Basement flooding in Richton Park
We got a call for basement flooding in Richton Park recently so we took the pictures below there. You can see the wet insulation is still hanging in this picture so that is why we had to remove the drywall. We have to take out the walls, when the insulation behind the wall gets wets. This type of insulation is never the same after it gets wet so it needs to come out. There is also a high chance for mold growth, when you try to dry this type of insulation. It is never fun to cut out drywall but it also usually necessary or we don't do it.
We are certified in water restoration and we also use the latest moisture reading technology in the industry. Part of our FREE estimate is helping you determine how wet your walls and floors are. Using the best tools and experience in the industry allows us to show you in a hurry how to best dry your home. We can dry any home with 2-3 days no matter how wet it is or what the power situation is. 2nd Chance Water Restoration dries homes in Richton Park better than anyone.

Here are some tips to help you avoid water damage in your Richton Park 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.
Water Restoration in Richton Park
Water restoration in Richton Park was what the Chicago insurance company
told us on the phone, so we knew what to expect. This water restoration call came in due to a cat that knows how to turn on a sink. The homeowners cat likes to play with the sink in this Richton Park home's kitchen so it can get a fresh drink. On the day of the flood the homeowner had left a rag and some dishes in the sink while in a hurry for work. It was about a week after the flood, when the homeowner saw the cat playing with the sink again.

Rebuild and remodel in Richton Park
This Richton Park rebuild and remodel
work was something the homeowners had no choice about due to sewage backup. The sewage backup meant everything in the basement had to come out, so the homeowners went with tile. They also put in a sewer backflow valve to eliminate sewage backup in the future. Getting tile was a great investment due to the way it resists water and sewage damage.

This image is from a commercial water restoration project in Richton Park from a couple months ago. The water main broke outside this warehouse so the whole building had a couple inches of water in a hurry. It was amazing especially with the amount of drainage in the building. The amount of water going through this place was just insane.
This home in Richton Park had water damage due to a backup in the sewer system. The sump pump was unable to keep up due to the amount of water it had to deal with. It was bad timing mixed with a little bad luck, so it felt great to help them get back to normal.
We got there within an hour of the phone call, so the water damage was able to get clean up quick. Give us a call if you have basement flooding or other water damage in Richton Park at (866) 575-5814.
