Small Leaks Can Lead to Big Disasters

It’s important to address water damage issues as soon as possible. Timely attention to small leaks is crucial, as they have the potential to escalate into significant issues. If left untreated, any kind of water damage can quickly and drastically ruin residential and commercial property.

However, when addressed early enough by trained restoration professionals like Rescue Restoration, leaks can be stopped before they get worse. We also offer fire restoration services in Chicago and mold remediation, including the surrounding suburbs such as Elk Grove Village.

Emergency Services Needed in Two Bedroom Units

Our team was urgently dispatched by our sister company, Rescue Plumbing, to address a severe leak in two residences in East Village, Chicago. The customer was worried about the leak affecting two young children, one a newborn in a third-floor unit and the other a 4-year-old in a second-floor unit.

Water Leak from AC Drain Line and Shower Clog

When the team arrived, they discovered the leak coming from an AC drain line and a shower clog. Immediate action was needed as the situation escalated from a Category 2 to a Category 3 loss, indicating potential health risks to the residents due to the long-standing wet material.

Our restoration team launched into action after receiving authorization, targeting the affected areas in the third and second-floor units and began the water removal process.

24/7 Mold Remediation

The team performed a standard structural drying process to eliminate any potential health hazards associated with a Category 3 loss.

Using air scrubbers, air movers and dehumidifiers ensured efficient structural drying to prevent further water damage and potential mold growth. The bedroom on the third floor was completely dried out within a span of three days, while the bedroom on the second floor took four days to dry out.

With a focus on safety and efficiency, we restored both rooms to their original state, ensuring the areas are safe and giving the families a peace of mind. The completion of this project underscores our commitment to providing timely and effective water damage restoration services, even in challenging residential scenarios.
