Water Emergency 

When you experience a water loss, like a flood or burst pipe, it's important to first determine what  the source of the water is. Shut off the main water valve, if the source of the water is due to a pipe. An expert, like SERVPRO of Norridge/Harwood Heights, can begin to survey any damage and write an estimate that would list the expected costs of water extraction and drying procedures. 

The Cleanup Process 

First thing you can expect your restoration company, like SERVPRO of Norridge/Harwood Heights, to do is remove any standing water. Our crew can then determine if there is any areas that could hold any trapped water and identify any equipment that would help promote a quick and thorough drying process. 

Another important thing to note is that materials, such as drywall and wood, can show no visible signs of water retention, but can still have water under the surface layer. SERVPRO of Norridge/Harwood Heights uses special equipment, such as dehumidifiers and air movers that can completely dry any wet or damp areas. We monitor these areas with moisture meters to ensure everything is drying as it should. 

Water damage can be stressful. To make it less stressful, you should put your trust in a company that can accurately handle your water damage, like SERVPRO of Norridge/Harwood Heights.
