Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for River North Residents

gold coast water damage cleanup

1. Property Damage Inspection

Upon arrival, our teams inspect all affected areas in your home or business.

We assess the extent of water damage, and we identify issues that might not be visible, such as structural problems in walls and ceilings.

2. Action Plan Outline

Based on our water damage assessment, we outline a detailed action plan.

We share this with you so that you know what to expect. We want you to feel comfortable with the process, so we’re happy to answer all your questions.

3. Water Damage Mitigation

We put our water damage mitigation expertise to work right away. Our technicians extract standing water with advanced truck-mounted systems.

We take care of structural problems that might pose safety issues, and we clear the way for water damage remediation and restoration.

4. Expert Structural Drying

Property-wide structural drying is a critical part of the mitigation process. We set up heavy-duty air movers, axial fans and desiccant dehumidifiers. The industrial-grade drying equipment runs 24/7 for at least several days.

5. Damaged Material Tear-Out

This final phase of water damage mitigation addresses materials that can’t be salvaged.

Crumbling drywall, caved-in ceilings and buckled flooring are removed to make way for reconstruction. Material tear-out can include moldy carpeting, warped trim and water-damaged cabinets.

6. Water Damage Remediation

Next, we make sure affected areas are clean and free of biohazards. Our teams use specialized products to sanitize, disinfect and deodorize all surfaces. We also take care of mold removal and remediation.

7. Certified Water Damage Restoration

Once your property is thoroughly clean and dry, we begin repairs, replacements and restoration. For example, we secure structural framing, replace torn-out drywall and rebuild ruined floors and ceilings.

When we’re finished, your home or business is completely restored to its pre-loss condition. Your final approval is our assurance that we’ve also helped restore your peace of mind.

We Restore Water-Damaged Businesses

Water damage doesn’t have to shut down your business indefinitely.

Our water damage services for commercial properties include content pack-out and paper document restoration. From salvaging onsite inventory to cleaning office furniture, we take care of everything.

Our Expertise Includes Black Water Cleanup

Biohazards in black water pose serious health threats to everyone on the affected property. Salmonella, E. coli and norovirus are just a few examples of the pathogens present in highly contaminated water.

Our teams clean, disinfect and restore homes and businesses impacted by Category 3 water damage. We tackle all types of black water emergencies, including contamination from storm flooding and sewer backups.

We’re Certified in Mold Removal and Remediation

Water damage results in mold growth that permeates walls, floors, ceilings and even personal belongings. It quickly spreads and compromises interiors with unhealthy airborne spores.

Our water damage restoration services remove dangerous fungal growth from all affected areas, including basements, attics and even air ducts. Our certified remediation techniques make sure mold doesn’t return.

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.
