Our 7-Step Plumbing Leak Cleanup Process for Riverwoods Residents

1. Immediate Damage Inspection

Upon arrival at your Riverwoods property, we immediately inspect all areas damaged by the burst or leaking pipes.

Based on our assessment, we quickly develop a restoration plan and share the details. You know what to expect, including our proposed timeline for job completion. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have.

2. Fast Water Extraction

Our teams get right to work, removing standing and residual water in all affected interiors.

Our truck-mounted extraction equipment pumps water out of basements, crawl spaces, subfloors and wall voids. We use industrial vacuuming tools to pull water out of soaked floors and carpets.

3. Tear-Out and Disposal

Next, we tear out structural materials that must be replaced. This includes ruined drywall, buckled flooring and damaged ceilings. As we work, we clear out general debris left behind by the plumbing breakdown.

Everything is properly disposed of according to Riverwoods municipal codes.

4. Complete Structural Drying

It’s very important to completely dry interiors, especially in areas behind walls and under floors.

Our technicians take care of this critical step with industrial-grade equipment, including centrifugal air movers, heavy-duty axial fans, hardwood floor drying systems and desiccant dehumidifiers.

5. Certified Mold Remediation

Mold grows quickly in water-damaged materials, especially porous drywall and ceiling tiles. As it spreads, it releases spores that contaminate indoor air quality.

We address the problem with highly effective, industry-certified mold removal and remediation techniques.

6. Cleaning, Sanitizing and Deodorizing

This step preps interiors for final restoration. Our teams use safe cleaning products to scrub down all surfaces. We go over everything again with industry-approved sanitizing and disinfecting agents.

Indoor air is refreshed property-wide with our specialized deodorizing process.

7. Expert Property Restoration

Now that your home or business is completely cleaned and dried, we complete the restoration process.

Our technicians replace walls, floors and ceilings. We tape, seal, sand, dust and paint. Every detail from baseboards to ceiling molding is taken care of with professional expertise.

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.

What do I do first when the pipes burst in my home or business?

Turn off the main water supply, clean up what you can, and call a licensed plumber. Contact your insurance agent and a professional restoration company, like ServiceMaster by Zaba. Take pictures of the damage to document your losses. If possible, open windows and run fans to jumpstart the drying process.

What is the average cost of pipe water damage cleanup in Riverwoods?

Expect to pay between $1,300 and $5,700 for water damage cleanup after a plumbing breakdown. The cost may be higher if the broken pipes caused property-wide flooding or caused extensive structural damage.

What are the most common reasons for pipe bursts and leaks in Riverwoods homes and businesses?

When a pipe bursts or begins leaking, it’s most often caused by freezing temperatures, shifts in the property’s foundation, extreme fluctuations in water pressure or general corrosion and aged-out components.

Does homeowners insurance cover the cost of cleaning up damage from a pipe leak?

In most situations, yes. Homeowners insurance covers the cost of water damage cleanup and restoration after a plumbing breakdown. Most business property insurance policies also cover the cost. The exceptions are shoddy repairs, maintenance or installation.
