What Causes Pipe Bursts or Leaks in Chicago’s Gold Coast Homes?

  • Clogged Drain Lines – Clogs deep inside drain lines create backups that result in pipe leaks.
  • Pipe Seal Damage – Deteriorated seals around plumbing supply lines allow pipes to leak.
  • Age and Corrosion – Problems in older plumbing can result from corrosion buildup inside pipes.
  • Fluctuating Pressure – Constant pressure fluctuations hammer pipes and loosen connections.
  • Freezing Temperatures – Frozen water inside supply lines exert enormous pressure and cause burst pipes.

What Should You Do When You Have a Water Leak Emergency in Gold Coast?

1. Shut Down the Water Supply

Locate your property’s main water valve. Turn it off, and then open up all the faucets. This drains water out of the leaking or burst pipe, reducing the chances of further damage.

2. Check the Electricity

If you think the pipe leak may have compromised wiring, outlets or fixtures, shut down the electricity to affected areas. Don’t try to use appliances or electrical equipment until you’re sure of your personal safety.

Don’t take chances. If you have any doubts about the situation, call a licensed electrician.

3. Contact Your Insurance Company

Call your insurance company, and explain the situation. Let them know you’re dealing with a water damage emergency. Ask them to schedule an adjuster’s visit as soon as possible.

4. Call ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba

Leave everything in place so that the adjuster can clearly see the damages caused by the plumbing emergency.

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.
