Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Avondale, Chicago Residents

1. Immediate Damage Inspection

water damage inspection

We begin with an inspection to determine the extent of damages to your home or business.

Our teams secure the property as needed and address any structural issues and safety hazards.

2. Assessment and Action Plan

Next, we draw up a comprehensive action plan and estimated timetable for each restoration phase. We want you to know what to expect, and we welcome any questions you might have.

3. Water Removal and Mitigation

Standing water is quickly removed using advanced truck-mounted extraction systems. Mitigation includes clearing out debris, containing secondary water damages and starting the drying process.

4. Unsalvageable Material Tear-Out

Often, soaked drywall, ceilings and carpets can’t be salvaged. Our teams tear out and haul off ruined materials and content. This clears the way for water damage remediation and restoration.

5. Property-Wide Structural Drying

This part of the mitigation process significantly reduces property-wide drying time. We set up industrial-grade dehumidifiers, centrifugal air movers and aerodynamic axial fans.

6. Water Damage Cleanup and Remediation

Our technicians clean, sanitize and deodorize interiors, using the latest equipment and safest products. We also clean salvageable personal belongings at your home and business contents at your workplace.

7. Complete Interior Restoration

Floors, subflooring, ceilings and walls are repaired and restored. Our attention to detail includes cabinets, window and door frames, baseboards, trim and wainscoting.

We finish with property-wide cleanup that completely restores your home or business to its pre-loss condition. We don’t consider our job done until we have your final approval.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Water Damage

Fortunately, water damage doesn’t impact a home or business very often. When it does happen, it’s very stressful. These suggestions make it a little easier to deal with the situation.

Water Damage Do’s

  • Do stay safe. Shut down circuit breakers that supply electricity to the affected areas. If you can’t access the breaker box safely, call a licensed electrician.
  • Do contact your insurance company. Give them as much information as you can, and arrange for an adjuster’s inspection. Document water-damaged interiors and contents with photos and videos.
  • Do call a professional water damage restoration company. Secondary damages, such as structural instability and mold growth, develop very quickly. Our technicians can be there in 90 minutes or less.
  • Do open windows, and let fresh air circulate throughout wet interiors. Open closets, cabinets and drawers. Turn on any fans you might have, but only in areas where the electricity supply is safe.

Water Damage Don’ts

  • Don’t try to remove standing water with a regular vacuum cleaner. If you have a wet vac, don’t use it unless you’re sure there are no electrical hazards in the water-damaged areas.
  • Don’t ignore the danger of sagging ceilings or water dripping through overhead fixtures. Stay clear of these areas until our technicians stabilize the scene.
  • Don’t attempt to use appliances or electronic equipment while standing on wet floors or carpets. Wait until our restoration teams inspect the property and give the all-clear.
  • Don’t throw away anything before the insurance adjuster’s inspection. Leave everything as is so that he or she can assess the full extent of your property’s water damage and your losses.

UPDATEI had ServiceMaster out again after the July 2, 2023 sewer back ups in the city. The crew came back out and quickly dried and cleaned/disinfected my basement and returned twice to ensure everything was completed to my satisfaction. Everyone was a complete professional and they explain every step of the way, from the office staff to the cleaning crew and follow up representatives the sent. I highly recommend them.Neil and the crew really know there job. They are professional, fast, reliable, courteous, and very sympathetic. They work well with the insurance company which helps immensely when dealing with an emergency. Highly recommended!!!

Fernando and his team "hand held" my situation from the moment I called him to report the incident. Fernando was EXTREMELY helpful in guiding me with what to discard, how to value the lost items, how to present the same to my insurance adjustor and sharing his own personal experience with the process. Every time I contacted him with questions during the process he again was informative, patient and continued to provide guidance. On the day my personal property was delivered his staff was uber professional (laid contractor paper on the new floors, asked for placement of furniture, etc. ) and even removed an old wine refrigerator from the rental unit where I was residing). I will share my positive review with my insurance agent and the adjuster. In todays "new" world of difficulty with expected customer service (and lack thereof) Fernando and his team were a pleasant surprise. I do hope I never have to use his services again (lol) however if I do I know I will be satisfied.

I have a rental property in Lake Forest and the renters were vacationing last week. The temperatures dropped and warmed up and when they got back the house was flooded due to a pipe that burst in the ceiling. I immediately called ServiceMaster by Zaba in Chicago and they came out within the day to clean up the mess and dry everything out. I definitely would recommend them to anyone who's experiencing water damage in their homes!

Had a small kitchen fire. Luckily I was able to extinguish it myself but it left a big mess in my kitchen and entire apartment. ServiceMaster cleaned it out and within 48 hours they got rid of the soot/smoke smell and had cleaned the entire apartment from soot residue. Highly recommend them.

Service master provided me with excellent customer service. They responded quickly to my water issues and answered all my questions and concerns in a professional manner. I never experienced this type of home issue before and they were able to fix my water problems without adding additional stress. I would definitely recommend this company to any person experiencing water damage in their home. In today’s day it is very difficult to find a trustworthy and reliable company that can do a good job. Service Master is definitely the company to call in a water home emergency. I would definitely use them again for any future restoration issues.
