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.

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.

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

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!!!

Nathan Gomez came out and inspected our basement, because we had sewage coming up from the floor drain. We had cleaned the floor but was worried about wood that could be effected. Nathan was very up front and honest to say we did not really need his services and gave us advice on how to clean it up a little better. He was a true professional and very knowledgable.

*Update 3/19/2021After starting the repairs (we had water damage due to ice dams forming in the roof this winter) the workers discovered a material in the ceiling that is likely Asbestos (thanks 1950’s)! Of course they could only speculate as to what it was until the test is done but rather than close up shop and run for the hills until the results came back, Antonio worked tirelessly until well past 10 to make sure that he cleaned up every surface, got everything out and sealed the area off to protect us from possible exposure. We had no idea there could possibly be asbestos in our ceilings so obviously the guys weren’t prepared to have to deal with something like this. Probably a little scary to be honest, but Antonio geared up (full Hazmat style) and rocked it out with a smile on his face the whole time, at least I’m pretty sure he did, he was wearing a mask. Thank you Antonio, you went above and beyond and Chicago Fire And Water is lucky to have an employee like you in front of their customers on a day to day basis!This company has been great to work with so far, we called and within 2 hours we had Dave show up at our house to put together an estimate. He was incredibly courteous, took time to explain everything they would be doing and left us with a sense that we were definitely in good hands. Can’t wait to see how everything comes together, but based on what we’ve experienced, I know we made the right decision to call Chicago Fire and Water Restoration!

I cannot recommend Chicago Water & Fire Restoration enough! I had the pleasure of working with their project manager, Dave. He was prompt, professional, clear and reassuring. He even took extra time to help me walk through what my claims process and beyond would look like. Not to mention, Dave was able to set up the next step for his crew to come out and repair water damage right on the spot! Overall, Dave went above and beyond. This company is extremely helpful, thorough, and professional. If I could give a 6th star, I would!

I was somewhat apprehensive about using a team that promised to interact directly with my insurance company. How does that work exactly? What if there are other expenses beyond the remediation team’s work that the insurance com should address? But, when Luke and Issac made an appearance to do the remediation work they did remarkable work, but also dispelled my apprehensions. They had matters well in control and offered some guidance, so much so that I made a mental note to tell their company later in writing of their excellence. The project manager Nate was also also very forthcoming, and a wonderful leader from start to finish.

Awesome service! Nathan and his team really looked after us. Needed to get rid of wet carpet damaged by a sump pump and they exceeded my expectations. Kudos to the team that removed the carpet also. Worked diligently to complete the job; two days early. Highly recommend.
