Apartment Flood Cleanup by SERVPRO® Professionals

As a resident of an apartment building, you might worry about flood damage. Water causes significant harm to your property and disrupts your life. When disasters strike, however, you can no longer help your residence how you would like. Whether filing an insurance claim or not, intervention in a flood-damaged recovery process can be unsafe and make matters worse.

Flood damage in Downtown Chicago apartments is typical, especially during the rainy season. Professional restorers like our SERVPRO team are often called upon to remedy the situation and restore the apartment to its original state.

Understanding Our Process in a Stressful Time

Step 1: Where is the floodwater coming from?

The first step in the restoration process is to identify the source of the flood damage. This step can be done by inspecting the affected areas and determining where the water comes from. Next is to stop the water flow by fixing the leak or repairing the damaged pipe. We inspect the affected areas for signs of mold, mildew, and other damage that may have occurred due to the flood.

Step 2: Effective Drying and Recovery

The restoration process can begin after drying out the affected areas using state-of-the-art equipment such as dehumidifiers and air movers to remove moisture. We replace damaged materials, such as drywall, flooring, and insulation. Effective containment and cleanup prevent water from spreading to adjacent apartment units.

Step 3: Repairing the Damage

We have trusted contractors to complete build-back services for an apartment building. Multiple-unit damage hones the skills of our team members as we discover and overcome the structural challenges to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Downtown Chicago apartments can quickly suffer flood damage, but SERVPRO of Carol Stream / East Bloomingdale is here to help when needed. Call us immediately to begin the mitigation process at (630) 830-6236.
