Reviews in Chicago to Remove Water

K & K Cleaning Service
On the day after Christmas when I discovered that my water heater had flooded the carpeted basement, I called K & K and someone was there to take my call. I wasn't sure if I would be able to get help on this holiday week. They explained to me what the process would be to clean up my mess and Keith was out to the house within an hour.

We called the company on Tuesday night at 5 pm to ask for an immediate estimate. They came out in an hour, gave us an estimate and told us they could use green products as I did not want harmful chemicals in my home. We agreed to price and Carol, had three workers at my house buy 10 am the next morning.. They prepped my house so none of my belongings were damaged, removed damaged drywall and set up 3 dehumidifiers and 2 air scrubbers immediately. The job was done quickly and cleanly, no easy feat since they had to go up and down a ladder in to a hot attic. There was some damage done to ceiling below while they were removing the floor, but Carol was very responsive and sent so done out to repair without any complaint. I think this was just an unavoidable accident because of tight quarters where they were working. I also called her to get a recommendation for someone to clean the drywall dust out of the attic room after the other construction crew left. Carol tried to find someone to help me, but everyone was booked up so she is sending out her own workers to do it at no charge to us even though it was not her responsibility. That is unusual today for someone to help you when they are not obligated and is one of the reasons I would definitely use this company again and highly recommend them to others!

Beauty and the Brush
They are prompt, professional and they did an excellent job on our ceiling. They cleaned up at the end of each day and did not leave a mess after the job was completed. The cost was even less than the estimate because it did not take as long as he estimated. They started on a Friday and although they don't work weekends, they finished it up on Saturday. Great customer service. Responsive. A+

PuroClean Disaster Services
Great. Contacted the local (Northbrook) office and they were here in less than 10 minutes. Explained exactly what would be done and ways to prevent future flooding. Returned several days later to collect their equipment (fans, dehumidifier) and test carpet and walls for residual moisture. After several months, I'm confident there was no permanent damage from the flood.

Jeremy was great to work with. He provided a timely estimate. Though Jeremy had another guy perform the task, it went very well. My neighbor is pleased with the work.

American Cleaning And Restoration Inc
We were linked up with American through our insurance company. They came out the next day even with a ton of other floods in our area. They pulled up all of the floor and cut the drywall quickly. The reno team communicated with us and gave us tips on what pictures to take/things to think of from an insurance perspective. They set up a ton of fans and dehumidifiers to dry things out as quickly as possible. For a terrible situation they provided some piece of mind. I do wish there would have been a little more communication afterwards from the corporate side since, as first timers, we didn't really know the process and felt like I had to reach out to them often regarding logistics. They did however respond quickly to my calls/emails. I do also wish that we had been told to remove any personal/non damaged items prior to them coming since a few of our non-flood impacted items were damaged during the process.

The CleanUP Guys
Thursday, April 18th flood backed up water into finished basement, 4-5 inches. Looked up service online. Spoke with boss, Wayne, who quoted price and came over on time. Hard sell regarding dangers of HIV and hepatitis in the contaminated water and urgent need to remove and disenfect for family safety. Workers were courteous and hard-working. Removed carpet, advised baseboards were wet particle board and removed those as well. Discovered tile under carpet which made cleanup easier. Were advised no need to replace drywall. Friday we discovered they forgot to clean in storage area under stairs as was contracted. Called and left multiple messages with no callback. So much for the urgency to prevent disease. We cleaned up remaining mess on our own. They did call Saturday, but we had finished the cleanup. Our long-time and trusted contractor came on Sunday. Opened drywall and noted saturated insulation that needed removal. Next noted plywood flooring under tiling (FYI it is a bad idea to do this) that was also soaked and needed removal. Moral of the experience: They arrived promptly and were polite and hard-working but neglected to do part of job. Their assessment of water damage and need for remediation was sub-standard. Had we trusted this assessment, we would potentially be dealing with a significant mold issue down the road. UPDATE: 4/27/13 Sherman, the owner, called and expressed empathy and regret for our experience. He indicated this was not the usual situation in their 18 years of doing business, and there was likely miscommunication with the service team due to the stress of the flooding and so many people needing service. He offered to refund 20% of the fees. To us this was an acceptable resolution. Although I wish the service was complete and transparent from the outset, I believe the owner is practicing in good faith and trying to deliver quality service.

