor Proven Drying System™, we can effectively dry your wood floor in addition to the wood subfloor underneath it as well.

Sewage Cleanup

Water that contains a significant degree of chemical, biological and/or physical contamination needs to be cleaned up quickly to decrease the chance of spreading disease and producing mold. Response time is critical, so it’s important to get emergency restoration service providers into your home as soon as possible to reduce repair costs.

Fire Mitigation

After the fire trucks leave, your property will likely suffer from not only fire and smoke damage, but also widespread water damage and flooding from efforts to put the fire out. Chicago Water and Fire Restoration has the specialized expertise to restore your home to its pre-fire condition. This includes eliminating water damage, repairing fire damage, eradicating smoke odors, and deep-cleaning soot from upholstery and carpet.

Anti-Microbial Treatments

When water is introduced into a warm, stable environment, bacteria and fungi are likely to grow. When these organisms start growing, they can infest your home and cause harmful disease and promote further damage to your home. We use industry-leading anti-microbial treatments to eradicate and suppress the growth of harmful microorganisms.

Chicago Water & Fire Restoration did a tremendous job in providing quick and efficient service after a pipe caused water damage to my home. They were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Our project manager Nathan G. was great. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future!

Amazing from the start, efficient & professional mitigation and repairs!Their teams quickly analyzed, mitigated and fixed the water damage in our main-bedroom's bathroom. From first interaction to the last, our family had no issues with documentation for our insurance, and appreciated the clean work by their technicians.Everyone was polite, professional, and Covid-safe while analyzing the situation, preventing further damage and making repairs.Many thanks go to Dave K., who inspected and 3D-scanned the repair area while coordinating the mitigation team. Also to Samantha D., who helped push the repairs through to a Dan (could be wrong name) who's technicians Jonny D. and Trevon W. completed the repairs and cleaned everything up. While a large-seeming team, they were seamlessly-coordinated and really did what was needed quickly!If I ever find myself in a another similar situation, I would not hesitate to call CWFR. -- Sean

Working with Chicago Water & Fire Restoration was a great experience!! They handled water mitigation and repair to our basement and did an EXCELLENT job! Zac, Travis and their crews went above and beyond, handling each step with the utmost professionalism and cleanliness. If anything extra was needed to be done it was done without an issue. The final restoration was done perfectly. If the need to use their services was to happen again, I would call them without hesitation. I will definitely refer CW&FR to every and anyone. Thanks for doing a great job!

I highly recommend Chicago Water & Fire Restoration. Nate came out on New Years Day to see the damage and provide a plan of action. Rob provided the quote and Johnny, Trevon, and Rich did an excellent job fixing all of the issues with sink, water damage and cabinets. Not to mention the entire crew were timely, honored their commitments and were extremely professional and respectful.

Can't say enough about Nathan Gomez. After a prompt response and a little communication confusion, Nathan actually waited for me to arrive at my home. We're selling out home and the home inspector reported a possible mold issue; not what we wanted to hear. Figuring it was going to be thousands to fix, Nathan inspected the area in question and purposed a solution to fix the issue that was not going to be overly expensive. CWFR was great to work with especially Nathan!

We had a great initial meeting with project manager, Shawn Wilson. He was kind, patient, knowledgeable, and able to diagnose our situation and come up with a plan. We look forward to using and recommending your company because of Shawn. Thank you.

Chicago Water & Fire Restoration is by far one of the top companies I’ve worked with on home repairs. On the day after Christmas I received a call about a burst pipe in my multi unit building causing damage to the unit of origination, the unit below and the basement. After calling my plumber Chicago sewer & drain to find the leak, I was recommend to Chicago water & fire restoration. Same day they were able to schedule an appointment and connect me with a Project manager by the name of Mike. Mike spent countless time that evening taking photos, marking damage and advising me and my tenants of next steps. The mitigation team was able to come out promptly the next morning and begin demolition. Additionally, The company had no issues sending documentation to both my insurance and my tenants insurance for remittance of approval and placed myself on the cc for transparency. I never really had any concerns or questions, but my team of experts were always readily available. Sam, Jenny, Joseph, and Mike are all truly amazing and they made this experience painless and seamless. They are a great company that I highly recommend.

I called late on New Years Eve with a recommendation from our association's emergency maintenance person. Dave Kunz showed up within an hour and scoped the job and explained the process. The initial cleanup and sanitation took about and hour at 2:30a on New Years Day! The crew was back at 11:30a for most of the rest of the day to finish the mitigation. Mark and Benjamin did an awesome job and this company was the most professional service I have received in a long time.

We recently had water damage from a broken sewer line. Chicago Restoration was at our house to access the damage in less than two hours of the first call. The repair crew was out within 2 hours after that. They put pads on the floor in the powder room and the entry hall to absorb the moisture from the floors. We had water damage in the basement as well and they had three blowers set up to dry out the ceiling. The equipment ran for three days to make certain the floors and ceiling were completely dry. Great experience.
