Our 7-Step Emergency Flood Cleanup Process for Highland Park

1. Flood Damage Assessment

Our teams arrive at your flooded home or business, fully equipped and ready to work. We quickly inspect the property and assess the full extent of damage.

If necessary, we board up broken windows and tarp storm-damaged roofs.

2. Action Plan Outline

Based on our damage assessment, we outline a plan for each phase of cleanup and restoration, as well as a proposed timetable for job completion.

We review our action plan with you so that you know what to expect during each step of the process. Our teams appreciate your input and address any concerns you may have.

3. Immediate Floodwater Extraction

Floodwater removal begins immediately. Our extraction systems are heavy-duty, truck-mounted and highly efficient. This step quickly removes water from basements, crawlspaces and other flooded areas.

After pumping out standing water, we take care of residual water with specialized vacuum equipment.

4. Emergency Damage Mitigation

Next, we clear out debris and contain secondary damages. Our emergency mitigation includes addressing structural issues, such as crumbling drywall, buckled ceilings and warped flooring.

As our technicians work, they identify salvageable contents that can be cleaned on-site or packed out for restoration and storage at our climate-controlled facilities.

5. Monitored Structural Drying

During the mitigation phase, our teams set up and monitor industrial-grade drying equipment. Centrifugal air movers and axial fans run 24/7.

Our arsenal of drying equipment includes high-volume dehumidifiers and hardwood floor drying systems. We closely track the drying process using electromagnetic sensors and advanced moisture detectors.

6. Pre-Restoration Remediation

Our flood damage remediation process preps all affected interiors for final restoration.

Surfaces are rigorously cleaned and sanitized, using safe, effective products. We also use special mold removal techniques that eliminate all fungal growth and deodorizing techniques that renew indoor air quality.

7. Detailed Property Flood Restoration

With this last step, our technicians restore your Highland Park property to its pre-flood condition. We replace torn-out walls, collapsed ceilings and flood-damaged floors. Everything, from baseboards to trim, is taken care of with professional attention to detail.

When we’re done, we ask you to take a close look at our work. When we have your final approval, we thank you for the opportunity to have made a positive difference.

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.
