Highly Rated Solutions for Water Damage

Water damage, a pervasive issue in both residential and commercial properties, can arise from various sources such as leaks, floods, and even humidity. It typically affects areas less visible or frequently accessed, including behind walls, under floors, and in attic spaces, making early detection challenging. If left unaddressed, water damage can weaken structural components, ruin personal belongings, and promote mold growth, posing health risks. Our team of water damage restoration professionals is equipped with advanced techniques and tools to effectively dry, clean, and restore affected areas to their pre-damage condition, minimizing the impact on your health and property.

Water Damage Restoration Process

Since 1988, Chicago Water & Fire Restoration has been offering swift and effective repairs for both residential and commercial customers. With our experience and advanced equipment, we can rapidly restore your property to its pre-water damage condition.

Although each water damage is distinct and demands a tailored approach, our restoration plan remains consistently structured.

Step 1

Damage Analysis

Once our experts reach your home, they will assess the water damage and explain its severity. Utilizing state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology, the team identifies all affected areas, offers quick and precise estimates, and visualizes the restoration process from start to finish.

Step 2

Water Extraction

To prevent water from spreading throughout the structure and speed up the drying process, the team begins by thoroughly extracting water. They use high-quality, specialized commercial equipment, including powerful pumps, to effectively remove standing water, even if it's not visible to the owner.

Step 3

Water Dry-Out

After removing most of the water, the specialists proceed with the drying process, employing professional-grade dehumidifiers and specialized drying equipment that circulates hot and dry air. This effectively releases water that is not visible.

Step 4

Disinfection & Cleaning

We proceed with disinfection and thoroughly cleaning the damaged area, especially when dealing with sewage due to possible health effects. Employing the best technology and fully trained specialists, we disinfect and eliminate potential odors or bacteria from the wastewater.

Step 5

Restoration & Repair

After these steps, your property might require work to return to its pre-loss condition. The restoration phase involves either minor repairs or the reconstruction of entire areas of your site. Our experts simplify the restoration process by handling the initial damage mitigation and the rebuilding of affected areas.

Procedures for Water Damage Categories

Water damage can have severe consequences, making your home unsafe and uninhabitable. No matter the severity, our crew is trained to clean and restore your home with the least disruption possible.
water damage services
Water intrusions occur due to damaged sanitary water supply lines. To qualify as a Level I situation, water must not have sat in a structure for more than 72 hours, and the affected materials should be clean and well-maintained.
Water damage reaches Level II when the water extensively contains chemical, biological, and/or physical contamination. If the water source was initially Level I, it would degrade to Level II after 72 hours. If the water is Level II, it will escalate to Level III after 48 hours.
Water damage escalates to Level III when the intrusion is from a severely unsanitary source, containing disease-causing agents or when the water has been in a structure for over 120 hours. Regardless of the initial source, water may be categorized as Level III if it is allowed to remain on the property for five days.
