Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Riverwoods Residents

1. Inspection and Assessment

water damage inspection riverwoods

We begin with a property-wide inspection of your Riverwoods home or business. Our teams assess the damage to interiors and contents, including furnishings and belongings. If needed, we can tarp the roof and board up windows.

2. Restoration Plan and Consultation

Using our assessment, we draw up a plan for restoring interiors and addressing water-damaged contents. We share this action plan with you and answer any questions you might have. Your input is important to us.

3. Immediate Water Removal

Our advanced truck-mounted extraction systems quickly remove standing water from flooded areas, such as basements, crawl spaces, laundry rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. We take care of residual water in salvageable carpets and floors with heavy-duty vacuuming equipment.

4. Highly Efficient Structural Drying

Next, our technicians set up specialized equipment designed to dry structural materials and restore indoor air quality. This is done with floor drying systems, axial air blowers, centrifugal air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers.

5. Mitigation and Tear-Out

6. Disinfection and Remediation

All surfaces, including walls, floors and ceilings, are deep cleaned with safe effective products. We go over everything a second time with disinfecting agents and restore indoor air quality with specialized deodorizing techniques.

7. Property Restoration

With this last step, we return your water-damaged home or business to its pre-loss condition. Our teams finalize structural repairs and rebuild interiors. Floors, walls and ceilings are finished and detailed with professional expertise.

When we’re done, we ask you to inspect our work. When we have your approval, we consider the job 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.
