Our 7-Step Storm Damage Cleanup Process for Chicago & Suburbs

1. Immediate Damage Inspection

storm damage cleanup services chicagoWe start with an inspection of your storm-damaged home or business. Our team secures doors and entryways, boards up broken windows, and tarp the roof.

We make sure your property is safe from the weather and potential vandalism.

2. Assessment and Cleanup Plan

Based on our inspection, we assess overall damages and outline a plan for cleanup and restoration.

We share the details with you, including our proposed schedule for job completion. If you have any questions, we listen to your concerns and explain what to expect.

3. Flood Water Extraction

Using powerful truck-mounted extraction systems, we pump out flooded crawlspaces and basements.

Our technicians remove residual water from floors with specialized vacuuming tools. We restore interior air quality by running desiccant dehumidifiers.

4. Mitigation and Pack-Out

Our teams continue to mitigate the damage by clearing out general debris. As we work, we double-check the stability of walls, floors, and ceilings.

We also identify salvageable contents and soft goods for pack-out to our secure cleaning and storage facilities.

5. Advanced Structural Drying

Our mitigation process includes deep structural drying throughout storm-damaged interiors.

We set up industrial-grade floor drying systems, aerodynamic axial fans, and centrifugal air movers. Progress is carefully monitored with thermal-imaging cameras and moisture sensors.

6. Tear-Out and Pre-Restoration Cleanup

This step clears the way for final restoration. We tear out ruined walls, floors, and ceilings. Everything is hauled away for off-site disposal.

Our teams scrub, sanitize, and deodorize remaining surfaces and interiors with specially formulated cleaning agents. We take care of mold with industry-certified removal and remediation techniques.

7. Expert Structural Damage Restoration

We finish up with detailed structural damage restoration that returns your property to its pre-storm condition. Our technicians repair, replace, and rebuild interiors with professional expertise.

When we’re done, we ask you to inspect our work. We don’t consider the job complete until we have your final approval.
