Residential and Commerical Water Damage Restoration

(815) 569-0702

While it is extremely important to prevent water damage, the majority of homeowners may not think that they are at risk. Unfortunately, there are many different sources that can contribute to water leaks and damage. It may start out small at first; however, it can go unnoticed until a pool of water is then discovered in the basement or crawlspace of a home. Water damage can also occur if the moisture levels on your property are particularly high. When this happens, beads of water can be soaked up by porous materials, such as drywall, compromising its structure. If not treated right away, it can also develop mold growth as bacteria begin to gather to the affected area. However, Nu-Gen Cleaning & Restoration provides 24/7 water damage repair services in Mundelein, IL. Using advanced equipment and products, our experienced technicians will extract all excess water in addition to treating mold growth for specific areas. We will also secure areas that are at risk for future water and mold damage.

I had a pipe freeze and burst at my home in the very early hours of Christmas Eve, around midnight. The water damaged my kitchen and went into my basement as well. I called Nu-Gen around 2:00am and Olga answered the phone and set up an appointment for me for the same day, between 8:30-9:30. After calling my insurance company, they said they would send out their own mitigation service so I cancelled my appointment with Nu-Gen. Well, the service that my insurance company contracted never showed up, but to my surprise Olga called me that afternoon to check on things and make sure I was okay. I was incredibly grateful for her checking on me because my insurance company failed me at that point. Later that afternoon Moises, the project manager, came out to assess the situation. They immediately set up the mitigation process and during the next couple of weeks, Moises - and his wonderful crew - Jose and Joey, were out several times to check on the progress of the drying and mitigation process. I am forever grateful for Nu-Gen's help and guidance throughout this entire process. I've recommended their services to my insurance company as well so that they could now have a reliable mitigation service to use in the area and I also expect to use Nu-Gen for the reconstruction work as well.

Jose and Leti were wonderful, a third gentleman came to assist, I didn't get his name but they worked well together to solve a tricky dryer vent issue. After spending over an hour cleaning a vent that was no longer in use from second floor( unbeknownst to all of us) we learned previous owners rerouted out the roof. Not once did they act like they were annoyed by this discovery. Very professional and very friendly. I cannot recommend them enough. Great Job Nu-Gen.
