Our 7-Step Burst Pipe Water Damage Cleanup Process for Vernon Hills Residents

1. Inspection and Damage Assessment

burst pipe vernon hills

We start with an inspection of the water damage in your Vernon Hills home or business.

Our teams assess the overall condition of interiors and develop a cleanup and restoration plan. We explain our course of action so that you know what to expect.

2. Immediate Water Extraction

Standing water is immediately removed with our advanced truck-mounted extraction systems. We take care of residual water in floors and carpets with heavy-duty vacuuming equipment.

Our industrial-grade dehumidifiers help restore indoor air quality throughout all affected areas.

3. Water Damage Mitigation

Burst or leaking pipes soak walls, floors and ceilings. Our mitigation work stops the damage from spreading. We tear out ruined materials, clean up general debris and gather up unsalvageable contents.

Everything is hauled away for off-site disposal, following all local regulations.

4. Monitored Structural Drying

Structural drying is a critical part of the mitigation process. Our technicians set up an array of equipment that significantly reduces the time needed to dry interiors.

As our floor drying systems, aerodynamic fans and centrifugal air movers do their work, we monitor the progress with thermal-imaging equipment and advanced hygrometers.

5. Certified Mold Removal

Mold growth is a type of secondary water damage that takes hold in porous materials.

The unhealthy fungus spreads through airborne spores, but we eliminate the problem with industry-proven techniques. Our mold removal process includes highly effective remediation that prevents its return.

6. Deep Cleaning and Disinfecting

This step sets the stage for final restoration. Our technicians scrub down all affected areas using safe, effective products. Every surface is deep cleaned a second time with specially formulated disinfecting agents. During this step, we also deodorize all interiors.

7. Complete Water Damage Restoration

Our teams complete the job by rebuilding walls, repairing ceilings and replacing floors. This final restoration phase returns every interior detail to its pre-loss condition. When we’re done, we ask you to inspect the results.

With your final approval, we thank you, knowing our work has restored your property and your peace of mind.

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.

Water damage cleanup after a burst or leaking pipe costs between $1,300 and $5,700. Average costs may be higher if the plumbing breakdown caused property-wide damage, extensive structural damage or Category 3 water contamination.

What should I do first when a pipe bursts in my home or business?

Shut down your property’s water supply at the main cut-off valve. Call a plumber and your insurance company. Contact a certified water damage restoration company, like ServiceMaster by Zaba. Document the damage with pictures that support your insurance claim.

What are the most common causes of pipe leaks and bursts?

Burst pipes in Vernon Hills are usually the result of freezing winter weather. Pipe leaks are commonly caused by excessive fluctuations in water pressure, soil or foundation shifts, hard water corrosion or damaged pipe joints and fittings.

Will homeowners insurance cover cleanup costs after a pipe burst?

Most homeowners insurance policies cover damages, cleanup and restoration after a plumbing failure. Business property insurance typically provides similar coverage. There are exceptions, including faulty installation, owner negligence or shoddy maintenance.
