CWAFR and David were great! I submitted a request for a visit late in the evening and had an immediate reply from the dispatch team…and a visit from David scheduled for 10am the following morning. He quickly identified the issue and showed it to me in an educational way, then ran through our options and talked next steps with me. I felt supported and listened to…Chicago Water and Fire Restoration is programmed in my phone and will always be my first call when there’s an issue!

Tyler, project manager, was quick to respond to the emergency and did a thorough testing of water damage. Mitigation was scheduled and went smoothly. So far so good. All workers have been professional and efficient.

These guys are great. Woke up to find out water heater had leaked and destroyed the ceiling below it. The appraiser was at the house about an hour after I made the call and the cleanup crew was out shortly thereafter. Will definitely use this company again if (hopefully it doesn't) the need arises.

Great job! All the way from Ryan who was their first responder to the crew. Great job, professional and did not leave a mess!! In today's world, nice to meet individuals who actually seem to care and do not act as if they are doing me a favor by taking my money - great job!!

We were referred by Szabo Plumbing. Since THEY were excellent, we trusted what they had to say about CW&FR. They showed us what the problem was, determined that it would take a few days with fans & a dehumidifier, then did what they said. They were very professional.

Chicago Water and Fire has helped us twice with water damage in our condo. Each time they were very prompt and incredibly knowledgeable. They made what could have been a difficult process as simple as possible. While we’re hoping to not need any water damage cleanup in the near future, if we do, they’re the first people we’ll call. We recommend their services to others in the area! You can trust them to get the job done right.

Matt was very professional and did his best to work with us and the insurance after a hot water tank fail. He was sincerely sorry for our situation and wanted to make it as easy for us as he could. I would recommend this company for this type of work.

I was in a bit of a bind after I was sold a condo that had significant water damage that was not disclosed to me during the sale and not caught by my home inspector. I called another well-known water restoration company, but they could not fit me in for a week; the morning of my appointment, they texted me (not even a phone call) and said they needed to push my appointment because they were backed up from the weekend. I was obviously upset, as I had already waited a week, so my realtor referred me to CWFR. The project manager was at my condo within 90 minutes, did a thorough investigation, then sat with me for almost 30 minutes to go through everything in the contract with me. The quote was FAR less than the other company provided me, CWFR offered financing with 0% interest for 12 months and the crew was at my condo completing the remediation the next day. I have had a lot of bad experiences over the past few weeks as the seller of my condo lied about many things, but working with CWFR and their wonderful, responsive team really put my mind at ease. Thank you to everyone who provided me with support; I will certainly be referring you to my friends and family.

Matt Skoog was amazing. He was very professional and understood our needs and worked to ensure that all of our mold was treated. Service was immediate and attic looks great. He also assisted to ensure that we were not overcharged for services. Would recommend this company.

Dave was extremely responsive answering all my questions, and put together a thorough diagnostic before his crew helped me clean-up damage caused by a pipe leak. They were professional, timely, and were very considerate throughout the process. I highly recommend CWF Restoration.

Jordan and the Mitigation team were very good.• They tolerated many questions and we made good decisions together.Sal and the Restoration workers were excellent.• The job was done to spec, quickly and with skill.• They cleaned up nicely.• I worried that our granite countertops would crack during removal. They said it if did, they have a granite guy who can repair or help facilitate a replacement (at our expense). But they were skilled enough that it didn't break. A huge relief!• The Project Manager will find replacement materials. I handed them a detailed list, but he would have done it.Here's what I don't like:• Estimate is not itemized. it reads, “1 ea. @ 350 Sq Ft,” and so on; then there's one total price.• They needed more $ for the flooring and asked me to sign a change order to purchase it. Also not itemized, just “Flooring @ $xx.”• They purchased more than needed and told me to return it for a store credit. I called the main office and they did return the extra materials and issued me a credit.Still, they seem to be the best around. We shopped two other companies. They're a big, well-resourced and organized outfit. They care about their reputation and asked if there was anything else they could have done better. I'm glad I picked them.Advice:• Understand that counters need to be removed if floors are replaced. There is no guarantee (with anyone) that it won’t be damaged, and you’ll have to shop, pay and wait for a replacement. Nobody mentions that part.• If you want to know what the materials estimate is based on, ask or if you acquire any materials yourself, have it removed from the estimate. But understand that material is just a portion of their operating costs.• If asked to authorize extra charges, buy it yourself and have your own receipt to return extras and get your money back.

Matt came by today to review some mold damage we have from a leaking toilet; he was thorough, friendly and informative. He came out super quickly and scheduled me a crew for the same day to do mitigation work. I'm grateful to Matt for helping me during this really challenging time after becoming a new homeowner!

Matt Skoog is very empathetic, relatable and professional. My only concern is that I waited 3 days after my water/sewage incident to call CFAWR!! Wish I would have called immediately. Don’t hesitate to have Matt assess the damage and recommend a course of cleanup/ restoration, especially if your wood floors have been affected by water/sewage overflow. Time is of the essence!

Can’t rate this enough. The very first day I moved into my apartment we found the kitchen sink overflowing with black liquid all over the apartment. It was an incredibly stressful day that was put it ease by Dave who came and inspected the situation that night. He is not only good at his job but his customer service was excellent. The cleaning crew came the next day and set up and finished in under 40 minutes. Cannot thank this crew enough for saving the day!!

The project manager, Javier, was awesome. When my parent's condo had a water flood problem, Javier and his crew came out promptly, didn't make my 80+ yrs. old parents nervous, and took them through the problem step-by-step. Thanks for the clean up, but thank you much more for the comforting my parents.

Chicago water & fire restoration team did an excellent job removing mold and repair the floor and the wall. They also communicated with the insurance company very professionally. They are my go-to team if I run into similar issues. I trust them and believe that my issue is in good hands when they take over.

This company was great, I called in the morning for a mold inspection in my attic and by early afternoon an inspector had arrived and gave me a very reasonable estimate. I was pleasantly surprised when the work was able to be performed the next day. The crew were courteous and professional. After completing the work, they explained what they did and answered all our questions before leaving.I would highly recommend this company.

We had some water damage in our basement and called CWFR. Ryan Majewski was out the next day to assess the damage. He was very informative and helpful, getting us through this awful time. Jason and his water tech showed up same day and worked nonstop until 7pm to mitigate the area. These guys worked so hard and still had a stop to go after our house. They were awesome. Thank you to all!
