Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Arlington Heights Residents

1. Water Damage Assessment

We begin our process with an immediate assessment of water-damaged interiors and contents. We identify areas that need tear-out and belongings that can’t be salvaged.

Using humidity meters and thermal-imaging cameras, our technicians also identify hidden water damage inside walls and floors. We address structural hazards, such as buckled ceilings, and establish a safe working environment.

2. Restoration Plan and Consultation

Based on our findings, we outline a restoration plan for your Arlington Heights property and explain each step so that you know what to expect. During the consultation, we answer any questions you might have and discuss your concerns.

3. Water Removal and Mitigation

Depending on the situation, we take care of water removal with specialized equipment. For example, our truck-mounted extraction equipment is highly effective in flooded basements, while we use advanced vacuuming tools to remove residual water. This initial mitigation work contains the damage and prevents it from spreading.

4. Debris Cleanup and Disposal

Extensive water damage often leaves behind general debris and unsalvageable materials, such as crumbled drywall and ruined carpets. Our teams haul everything off for safe disposal, adhering to all city regulations.

5. Applied Structural Drying

Throughout the mitigation phase, we run and closely monitor industrial-grade structural drying equipment. Our axial fans, centrifugal air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers greatly reduce the time needed to completely dry interiors.

6. Water Damage Remediation

With this step, our teams prepare your home or business for restoration.

Using safe, effective products, we scrub down surfaces and follow up with industry-proven sanitizing and deodorizing techniques. We also remove and remediate any mold from affected materials.

7. Final Restoration and Inspection

Our teams finish the restoration process by rebuilding walls, replacing floors and repairing ceilings. From baseboards and trim to crown molding, every detail is returned to its pre-loss condition.

We give all interiors a final cleanup, and then accompany you on a walk-through inspection. When we have your approval of our work, we consider the job a success.

While we were out of town our vanity mirror fell and turned on our sink faucet. Water was running for days, we're not sure when it happened, the fire department was alerted when the house sensors got wet and set off the alarms. our neighbor came over when she saw the fire department. We were called immediately. Our agent highly recommended neil at service master. He came out with a huge team and a general manager. I felt very comfortable with him and all office staff to get the job done while we were still out of town. My neighbor checked in on them until we returned. 80% of my entire house was gutted. I have a lot of custom wall paneling, crown molding and trim. They were able to save it all. They also did my packout and duct work cleaning. Everyone at service master was extremely knowledgeable and professionaland very helpful.

I had a burst pipe in the middle of the night and one of my guest rooms was damaged. Service Master was able to get a crew to me first thing in the morning. Everyone was super helpful and treated my home as if it was their own while doing the necessary work.

A week after I purchased this property it flooded with 12 inches of water. The previous owner left the basement full of stuff that was ruined by the flood. It was all getting thrown away but now the process was even harder.  My State Farm insurance agent had a Servicemaster rep give me a call because I wanted to opt out of flood insurance.  It was only a courtesy call to explain the process of mitigating and repairing a flooded basement.  I reluctantly signed up for flood insurance just in case....Oh man I am glad I did; this flood situation was a nightmare, and the additional expenses would have been devastating if I didn't have insurance.  I immediately called them after all my failed attempts of trying to get the water out.  That 15 minute-call saved me thousands of dollars.  Servicemaster by zaba rocks! the team was great and they saved me a huge headache. I highly recommend them and I am so grateful for my State Farm agent.
