2. Assessment and Action Plan

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.

3. Water Damage Mitigation

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.

4. Material Tear-Out and Disposal

Next, we remove unsalvageable materials, including crumbling drywall, soaked ceilings and ruined carpets. Our teams adhere to all city codes covering demolition and disposal. As we work, we identify and address secondary water damage.

5. Applied Structural Drying

We take care of structural drying using industrial-grade equipment. Our teams set up heavy-duty axial fans, high-volume air movers, hardwood floor drying systems and specialized desiccant dehumidifiers.

6. Cleanup, Sanitizing and Deodorizing

Water damage cleanup involves thoroughly scrubbing down all affected areas. We follow up with property-wide sanitizing and deodorizing procedures. Our water damage services also include eliminating mold with certified removal and remediation techniques.

Finally, we replace torn-out materials in ceilings, walls and floors. Our teams also clean salvageable personal items and business contents. We handle every restoration detail with professional pride. When we’re done, your property is restored to its pre-loss condition.

Water damage worsens with each second that passes by.

We Specialize in Category 3 Water Cleanup

Sewage backups and storm flooding cause a dangerous type of water damage. In both cases, the water is highly contaminated with pathogens and chemicals. Often called black water, it poses serious health risks. We specialize in cleaning up all types of Category 3 water damage.

Our technicians are industry-certified and highly experienced dealing with hazardous situations. We apply OSHA-compliant techniques to clean, sanitize and deodorize surfaces affected by Category 3 water. Our teams are on call 24/7 for this type of emergency.

Our teams take care of water-damaged basements in Lincolnwood homes and businesses, and we restore finished basements to their pre-loss condition. We also clean and recover salvageable contents stored in the basement.

Our Mold Remediation Services Are Industry-Certified

Mold is often an issue after water damage. It permeates porous materials, causes structural damage and generates unhealthy airborne spores. We solve mold problems, including toxic black mold, with industry-certified techniques.

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.

How to Protect Your Home from Water Damage

Flood Preparedness – Ready.gov

How much does water damage restoration cost in Lincolnwood?

The cost of cleaning up water damage in a Lincolnwood home averages between $3,000 and $8,000. Typically, the cost is based on total square footage of water-damaged areas.

Are there problems that add to the cost of water damage restoration?

Yes. Cleaning up Category 3 water impacts the final cost. Other factors that might affect cleanup costs include how long ago the water damaged occurred, the extent of mold growth and structural issues.

What should I do before water cleanup teams arrive?

If you can do so safely, turn off the electricity to water-damaged areas. Document your losses with photographs. Don’t dispose of ruined items until after the insurance adjuster makes an inspection.

Will homeowners insurance cover water damage to my property?

In most cases, yes. There are a few exceptions. For example, storm flooding isn’t covered by homeowners insurance. If a plumbing problem is determined to be the result of neglect, you may not be covered.
