SERVPRO can extract the water out of your Bloomingdale closet and restore it like new

One of the most frequently seen reasons for water in a closet due to floodwater comes from a slab leak around the edge of the Bloomingdale property. This is a severe structural issue and will continue to allow water into the loss area with every rain until fixed. SERVPRO technicians can extract the water and perform temporary measures that can keep additional water from entering the closet until the homeowner can get the needed repairs done.

How Can I Avoid Musty Water Odors From Flood Damage in a Closet?

Flood damage brings extra things to your Bloomingdale home that regular water loss from a pipe burst or appliance malfunction does not such as:
    •    Pungent odor   
    •    Potential contaminants  
    •    Staining  
    •    Formation of an environment conducive to mold growth

In a small space such as a closet, the water cleanup needs to happen quickly as the longer it remains on-site, the more damage it does. SERVPRO technicians can ascertain in short order if they need to unload the items within the closet to a safe around or if the small space can get extracted and dried with the pieces in place. In cases where a pack-out gets deemed necessary, the techs note the placement of each article, so when the techs complete the restoration services, the items can get brought in and placed where they were taken from.

If the need for any odor control exists after drying, the techs may use equipment such as a thermal fogger if there are no clothing items in the closet or a hydroxyl generator, which is safe for use around people, pets, plants, and closet contents. We often can place deodorizing pellets to help mask simple odors during the restoration process.

The cleanup of flood damage needs to happen as soon as possible. Call SERVPRO of Carol Stream / East Bloomingdale at (630) 830-6236; the certified technicians are available 24/7 to assist local property owners with any size floodwater situation.
