July Storm Event 2017 in Algonquin
This storm water was the result of the heavy rains from the July Storm Event of 2017 backing up into to the basement level of this home in the Algonquin. The photo illustrates the water on the carpet the homeowner had already pulled the carpet away from the walls to prevent water wicking up in the walls. We extracted the water to create a safer home environment. We also placed air movers and dehumidifiers were set up to evaporate and capture the remaining moisture lingering in the structure. This moisture removal took five days to dry out after we removed the carpet padding and carpet. During the drying process the structure was verified that the drywall was within normal standards of dryness.
