Our 7-Step Pipe Leak Damage Cleanup Process for Des Plaines Residents

When you need professional cleanup and restoration after a plumbing emergency, you want to know what to expect. We understand. Our cleanup process follows these seven steps.

1. Assessment, Repairs and Action Plan

First, we quickly assess the extent of the pipe water damage. This gives us the information we need to draw up an action plan for cleaning and restoring your property.


Our water damage technicians can fix small pipe leaks and breaks, but we recommend bringing in licensed plumbing professionals for large or complicated repairs.

2. Emergency Water Extraction

Next, we extract standing water with advanced truck-mounted pump systems. The equipment is especially effective for removing water from flooded basements and subfloors.

Our teams follow up with specialized vacuuming techniques that take care of residual water in carpets and flooring.

3. Pipe Water Damage Mitigation

Crumbling drywall and collapsed ceiling tiles are examples of the soggy debris left behind after a plumbing emergency. We mitigate the situation by managing safety issues, clearing out affected interiors and containing the water damage.

4. Applied Structural Drying

In order to speed up the drying process, we set up industrial-grade equipment that continually circulates fresh air through interiors damaged by the pipe water emergency.

Our structural drying techniques are maximized by centrifugal air movers, axial fans and desiccant dehumidifiers.

5. Pipe Leak Damage Remediation

Our water damage remediation sets the stage for final reconstruction and restoration. We tear out and dispose of materials that can’t be salvaged, such as ruined drywall and soaked carpeting.

All remaining porous and non-porous surfaces are scrubbed with industry-approved products. This intensive cleaning is followed by disinfecting and deodorizing all affected areas.

6. Highly Effective Mold Remediation burst-pipes-restoration-des-plaines

Mold removal and remediation are critical steps in cleaning up after burst pipe water damage. We use industry-certified techniques to eliminate the fungus. Our remediation process ensures the mold doesn’t return.

7. Property-Wide Restoration and Final Cleaning

During this last step, our teams replace water-damaged floors, ceilings and walls. We take care of every detail, from baseboards and crown molding to window and door casings.

When the work is complete, interiors at your home or workplace are restored to their pre-loss condition. With your inspection and final approval, we consider the job a success.

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.
