Our 7-Step Water Leak Damage Cleanup Process for Morton Grove Residents
1. Assessment and Action Plan
With one call, our teams are on the way to your door. We arrive at your home or place of business within 90 minutes, fully equipped and ready to get to work.
We quickly inspect the water damage caused by the plumbing emergency. Based on our findings, we outline and share our action plan for cleaning and restoring your property.
2. Immediate Water Extraction
Our water extraction systems are highly effective in all situations. Working with advanced truck-mounted equipment, we pump burst pipe water out of basements and remove standing water in crawlspaces.
Our technicians also use industrial-grade vacuuming systems to remove residual water from salvageable materials, such as carpeting, area rugs and upholstery.
3. Initial Cleanup and Mitigation
Ruptured pipes often ruin drywall and buckle ceilings. Our teams clean up wet debris and soaked materials, and we take care of proper disposal. We secure the area as needed, making sure interiors are safe as we continue to mitigate the water damage.
4. Deep Structural Drying
An important part of water damage mitigation involves drying out any traces of water trapped inside building materials. This prevents residual moisture from compromising the structural integrity of walls, ceilings and floors.
Our industrial-grade drying equipment includes wood floor and subfloor drying systems, axial fans, centrifugal air movers and heavy-duty desiccant dehumidifiers. We carefully monitor the ongoing drying process.
5. Water & Flood Damage Restoration
This step clears the way for final water damage restoration work. Our technicians thoroughly clean, sanitize and deodorize all interior surfaces. Our in-place drying equipment remains in operation until we confirm normal indoor air humidity.
6. Certified Mold Removal
As our teams clean and disinfect, we keep a close eye out for any signs of fungal growth. As needed, we apply our highly specialized mold elimination and remediation techniques. Our industry-proven mold removal process is effective even against toxic black mold resulting from pipe leaks deep inside walls.
7. Property-Wide Restoration
This last phase returns interiors to their condition before the plumbing emergency. We rebuild walls, replace floors and repair ceilings. Our water damage pros pay close attention to all the details, from trim and baseboards to paneling, framing and wainscoting.
When we’re done, we ask you to inspect our work. With your final approval, we consider the project a success.

Here in Morton Grove, pipes commonly freeze and burst during cold Chicago winters. Pipe leakage also results from corrosion, rusted components and aging equipment. Shifting soil and tree roots cause pipe breaks too.
Most homeowners insurance and business property insurance policies cover the water damage from broken pipes. However, it doesn’t necessarily cover the cost of the pipe repair. Check with your carrier so that you understand your policy details.
