Fire restoration in Orland Hills
The picture below is of work we were doing for fire restoration in Orland Hills. The fire was upstairs so the water from the fire truck came down every wall into the basement. The ashes and soot also came down from the top floor. The air system took all the smoke from the top floors and brought it down into the basement. This made it so the whole building had a smoke odor
even after all the water damage.
We do give free estimates for fire restoration in Orland Hills, so give us a call at (866) 575-5814 anytime. Our blog on how to remove smoke odor
will also help the do-it-yourself crowd.

Here are some tips to help you avoid water damage in your Orland Hills 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.
