Between the Chicago River and the West Loop corridor to Interstate 90/94 sits Fulton Market, the self-described “industrial grit” area. This thriving area is beginning to bourgeon with nightclubs, eateries, and artist enclaves, but it’s most well known for being the meatpacking and warehouse district of Chicago. Expansive buildings and warehouses, mostly built between 1880 and 1929, stretch for blocks and house some of the largest spaces for merchandise and product inventory in the Midwest region.
While these old buildings boast charm and character not found in their newer high rise neighbors that were built in Fulton Market more recently, they come with a unique host of problems when disaster occurs. Flooding, burst pipes, and weather damage to roofing can cause severe and costly ruin to these behemoth spaces if expert water damage restoration services are not immediately initiated.
The vast size of the rooftops on many buildings in Fulton Market may afford beautiful views of the city, but severe weather can wreak havoc and cause leaking throughout the building. Fast onsite repair is crucial to prevent further damage to the building as well as the inventory housed within. Our project managers and trained technicians can arrive quickly to assess the damage and begin water damage restoration. ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons offers water extraction, structural drying, and de-humidification if needed. Our quick response also helps to prevent secondary water damage problems such as mold and microbial problems.
Historical buildings in Fulton Market may get special designation from the city, but the old pipes they contain are sometimes no match for our Midwestern winters. A flood on a top floor can displace the residents on the floors below, causing heartache and lost revenue for you and your tenants. When a broken pipe occurs, we can respond promptly to remedy the water damage and haul away any bulky, damaged items to approved areas.
If your business or residential property needs fast service with technicians who understand water damage restoration, your first call should be to ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons. We utilize the most current techniques to get you back into your Fulton Market property as soon as possible. Call us at 773-376-1110 today!
