1.) the first thing that you need to do, when you notice water damage is identify where the water is coming.
2.) the second thing that you need to do, when you notice water damage is extract, or remove the water from the affected area.

5.) Use moisture meters to check the moisture in the affected material.
Frequently asked question:
What type of water can damage my property?
There are basically three different types of water that damage homes, or commercial properties. The first category of water is from plumbing supply line failures, which consist of the cleaner type of water that can cause damage. The second category of water mainly consist of rain, storm, or ground water and can contain micro organisms and other contaminants. The third type of water is used primarily to describe sewage and other more hazardous water.
Did I mention that we can come out for free anywhere in the Chicago land area to do a moisture check and give you a totally free no obligation estimate for water damage, or mold removal?
Because we can get anywhere in the Chicago land area within an hour.
Can I save carpet that has suffered water damage? Find out here!
In some cases it is relatively easy to save the carpet, but it has to be a category one, or category two water damage. Never save carpet that has been hit with category three water, because it is hazardous and can cause breath psychical harm especially to the young, old and those that suffer from weaker immune systems. A lot of people try to save carpet and padding that has been bit hit by sewage, but 2nd Chance Water Restoration would never do that, but it is against a reasonable standard of care.
To save carpet that has been hit by categories one, or two water, you must begin by extracting the water from carpet and pad. The pad generally should be thrown out, unless it is category one water and you are able to properly extract it and get enough air flow under and on top of it. 2nd Chance Water Restoration has a truck mounted weight assisted extraction machine that we can use to extract the carpet and pad in place as long as the pad does not have a vapor barrier. In cases of vapor barriers it is more cost effective to remove the padding.
Will you go to Chicago for a small water damage, or mold job?
Yes, 2nd Chance Water Restoration serves the entire Chicago land Area and can generally get to a water damage, or mold removal estimate with an hour. Call us today at 630-546-2239!
Do I need to detach the trim, or baseboards, because they got hit with water damage?
In most cases it is wise to detach the trim and baseboards to allow hit flow to hit the drywall behind it, because the trim, or baseboard acts like a vapor barrier that prevents proper drying. If it is category three water (sewage) than the trim and baseboards should be tossed out (remove affected drywall too).
How do I clean sewage off a concrete floor?
It is easiest to out it back down the sewage pipe, or drain that it came out of in most cases. Basically, you have to wash it down the drain with a surfactant like dish soap. Follow FDA guide lines and do not use bleach, or harsh disinfectants, because they are potentially hazardous and not as effective. It is ok to apply disinfectants, after the sewage is cleaned up, if you wish, but an anti-microbial surfactant can do the job. Make sure that you get it dried properly.
Is mold dangerous whether it is alive, or dead?
Yes, mold is dangerous whether it is alive, or dead, because the mycotoxins that they produce in their war for food do not break very quickly and the human body can not easily break down, or get it out of it’s system which is why mold cause serious health issues for people. It is important, when you are dealing with mold that you get both a mold test company and a mold remediation company like 2nd Chance Water Restoration to come out and perform their individual services. It is important that you do not use the same company to do both the mold test and the mold remediation, because that would be a severe conflict of interest. You should have both a pre and post mold remediation mold test done to insure that the mold was removed properly.
How did I get mold in my house?
Mold is a sign of water damage to a property,because mold needs water to live just like every other living organism. Different types of mold will grow depending on what conditions are currently going on in the property. We suggest that you call an indoor environmentalist, industrial hygienist or a professional mold test company to come in and do a mold test, if you think mold is present. You can call us to ask us for our opinions, or to do the mold removal after you get the mold test results. The mold test should contain a protocol for the mold remediation project that clearly identifies the type of mold and suggested remediation techniques to remove the mold.
