Water Damage Restoration


Mold Removal Chicago Water Damage Restoration Chicago The goal of the Water damage restoration process is to transform an abnormally wet, potentially damaged structure into an environment of equal or better appearance and cleanliness than before the intrusion occurred, and to do so in the most economical and efficient means possible.

Water affects materials indirectly. Excessive moisture leads to elevated humidity. Many building materials will absorb excess water vapor and suffer damage, especially when the air in the structure is allowed to remain above 60% relative humidity.

Water Damage Drying


Mold Removal Chicago Water Damage Restoration Chicago The first step to drying a structure is extraction, which may include removal of wet materials, and then evaporation. The extraction phase removes most of the liquid Water and then evaporation removes the remaining liquid Water and “draws” the moisture out of wet materials (drywall, plywood, framing lumber, etc.).

The drying process is optimized by first doing a good extraction to remove as much of the liquid Water as possible and then using Psychrometry to set up a frying system that maximizes drying efficiency. Psychometric measurements include the relative humidity and dry bulb temperature to determine the humidity ration (grains per pound) and the vapor pressure. From this, we can then determine what drying equipment should be employed to maximize the drying process.

Sewage Removal


Mold Removal Chicago Water Damage Restoration Chicago In performing sewage remediation work, the greatest risk is that of ingestion, which a full face respirator helps prevent. Attempts to salvage sewage contaminated semi-porous and highly porous materials such as wall to wall carpet can create a health risk by liberating infectious agents.

The S500 specifically states that carpet and cushions contaminated with Category 3 Water should be removed and disposed of properly. Unless local regulations specify otherwise, recovered sewage and rinse Water should be discharged into the sanitary sewer system or municipal waste Water treatment facility.

Sewage Removal

Flood Cleanup


Mold Removal Chicago Water Damage Restoration Chicago Flooding occurs when rising Water overflows the natural boundaries of bodies of water, such as rivers and streams, and flows across the ground picking up all kinds of contamination. The Water can be contaminated with soil bacteria, decaying insects, animal droppings, oils and fluids from roadways, and fertilizers and pesticides from fields or gardens.

Standing water on the inside of a basement or crawlspace exerts pressure on the walls and/or foundation of the structure. If the Water table of the surrounding ground has risen along with the interior water, equal pressure is pushing toward the inside of the structure.

Flood Cleanup

Water Saturation


Water saturation affects a building in three ways:

Mold Removal Chicago Water Damage Restoration Chicago 1. Water causes direct damage to materials. Wallboard disintegrates; wood can swell, warp, or rot; electrical parts can short out, malfunction, and cause fires or shock.

2. Mud, silt, and unknown contaminants in the water get everything dirty and are unhealthy. Floodwater is more damaging than rainwater.

3. Dampness promotes the growth of moisture related Mold, mildew, and fungus that leads to dry rot.
