So when you are dealing with water damage restoration problems in your home it can be quite expensive. That is why you should call us. We at 2nd Chance Water Restoration pride ourselves on giving our customers a better deal than our competition. We can bill through insurance just like any reputable company and we also use Xactimate. Xactimate is the standard pricing structure for the industry which also allows us to know what our competition will charge or attempt to charge you. Franchise companies typically can only discount fifteen percent because of franchise rules. That encourages the majority of the rest of our competition to not discount more than fifteen percent on any Chicago water removal jobs. We often will discount twenty five to fifty percent of the job depending on the job. That is a huge savings on cost but not a drop off in service as we will do the job the way it needs to be done regardless of the bill. That kind of service habits is exactly why 2nd Chance has such a sparkling reputation in the water damage restoration industry.

We have been cleaning Water Removal and Water Damage Restoration in the Chicago area for years but we also occasionally travel to other parts of the country when there is flooding from hurricanes or other natural storms. Recently we traveled to South Carolina to help the people of Columbia after the recent hurricane that just rolled by. Even though the hurricane did not make landfall it still led to a lot of rain which led to extensive flooding all over the state. There was streets where the water damage was so extensive that many streets were completely washed away. It was not just homes with flooding in the basements that needed water removal. There was churches and hospitals that were ravaged by the storm water. Chicago water damage can be some devastating stuff but it does not compare to sinkholes and alligators. That is right! On this storm there was an alligator in a basement. I have never gone to a Chicago water removal job and seen an alligator, let alone a twelve foot one. Sinkholes also are uncommon to Chicago because there is a different kind of soil. In Chicago we have clay soil and in South Carolina the soil is more sandy. The clay will hold the water longer so it is more common to need water removal in areas with clay soil such as Chicago.
All in all it was a successful trip as we were able to use our skills at water removal to help South Carolina to recover from all the flooding that occurred. The food in Chicago is completely better than the food down south. Chicago is known for it’s food for good reason as it is not even close between the two states. Chicago pizza versus chain pizza is not a fair contest. You do not want to be on a water removal job with hunger pains so you have to make due.
