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. CWF 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.

Repair and Rebuild Services

In the majority of water and fire damage cases, a home will need to have repair and reconstruction services after the dry out and mitigation has been completed. We offer full-service water and fire restoration treatments, which includes the reconstruction of your affected property.

Crime Scene Trauma Cleanup

We partner with police, local governments, communities, and other groups to clean up crime scenes, including after death or trauma.  Our professionals are fully equipped with the proper supplies, tools and training. These experienced and certified employees will remove any health risks including life-threatening diseases which may be present.

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.

Storm Damage Repair

Property damage caused by severe weather can be devastating to your family or business. Storm damage restoration can be complex, so you need a company that can deliver repairs you can trust. From roof tarping to water removal and structural drying, CWF Restoration has you covered.

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.

My condo bathroom ceiling & walls were water damaged from a clogged toilet drain pipe while being rodded out by Stellar Plumbing .The sewage water came in thru my exhaust fan on my ceiling . About a 1/2 gallon of water came thru the exhaust fan cover all over my sink, floor, & toilet ! I called in Chicago Water & Fire Restoration co. to determine extent of damage and amount to mitigate & repair Their Mitigation mgr. Dave explained very professionally to me the process to determine extent of and approximate cost to mitigate & repair, after he inspected and used moisture detector meter on drywalls. When the mitigation team came in on time for my appointment , they immediately took extra precaution with footwear & floor coverings to protect my white carpeting . After removing all the damaged drywall , and sanitizing everything ,they cleaned up all the mess , and left me with a usable shower, toilet, and very clean bathroom. In less than 4 hours ! I was very impressed. CWFR was than able to give me an estimate once the walls and ceiling were open and exposed. Once the insurance Co. approved the estimate in less than a week the restoration team came in , and once again very professionally protected my carpeting & flooring . Since i only had 1 bath & toilet which had to be removed to replace wall behind it , time frame was of major importance. Felipe the restoration mgr. assured me i would have everything repaired and washroom repainted in less than 3 days. He and crew also managed to repair & paint the wall behind where the toilet goes, in 1 day. On the next day S & J Plumbing of Arlington Hts . came in right on time at 930 am , and Tim the plumber replaced the water cutoff valve, supply line, and reinstalled the toilet in less than 45 minutes ! Mind you all 48 units had to have their water cutoff starting at 9am, as there is no main water cutoff for individual condos ! I was astounded at the timely co-ordination of the plumber Tim, Felipe, Maint. mgr Dave of condos, and repair crew to make this all happen perfectly ! Amazingly the whole repair process was completely done in 2 days! I am so glad i listened to my Daughter ,who also had water damage to her kitchen 6 years ago, and highlyrecommended CWFR CO. I wish i could give a 6 star rating to Chicago Water & Fire Restoration of Elmhurst, and S & J Plumbing Of Arlington HTS. I am so thankful to both these companies and all their employees !

Gilbert Gomez came out to do an inspection for me. He was very thorough in his inspection and very detailed. He was extremely knowledgeable and it was clear to me that he is an expert in his field. He walked me through everything that I needed to know, provided good examples and gave me a detailed breakdown on what needed to be done. I would recommend this company and would also recommend him specifically. He is very professional, helpful and experienced. I look forward to doing business with this company.

Chicago Water & Fire came out on Friday evening to scope out my flooded townhouse, due to a broken water pipe.Mike the project manager for my unit.Came out and gave me all the information I needed. He had a mitigation crew out the very next morning. They arrived promptly at 8 and were out by 11:30. Diamonte and Manny were very professional and answered all my questions that I had. We scheduled a time for their return a few days later. They worked around my schedule. Very happy with the service.

Company showed up immediately (within an hour or two of my call) after I got home from a vacation with water damage in my house. All of my interactions thus far with disaster services have been professional and their crews have been on time and pleasant to deal with.

Update: Unfortunately, we were in need of CWFR's services after another sewer issue with our basement (and learned the value of getting your sewer lines rodded annually, which we had not been told to do). I knew my first call to make, and could not have had a better estimator than Tyler! He was friendly, kind and compassionate, and made a stressful situation so much easier to handle. I really appreciate his thoughtful and helpful manner, as well as a fun conversation we got to have about motorcycles. If you find yourself in the unenviable position of having to have restoration work done, ask for Tyler to come help you walk through your options!We are so happy about our experience with CWFR! They were very prompt in coming over to do an assessment after an emergency plumbing situation in our basement, and Mike was kind and helpful in explaining what he would recommend. Sam was wonderful support in managing the process for us, particularly as we are the home owners and they were interacting with us and our tenants. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Mark and James came out at an orderly time and demolished the flooring on top of cutting open the sides of the wall as well. They were neat and accurate on what they needed to do; and when it came time to remove their leftover equipments, Kaylin came out to do the job and they were all professional.

The team that came out to clean and sanitize my home after a water leak was wonderful. The 3 men were courteous, professional and personable. They explained each step in the process of mitigation and asked me if I understood, making the process very easy for me.They were clean, wearing booties in the home and efficient. They returned 4 days later to pick up the drying equipment and again the staff was punctual and professional.I appreciate the follow up with the office staff. I highly recommend CWAFR. Great people to work with. I hope that the manager is able to see this review and let the 3 men who worked at my home know that they were great and should receive a complement for a job well done. 5/13/2022

Ryan came out first to expect the water damage and my husband and I thought that he was so nice and helpful. After Matt and James I guess you can call them the clean up crew their service was excellent. I would recommend this company and especially this crew to anyone. Thanks

After our sump pump failed we had water seeping through our basement carpet and needed to know what other damage had been done (drywall? insulation?). Shawn, our project manager, was professional and friendly when he came to assess the basement. My husband and I both asked him a million questions (some more than once, poor guy) and he patiently answered and helped us understand our options and what needed to be done. We ended up needing to tear out the carpet and lots of drywall. The work was done quickly and the guys explained what they were doing as they went along. They were also very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend Chicago Fire and Water!

My basement got water in due to a failed pump. The CWFR team came in right away and moved all of my items, covered them, and immediately got to work. All of the service men were professional and polite (except Andrew- not friendly but professional). Would have given 5 stars but the team nicked my floor as they removed the dehumidifiers from the basement (not a huge gash but enough of a nick for me to notice. They didn't put down the protective runner.)
