Water damage is a common problem that may not seem like an emergency at first, but it can become an emergency if you do not take immediate action. Excess water or moisture can get into your home or building from flooding, heavy rain, leaks, pipe bursts, and sewage backups. Once the water gets inside, it spreads throughout the building through porous building materials which can result in structural damage or mold growth. ServiceMaster Kwik Restore provides water damage restoration services to stop the water from spreading and remove it from the affected materials. We are serving Northern IL and Southern WI, including Lake, McHenry and Kane County in IL and Racine, Kenosha, Milwaukee County in WI. We use the best drying and dehumidification equipment available to extract all water or moisture and repair the resulting damage.
You should never ignore water damage in your home or building because doing so will only lead to bigger and more expensive problems. As water gets absorbed into porous building materials like wood, drywall, flooring, and insulation, it weakens these materials which can cause warping, buckling, or severe structural damage. The other major issue with water damage is that it creates conditions favorable for mold growth. The appearance of mold will not only cause even more structural damage, but also introduce serious health risks into the situation.
The technicians of ServiceMaster Kwik Restore provide effective water damage restoration services that follow the IICRC S-500 guidelines. We will immediately contain the damage to stop the water from spreading and set up our dehumidification and drying equipment to treat the affected materials. We can also provide anti-microbial applications and corrosion control if needed.
