Most water damage restoration services in Chicago average between $3,000 and $8,000. It is usually calculated per square foot, so the final figures for large properties can be higher. Severe damage and extensive reconstruction also add to restoration expenses.
Contamination from sewage backup or toxic black mold growth are just a few examples of issues that may complicate a restoration project. Time is a factor too. Without immediate cleanup, water damage quickly spreads and increases the square footage that must be restored.
Typically, most policies cover 100 percent of water damages excluding your deductible. However, be sure to check coverage details with your agent. We need as much information as possible so that we can help you file your water damage restoration claim.
Water damage restoration can involve removing soaked materials including floors, walls, and carpets. It can also involve the removal of affected structure materials. The drying process averages between three and five days. Finish time depends on job size.
It’s very important that you document all water damage with photographs. Most agents consider you responsible for an inventory
Reconstruction should be discussed after the drying process is complete. The process for reconstruction is different than the restoration process. Upon request, we will write up an estimate for you to approve and collect a deposit before starting the work. Your insurance company is also involved with the billing and will send you funds so you are able to get the work started. This could sometimes take a couple of weeks.
