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.

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.

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.

Our Latest Reviews

After a plumbing emergency I was referred to Chicago Water & Fire Restoration for mold inspection, clean up, and ceiling repair. Dave K., the project manager who came out for inspection was awesome. He communicated clearly and concisely to me everything that was going to happen and made sure I understood before making my appointment for mold removal. The day of removal, though I had booked an appointment slot of 8-10 am, the crew arrived at 10:45. This did interfere with my working since I set the appointment at a specific time for a reason. However, the agents I spoke with over the phone were apologetic and kept me informed of how close the crew was to my destination. The mold removal went well. Jennifer not only called, but emailed me to follow-up and let me know how far out the contractors were in appointments for restoration of the ceiling. Overall, I am pleased with the service thus far, pricing, and time spent, each step has been about 45 minutes to an hour. I am hopeful the ceiling repair will be equally as long and they will have resolved my problem within a month. Would definitely recommend them based on timeliness alone! - A. Grady-Gant

I used CWAFR in March after a dishwasher leak caused damage to my kitchen floor. They were wonderful - super responsive, always on time, followed covid precautions. I'd highly recommend them to anyone needing water remediation services.

I had an emergency sewage remediation and we received prompt, excellent service. Joe came out within an hour of my call to provide an estimate and Jason & Joe were there a couple hours later to complete the cleanup. They were awesome and did a great job. Would highly recommend.

We've used Chicago Water & Fire Restoration a couple times and each time it was an amazing experience. Nathan and his team were so professional and completely explained the process they were going to do to fix our issue. Their repair team was quick, efficient, clean and totally professional. If you need any type of Water or Fire restoration work done, no doubt you should call Chicago Fire and Restoration - highly recommend.

We had gone through a misunderstanding about the bill. But the management took charge and re-escalated the issue. I am recalling my initial negative review to be fair to the business.The tech team were professional and had good communication.I was not happy with the communication from the office staff.The manager though did handle well the de-escalation of the matter which I appreciate.The pricing in my opinion is quite high, but the response is quick.

I noticed mold in my walk-in closet and in a corner of my bedroom. I did some research into mold and I called CWFR. I met with Dave the following day. He was extremely professional and put my mind at ease immediately. He described to me his recommendation to remove one wall in the closet. He described in detail the process for this removal of the wall and to clean and spray the area to prevent the return of mold. He also advised that there was a lifetime guarantee that the mold would not return. Ryan and Max came to my house on time the next day with some very impressive equipment. There was snow on the ground and they wiped the wheels of the equipment and completed the job leaving the area and my carpeted stairway in pristine condition. The air quality of the closet and bedroom was clean and safe due to their equipment. I would recommend this company based on my firsthand knowledge of the quality of their work and the quality of their employees.

Just want to say how amazing our experience was with Chicago water and fire restoration. First of all, they are very attentive over the phone. They answer at all hours and are never late when appointments are scheduled. When we first had tons of water damage and mold, Dave our project manager came out right away, assessed everything and told us not to worry they will take care of the issue. Not only did he make us feel better about the situation, but he made us aware that everything will be covered. He was honest, He told us exactly what was going to be done, explained the process. We are almost done with the process and everything has gone as smooth as Dave said it would. We would give Dave and his company way more then 5 stars if we were allowed to!Thank you for the great work!!!
