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.

This is the second time I've used ServiceMaster. I needed the walls and ceiling in my kitchen to be removed due to a water leak from the unit above me. They were super cautious of my furniture and covered everything with plastic. I hired them to do my reconstruction as well and am extremely happy with my new cabinets!

I had 4 inches of standing water in my basement. ServiceMaster was able to pump all the water out of the basement and cleaned and sanitized my floors and walls. I’m extremely impressed by how quick they worked and how clean they left my basement!

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.