NorPro Services Ltd
We had to redo 90% of our master bathroom because there had been so much damage from leakage in our shower. The only things staying the same were the sink and toilet. The original developer installed the shower floor very badly ? cheap materials, no pitch on the threshold, and a bad seal around our shower drain. We had to replace much of the flooring underneath the shower and some of the ceiling in the room below. The tile was so damaged from constant leakage that we opted to retile the entire shower and bathroom floor. We found NorPro online and they came to the rescue. With Mihai as our GC we had, quite simply, a perfect experience with NorPro: zero negatives and many positives. Mihai couldn?t have been easier to work with. He communicates extremely clearly, which matters a lot, especially when, as in our case, there are some complicated details involved. But communicating clearly is one thing; being responsive is another, and Mihai did both. He was quick to answer email as well as text messages whenever we had questions or concerns. We had a quote within 24 hours of our first meeting with Mihai, and when we needed to make some changes, he followed up with a revised quote, again within 24 hours. Also, after construction began, when some major noise issues arose because of our bathroom location very close to our neighbors? bedroom, Mihai was very responsive to our request to give us advance notice for the noisier parts of the project so that we could in turn give our neighbors a heads up the day before (Mihai?s subcontractors were also very respectful about starting any such jobs during regular business hours). We were beyond impressed with everyone Mihai hired: a tile installer, a plumber, a carpenter, a glass door specialist, and a painter, along with their assistants. The subcontractors were uniformly polite and friendly, happy to answer questions if they came up and quick to consult where decisions were required. We also felt completely comfortable with any of them in our house while we were there and while we were away. In fact, we ended up needing to have about half the work done while we were abroad for a week, and we were proven right in our complete trust of Mihai and all of his crew. I do want to give an extra shout-out to Mihai?s tile installer, Marian. We are so happy with the results of his work! We opted for porcelain tiles to replace the slate originally installed by the developer, partly for looks but mostly because it promises to be less prone to leakage and less susceptible to erosion. Marian did a truly beautiful job with the materials and the challenging designs we asked him to work with. Finally, NorPro was 100% on time at every stage of the project, which is rare, as I?m sure most readers of this website know. There were also no surprise charges at the end of the project. We paid exactly what we were quoted. With these two achievements, combined with their brilliant repair and installation work overall, NorPro hit the trifecta for us. We will certainly hire them again the next time we have a project in their bailiwick.

Perfection Cleaning & Restoration
It went extremely well. The crew got to my house the same day I called when other companies had me pushed into the next week. They put everything up on blocks off the floor, cleaned up the water, took out sections of the walls that were damaged, and set up all their drying equipment. They checked on the house daily to check equipment and make sure everything was being dried properly. Excellent service!

Super Steam, Inc.
We called Super Steam after our basement flooded from our water heater. Nick came out, assessed the damage, and got the crew to work within an hour of my initial call. He calmed us down during a very stressful time and explained the whole process thoroughly. Super Steam also did all of our reconstruction work and got our basement back to normal quickly. If we ever have an emergency situation again, I’ll be giving them a call!
- Mato P....
The company did what they were contracted to do but I wasn't entirely satisfied with the work. I believe that they were aggressive in the amount of dry wall cut out -- walls where the flood water didn't touch; there was one issue regarding a damaged cabinet that was left unresolved -- owner, who initially sold and oversaw the work didn't follow up; and the clean up was minimal -- space wasn't even broom swept, owner wasn't there for the final walk through.

Servdry, Inc. Water Damage and Carpet Cleaning
Robert was excellent. Came out the same day to assess the situation and provide a quote. He came out the next day and started cleaning/tearing the drywall and putting enzymes so mold wouldn’t grow. He was done in 4 days and 2 of the days was for the fans to dry out the area. I would highly recommend ServDry for all your water damage needs.

