What do floods, fires, mold, wind, and ice have in common? They are all events capable of causing significant damage to your home, including to both the structure and everything inside it. In fact, rarely does a property experience a fire or flood and the contents and structural elements inside the building escape without some degree of damage as a result. Once a fire is put out, or flooding subsided, or ice blockage broke up, the aftermath that awaits a homeowner in terms of damage to building contents and personal belongings can be great indeed.

I recently had the unfortunate experience of a flooded basement. Lucky for me I called Jerry and had him and his crew at my house quickly. Moving everything we’ve accumulated over the years in the basement is not easy work, but his guys did it cheerfully, respectfully and quickly.…Ronda L - Lake Zurich, IL
Jerry and his crew arrived shortly after our call and immediately addressed our water damage. I was impressed with their professionalism. Jerry took control of the project and I know we were in good hands. Thanks Jerry!Russ
