We are so happy about our experience with CWFR! They were very prompt in coming over to do an assessment after an emergency plumbing situation in our basement, and Mike was kind and helpful in explaining what he would recommend. Sam was wonderful support in managing the process for us, particularly as we are the home owners and they were interacting with us and our tenants. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

This is a review of Chicago Water & Fire's onboarding process and initial site review - no work has been performed yet. Dave and his team were so kind, courtesy (they asked our preference for masking wearing indoors), and thorough in their description of the mitigation and restoration processes. Their investigation of our water damage was efficient (took about 15 minutes) and detailed, and was impressed at how quickly they could mobilize a crew to start work.

It’s difficult enough to have a issue such as plumbing and water damage. Chicago Water and Fire Demolition and Restoration made this nightmare bearable. Brian and Mark did the demolition. Not only were they were.knowledgeable, they were professional, neat, and in every sense perfect gentlemen! They were equally reassuring and helped calm me. I was truly blessed having them, as well as Arnaldo Hernandez, the case manager. He was was extremely helpful and caring, and equally a true gentleman. His words of assurance were greatly appreciated beyond belief. In addition, Samantha Drake went above and beyond assisting me. When upset by my homeowner’s insurance agent, she took care of supplying data. I highly recommend this company. They deserve a five star rating! (I’d like to give them 10 stars). She handled things for me, assuring me that the company followed protocol. I don’t know what I would have done without them.They worked with my homeowners’ insurance, making sure that technological data was submitted.Once again, I want to emphasize that they were wonderful to work with and helped turn a nightmare into a a workable experience.We are now moving into the restoration process. I feel confident that this, too, will be handled expertaly and without any issue, I’m looking forward in having my home put back to its original status. Thank y

Arnaldo Hernandez, the Project Manager, and his staff Jason, team leader, Allen, Project Manager trainee and Christian, have done a fantastic job after my home had considerable water damage. They were here promptly and worked until completion of getting all water damaged areas drying and ready for the next phase of the project.

Let’s face it, no one wants to spend money on mold removal or any remediation service; at the end of the day, we just paid to make a hole in our kitchen wall (note, unless you specifically pay to have the insulation/drywall replaced, this service is just removal/cleaning). We selected Chicago Water and Fire Restoration to remove molded material near our kitchen sink that was discovered when we began tear-out to replace our kitchen countertop. After contacting other companies who did not get back to us, we contacted Chicago Water and Fire Restoration and within 2 hours Nathan G. was at our home inspecting the problem and giving us an estimate. Less than two hours after accepting the proposal, Nathan’s team was taking out the molded drywall and disinfecting the area. Work was completed quickly and the open area was tightly covered with plastic and tape to prevent water getting in until repairs could be made to the wall. I initially had some concerns about moisture under the plastic and reached out to the company. They responded and asked me to reach out the next day if there was still a concern. We decided to open the plastic up overnight and run a fan all night to dry out the area. In the morning things seemed to be dry - not sure what they would have done had we not done this extra step ourselves. We did kind of feel like for the price we paid a fan or dehumidifier should have been included, but since we didn’t get estimates from other similar companies, we don’t really know how the price compares.

Amazing responsiveness and professionalism! Joe C. came out quickly to assess the damage and provide remediation recommendations. Then the clean up crew was out here within a couple hours to perform the remediation. Highly recommend CWAFR

I had a sewer line collapse which led to 3 feet of water in my crawlspace. I needed sewage and water damage clean up quickly. Dave from Chicago Water and Fire Restoration came out to inspect the problem. He walked me through the cleanup that was needed and provided detail on the process. It was helpful to understand what would be done in my home, who would be involved, and a point of contact while work was in progress. All of the workers were respectful of my home and the work was completed based on my schedule. Dave was very responsive and ensured the project was completed in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Chicago Water & Fire.

Our Technology

We are firm believers in investing in our own business to help our customers. A good example of that is our investment in Matterport 3D loss scanning technology. By taking a 3D scan of your loss, your insurance provider rarely needs to set foot in your home.

These scans create exact, detailed measurements as well as full 360-degree views of your loss, which is essential to minimizing costs, extra visits, and downtime before getting put back to normal. In addition, our management team views each loss for quality control purposes.

As of 2019, we are the 2nd largest user of Matterport technology in the country.
