Expert Property Restoration Services

We set up our air movers and dehumidifiers in the affected areas, they are used together to create an efficient drying system. Air movers evaporate moisture from surfaces, while dehumidifiers remove the moisture from the air, ensuring a thorough and speedy drying process.

This minimizes the risk of secondary damage, such as rotting materials, and helps prevent mold growth, which can pose significant health risks.

Rescue Restoration’s first project demonstrated our ability to effectively address water damage issues in a timely manner, ensuring the safety and well-being of our clients and their families. We provide professional water damage restoration services to residential and commercial clients in Evanston IL and the Chicagoland area!
