Commercial water restoration work in New Trier
We got a call for commercial water restoration work in New Trier recently so we got to wear our hard hats. Safety is always the top priority when you are cleaning fire or water damage. It is definitely very important especially in a very unsafe environment like the one in the picture below.
Our water restoration team was at the warehouse most of the night so it was a lot of water. However, the company was able to work the next day so everything was able to work out for the best. The company was very happy that they could get back to work.

Here are some tips to help you avoid water damage in your New Trier home:
1.) regular maintenance on your plumbing and roof
2.) replacing your sump pump every 2-4 years
3.) do not buy the cheap sump pumps
4.) rodding your drains and sewer pipe every year, or so depending on your conditions
5.) avoid flushing baby wipes, paper towels, and feminine products
6.) check your windows, door jams, and foundations for signs of water damage frequently
7.) regularly inspect gutters, downspouts, and window wells to make sure there is no blockage and proper draining
8.) check the backs of appliances and look at the plumbing, or water supply lines to check for leaks and corrosion
9.) make sure windows and doors are closed when it is raining especially those leading to the basement
10.) run a slow drip through your plumbing supply lines and into the drains during the winter to keep water moving, so as to prevent freezing of the pipes
11.) keep your cabinet doors on outside walls that have plumbing supply lines in them open during the winter a little bit, because they can freeze even if the room is 70 degrees. Drafts and poor insulation can lead to plumbing supply lines freezing enough to break in an otherwise warm room.
