Excess water in your home or business may seem like a simple problem with an easy answer; wipe it up and it’s fine. You may think a small amount will evaporate on its own, but even a small amount can lead to big trouble. Water is the leading cause of damage because it comes from so many different sources – leaking pipes, broken windows, and overflowing sinks are only a few ways excess water can enter a building and destroy property. Water is absorbed by porous materials like wood, fabric, and insulation and spreads further through the building, causing damage along the way. This damage will be permanent without prompt mitigation. Even worse, mold growth begins within 48 hours and causes more damage. ServiceMaster by Metzler provides emergency water damage restoration and flood cleanup services to residential and commercial customers in Prospect Heights, IL and the surrounding areas. Our highly qualified technicians remove excess water and restore the contents of the building before the damage becomes permanent and mold growth begins. We respond within 1 hour of your call to contain the water and stop the spread of the damage. Our state-of-the-art equipment dries and dehumidifies your home and contents, including delicate items like clothing and electronics.
Fires can rapidly cause a lot damage, but the danger isn’t over once the flames are out. Corrosive byproducts created by fires like soot and even the firefighting chemicals can tarnish and etch household surfaces. Smoke from a fire has a thick, unpleasant smell that won’t go away with time. Unless remediation begins quickly, this damage will become permanent. ServiceMaster by Metzler delivers comprehensive fire and smoke damage restoration services to homes and businesses in Prospect Heights, IL and surrounding areas. We restore damaged items and rebuild ruined structural elements quickly, so you can get back to your life before the fire.
When the property is infected with mold, the spores can get everywhere and it can be difficult to have them removed. They feed from common household and building materials like wood, drywall, and paper as they only require one moisture source to grow. That’s why mold growth begins quickly after a water leak. Mold isn’t just ugly; it causes damage to your home or business and its contents, as well as making allergies worse and causing health problems for everyone. But ServiceMaster by Metzler provides comprehensive mold removal services to residential and commercial customers in Prospect Heights, IL and surrounding areas. We use the most effective drying and dehumidification equipment available to remove excess water and moisture, then restore and repair all damage incurred by the building materials.
Hoarding isn’t as simple as refusing to clean, or having poor housekeeping skills. These individuals have a condition based in anxiety that causes them to collect items, often ones that don’t have value, like old mail, clothing, or newspapers. These items can accumulate to the point of blocking access to rooms in the house, providing homes for rodents, insects, and even mold. A blocked doorway can be dangerous during a fire while these piles can collapse and cause injuries. ServiceMaster by Metzler provides compassionate hoarding cleaning services for residents in Prospect Heights, IL and surrounding areas. We realize this is a difficult situation, which is why we work with the family and the individual to create a cleaning and decluttering plan to address the situation. We will then clean and restore the home under the direction of the affected individual, being careful not to dispose of any contents without their approval.
When people think of disaster restoration, they often think of restoring structural elements and furnishings, such as walls and roofs.
