Our 7-Step Burst Pipe Water Damage Cleanup Process for Buffalo Grove Residents
1. Water Damage Inspection
Our process begins with a property-wide water damage inspection. As we assess the situation, we develop a plan for cleaning and restoring your Buffalo Grove home or business.
Our teams explain the details and answer any questions you might have.
2. Standing Water Extraction
Burst pipes often leave behind standing water that must be pumped out immediately. Our powerful truck-mounted extraction systems remove water from basements and crawlspaces quickly and efficiently.
We also take care of residual water with advanced vacuuming equipment.
3. Tear-Out and Mitigation
The aftermath of a plumbing breakdown leaves behind general debris, ruined materials and unsalvageable contents.
Our cleanup and tear-out work stops the water damage from spreading further. During this initial mitigation, we also start the drying process.
4. Deep Structural Drying
Structural drying is taken care of with heavy-duty equipment, including hardwood floor drying systems and centrifugal air movers. Our technicians monitor progress using thermal-imaging infrared cameras. We reduce interior moisture levels using desiccant dehumidifiers.
5. Certified Mold Removal
Water from burst pipes typically leaves behind unhealthy fungal growth in porous materials, especially wood and drywall.
We remove all types of mold from water-damaged homes and businesses, and we follow up with remediation techniques that ensure its complete elimination.
6. Pre-Restoration Cleaning
Before we begin with final restoration, our teams thoroughly clean walls, floors and ceilings.
We hand scrub surfaces using safe products, and then we sanitize and disinfect all interiors. This step includes deodorizing the entire property.
7. Expert Interior Restoration
Our teams finish up by completely restoring your home or business to its pre-loss condition. We rebuild torn-out drywall, repair collapsed ceilings and replace buckled flooring.
It’s all done with professional attention to the smallest detail, from baseboards to trim.
When we’re done, we ask you to inspect our work. With your final approval, we consider the job a success.
