At SERVPRO of Orland we know that every water damage event is a little different and may require a unique solution, but the general process stays the same.  We take pride in helping our clients maintain the integrity and structure of their belongings. 

When a large area of wood floors is affected, we have specialty systems to dry them without removing the entire floor. Replacing an entire floor can be very costly.  Wood can easily warp and begin to separate in a short period of time when affected by water.  Our inject a dry system uses a special mat with hoses and air movers attached to dry underneath the floor.  

We take pride in helping our clients maintain the integrity and structure of their belongings. Returning our customers lives back to normal as quickly as possible is our number one concern. 

So give us a call! We are faster to any disaster and are here to help get you back to "Like it never even happened."

Homeowners are no stranger to water damage. Whether a pipe bursts behind a wall or rain creates roof leaks that need fast resolution, the technicians at SERVPRO have industrial-grade equipment and years of expertise in the field. Emphasis is placed on effective mitigation to preserve property, assets, and structural integrity for homeowners.

Why SERVPRO?

Fast response and excellence in service are just the tip of the iceberg when a SERVPRO team comes to your home. Fully-certified disaster cleanup professionals can restore structures and property with the help of equipment and materials that can prevent warping, buckling, and cupping of sheetrock, drywall, and hardwood flooring. The team also handles charity work, aiding such organizations as the Sertoma Centre and the Children's Museum in Oak Lawn.

Top-of-the-Line Techniques & Tools

Because water damage is fast-acting and invasive, extraction starts when the SERVPRO team reaches your property. Technicians use a variety of industrial-grade tools to maximize precision and safety in ways that consumer fans, spray cleaners, and wet/dry vacuums cannot. These items include:

Advanced water detection methods, including the use of infrared cameras, hygrometers, and moisture sensors, to ensure thorough removal of moisture. These tools even allow technicians to evaluate damage behind walls and ceilings, or under floors.

Portable and truck-mounted extraction pumps to handle both small and large-scale disasters and facilitate faster drying.

Commercial-grade drying equipment, including air movers and dehumidifiers. These items work together to pull moisture off of surfaces and into the air. Moisture is then absorbed so it can be replaced with warm, dry air.

The team at SERVPRO of Orland Park is here to help. We are dedicated to bringing you reliable service 24/7. We're faster to any size disaster so your home can be restored quickly and properly.  If you need emergency service, call (708) 532-3377 today.

Why SERVPRO Treats for Microbial Growth After Water Removal

10/5/2020 (Permalink)

Getting an Orland Park residence restored after a disaster means another family can move forward and forget about the stress and hardship caused by a terrible event. At SERVPRO, we treat all our customers like family, so knowing we can help make things right again means a lot to us. We use our specialized training to give those relying on us the best possible service when they need to restore their home.

This is why SERVPRO specialists go one extra step when working on a house in Orland Park that requires water removal services. Some areas of a home can become havens for microbial infestations after being damp for only a short period. Concrete and brick are notorious for sweating, especially after a period of saturation from water loss incidents.

We do everything possible to get your home dry after an incident involving broken pipes using our drying equipment, but ever-present microbes can latch onto moisture and then begin growing. To stop this, an antimicrobial agent that encapsulates any microscopic organisms and then crushes them as it dries takes care of any possible infestations.

Our IICRC training stresses prevention whenever possible, as this helps save our customers money in the long run. Water in a home, even slight dampness, almost always leads to mold and mildew problems. Either can cause health effects in addition to property damage, including loss of keepsakes and other precious belongings. Instead of leaving things merely dry, we prevent the most common problem that might arise out of the situations we just mitigated.

While we remove all of the water we can, microbes only require a minuscule amount. A few drops spread out can seem almost imperceptible to someone. When this amount rests in the pores of brick and concrete, which also happen to provide microbes a perfect little home, treating with a fast-drying anti-fungal agent becomes an effective and cost-effective way to add significant protection to a property.

SERVPRO of Orland Park can help you protect your home with every stage of water removal services and beyond. We do more than mitigate damage; we help prevent it with effective measures that save you money. Call us today (708) 532-3377

SERVPRO Answers the Call 25/7 for Restoration Services

4/27/2020 (Permalink)

First responders can deal with the immediate danger of a home emergency. Contractors can replace the weakened structure or perform remodeling duties. The restorer operates in between, performing drying, cleaning, and deodorizing to ensure permanent damages are kept to a minimum. Our restoration services are professional using our employees local to the area with access to national resources and equipment.

Water Damage

The restoration of water damage falls under two broad categories. The first is open system drying. Principally, open system drying involves exchanging moist indoor air with drier outdoor air. SERVPRO achieves this by opening windows and doors in the home to create an open circuit. The strategic placement of rapid air-movers encourages both airflow, through centrifugal motion, and evaporation by raising surface temperatures.

Restoration services using open-system drying may be deemed inappropriate by a SERVPRO technician. During colder periods of the year, the opening of windows and ventilation in Orland Park may not be feasible. In these circumstances, a technician can use a closed-system drying method. The core principles remain the same, except dehumidifiers with desiccant chemicals are used for the exchange of moist air with drier air. Sometimes, a drying tent may be set up to concentrate remediation efforts.

Both methods are proper drying techniques for your Orland Park home. Humidity levels need to be monitored continuously throughout the operation using thermal hygrometers. By keeping moisture in the air below 60 grains per pound, SERVPRO can ensure microbial growth remains under control throughout the process. This controlling of microbial growth is essential to avoiding expensive secondary damages to your structure and possessions.

Restoration services are geared toward mitigating loss and guarding against future damage. Contact SERVPRO of Orland Park today (708) 532-3377.

Disinfecting Your Orland Park Home or Business

3/23/2020 (Permalink)

With the recent pandemic of COVID-19 spreading across the state of Illinois, residents are looking at their living and work conditions more closely.  

SERVPRO of Orland Park can help with disinfecting and cleaning both after contact with the disease or as a preventative measure. With our present experience with other harmful microorganisms and bacteria present in sewage backups and other biohazardous threats to structures, our technicians already possess much of the training, equipment, and disinfection processes necessary to protect your home. 

The techs make safety for all a priority and wear complete physical protection as well as set up containment whenever necessary to halt the potential for cross-contamination during cleanup since the CDC theorizes that the coronavirus may spread via airborne transmission.
