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

This is the second time I've used ServiceMaster. I needed the walls and ceiling in my kitchen to be removed due to a water leak from the unit above me. They were super cautious of my furniture and covered everything with plastic. I hired them to do my reconstruction as well and am extremely happy with my new cabinets!

I had 4 inches of standing water in my basement. ServiceMaster was able to pump all the water out of the basement and cleaned and sanitized my floors and walls. I’m extremely impressed by how quick they worked and how clean they left my basement!

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.
