What is disaster restoration? We’re not necessarily talking about a tornado or massive flooding disaster due to the overflowing of a local river. A friend of ours recently heard an unusual hissing sound in her home. A frozen pipe in the garage had ruptured and caused a backup of water into the basement. She found water spurting through the drywall in her laundry room. A quick turn of a main valve changed a potential flood disaster into an hour of mopping and drying out.
What if no one had been home? What if that had been your home in DeKalb, IL? Whether it’s water damage restoration, fire and smoke damage restoration, or high wind damage, disaster restoration in DeKalb is best left to the experts at ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip. It doesn’t take much of an incident to become a full-blown home disaster for you and your family. The scenario of a pipe leaking or breaking when people aren’t home is a common example. The running bathtub faucet with a blocked drain is another instance. Something as simple as a washcloth blocking the overflow drain can translate into major flood damage.
To answer our question about disaster restoration, it means restoring the structure and its contents to the same, or better shape, than it was in before the disaster struck.
