Water damage can be caused by a wide range of factors from a major flood to a trickle from a leaking pipe. Most building materials within a home or building are absorbent which allows excess water to spread through them, leading to serious damage and mold growth. Building materials that absorb water may experience stains, warping, and buckling that can lead to severe structural damage. Materials and objects affected by excess moisture are also at a high risk for mold growth. If there is a problem with excess water on your property, it is best to react to the damage quickly and begin the restoration process.

The damage caused by excess water happens in stages and if you don’t react immediately, the damage will quickly become much worse. The building materials that absorb water will initially experience discoloration and warping but as the materials weaken, the risk of structural damage will increase. The damage will also spread further throughout your property as the water spreads through porous building materials. It is very important to call Rainbow International Restoration of South & West Suburbs as soon as possible to limit the spread of the damage.
Water Damage Restoration Process
Our technicians will immediately work to contain the spread of the water and assess the damage to form a remediation plan. We will dry the affected objects and materials with our proven Rapid Structural Drying method in which dehumidification equipment and air movers are used to extract and evaporate the moisture. This drying process can completely remove moisture from the affected materials and help prevent serious damage. After the remediation, we will test your property with moisture meters to make sure that all excess water has been discovered and removed.
In many cases of water damage, it may be difficult to tell if you should file an insurance claim for the damage. Our technicians can help you decide if filing a claim is in your best interest after an inspection of the damage. If you do decide to file an insurance claim, we can follow up with your insurance provider and bill them for the cost of the claim with our direct billing services.
