The water might ruin the building, equipment, records, and food inventory. It is crucial to follow several procedures after water damage in a restaurant. One is to ensure the safety of the customers, employees, and restorers. Be ready to close off the affected areas. Our SERVPRO technicians usually wear personal protective equipment like gloves, eye protection, and rubber boots to ensure safety.

SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville relies on introducing a stream of dry air over the water-damaged surfaces for a faster drying process. We use air-moving equipment, primarily the axial air movers, which can move larger air volumes. They work at lower pressures and high volumes to cover larger areas, which makes them the preferred method for commercial properties.
