Does SERVPRO Remove Water from Carpets, Hardwood Floors, and Inside Walls in Chicago?

Leaking plumbing can quickly cover floors with water inside Chicago homes. Water covers hardwood floors and seeps between the hardwood planks to the subfloor, causing cupping, warping, and swelling. Carpets soak up water like a sponge, soaking the carpet, the underpad, and the subfloor. Leaks inside walls fill the spaces between the studs or underneath cupboards made of compressed wood chips. Unless the water can be removed quickly, a great deal of secondary damage may occur.

SERVPRO provides water cleanup services in Chicago and the surrounding areas. We respond to your home or business within four hours of your call, assess the situation, and immediately deploy equipment and team members to address the problem.

We use weighted water extractors to remove water from carpets and underpads. In some situations, lifting the carpet to dry the subfloor may be necessary, using air movers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture.

Hardwood floor drying mats are placed on hardwood floors to remove water between the planks and the subfloor. A vacuum sucks the moisture from the floor, and then dry air and dehumidifiers are used to dry the floor further.

The water behind drywall or inside cavities under cupboards is removed by drilling access holes and inserting vacuum wands to remove water. Dry air is blown into the cavities using specialized drying equipment and dehumidifiers. The fast action by the client making a call to SERVPRO and our response can significantly reduce secondary damage and opportunities for mold colonies to grow.
