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.

7. Complete Water Damage Restoration

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.

We Restore Water-Damaged Basements

A flooded basement is a homeowner’s nightmare. Whether it’s caused by storm flooding, burst pipes or broken appliances, we handle it. We immediately address the situation with our truck-mounted extraction system that quickly pumps out all standing water.

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.

Our mold removal process cleans up all fungal growth. Our remediation process makes sure it doesn’t return. We restore the healthy interiors and indoor air quality you expect in your home or at the workplace.

UPDATEI had ServiceMaster out again after the July 2, 2023 sewer back ups in the city. The crew came back out and quickly dried and cleaned/disinfected my basement and returned twice to ensure everything was completed to my satisfaction. Everyone was a complete professional and they explain every step of the way, from the office staff to the cleaning crew and follow up representatives the sent. I highly recommend them.Neil and the crew really know there job. They are professional, fast, reliable, courteous, and very sympathetic. They work well with the insurance company which helps immensely when dealing with an emergency. Highly recommended!!!

Fernando and his team "hand held" my situation from the moment I called him to report the incident. Fernando was EXTREMELY helpful in guiding me with what to discard, how to value the lost items, how to present the same to my insurance adjustor and sharing his own personal experience with the process. Every time I contacted him with questions during the process he again was informative, patient and continued to provide guidance. On the day my personal property was delivered his staff was uber professional (laid contractor paper on the new floors, asked for placement of furniture, etc. ) and even removed an old wine refrigerator from the rental unit where I was residing). I will share my positive review with my insurance agent and the adjuster. In todays "new" world of difficulty with expected customer service (and lack thereof) Fernando and his team were a pleasant surprise. I do hope I never have to use his services again (lol) however if I do I know I will be satisfied.

I have a rental property in Lake Forest and the renters were vacationing last week. The temperatures dropped and warmed up and when they got back the house was flooded due to a pipe that burst in the ceiling. I immediately called ServiceMaster by Zaba in Chicago and they came out within the day to clean up the mess and dry everything out. I definitely would recommend them to anyone who's experiencing water damage in their homes!

Had a small kitchen fire. Luckily I was able to extinguish it myself but it left a big mess in my kitchen and entire apartment. ServiceMaster cleaned it out and within 48 hours they got rid of the soot/smoke smell and had cleaned the entire apartment from soot residue. Highly recommend them.

Service master provided me with excellent customer service. They responded quickly to my water issues and answered all my questions and concerns in a professional manner. I never experienced this type of home issue before and they were able to fix my water problems without adding additional stress. I would definitely recommend this company to any person experiencing water damage in their home. In today’s day it is very difficult to find a trustworthy and reliable company that can do a good job. Service Master is definitely the company to call in a water home emergency. I would definitely use them again for any future restoration issues.

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.
