Our Latest Reviews

Just want to say how amazing our experience was with Chicago water and fire restoration. First of all, they are very attentive over the phone. They answer at all hours and are never late when appointments are scheduled. When we first had tons of water damage and mold, Dave our project manager came out right away, assessed everything and told us not to worry they will take care of the issue. Not only did he make us feel better about the situation, but he made us aware that everything will be covered. He was honest, He told us exactly what was going to be done, explained the process. We are almost done with the process and everything has gone as smooth as Dave said it would. We would give Dave and his company way more then 5 stars if we were allowed to!Thank you for the great work!!!

We are pleased with the work that has been done so far. We are still waiting for insulation and vapor barrier to be installed and the project finished. Every one we have worked with has been professional and pleasant. They have completed the job and they were great!!

Nathan Gomez came out and inspected our basement, because we had sewage coming up from the floor drain. We had cleaned the floor but was worried about wood that could be effected. Nathan was very up front and honest to say we did not really need his services and gave us advice on how to clean it up a little better. He was a true professional and very knowledgable.

Dave was great and was able to come out same-day to help us with water damage in our living room. The firm was responsive, professional, and timely.

*Update 3/19/2021After starting the repairs (we had water damage due to ice dams forming in the roof this winter) the workers discovered a material in the ceiling that is likely Asbestos (thanks 1950’s)! Of course they could only speculate as to what it was until the test is done but rather than close up shop and run for the hills until the results came back, Antonio worked tirelessly until well past 10 to make sure that he cleaned up every surface, got everything out and sealed the area off to protect us from possible exposure. We had no idea there could possibly be asbestos in our ceilings so obviously the guys weren’t prepared to have to deal with something like this. Probably a little scary to be honest, but Antonio geared up (full Hazmat style) and rocked it out with a smile on his face the whole time, at least I’m pretty sure he did, he was wearing a mask. Thank you Antonio, you went above and beyond and Chicago Fire And Water is lucky to have an employee like you in front of their customers on a day to day basis!This company has been great to work with so far, we called and within 2 hours we had Dave show up at our house to put together an estimate. He was incredibly courteous, took time to explain everything they would be doing and left us with a sense that we were definitely in good hands. Can’t wait to see how everything comes together, but based on what we’ve experienced, I know we made the right decision to call Chicago Fire and Water Restoration!

I cannot recommend Chicago Water & Fire Restoration enough! I had the pleasure of working with their project manager, Dave. He was prompt, professional, clear and reassuring. He even took extra time to help me walk through what my claims process and beyond would look like. Not to mention, Dave was able to set up the next step for his crew to come out and repair water damage right on the spot! Overall, Dave went above and beyond. This company is extremely helpful, thorough, and professional. If I could give a 6th star, I would!

I was somewhat apprehensive about using a team that promised to interact directly with my insurance company. How does that work exactly? What if there are other expenses beyond the remediation team’s work that the insurance com should address? But, when Luke and Issac made an appearance to do the remediation work they did remarkable work, but also dispelled my apprehensions. They had matters well in control and offered some guidance, so much so that I made a mental note to tell their company later in writing of their excellence. The project manager Nate was also also very forthcoming, and a wonderful leader from start to finish.

Awesome service! Nathan and his team really looked after us. Needed to get rid of wet carpet damaged by a sump pump and they exceeded my expectations. Kudos to the team that removed the carpet also. Worked diligently to complete the job; two days early. Highly recommend.

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.
