Water Damage in Chicago North Shore

Immediately after cleaning up the aftermath of a flood, our team checks for water damage and strategizes the best course of action. This entire process covers the following:

  • Mitigation 

The first thing we do when responding to a call about water damage is to find the source of the flood and stop it if possible. This often means cutting off the water supply from the mains or setting up barriers to prevent more floodwater from streaming in. 

  • Inspection 

We then continue to assess the current damage and look for signs of possible long-term damage using tools like hygrometers and moisture detectors to pinpoint problem points such as soaked insulation or other porous materials.

  • Cleanup 

A water-damaged property will often have many damaged components that must be disposed of. We will likely need to remove soaked drywall, insulation, and carpeting to reduce the risk of structural damage and mold infestation. After the cleanup is complete, the team will then be able to continue with the restoration process.

  • Restoration

Professionals specializing in water damage restoration in Chicago North Shore systematically repair or replace the permanently damaged parts of a property to restore its original appearance and condition. Restoration can be partial or complete reconstruction, depending on the severity of the damage and how much of the original structure the owner wants to preserve. 


Mold Remediation in Chicago North Shore

Restoration 1 offers mold remediation immediately on the heels of water damage restoration. Mold is a credible threat in every property that’s been flooded. It takes a long period for porous materials like wood and drywall to dry completely after a long soaking. Also, since microbial growth can start as early as 72 hours after mold spores have been exposed to water, mold removal experts need to be on site after this window to do a complete inspection.

If mold does begin to grow on your property, it’s best for professionals to deal with it. Unfortunately, many don’t realize that removing mold can worsen the problem if it’s not done right. Mold releases spores when disturbed, and these microscopic particles can disperse through the air and spread throughout the property. The cycle will repeat if they land on a wet or moist surface. Therefore, it is best to entrust mold remediation in Chicago North Shore to our mold removal experts at Restoration 1.
