Rain Storm, Snow Storm, Ice Storm

Left untouched, wet ceiling drywall and insulation will create an environment for mold growth.

Storms can happen anytime of the year in the Lombard, Addison, Oakbrook Terrace, or Villa Park area.  Just because we are in the dead of winter doesn't mean we are safe!

The snow is going to thaw.  If you have a healthy amount of snow on top of your roof, when it melts, it's going somewhere.  Hopefully, it will stay out of your home or business.  Ice dams will occur if the melting snow has nowhere to go.

SERVPRO of Lombard/Addison has been through these situations.  We can take care of the inside water damage that may occur.  

Lombard, Addison, Oakbrook Terrace or Villa Park residents, please give us a call if you have water damage from an ice dam.

You May Have Seen One of These

A healthy sump pump will keep you dry.

Got a basement?

Chances are you may have a sump pump.  And if your basement is big and beautiful enough, you may have two.  

A sump pump is your primary protection from outside rainwater intruding into your basement.  Nobody cares about a sump pump when its running just fine, but everybody cares when it fails.  

Whether your basement if finished or unfinished, many people use their basement for storage.  And a lot of times, homeowners keep important documents and pictures in storage in a basement.

The best time to check on a sump pump is during a rainy day.  A good idea is to check on it to see how it is performing when rainwater is coming into the sump pit.  Watch for proper operation of the pump and the float.  Listen for sound of the pump motor as is pumps the water out of the pit.  A smooth running sump pump will remove the water out of the pit in a few seconds and perform flawlessly during the storm.  If you notice the pump struggling to keep up, it might be a good time to think of replacement with a more powerful pump.  

In case of sump pump failure, give SERVPRO of Lombard/Addison a call for assistance.  We can be onsite and help cleanup in a jiffy.  SERVPRO of Lombard/Addison has trained staff to do it well and do it right.  630-543-1700.
