Our 7-Step Emergency Flood Cleanup Process for Riverwoods, IL Residents

1. Immediate Damage Inspection

We start with an immediate inspection of your Riverwoods home or business. Our teams assess factors such as depth of any standing water, condition of interiors and structural stability.

If necessary, we secure the property by boarding up windows and tarping the roof.

2. Action Plan Consultation

Our damage assessment serves as the framework for developing a restoration action plan. We share the details with you, including what to expect from each step during our process.

Your input is welcomed, and we’re glad to answer any questions.

3. Property-Wide Water Removal

With your go-ahead, we begin cleanup by removing standing water and residual moisture.

Our truck-mounted extraction systems quickly take care of flooded basements, crawl spaces and wall voids. We pull water from carpets and flooring with advanced vacuuming equipment.

4. Material Tear-Out and Disposal

Next, we tear out ruined interior materials, including drywall, ceilings and floors. Our teams haul off unsalvageable carpets, furnishings, appliances and general debris. Everything is properly disposed of following all local regulations.

5. Deep Structural Drying

As we prep interiors for remediation, we make sure structural components are dry. Our technicians set up and run centrifugal air movers, axial fans and desiccant dehumidifiers, carefully monitoring the drying process.

6. Water Damage Remediation

Once the drying process is completed, our teams finalize the cleanup phase. We hand-scrub all surfaces with safe, effective cleaning products, and then follow up with sanitizing and disinfecting agents.

Our specialized deodorizing techniques restore indoor air quality property-wide. We also clean up and eliminate mold growth using industry-certified removal and remediation techniques.

7. Detailed Property Restoration

Now that your property is thoroughly cleaned and dried, we restore all flood-damaged interiors. Our teams replace buckled floors, rebuild crumbled walls and repair collapsed ceilings. We do everything with a professional eye for detail, from molding and baseboards to framing and trim.

When we’re finished, we accompany you on an inspection and answer any final questions. When we have your complete approval of the results, we consider our work a success.

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.
