Located on Chicago’s northwest side, Portage Park is named after the 36 acre park built in 1913 that borders Irving Park Road. This residential area is home to many Polish immigrants and has many beautiful prairie and craftsmen style bungalows built in the late 1930s and 1940s. Because of the older homes and low lying areas, Portage Park is susceptible to flooding, and the neighborhood sustained major damage during heavy rains in 2010 and 2013. ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons has assisted many homes with water damage restoration in Portage Park.
