Nothing is simple when a water, fire, mold, or storm disaster strikes your Glendale Heights home. One crisis seems to lead to another, leaving you feeling stressed, helpless, and overwhelmed. Reach out to our team of dedicated and Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC)-trained technicians when you experience a loss. Replace the stress with confidence that we have the workforce, equipment, and experience to get the job

Water Damage
Regardless of why you need water cleanup in your Glendale Heights house, thorough water removal and comprehensive drying are the keys to returning the wet space to preloss condition. Water can spread across floors and soak walls and ceilings because of plumbing leaks, appliance failures, spills, heavy precipitation, and other causes. Our crews include Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) who are skilled in strategies to remove moisture and use advanced technology to map any migration of the water into building cavities or structural components. Locating and removing hidden water is crucial because any residual wetness continues to deteriorate building materials and can lead to mold growth and damage.
 
Prevention of progressive harm and secondary damage is why SERVPRO crews waste no time when responding to your request for help. Day or night, we pick up your call. We arrive at your water damaged property driving service vehicles fully stocked with water removal and structural drying equipment. An experienced manager assesses the loss and designs a plan to mitigate the spread of and remediate the harm done by the water incursion. Our technicians begin implementing the plan immediately. If electricity is unavailable our gas-operated pumps and truck-mounted water extractors use alternative power generation onboard.
 
Once the bulk of the water exits the wet spaces, our graduates of the IICRC Applied Structural Drying (ASD) course determine drying goals using baseline moisture levels measured during the initial assessment. We compare those numbers with levels we establish by using moisture sensors in unaffected spaces of your home. Air movers and heaters create an environment where wet building materials radiate moisture into the warmer, drier air as vapor. Evaporative and desiccant dehumidifiers positioned appropriately condense or absorb the water vapor for disposal.
 
Fire Damage
During the aftermath of fire damage to your Glendale dwelling, many resources are necessary to restore both the structure and contents. We often suggest a pack-out of household goods and personal possessions, tracking each item moved using our detailed Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS). Moving furnishings and other articles to our production facility allow our Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) to work unimpeded on the many tasks needed inside your home to abate a fire loss.
 
Availability of our temporary warehouse space is one of the reasons why SERVPRO can offer specialized cleaning, drying, disinfecting, and restoring of the packed-out items. Homeowners understandably fear much of their fire-damaged contents are ruined, destined for the trash. Our production technicians employ a broad range of techniques, often using innovative equipment like immersion and ultrasonic tanks for cleaning intricately detailed goods, freeze-drying systems for papers and photos, and industrial washers and dryers for fabrics and other soft items.
 
Meanwhile, on-site crew members evaluate the characteristics of the toxic soot residues in your house. Matching the types of soot to appropriate cleaning products, tools, and method is crucial to effective fire damage cleanup. We also address any odor concerns using a multi-step protocol. If thorough cleaning and disposal of debris do not eliminate smoky smells our expertise with advanced technologies including thermal foggers, ozone machines, or hydroxyl generators is why SERVPRO delivers deodorization success.  
 
Mold Remediation
Incomplete water removal or drying after a water loss can lead to mold damage in your Glendale home. Other causes of microbial growth can include high interior humidity and unnoticed water incursions into rarely inspected areas of your residence like attics and unfinished basements. Our experienced mold remediation technicians follow the protocol developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to remove active fungal colonies safely and effectively while limiting future infestation.
 
Containment of the spaces with mold damage during remediation is crucial. Our experience in using airlock barrier systems is why SERVPRO reliably seals off the work area during mechanical removal of the mold and any structural components heavily infested with the fungi’s hyphae. During the removal phase, we use HEPA-filtered vacuums to suction up any loose debris and negative pressure air scrubbers to filter and exhaust air-borne spores and other particles.
 
Remediation completes with an application of EPA-registered antimicrobial agents to inhibit fungal rebound. We also use an antimicrobial sealer to prepare the affected surfaces for the final restoration. Expect us to work with you to eliminate the source of moisture that accelerated the mold growth.

Storm Damage
Homes in Glendale endure storm damage during extreme weather patterns ranging from heavy rains to blizzards accompanied by howling winds and even tornadoes. Roofing and gutter systems fail, siding and windows peel and break, and record-breaking precipitation levels pour and seep inside. Overland flash flooding or sanitary sewer backups also force contaminated water into basements and crawl spaces.
 
Restoring a home after a significant storm and its damage moves through can be a complicated matter. SERVPRO's full-service approach from remediation to preparation provides a successful environment for the general contractor of your choice to complete the rebuilding. After appropriately disposing of flood waters followed by cleaning, disinfecting, and drying out spaces, our IICRC-trained crews are ready for a walk-through to ensure you are satisfied with the results. Our goal is to make you feel, "Like it never even happened."
