Water Mitigation in Joliet, IL

Safety is the highest priority, especially when we are first on the scene to assess the situation. Electricity and gas supplies need to be turned off, and everyone needs to be aware of where and how they walk on different surfaces as some could be quite slippery with a coating of water. Videos and pictures are important to describe and document the extent of the damage, and working with your insurance company they will also want to see these images for their records when they begin to cut checks for the water damage clean up.

Water mitigation starts with the extraction of standing water as well as water soaked into carpeting and other surfaces. Once the standing water is removed, we can bring in our large commercial fans to help dry out things. This is when we will also begin removing drywall, flooring, as well as furniture, and other things, and determine what can be salvaged/saved and what needs to be replaced.
