Something that our SERVPRO team often addresses with clients who have suffered from a water loss is what we can do to save their belongings from water damage. While there is no cookie-cutter answer, we do have the skills and techniques to address water loss events on all levels. Each event is unique, and our team treats each project on a case-by-case basis to ensure the best results.

If you are dealing with water damage in Buffalo Grove, we will come in to perform a detailed assessment to determine the best course of action. When it comes to water damage, the type that your home is subjected to will set the stage for the cleanup and restoration steps moving forward. 

Water Damage Types

Whether or not the water that your personal belongings is deemed clean or contaminated plays a significant role in determining solvability. With clean water, the probability is much higher that technicians can salvage some or most of your belongings. If there is contaminated water, the potential health hazards can outweigh anything else. 


Something else that SERVPRO technicians consider is the length of time, and the materials have been saturated. The longer that any materials sit in water, the deeper the water can penetrate. For example, it can take longer for water to penetrate solid wood furniture, but belongings made of pressboard could become ruined in a much shorter time. 

Porous materials like fabrics and paper are known for water retention, which increases the chances of mold growth. If handled quickly, these items might be able to be restored. Non-porous materials like metal, porcelain, and marble have a much higher probability of full restoration after drying and disinfecting with our industrial-strength cleaners.

SERVPRO’s skilled technicians follow the standards set forth by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration. This means that we put the health and safety of all workers and occupants first, we document all of the conditions and our work procedures, and set processes in place for proper mitigation, drying, cleaning, and repair.
