Carpentersville Office/Warehouse Water Damage

Commercial water damage occurred at this office/warehouse building in Carpentersville, IL when a roof leaked due to a heavy rain while the roofing company was repairing the roof. SERVPRO was called to clean up the water from the floors and all of office desks. WE brought in water removal equipment and staff for extraction. After the water was removed, we set up commercial air movers and dehumidification equipment to promote more rapid drying of the premises. During the drying process we made it possible for the business to remain open.

Algonquin Martial Arts Flooded Due To Sprinkler System

This Algonquin, IL business had the sprinkler system goes off because of freezing pipes. The call came from a management company over the weekend. We meet with both management company and business owner. We explained that all of the wet material needed to be removed and then place commercial grade dehumidifiers and air movers drying. Both the business owner and management company gave us the go ahead to start the job. The customer was able to open up within couple of days while the necessary construction and cleanup was still going on. The business lost only 3 days this was an unexpected plus for the customer.

Sewage Backup In Crystal Lake Businesses Basement

The clients and employees of this Commercial Property noticed a terrible smell in their building.  Upon further inspection, a custodian discovered the source of the problem.  A sewer pipe had burst open in the basement and flooded the concrete floor with raw sewage.

SERVPRO of Southern McHenry County had a crew of two technicians working on site for a half a day.  Fortunately our highly trained technicians have experience cleaning with commercial losses and know that the work must be done quickly, thoroughly, and safely.  Our technicians contained off the area to prevent any unwanted odors from entering the business offices while they worked to extract the sewage, clean, sanitize and deodorize the floors.  Once the bulk of the mess was cleaned up, our crew returned the following day to make sure the humidity levels and odors had gone back to how it was before the incident.  “Like it never even happened.”

The Huntley Area Public Library was affected by a water damage. The library forced closed due to the extreme cold that ruptured sprinklers.

The library spoke persons comment are below.

“We have carpet drying out, we have wet couches and chairs and we have materials drying,” Leigh Ann Porsch, library spokeswoman, said. “It’s not extensive damage. Things are just a mess.”

The west side of the building, near the library’s bay windows and the audiobook section suffered the worst water damage, Porsch said. The library’s materials are relatively intact, aside from some damaged audiobooks, CDs and children audio kits.

We were able to dry everything is 3 days.

Commercial Water Damage – 600 Industrial Drive

Commercial water damage to 600 Industrial building was caused by a broken sewer line running down the Industrial drive. AT&T years ago had run a telecommunication cable striking a Village of Cary sewer line. It took several years after to finally become blocked. There was sewage coming up in all the units including the SERVPRO of Southern McHenry County unit. SERVPRO came to the rescue going back and forth between the units extracting the sewage from each of the business units in the building. Once the city and ATT resolved the problem. SERVPRO went through all of the units finished up cleaning and disinfecting the affected rooms in each business unit.

That day we were really SERVPRO hero’s.
