  • Professional water damage restoration companies begin by conducting a thorough assessment of the extent and source of damage. Thermal imaging or moisture detection equipment will be employed to detect hidden areas of moisture damage or mold growth that would not otherwise have been detectable, providing them with enough data to develop a plan to both eliminate damage and mitigate future risks.

  • After performing their assessment, the restoration team will use industrial pumps and vacuums to remove water from your property. They will use special tools to monitor any remaining moisture within affected areas. Any materials beyond repair and wastewater will be disposed of according to the guidelines laid out by Waukegan’s environmental agency.

  • Your property could still contain excess moisture even after water removal has taken place. Water damage restoration professionals utilize industrial dehumidifiers and dryers to ensure complete drying, which prevents mold spore formation - an integral step in returning it back to its original state.

  • Restoration teams will thoroughly clean any affected areas to eliminate mold growth and contaminants. This process typically includes surface cleaning and deep cleaning services, odor removal, and air quality improvements.
