SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South has drying equipment and the restoration experience to help recover from water damage

When water damages your home it can affect walls, furniture and most definitely the flooring.  In some cases, the flooring has to be fully removed but not always.  Using a combination of equipment and experience, SERVPRO may be able to save floors using various techniques and equipment.  In some instances we don’t have to pull out wood floors and turn your home into a construction zone.  If possible, we’ll use equipment to dry out floors in a matter of days, saving the original flooring, and saving you the experience of a remodel in your home.

Depending on the situation, your local SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South may have the equipment perfectly suited to provide a quick recovery from a water overflow, flood or other form of water damage.  Many types of equipment are stored in our warehouse to provide drying, cleaning and recovery, all meant to help recover quickly and return your home back to normal.

Water in the House: SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South helps when you have water trouble in your home or office

6/13/2018 (Permalink)

If you have standing water, flood damage, or other water issues in your home or office, SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South can help.

Water damage is a common occurrence in homes and buildings.  You may experience an event with water from a heavy rain, flooding in the area, a broken sprinkler head, or even from an over-flowing toilet.  Whatever the cause of the water problem, SERVPRO can help.  Water damage is not to be taken lightly, as water can cause damage to flooring, wood trim, drywall and other parts of a structure. When water is standing in a basement, rooms, or even in a bathroom, it seeps into crevices and travels under flooring, trim and baseboards.  If not properly dried, that water can create irreparable damage, even cause mold.  Of course, the amount of water needs to be something beyond a common spill, although even a small, steady leak that is not stopped and dried can create big problems.

When to contact SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South for water damage repairs and drying:

  • Standing water in the basement
  • Flood water has entered the house or building
  • Visible damage to a window, door or walls, with water pooling in areas
  • Roof damage that has allowed wind driven rain to enter the structure
  • Sewer water or other plumbing backup
  • A long-term leak has been discovered

If there is a question of whether water can be damaging your home or building, SERVPRO professionals are trained at identifying and surveying the damage any water may have created.  Most importantly, we can remove the water and clean, dry, and professionally repair water damage.

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Plainfield/Naperville South basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
