When water damage hits your commercial property, you’re facing the loss of valuable equipment, vital records and expensive inventory. We salvage and pack out electronics, paperwork and contents.

Hazardous Category 3 Water Cleanup

Natural storm flooding pushes hazardous black water into Chicago homes and businesses. Problems with the city’s aging infrastructure cause dangerous sewage backups. A simple toilet overflow fills the bathroom with contaminated water.

We address all types of Category 3 water damage in residential and commercial properties. Our technicians are specially trained in cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing interiors impacted by black water. These services are always available through our 24/7 response protocols.

Mold growth takes hold in water-damaged materials in as little as 24 hours. It spreads quickly, carried by airborne spores that settle behind walls, overhead in ceilings and underneath flooring. Our restoration services include industry-certified mold removal and remediation.

Using advanced equipment, we identify exactly where mold is growing and how far it’s spread. We eliminate all fungal growth with specialized products and techniques. Our services include toxic black mold removal and remediation.

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.

I had a burst pipe in the middle of the night and one of my guest rooms was damaged. Service Master was able to get a crew to me first thing in the morning. Everyone was super helpful and treated my home as if it was their own while doing the necessary work.

A week after I purchased this property it flooded with 12 inches of water. The previous owner left the basement full of stuff that was ruined by the flood. It was all getting thrown away but now the process was even harder.  My State Farm insurance agent had a Servicemaster rep give me a call because I wanted to opt out of flood insurance.  It was only a courtesy call to explain the process of mitigating and repairing a flooded basement.  I reluctantly signed up for flood insurance just in case....Oh man I am glad I did; this flood situation was a nightmare, and the additional expenses would have been devastating if I didn't have insurance.  I immediately called them after all my failed attempts of trying to get the water out.  That 15 minute-call saved me thousands of dollars.  Servicemaster by zaba rocks! the team was great and they saved me a huge headache. I highly recommend them and I am so grateful for my State Farm agent.

Gold Coast Weather Forecast

What is the average cost of water damage restoration in Gold Coast?

Water damage restoration in Gold Coast costs between $3,000 and $8,000. An estimate is usually determined by the total square footage of water-damaged areas in a property.

What can add to the cost of restoring a water-damaged property?

The final cost can be higher than average if: damage is the result of Category 3 water; materials were exposed to water for more than 24 hours; structural damage is extensive; and contents and belongings are heavily water-damaged.

What can I do before your water damage teams arrive?

If you can do so safely, turn off the electricity coming into the water-damaged areas. Document the damage to interiors and belongings with photos and videos. Don’t throw away items that can’t be saved until after the adjuster’s inspection.

Will homeowners insurance cover my property’s water damage?

The short answer is yes. As long as the damage wasn’t the result of neglect or faulty installation, you should be covered. However, homeowners insurance doesn’t cover natural flooding. Check with your agent, and ask about purchasing protection through the National Flood Insurance Program.
