1. Immediate Damage Inspection

Our technicians respond to your call with an arrival time of 90 minutes or less.

We also note any security issues, boarding up broken windows and doors if necessary.

After assessing the situation, we develop a strategy for containing the damage.

This action plan includes initial cleanup and tear-out work, flood damage remediation and final property restoration.

We consult with you, outlining our plan in detail. We welcome your input and answer all your questions.

3. Emergency Flood Water Extraction

Using truck-mounted extraction equipment, our teams immediately remove standing water from all areas affected by the property flood emergency.

We take care of residual water in carpets and flooring with industrial-grade vacuuming equipment.

Our extraction work is highly effective, allowing us to quickly move on to the next phase.

4. Water Damage Containment

Floodwater damage must be contained right away. We apply floodwater mitigation techniques that prevent its spread into adjacent areas of your Lake Bluff property.

For example, we tear out and dispose of soaked structural materials. As we work, our teams address any secondary water damage issues and identify areas that need mold remediation.

5. Property-Wide Structural Drying

In order to speed up the structural drying process, our technicians set up an array of industrial-grade equipment.

Heavy-duty air movers and axial fans operate 24/7. We use wood floor drying systems and desiccant dehumidifiers to remove all traces of residual moisture and bring indoor humidity levels back to normal.

6. Flood Damage Cleanup

During the flood damage cleanup phase, we treat all materials affected by mold. Our industry-certified removal process eliminates all fungal growth.

7. Complete Property Restoration

Our restoration work focuses on rebuilding torn-out walls and damaged floors. We replace all flood-damaged materials, including trim and molding. From window and door frames to baseboards and ceilings, our technicians restore your property to its pre-flood condition.

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.
