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.

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.

I had a burst pipe in the middle of the night and one of my guest rooms was damaged. Service Master was able to get a crew to me first thing in the morning. Everyone was super helpful and treated my home as if it was their own while doing the necessary work.

A week after I purchased this property it flooded with 12 inches of water. The previous owner left the basement full of stuff that was ruined by the flood. It was all getting thrown away but now the process was even harder.  My State Farm insurance agent had a Servicemaster rep give me a call because I wanted to opt out of flood insurance.  It was only a courtesy call to explain the process of mitigating and repairing a flooded basement.  I reluctantly signed up for flood insurance just in case....Oh man I am glad I did; this flood situation was a nightmare, and the additional expenses would have been devastating if I didn't have insurance.  I immediately called them after all my failed attempts of trying to get the water out.  That 15 minute-call saved me thousands of dollars.  Servicemaster by zaba rocks! the team was great and they saved me a huge headache. I highly recommend them and I am so grateful for my State Farm agent.
