Illinois Flooding - Water Damage Cleanup

Today's torrential downpours soaked everyone here in Illinois, Wisconsin and northern Indiana. Up to 6 inches hit the Chicagoland area and flash flooding became an issue within an hour of rainfall.  The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning to counties of Lake, Cook, DuPage, Mchenry, and Kane. Here at ServiceMaster DAK, we understand the severity of water and flood damage and will respond to emergencies in any commercial or residential properties.

Water Damage and Flood Damage

In flooding, water typically spreads and flows through the path of least resistance, running through floors, between walls and ceilings, gravitating down to lowest levels. Porous materials such as wood, drywall, insulation, carpet and other building materials will soak up the water which will then soak upwards. The resulting effects can include discoloration, swelling, broken adhesive bonds, delamination, and with the lack of water restoration services, mold. the more time that elapses without proper water damage cleanup, the more sever the damage. Damage from water and bacteria growth can begin within hours.
