You don’t have to look too far to find photos of flooding in Sycamore, IL. Whether you’re talking about the floods of last summer or those from a few years before, it’s a recurring problem in these days of changing weather patterns across the country. When the rains come for hours or days at a time, there isn’t a lot you can do about it. When the rains are over and you find water damage in your basement or on the first floor of your home, there’s plenty you can do. The first step is to contact ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip. We began in Sycamore and we’re still your best solution for water damage repair.
Some things you should know about water in your basement:
- Don’t even think about going into a flooded room or level of your house unless you’re certain the electricity is turned off. You don’t want a flood disaster to turn into something worse.
- If your water disaster involves sewage backup, wear protective gear and know that you may be facing infectious illnesses if you ingest any of that water or let it reach an open cut.
- Know that flood damage restoration involves far more than simply draining and drying out your basement. You will have to guard against mold infestation and recurring odor problems.
- You can restore far more of the contents that you think you can.
If that list seems like something you don’t want to deal with on your own, let us help. We will handle water removal, dry out all involved areas, and remove damaged materials such as wallboard, non-restorable contents, furnishings, and other debris. We’ll also safely box and pack out furnishings and contents that can be restored, storing them in our climate controlled facility until they can be fully restored and returned to your home. That includes the restoration of appliances, art, antiques, electronics, photos, documents, and other valued objects.
