Water Damage Mitigation in Mt. Prospect, IL

(847) 558-7765

Water damage can be derived from numerous sources, causing it to be the most common type of property damage. These can include heavy rain and excessive humidity; however, incidents such as sewer backups and burst pipes can quickly cause extensive damage. When water is destructive to your building or home, ProTech Restoration is prepared to provide emergency water damage restoration and flood cleanup services in Mt. Prospect, IL.

We take water damage of all sizes seriously, inspecting the property completely for any additional signs of damage. The water will then be extracted, followed by the installation of our high-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers. Finally, we will use moisture detection meters to ensure that all layers of the floor and walls have been properly dried.

 

Preventing the Spread of Water Damage

As water damage can start small and grow quickly, porous materials will sustain greater amounts of damage than others. These include drywall, paint, fabrics, and wood. In addition, if they are not treated right away, the affected area will develop mold, running the risk of allergy and respiratory problems for everyone.

When called immediately to Mt. Prospect, IL,  ProTech Restoration will arrive right away to stop the damage from spreading. However, if there is mold present, we will have it removed with mold remediation services. With advanced drying equipment and cleaning products, you can be sure that the affected area(s) will be completely restored, giving you the peace of mind that your deserve.  Our technicians also coordinate with insurance providers to allow the claims process to run as smoothly as possible for you.

Sewage Backup Cleaning

As you may know, there are various forms of water damage, fresh water, gray water, and contaminated water. This is most commonly referred to as sewage water. When this occurs, it is essential that you avoid all contact due to the contaminants that pose a severe threat to the health of you and everyone on the property. As these contain feces, urine, and other byproducts, the damage must be restored by a professional technician.

ProTech Restoration will arrive quickly to Mt. Prospect, IL and secure the affected area, dispose of all contaminated porous materials, disinfect the remaining structure, and dry out the area.

Open Windows can Lead to Water Damage

Water damage in a household is often caused by plumbing fixtures and water-utilizing appliances. One potential source of water damage that is often overlooked is the windows in your home. Homeowners often open windows during warmer months to let in fresh air and regulate indoor temperatures, but this can unintentionally put your home at risk for water damage. Windows are commonly left open during spring, summer, and fall, even when residents are not present. This practice can lead to increased vulnerability to water damage during unexpected storms and rainfall. It is important to manage and monitor your windows to reduce the risk of water damage caused by rain and moisture intrusion, while also enjoying the benefits of ventilation and comfort.

  • Remember to shut all windows when you leave your home. You never know if it will rain later.
  • Close your windows as soon as you know it is going to rain
  • Wipe your window sill and window frame immediately if you notice it is wet after the rain
  • Clean any condensation from the window pane and frame.
  • Make sure your windows are sealed properly
  • Call a mold remediation professional if there is mold growth

Water Damage Repair Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need professional help for water damage restoration, or can I do it myself?
Depending on the severity and extent of the water damage, you can determine whether you can resolve it yourself. If it is a minor water damage that only requires simple dry out and ventilation, you can implement a DIY restoration process. However, most of the time, water damage is more substantial than what we can handle due to flood, sewage, etc. In these situations, it is best to contact a water damage restoration professional like ProTech Restoration to clean, dry, restore, repair, and reconstruct your house to its initial state.

How do you assess the extent of water damage in a property?
You can assess the water damage through the signs on the structural surface like water rings, sagging ceiling, bubbled walls, or obvious appearances like flood and sewage overflow. Water Damage Restoration experts like ProTech Restoration will use technical tools like digital moisture meters, etc. to accurately measure the moisture level and see the damages behind the walls and inside the property’s structure.

What safety precautions should be taken during the water damage restoration process?
The utmost important safety precaution that you need to take during the water damage restoration process is to turn off all the electricity on your property and avoid contact with standing water. Experienced water damage restoration technicians like ProTech Restoration will thoroughly assess the condition, and implement the restoration process with careful safety measures.

"Had a great experience working with Marshall when we had an emergency leak at my mom’s house. He immediately started working to salvage what we could. I felt like he absolutely understood the urgency, and treated my mom like his own! He and the rest of the team were super easy to work with and answered our (many) questions along the way. They were very transparent about the process which was extremely helpful as this was our first time with this kind of issue in 30+ years of owning the house. We so appreciate ProTech for aiding us during our time of need."

"My experience with ProTech was wonderful from the first visit thru the last. Ben did a great job of evaluating the work that needed to be done and explaining everything to me. Frank and Sergio were great to work with because they were pleasant AND they were so very careful about everything they did. All in all, I give the ProTech team an A+!"

"I had a pipe burst and subsequent leakage into my basement. At first I thought that we maybe stopped it in time since we could not see obvious damage but Marshall at ProTech said it would be a good idea to check it out anyway and came out within a couple of days. I’m so glad he did since there was more damage than we anticipated. Marshall explained the damage thoroughly using his imaging techniques and provided a quote within the day. Pricing was good and our insurance accepted the proposal immediately. The ProTech team was able to do the water damage mitigation about a week after the incident and on a Saturday no less. Everything was done super quickly and professionally. While I do not want to deal with any more water damage, the repairs using ProTech were painless. I would recommend this company and especially Marshall to anyone in the same situation."
