Flood and Water Damage Restoration

Commercial Flood and Water Damage Restoration

Business owners, risk managers, and property management professionals in Chicago turn to Rainbow Restoration Restoration to help their commercial properties recover from water damage. Sprinklers can go off, toilets can overflow, and frozen pipes can burst. No matter what the cause, the aftermath of a flooded building can be overwhelming.

Mass flooding can spread quickly throughout the building, causing safety concerns while damaging building components. Those who manage or operate out of commercial properties need a reliable and ethical service company that they can rely on in times of emergency.

  • When a water loss occurs, we understand that businesses are interrupted, there is an inconvenience to the tenants, and safety is always a concern. Therefore, you require immediate response to keep your business open, your facility running at full speed, and your building occupants safe.

    Many companies have a few pieces of drying equipment and in-house maintenance staff to clean up minor water losses. For projects outside the scope of work that they are capable of handling, turn to the certified restoration professionals at Rainbow Restoration.

  • Rainbow Restoration's service professionals will quickly respond to assess the situation, perform water extraction, and stabilize the environment while the source is being addressed. We will document the damage in 3D by scanning the environment that will be shared with our point of contact.

    Once the scope of work has been approved, and the source has been fixed, we can begin drying out the building and perform any necessary demolition. Our service professionals meticulously document our efforts throughout the project to help protect the stakeholder's liability. Team members will maintain communication so that our point of contact is made aware of the next steps, and we will also provide the turnaround time for project completion.

    Rainbow Restoration's team consists of certified master restorers who have been helping restore commercial properties throughout Chicagoland since 2007. Not only have we restored buildings within our community, but we have also deployed to the East Coast to assist in restoring commercial properties that have suffered hurricane damage. Our service professionals can coordinate all-size projects, from large losses to small losses. No matter the size of the project, all parties involved receive personalized attention from our Rainbow team.

Our Commercial Water Damage Cleanup and Restoration Process


The first step to addressing water damage is to determine the cause. Most commercial water damage can be traced back to:

  • Storm damage and natural disasters
  • Ice dams and leaky roofs
  • Faulty plumbing/appliance
  • Machinery and pump failures
  • Storm drain backup
  • Fire suppression or sprinkler heads

Once the source of the damage has been determined, it’s time to get to work.

Cleaning up commercial water damage is a multi-step process that may include:

  • Securing the property (Board up, temporary fencing, etc.)
  • Adding temporary power
  • Removing excess water
  • Contents pack-out and contents cleaning
  • Rapid structural drying
  • Mold Remediation
  • Reconstruction (if necessary)

Our IICRC-certified technicians are trained in the latest techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to safely remediate water damage. Our teams also provide full-service reconstruction, meaning you don’t need to hire an additional third-party contractor to see your project to completion.

    I highly recommend Rainbow Restoration! They did an excellent job and were able to fit us in right after I called and their rates were by far the best I found. They take great pride in their work and that was apparent on the job they did.
