4/20/2021 (Permalink)

Water damage, along with the odor it brings is one of those “worst case scenario” situations that no one thinks is ever going to happen to them.  But life often makes different plans for us.  Pipes burst, a fire hydrant creates a localized flood, and roofs leak. Water damage, however, seemingly minor, always requires a specialized service and it’s a problem that you’re going to want to deal with the right way. 

What are the steps to deal with water damage?

The perk about this, is that the steps are going to be easy. In fact, there is only one step here that you must worry about once you discover you have water damage; and that is to call in the professionals at SERVPRO of Logan Square/Humboldt Park!
