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.

Zac and his team were very professional and responsive. He told us we could call him day or night if we had an issue. We had to test that third day after one of the fans blew out the pilot on our water heater. He was there himself to resolve it within an hour of reaching out.Above and beyond customer service, made this very stressful situation much more manageable. Would definitely recommend.

AP manager is currently assisting me with a pending billing matter. It would have been great if the other AP employees were aware of helping clients the same way.

Shawn came out to give me an estimate within an hour of when I called. We scheduled an appointment the next morning. A crew came out on time and did a great job and was done within a few hours. I was pleasantly pleased with the whole experience.

Wonderful company. Gem was very professional, as were the Mitigation men Jon + Enrique. I would use them again anytime I have a house problem.

Dave was very informative and explained in good detail what he is going to do and what the rest of the crew was going to be doing to fix our water damage to our ceiling from a leaking toilet. He also was very patient while we filed our HO claim, which was not an easy task.

This company provided excellent service; they were friendly, and started work before I knew it. Cem Senel was the representative from the company. He was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and had excellent customer service. He coordinated everything, and even assisted me with my insurance claim. This company's response time was beyond my expectation. I love the service.

Water damage is a very stressful situation to anyone who has to experience it before or is experiencing now. To a family that had their first water damage, I'm sure glad we picked Chicago Water and Fire restoration. They were professional and responsive to our needs and answered any question we had (some were repetitive or dumb) but they answered it honestly and professionally. What also is best about them is that they also do the restoration and reconstruction in the same company. The outcome looks amazing. Our family is very satisfied with how it turned out. We went from carpet to vinyl planking that looks very much like hardwood floors and we couldn't be any more pleased. They completed the work on time as they said they would and even came back to fix a few things here and there that we noticed as we were living in the house. James, the water mitigation project manager and Robert the restoration project manager were awesome. Those two are the ones I had the most contact with and they were highly efficient and effective! Thanks again!

We've had two interactions with CWAFR. The reasons for the damage were very different, but both resulted in water bubbling through the drywall into the paint in our master bedroom. They had assessors out very quickly, and provided thorough estimates. They also greatly simplified working with our homeowners' insurance policy.Once approved, workers ripped out the drywall and insulation, then ran industrial dehumidifiers for 2-3 days to prevent mold. Afterwards they scanned for residual moisture using sonic screwdrivers (so far as I can tell), then replaced the insulation, drywall, and repainted everything. The workers were professional, knowledgeable, patient enough to explain everything in detail, and most recently were respectful of our request to wear masks outside of the work area. Both times they left our bedroom better than it was originally. Very impressed with this company.

Dealing with what and mold can be stressful. But, Chicago Fire & Water has always been amazing. Zac was quick to respond and come onsite (within an hour I believe), clearly explained what he saw and what needed to be done to remedy the issue, and had a team out to fix it immediately. All resolved within just a few days. Highly recommend Zac and team.

I recently had a toilet leak and subsequent water damage. Every one I dealt with in the company was great. They helped deal with the insurance and of course did all the work needed to get things back to normal. Corey and Victor did the actual work and did such a great job! They were professional and prompt and paid attention to details. They also cleaned up everything which is more important than it sounds!

An area of our floor became an issue during a buyer's home inspection. Zac came out twice-- before and after a storm passed through-- to assess the possibility of water penetration into our unit. He was professional, knowledgeable, and courteous throughout. He was able to make a professional assessment that should put the buyer at ease. We would definitely use them again!
