Water Damage from a Fire Above in Buena Park, Chicago, IL

Residence in the Buena Park Neighborhood in Chicago Illinois experience water damage from the unit above that had a fire. The unit above continued to leak water down into the homeowners’ unit. This was due to the delay in removing contents and debris by the unit owner above. Drying was an extremely slow process since the plaster was installed on top of fire block. The walls had to be perforated to let them breath and the baseboards were detached. Containments were built around the affected walls to keep the heat and dry air in. Large art pieces were covered up and protected where they hung so they wouldn’t be handled, as that could lead to damages. The client was very happy at the results, especially that the art was saved.
