Water Damage Restoration in Chicago, IL
Water damage can be caused by any number of reasons, such as burst pipes, toilet or dishwasher overflows, and much more. Damage resulting from water should be addressed immediately, or it may cause secondary damage to your property.
Water damage occurs in a structure when:
- There is flooding inside of the structure
- Appliances cause a water leak
- Sinks, tubs, washing machines, and toilets overflow
- Pipes burst
- Storms cause flooding
- There is a backup and overflow of sewage
- Water floods into a basement due to a sump pump malfunction
- There is poor draining, which causes water to seep into the basement
- Leaking roof
- Cracks in the foundation that allow water to seep
Category 3 water is the biggest health hazard of all the categories. It is unsafe, and should not be consumed or even touched. It is also referred to as black water. This type of water is usually the product of sewage leaks, but it can also be caused by chemicals, such as fertilizer or animal feces that come from the ground around the building.
While category 1 is the safest, it can become category 2 after just 48 hours of sitting. The same goes for category 2 water turning into category 3. The longer it is left alone, the more dangerous it can get.
Water Removal Methods
At this point, BMS CAT can get to work on our water damage repair strategy. Usually it is a systemic, step-by-step plan that ensures that no steps are missed. We use industrial strength equipment to make sure that water is removed completely from any Chicago property or building that is affected. We will move through each room to make sure that all standing water is gone before proceeding to the next step.
That next step is making sure that the building is completely dry. Once the standing water is removed, it is then time to dry the surfaces. This involves using air movers, dehumidifiers, and even towels to complete the process. We will take off baseboards to make sure that there is no hidden water behind them, and even drill holes into drywall if need be. We take it one room at a time, and make sure that a room is completely dry before moving on to the next.
Chicago Water Damage Repair
With BMS CAT, we do not consider our water damage repair job complete until every single affected room is completely dried. We take periodic readings to test the moisture content of all of our Chicago job sites to check our progress. Our goal is to make sure that our clients are 100% satisfied that the space is dry.
Even a Little Water Can Cause Big Problems
You might think that a tiny flood is no big deal, but it definitely can be. Mold thrives in moisture, and humid areas with high temperatures. It can cause very dangerous health issues. If you already have health issues, such as asthma, then it can make them even worse. The experts at BMS CAT understand that mold and other bacteria and contaminants are serious problems that must be dealt with quickly and effectively.
