Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Lincolnwood Residents

We begin our water damage restoration process with an inspection of your home or business. Our teams determine the extent of damages and address any safety issues, such as buckled ceilings or dangerous debris.

Based on our assessment, we develop a restoration action plan, share the details and answer your questions. We want you to know what to expect, including the scope of work and estimated time for job completion.

This step focuses on stopping the water damage from spreading any further. We use powerful truck-mounted systems to extract standing water and specialized vacuum equipment to remove residual water.
