Massive Leak Causes Extensive Water Damage to Bucktown Chicago Home

Water damage resulting from plumbing leaks can be significantly disruptive. That’s why, when we received a call from Rescue Plumbing, our sister company, about a water damage incident in the Bucktown neighborhood our specialized technicians were quick to address the problem!

A Category 2 source leak refers to a type of water damage that can occur due to a malfunction or failure in the plumbing system. Such instances can be categorized as “gray water” leaks where the water involved may contain some level of contaminants. This calls for quick and professional intervention to restore your home!

Category 1

Clean Water

  • Not contaminated
  • No immediate health risks
  • Can turn to Category 2 if left untreated due to bacterial growth
  • Sources: broken water supply line or an overflowing sink

Category 2

Grey Water

  • Contains significant levels of contaminants
  • Causes discomfort or illness if ingested or exposed to the skin
  • Sources: dishwasher or washing machine overflows, toilet overflows with urine (no feces), and sump pump failures

Black Water

  • Most dangerous and contaminated

The homeowner was concerned as the disruption was affecting their life and the lives of their guests staying in the room.

Ensuring a Safe and Sanitized Environment

We prepared the property by safely removing any affected contents and setting up dust reduction chambers before beginning the restoration job. Safety is key when deconstructing walls, ceilings, and baseboards to remove any affected areas when preparing them for drying.

Our integrity and commitment to customer satisfaction ensured the property was dried out in four days. The homeowner was thrilled with the timely completion of the restoration job! To assure our customers receive the best restoration services, we installed air movers and dehumidifiers to effectively dry the area and prevent further structural damage and risk of mold growth.
