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

1. Inspection and Assessment

We arrive as scheduled at your Vernon Hills home or business and perform an immediate inspection.

Our teams secure the property and address any hazards, such as structural instability or black water contamination.

2. Restoration Plan and Consultation

Based on our damage assessment, we outline a restoration plan that includes a proposed timeline for job completion.

We discuss the details with you and encourage your input. Your questions are welcomed and answered.

3. Advanced Water Removal

With your approval, we get to work immediately. We pump water out of basements and crawlspaces with advanced truck-mounted extraction systems.

Our technicians use powerful vacuuming equipment to take care of residual water in flooring and carpets.

4. Water Damage Mitigation

Next, we mitigate the damage with a series of steps, including: clearing out general debris; tearing out ruined structural materials; removing water-damaged contents; and addressing salvageable belongings.

5. Controlled Structural Drying

Our mitigation process continues with carefully controlled structural drying.

We set up industrial-grade equipment that operates 24/7. Our technicians closely monitor the progress of heavy-duty axial fans, centrifugal air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers.

6. Property-Wide Remediation

Pre-restoration prep begins by deep cleaning all areas affected by the flooding.

We hand-scrub surfaces with specialized cleaning agents, and then go over everything a second time with sanitizing and disinfecting products. This step also includes mold removal and remediation.

7. Complete Interior Restoration

We finish our process by replacing walls, repairing ceilings and rebuilding floors. All flood-damaged interiors are restored to their pre-loss condition with professional attention to every detail.

After a post-restoration cleanup, we accompany you on a walk-through tour of the final results.

We’re proud of our work, but we don’t consider the job done until we have your complete approval. Only then do we consider the project a success.

Don’t let the damage get worse. Call now.

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.
