Water Damage Restoration – Commercial

Have your business operations been interrupted by flooding or other water damage? Do you need emergency water extraction and cleanup?

American Fire & Water Restoration is a certified, full-service water-damage-restoration company that can help. We handle all types of commercial water damage cleanup and restoration, and we’ll do whatever it takes to get you back in business as quickly as possible.

Water damage can occur for many reasons – from burst pipes, sewage system backups, faulty HVAC equipment, plumbing leaks, broken appliances, storm flooding, and more. Regardless of the type of water damage you’re experiencing, your first step should be to call for professional help to address the problem as quickly as possible.

The longer water stands, the more it seeps into anything it comes into contact with – carpeting and flooring, furniture and other furnishings, equipment and building contents, and walls and other structural components. And, if the water is not fully extracted and the area properly dried and cleaned, it may be susceptible to an infestation from mold, which can make matters even worse by seriously affecting the health of employees and visitors to your business.

Flooding and water damage happen without warning. For that reason, American Fire & Water Restoration is available to take your emergency call 24/7. We serve the areas of Lake, McHenry, and north Cook Counties in Illinois, and southern Kenosha County in Wisconsin, and bring more than 25 years of experience to every job we handle. Our technicians are trained and certified, so you know the job will be done right and to your full satisfaction.

American Fire & Water Restoration’s Commercial Water Damage Cleanup Process

We adhere to a meticulous step-by-step process to ensure every bit of water is removed and your business restored to its pre-water-damage condition.

  1. Perform preliminary damage assessment – We perform a full assessment of the property to determine the extent of water damage. This includes locating the source of water entry and taking interim steps to stop any more water from entering.
  2. Identify the type of floodwater – We categorize the flood water on your property according to the water source and the potential levels of contaminants it might contain. For example, water from a sewer line backup is categorized differently from water that enters from an interior burst pipe.
  3. Identify the extent of water damage – We document the extent of water damage by examining the amount of standing water and how much dampness is present. This involves full inspection of the area that has been flooded—basement, floors, carpets, walls, insulation, etc. We also closely examine surfaces such as brick, concrete, and hardwood that require a more specialized drying process.
  4. Extract the water – Water removal is efficient with our state-of-the-art equipment that extracts standing water directly to our trucks. We also employ specialized moisture-detection equipment to remove water from other areas where dampness is not readily apparent.
  5. Removal and cleanup of building contents – We properly dispose of items that were destroyed or contaminated by the water damage. Salvageable items are inventoried and, if necessary, removed from the premises for cleaning and storage.
  6. Dry out of the property and structure – We utilize industry-grade air movers and specialty drying equipment to thoroughly dry all water-damaged areas and thereby mitigate the potential for mold.
  7. Contents and materials cleaning – We use safe, approved products to clean, decontaminate, sanitize, and deodorize the entire affected area, including the HVAC system so airborne contaminants and mold spores are eliminated.
  8. Restoration and renovation of structural damage – We provide full renovation services for any structural part of your commercial property that was damaged or destroyed as a result of the water damage, and ensure your building is restored to its pre-water-damage condition – or better – and is safe for occupants.

American Fire & Water Restoration has the expertise and experience to handle your water emergency safely, efficiently, and thoroughly. And, our prompt water removal and property restoration help minimize the damage and the costs involved, and ultimately the overall impact to your business operations, your employees, and your customers.
