Wayne and his team did a professional and thorough job and were a pleasure to work with every step of the way.  They made a very difficult situation a little more bearable.  We would gladly engage US Restoration again should the need arise as they are an extremely professional and well run organization.

In October 2018, a major warehouse fire happened in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.  It is estimated that 20,000 gallons of Quincy Oil burned for over 6 hours, until the seventeen responding fire units were able to spray over 1400 gallons of foam to put out the fire.  One might not think that a restoration specialist from Abita Springs, Louisiana would be called in to complete this Illinois fire restoration service, but that’s exactly what happened.

The massive fire caused extensive damage to the building.  As a part of the loss, approximately 30,000 square feet of the Main Warehouse required selective demolition due to damage.  But much of the structure was only affected by severe smoke damage, and it could be saved through diligent and careful cleaning.

US Restoration was able to complete this job by breaking it up into two (2) phases:

The initial Phase #1 for this fire and smoke remediation started 10/31/18 and completed 11/28/18.  We used more than 40 US Restoration, LLC Trained and Qualified Remediation Technicians. This phase included the Main Office area and Front Production area that received moderate to heavy smoke damage.  In less than four weeks, US Restoration and several other contractors were able to clean and repair this section so that the facility was able to conduct limited operations.

US Restoration, LLC returned to this project for Phase #2 on 2/10/19 after selective demolition was completed to the Main Warehouse. During this phase USR worked in record breaking cold and snow the entire time. This phase was completed of all fire and smoke remediation on 3/9/19.

Our coordinated efforts working this project allowed us to complete this project in a total of 8 weeks. USR and its dedicated staff received high regards from the Insured for our professionalism and our safety practices.  Given the amount of carcinogens left behind by the fire, the record setting cold weather, and the work that had to be done high up in the air there were many risks to site workers at all times.
