Home and flood restoration reduces damage and loss

After a disaster such as a flood or fire that damages or destroys your property you will need the services of a home restoration company. A Emergency offers disaster recovery services in Chicago, Niles, Morton Grove, Skokie and Lincolnwood and can provide the flood restoration or fire restoration you might need.

Home restoration begins with a site inspection and a plan. If there is a great deal of damage your property may need to be secured with board ups, temporary fencing, roof tarps and so on. Flood restoration is a very specific type of home restoration that you will need when you find parts of your property under water.

Flooding can occur from a variety of sources such as heavy rains, rivers that burst their banks to domestic problems such as a broken pipe or a tap that was left open. When flooding occurs you need to act quickly. Water extraction should take place as soon as possible. A professional home restoration team will use advanced equipment to extract the water and dry affected areas, furniture and equipment.

There are some things you can to try and minimize the damage whilst your wait for the home restoration team to arrive. If water is from a domestic source, you can try and stop it at the source. It is important to switch off your electricity supply and remove electrical devices. You can try to prevent water contact with certain items or furnishing in your home for example you could pin-up curtains and remove as many items as possible.

The flood restoration team will arrive with specialized extraction and drying equipment. Professional extraction and drying methods will reduce damage and prevent potential microbial growth and the formation of mold.

Once everything is dry and sanitized the home restoration team will put things back in their proper places.
