Join the community in planning for all forms of emergencies and disasters, as well as leading campaigns to inspire others to be more prepared. "Disasters" strike, wreaking havoc not just on individuals and towns, but also on whole communities. Discover how to be well-prepared.

Create a strategy and practice it. Do you have a plan for evacuating and sheltering in place? Do you have a strategy in place to stay in touch with your family before, after, and after an incident? Do you have a preparedness kit? Make sure the entire family is aware of your emergency plan and has followed it. To stay updated, sign up for local updates and warnings, as well as download other appropriate applications.

Learn how to save a life. Do you or a member of your family know how to perform CPR? Is it possible for you to shut off your natural gas if necessary? Do you know how to get to safety in the event of a disaster? Knowing these life-saving skills could mean the difference between life and death for you, your family, or your neighbors in an emergency.

The inconvenience to the guests, who are left with soot and smoke loss, is a challenge during a hotel fire reconstruction. Mitigation - Our technicians work to protect your hotel and prevent secondary harm from occurring. Board-ups, providing a temporary source of energy, and emergency drying of buildings that are wet during firefighting procedures are all examples of this. Structural Cleaning - Cleaning is one of the most time-consuming and labor-intensive phases in the restoration process. To clean the smoke and soot residues from your hotel, SERVPRO technicians use some of the best equipment and chemicals available. Rather than replacing it, our priority is to restore it. Contents Cleaning- SERVPRO experts will disinfect the contents of your hotel that have been polluted by smoke and soot. While some contents may be cleaned on-site, others can need to be relocated to a separate location for cleaning and reconstruction. While at our office cleaning site, we make certain that all contents are transported and cleaned properly. Specialty Restoration - Certain material, such as furniture, valuable artwork, or upholstery, requires professional cleaning.

SERVPRO of Naperville specializes in handing all damage to commercial properties including water damage, fire damage, mold, or even property damage after a storm. We understand that no matter what the damage is, it is a stressful time for you.

We are able to use a tool to assess the damage to your property and begin the mitigation process. This tool is a grading system. Commercial properties are graded on a scale from one to three based on size of affected area and extent of the damage that has been done.

Level 1:

level one commercial losses involve properties with affected areas of around 15,000 square feet give or take. Examples of a level one loss would include but not limit: small warehouses, small churches, or a stand-alone restaurant.

Level 2:

A level two loss is usually for affected areas of around 15,000 - 60,000 square feet. Examples could include small multi-family homes, medium size churches or schools, small shopping center, or medium size warehouse.

Level 3:

Level three commercial losses are properties of 60,000+ affected area. These may include, but are not limited to, large buildings such as hospitals, schools, warehouses.
