Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Harwood Heights Residents

bathroom water damage cleanup1. Water Damage Inspection

Our teams arrive at your Harwood Heights home or business within 90 minutes of your call.

We immediately inspect all water-damaged interiors, furnishings and contents.

Our technicians use thermal-imaging infrared cameras and advanced humidity meters to detect hidden water damage.

2. Action Plan and Consultation

Based on the results of our inspection, we quickly develop a restoration action plan.

We share this with you so that you have an overview of what to expect. Our water damage professionals address your concerns and answer your questions. We want you to be comfortable with the process.

3. Extraction and Mitigation

Our teams begin water removal with powerful truck-mounted extraction systems. We take care of residual water with industrial-grade vacuuming equipment.

Our mitigation techniques contain the water damage and reduce secondary damages, such as mold growth and wood rot.

4. Monitored Structural Drying

Water damage mitigation includes drying out all affected areas. Our technicians expedite this step by setting up floor drying systems, high-volume air movers, aerodynamic axial fans and special dehumidifiers.

We carefully monitor the drying process over the next several days.

5. Damaged Material Tear-Out

During this last phase of mitigation, we tear out materials that can’t be salvaged. For example, soaked drywall, soggy carpets and warped flooring must be removed and hauled off. Our teams strictly follow city regulations for proper disposal of water-damaged materials.

6. Cleanup and Remediation

Next, we clean all affected areas, including walls, ceilings and floors, using industry-approved techniques. Cleaning is followed by a sanitizing, disinfecting and deodorizing process that refreshes interiors and renews indoor air quality

7. Final Water Damage Restoration

Our teams finish up by replacing torn-out walls, floors and ceilings. Our certified technicians address every detail, from cabinets and countertops to baseboards and trim.

When we’re finished, your home or business is returned to its pre-loss condition: safe, clean and completely restored.

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.

How much does water damage restoration cost in Harwood Heights?

The average cost of water damage restoration in Harwood Heights ranges from $3,000 to $8,000. An estimate is typically based on the total square footage of areas impacted by the water damage.

What can increase the cost of water damage restoration?

Multiple factors that can increase the average cost include: Category 3 water cleanup; extensive structural damage; water damage not addressed for 24 hours or longer; and heavily damaged furnishings and contents.

What should I do immediately after water damages my property?

Always put personal safety first. If possible, shut down electricity to the water-damaged areas. Document affected interiors and contents by taking pictures. Don’t dispose of anything until after your insurance adjuster has completed his or her inspection.

Does homeowners insurance cover all property water damage?

Yes, with two exceptions. Homeowners insurance doesn’t cover water damages caused by neglected plumbing repairs or shoddy installation. It also doesn’t cover damages resulting from a natural flood event. Speak with your insurance agent about purchasing a flood policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.
