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.

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, Chicago Water and Fire 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.

I brought out CWAFR to a recently purchased condo to assess water damage and mold from a patio door leak that happened while I was away from the unit for several days. The damage was fairly minimal and I was told I did everything they would've done to dry the area and prevent further damage. No services were needed in the end. It felt good to not have unnecessary services pushed on me like some other companies try to do when attempting to get a quick sale or a customer. I will most definitely be calling CWAFR in the future if I have any issues in the future with severe water damage or mold. This is how you do business. Thank you Nathan!

I suffered water damage which I awoke to at 5:15 a.m. on a Sunday morning and had a project manager in my home in less than 90 minutes. Dehumidifiers were set up later that day and water mitigation completed the next day with the drying process proceeding and I am expecting to have an estimate for the home repairs next Monday, so within 8 days of the loss. I highly recommend Chicago water & fire in any water mitigation. I have used another company in the past and the difference this time was astounding. I am very impressed with service so far

`Mike Rice and his team have done an excellent and professional job. Mike in particular is very customer-friendly and responsive to our concerns and repair needs. I am most impressed how seamless and efficient Mike and his team moved to take care of our water damage situation. This is what I call service with a smile! I would highly recommend Chicago Water and Fire Restoration to my friends.

Chicago Water & Fire Restoration seems to have two distinct businesses -- one that helps you clean up fire and water damage and a second one that helps put your place back together. I used the first one last year and the restoration business this year. They repaired and painted everything in such a great way. The work was professionally done within a day.

Following a death in our family, Chicago Water and Fire Restoration came to the deceased person's apartment to clean and sanitize the room where he passed away. It was a stressful time, especially because of COVID protocols. Their team was incredibly responsive and compassionate, and made it easy to coordinate access to the apartment. They offered to come within 15 minutes of our call to them. It was more expensive than we'd anticipated but they were clear about the cost beforehand and we are grateful to the crew for their work. I hope we don't need this service again, but we absolutely would recommend them to anyone in similar situation

I would rate this company a 10 if I could. We were in such bad shape with water damage and Cem and his crew were there every step of the way. We could not be more appreciative of their hard work and customer service. Use them, you won’t regret it!!!

Main sewer line collapsed outside my house foundation, as a result I got water damage in 2 of my bathrooms. Plumber recommended CWFR for water mitigation. Zac came over the next day and provided options for water mitigation and repair. We ended up going with full restoration replacing bathroom drywall, tiles and carpets in the basement. Zac was also very helpful with filing claim with my insurance company and providing answers to all my questions. Benji and Trevor did a fantastic mitigating water and cleaning up afterwards. Highly recommend the team for water mitigation.

We used Chicago Water & Fire for water mitigation and reconstruction efforts. They were professional, quick and thorough with their work. Quality was very good and they offered to help with a few small extras. Would recommend CW&F for these unfortunate circumstances.
