Sewage Backup Chicago

 Sewage Backup Chicago?

Q: I make my living by buying and flipping foreclosed homes. A lot of the time I get a good deal because the homes are infested with mold. I have a few mold infested homes in the greater Chicago area and I want to make sure they are remediated properly. I really do not want to flip a home and give some poor family a mold time bomb. I do not know what caused each specific house to get flooded or how long they have been sitting vacant. As I said the homes are scattered everywhere around Chicago so I am looking for a company that can give me a good deal, since I have so many projects, but still do the work the way it needs to be done. Is 2nd Chance Water Restoration capable of helping to make these homes in the Chicago area mold free?

Chicago sewage cleanup

A: 2nd Chance Water Restoration specializes in removing mold from homes across the Chicago landscape. The best way to not have a mold is to effectively treat the water damage restoration before it becomes a mold problem. Mold only becomes a problem in a home if a few criteria are met. The quickest way for mold to grow it seems is to make a house vacant because if there is no one there when the sewer backup happens or the pipe burst than water will meet with organic material and mold will grow and thrive within twenty four to seventy two hours. All of our lead technicians are certified in water Damage restoration and applied anti microbial remediation. Applied anti microbial remediation is a fancy way of saying mold. We do recommend getting an industrial hygienist to inspect each home before and after each sewage backup or mold removal job performed by 2nd Chance Water Restoration.

sewer backup in Chicago

There are three kinds of mold removal companies and they are removers, testers, and companies that do both. We recommend that you get a separate company for testing and a separate company for removal. We further recommend that you find these companies separately because you do not want some company grading their work our the work of their friends. When you were a kid you did not grade your own school work and you should not have a mold or sewage backup job tested by the same water damage restoration company. Many times people have bought a house cheap in order to flip it but than ran into problems in the flipping process because the newer buyers are not buying cheap hopefully and will insist on everything being perfect. The first thing you learn in applied anti microbial remediation class is that you are not supposed to do testing if you do removal and vice versa. There is a lot of horror stories in the mold removal industry because there has been a history of fly by night companies not doing mold removal according to the standard of the industry. 2nd Chance Water Restoration is accredited with an A plus rating with the Chicago BBB, has five stars on all the search engines, five stars on yelp, and five stars on Angie’s List.
