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.

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.

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.
