Our 7-Step Emergency Flood Cleanup Process for Palatine

2. Restoration Action Plan

Next, we consolidate our assessment into an action plan for restoring your flood-damaged property. This includes an estimated timeline for project completion. With your input and approval, we get started right away.

3. Emergency Water Extraction

Our technicians immediately pump out standing floodwater with highly efficient, truck-mounted extraction equipment. We take care of residual water using specialized vacuuming tools.

This critical step ensures complete water removal, even from basements and crawls spaces, and it clears the way for safely beginning our tear-out phase.

4. Debris and Tear-Out Disposal

Property flooding from a storm or plumbing disaster leaves behind multiple types of debris. As we clean it all up, we tear out water-damaged materials that can’t be restored.

From crumbled drywall and collapsed ceiling tiles to ruined flooring and carpets, our teams clear out everything for safe disposal, following all city codes.

5. Expedited Structural Drying

Our structural drying techniques significantly reduce the time it takes to normalize interior humidity. We use heavy-duty axial fans, centrifugal air movers and specialized dehumidifiers to eliminate moisture from structural materials.

Our technicians closely monitor progress during this step with thermo hygrometers, moisture meters and hydro sensors.

6. Flood Remediation and Mold Removal

Flood remediation is a combination of deep cleaning and reconstruction. We hand-scrub surfaces with specially formulated products and finish by sanitizing, disinfecting and deodorizing affected areas.

Mold is a common type of secondary water damage. We eliminate it using industry-certified removal and remediation techniques that remove all fungal growth, including toxic black mold.

7. Complete Flood Damage Restoration

During this final phase, we rebuild, replace and restore flood damaged interiors. Walls, floors and ceilings are reconstructed. Our teams finish each area with professional attention to detail.

When we’re done, we take care of final cleanup and invite you to inspect our work. We don’t consider the job done until 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.
