Properly drying a flooded basement or home is vital to retaining its property value, and can eliminate the need for additional repairs in the future.
When flood-damaged homes are not completely dried -- and when walls are closed up before having a chance to completely dry our, it can lead to extremely expensive mold damage to the home.
Mold, rot, and other water-related damages can lead to serious long-term health effects, and the eventual costs can easily total $100,000 or more.
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.
Flood damage is a complicated problem that calls for a trained, certified professional. Along with the water removal itself, a professional disaster restoration expert can help you address issues such as bacteria, corrosion, damaged personal property, electrical issues, mold remediation, and potential foundation problems.
Water removal and damage restoration is an industry that has made a lot of progress in recent decades.
The original method of vacuuming water and opening windows for ventilation has been long since been replaced by advanced methods and state-of-the-art technology.
We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year long to provide you with water extraction services right when you need them.

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.
