When you’ve suffered a flooded basement or extensive water in your home, there is an enormous amount of physical devastation that comes along with it. Ensuring that your home is properly dried out is crucial to retaining its value and minimizes the need for additional repairs.
When homeowners choose to wait to begin the cleanup process, or when it’s not taken care of properly, mold damage can form. Not only is mold damage expensive to fix, but it poses a major health risk to you and your family.
We serve Palatine, Des Plaines, Kenosha, Arlington Heights and many nearby areas, including Barrington, Buffalo Grove, Mchenry, Lake Zurich, Gurnee, Mundelein, Round Lake and other parts of Illinois & Wisconsin.
A great deal of flood damage occurs along with fire damage. As fire hoses extinguish the fire in your home, they pump out an estimated 1,000 gallons of water or more every minute!
The key to restoring value to your fire-damaged home is to begin the water removal process within 48 hours.
Once you’ve encountered flood damage, the first thing you should do is contact your insurance company. The next call you make, though, should be to a disaster restoration expert such as United Services. The cleanup process isn’t one you want to handle yourself, especially since it can be hazardous to your health.
United Services will address issues such as bacteria, corrosion, damaged personal property, electrical issues, mold remediation, and potential foundation problems. We are certified disaster restoration professionals, with extensive experience in the water damage and restoration industry.
From mold remediation to inspecting structural damage to disinfecting the affected area, we’re available 24 hours a day to provide emergency response when you need it most.

Sudden heavy rainfalls can hit an area hard, sometimes leading to unexpected flooding throughout an entire neighborhood.
Widespread flooding can bring with it severe water damage to home and property. Additionally, these floodwaters can often contain bacteria from sewage or other unhealthy chemicals. Cleanup should be conducted right away.
Plumbing failures can be caused by frozen pipes, as well as failing washing machine hoses, leaking water heaters, corroded/rusted pipes, and many other problems.
Plumbing leaks can lead to damage high in the home, damage wall cracks, and flood behind drywall. In the case of sewer line failure, they can also create a potentially unhealthy condition in the home.
Even during normal rainfall conditions, where flooding is not a threat, groundwater can find its way into a basement or crawl space.
When this happens, a homeowner can find themselves plagued by routine flooding conditions on their below-grade space. Finished basements can be ruined, crawl spaces can rot, and mold spores and odors can permeate the home.
Small water intrusions and minor plumbing leaks can be easy to overlook or ignore, and over time they can lead to major problems with mold and rot. Wall cavities, cupboards, closets, and attics are especially susceptible to damage from mold, rot, and water damage.
Additionally, vented crawl spaces and basements can allow humidity in, leading to moisture problems, mold, and rot.
