Our 7-Step Burst Pipe Water Damage Cleanup Process for Lake Forest Residents

1. Water Damage Inspection

Our process starts with a complete inspection of the water damage in your Lake Forest home or business.

After a careful assessment of affected areas, we present you with our cleanup and restoration plan. With your approval, our teams immediately begin working on water-damaged interiors.

2. Standing Water Extraction

We quickly pump out standing water with specialized truck-mounted extraction equipment. Using advanced vacuuming tools, our technicians remove all traces of residual water.

We also reduce indoor humidity and begin the drying process by running industrial-grade desiccant dehumidifiers.

3. Initial Cleanup and Tear-Out

Next, we mitigate the water damage so that it doesn’t spread. We remove ruined carpeting and crumbled drywall. Tear-out often includes pulling up buckled flooring and taking down water-damaged ceilings.

As we work, our technicians haul off and dispose of unsalvageable materials, clearing the way for remediation.

4. Deep Structural Drying

Our water mitigation process includes deep structural drying, which eliminates moisture from porous materials, such as wood framing, support beams and drywall.

We take care of this step with heavy-duty equipment. Our teams set up and closely monitor centrifugal air movers, axial fans and wood floor drying systems.

5. Certified Mold Removal

Mold spreads through water-damaged materials within 24 hours of a plumbing breakdown.

Using the latest techniques, we remove unhealthy fungal growth, eliminate the stains it leaves behind and finish with industry-certified mold remediation.

6. Pre-Restoration Cleaning

This phase readies interiors for restoration. Our technicians scrub down all surfaces with highly effective cleaning products. We go over each area again with specialized sanitizing, disinfecting and deodorizing agents.

7. Expert Interior Restoration

During final restoration, your water-damaged property is returned to its pre-loss condition. Torn-out walls are replaced, buckled floors are repaired, and collapsed ceilings are rebuilt. We apply years of restoration expertise to finishing the details, from crown molding to baseboards and trim.

After our teams take care of post-restoration cleanup, we accompany you on a walk-through inspection. We only consider our work finished when we have your complete approval.

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!
