Following a burst pipe, flood or dangerous storm, you may have water in business or commercial property. After we remove the water, the next step is removing debris that can cause injuries or promote the spread of mold and mildew.
As part of the restoration process, we dry out any salvageable materials and dispose of other wet items. During a large loss restoration, we will work with equipment specialists to preserve as much data as possible. However, we may need to dispose of softer materials like drywall, fabric, and paper to preserve structure integrity.
Mold Remediation and Prevention
The sooner you call for help for large loss restoration, the easier it is to stop the spread of mold and prevent new colonies from forming. Once mold takes over your commercial building, it makes the process of mold remediation more extensive. However, our specialists understand what's on the line and fight to protect and defend your property and the items in it. That’s why we have developed a 6-step mold remediation process that helps successfully remediate water damage and prevent mold from spreading.
Here's an overview of our remediation process:
- Identify all moisture sources that provide a thriving habitat for mold.
- Seal off the contaminated areas of the building to contain mold spores.
- Suppress dust, which can contain microscopic spores that can travel throughout the property.
- Use HEPA air scrubbers and dehumidifiers to dry out all construction materials as quickly as possible.
- Clean salvageable materials with safe, industrial strength sanitizers.
- Restore the damaged area once we check that the mold is gone for good.
We also offer services such as carpet cleaning for smaller restoration projects or unflooded, damp areas.
Restoration and Construction
Once we have cleaned up and tested the contaminated areas, we begin the process of commercial restoration. Our large loss restoration team works closely with property owners and managers to determine the areas you would like us to focus on. For example, we often have to remove drywall panels in order to access mold or remediate water damage.
You may need to replace the drywall and rebuild areas with more extensive structural damage. This process may include replacing other construction materials, such as wood or metal removed during the cleanup.
Additionally, large loss remediators deal with both structural and aesthetic concerns. Ideally, when you move back into the space, it will look as good as new..
During the planning phase, we will assess the damage and determine whether there are any remaining areas of standing water. We will start with areas in need of immediate attention due to material damage or exposure to the elements. Then, our team can explain the methods of clean-up that we offer and assess the risk of additional mold growth. We will prioritize the areas you identify and provide a detailed estimate.
Large loss restoration often involves extensive construction after all contaminated materials have been removed. 5 Star Restoration Specialists have handled large loss projects for over 10 years and we believe our system leads to the best results possible for property owners in Illinois.
It's important to choose restoration specialists that provide complete support through every step of the project. During the construction phase, we start with a complete assessment of the property. It's crucial to ensure that all areas are dry and free of mold. Then, we work to assess the damage and prioritize the restoration phase to make your building safe and inviting once more.
There are several advantages to working with licensed contractors. Unlicensed contractors may not have liability or workers' compensation insurance. That means that if someone working on your property sustains an injury, you could potentially face a liability risk. So, choose a licensed contractor and ask to see a copy of their active insurance policy.

Get Emergency Large Loss Help from Our Team
You can rely on 5 Star Restoration Specialists to come through when it comes to large loss water damage. By providing immediate water extraction, concentrating on mold and safety for falling, removing debris, and ensuring structural integrity, we worked methodically but quickly to secure and restore your commercial space or multi-family building.
Immediate Water Extraction
It's important to remove the water from your commercial property to preserve possessions and safeguard the health of building occupants. In fact, your insurance company may deny your claim if you don't respond with the appropriate urgency.
Mold and Safety for Falling
Put safety first if you happen to visit the property. Remember that floors will be slippery and pose a fall hazard. Additionally, if mold has already started to form, it's important to wear the proper personal protective gear to prevent health problems associated with inhaling mold spores.
Safety is our top priority when the assessment or remediation teams enter the site.
Debris Removal and Structural Instability
It's important to remove debris as quickly as possible. However, we don't advise that property owners do this on their own. Flooding can damage the walls and foundations by applying hydrostatic pressure. So, the structure might not be safe without additional structural support. You can rely on our specialist to take the appropriate steps to secure the property, including removing debris and shoring up any areas that seem unsafe.
