Storms will blow, but SERVPRO is here to help!
The storm caused the exposed attic to blow items around and damage the ceiling. This type of Chicago storm damage is common during certain times of the year. The Lake, The Hawk, is renowned for buffetting buildings with high winds. SERVPRO technicians placed blue tarps on the roof to keep out the rainwater and the wind. After the destroyed ceiling had been removed, we sealed the attic with poly sheeting to reduce the volume of air that needed to be dried out. We set up several dehumidifiers and air handlers, not pictured, to remove the water vapor. A fogging of the attic crawlspace, using an antimicrobial product, disinfected the storm damaged area. The rebuild was the final phase of this project. We treat each home as if it were our own.
