When there are plumbing issues that cause commercial water removal needs in a Chicagoland property, the answer is the cleanup efforts need to begin as quickly as possible for more than one reason. 

Water Does Not Age Well

Unlike a fine wine, water gets worse and sometimes more dangerous with age. Even clean water from an interior pipe in a building can create larger issues if it sits for too long before it gets removed. SERVPRO techs routinely run into problems such as: 

  • Harmful bacteria in water allowed to degrade.
  • Larger migration area requiring extraction and drying.
  • More significant damage to building materials due to a delay in cleanup efforts.

Local businesses trust SERVPRO of Oak Park-River Forest at (708) 483-8636 with their commercial water removal needs in their Chicagoland properties.