Recent Review: JT, his wife Marie, and the team at AdvantaClean far surpassed my expectations. They operate on a level above most comapnies you will find today. JT was so responsive, he always awnsered my phonecalls or would return them promptly. He came far out of his way to our house in Sycamore on a Saturday to give us an estimate. He was honest, knowledgable, and I was very comfortable having him and his team in my home. I was worried about the repair because I was a brand new homeowner, two weeks away from my due date when the damage occured (I am a worry wort and I made him test for mold, and also for lead paint in our walls) He was so patient, and even went out of his way to help me work with my insurance company. I have high standards when it comes to customer service, and the whole crew at AdvantaClean far surpassed all of my expectations. I will definatly call AdvantaClean in the future for air duct maintenence and refer them to my friends and family. Thank you AdvantaClean! -The Schairers


Roselle, IL

Recent Review: As a gift for 'hosting' me for a week, I gave my sister a gift of service (Angie's List Deal) by Done Just Right Cleaning (DJR), to clean her clothes dryer vent. She had had another service prior to DJR - that service charged twice as much and cleaned only from the dryer to the first few feet of the dryer with a brush. As a result lint piled up along the dryer vent run, which is 40 feet long to the outside and takes two 90 degree turns. My sister has never before had a service she evaluated with no complaints until DJR - she is extremely detailed & particular. I thought DJR was great - here are my sister's words: "The two men from DJR were wonderful and did a professional, thorough dryer vent cleaning . They did not charge extra to access the outside vent on the second floor and were very reasonably priced. They took the cage off the outside of the second floor vent (that protects against birds) and used a suction hose for much of the 40 ft run. They cleaned from the dryer up into the ceiling ductwork to complete the job. There was significant lint in the dryer vent line. The men told me the other dryer vent service I used should not have used a brush because it can dislodge the ductwork." My sister will use them again as they knew what they were doing, were tidy, and gave my sister peace of mind that a fire or water damage would not occur. Thank you!

Huntley, IL

Recent Review: Of the several mold removal businesses I contacted, Alliance was the only one where someone (Greg) told me that before contracting to have mold removed, I should hire a "mold inspector" to examine and test both the mold (which was visible) and the air, thus insuring an objective evaluation of the problem. I did this, and then, after getting two other estimates, hired Alliance to do the job. The crew was on time, efficient, and courteous. Greg's partner explained the process to me before they started, and he checked the outside of my house to discuss other changes I might make--landscaping, gutter-improvement--to prevent future water damage from seepage into the basement. He did not try to steer me toward any specific business, so I didn't get the feeling he was just making a sales pitch on behalf of a friend. I have discussed his recommendations with people knowledgeable enough to verify that they make sense. The mold removal was a huge, noisy job. In the bathroom, a shower surround was removed to treat the drywall behind it, and all furniture, etc., in the contaminated are was covered and sealed under tarps. My biggest fear was that when it was over I would find my basement (formerly finished and pretty attractive) in a hideous state ot chaos. I'm happy to report that it doesn't look bad at all; the drywall was cut away but covered with a white anti-mold substance that happens to look like paint. Alliance cleaned up all the mess. Throughout the process and during the 2 days after it was over, while the HEPA air scrubbers continued to run, cleaning the air, I made a few phone calls to Greg with questions about whether I could safely go downstairs, when the filters would be removed, etc. He always responded immediately and reasonably. I wouldn't wish mold on anyone, but if it happens, I'd recommend this company.

Recent Review: Wiz Team has consistently provided extremely professional service at our home. in regards to the water damage situation, they arrived quickly to assess and address the problems thoroughly. Once assessed, the immediate problem of wet carpet and drywall removal was performed at once and completely, followed by anti-microbial cleaner application, and finally whole space dehumidification for consecutive days to ensure mold growth was inhibited. All throughout the process, George and his team took the time and devoted the energy to inform and educate us as to what was being done and why it was necessary. In addition, George's knowledge of water damage and its causes/effects helped us in deciding how to best remedy the problem and prevent future damage.
