This Northbrook, Illinois home suffered a sump pump failure. When the customer discover over 1 foot of water, wall to wall in their 1800 square foot finished basement, Fire & Flood Restoration Specialists water extraction group arrived at 5PM on a Friday afternoon, and worked through the night until no standing water remained. The crew then worked through the weekend removing all wet items, removing all soaked paneling, disposing all waterlogged insulation, and clearing out 30 years of saturated goods in basement. All disposal was handled with two 30-yard dumpsters. All items which were salvageable were dried, sanitized and returned to customer. The structure was dried and odorized with advanced drying and humidification equipment. All mold tests returned from the testing lab free and clear of bacterial growth.
This basement was reconstructed once Fire & Flood’s insurance pros negotiated a homeowners settlement with Liberty Mutual.
