How do we Repair Your Water Damage?

 

1. Determine the Source.inspecting water damage

One of the first steps to repair water damage involves a thorough property inspection. Our technicians pinpoint all sources of water with infrared cameras and determine the extent of damage with specialized moisture readers. We then report our detailed assessment to you.

2. Plan of Action.

No client should ever be surprised by the process. That’s why we take the time to explain all plans of action, including cost estimates. If we have to remove baseboards, tear out drywall and dispose of wet insulation, you know in advance. If we can save carpet and recover furnishings, you understand your options.

3. Water Extraction, Drying and Dehumidification

We remove water from your property with a full arsenal of industry-proven water extraction equipment. After our pumps, vacuums and line truck mounts have done their job, we take care of the drying process with sublimation techniques, air movers and dehumidifiers. Our teams also address mold inspection and remediation.

4. Specialized Cleanup and Sanitizing.

Once everything is thoroughly dry, we begin cleanup. We sanitize surfaces and porous materials with appropriate techniques and antimicrobial products. Carpets come back to life with deep steam cleaning, air scrubbers restore a fresh atmosphere, and even soaked belongings can often be recovered with our specialized cleaning methods.

5. Final Property Restoration.

Our job isn’t done until your property is restored to its original condition. Minor jobs might require replacing small areas of sheetrock. Large projects might include rebuilding floors and walls. Whatever it takes, we get you back on your feet by making sure that your property is as good as new.

Wow! So professional and quick from the first phone call to waving goodbye. We had a failed Sump pump and soaked carpet basement. On a busy weekend they arrived with 3 trucks and got to work. Would absolutely recommend them!

We hired service master when our basement got flooded, our insurance agent told us to call them. They did a great job and their communication was always on point. We had a lot of mess in the basement due to all the sewer water, I appreciate their patience and the employees are great.

Last week I had a fire in my home, it was about 4:00 am in the morning, in less than 20 minutes I had several board-up companies outside. Getting my kids and dogs out of the house was my priority, but looked like these companies could care less, they wanted my business. The fire department put out the fire, it was a big fire, my home is not livable at the moment, we lost everything. I picked a board up company and they boarded the windows and doors. They tried to get my business for the rest of the work inside the home but the Fire Department advised me not to sign anything until I spoke with my insurance company. There were so many public adjusters outside fighting for me to sign on, it was overwhelming and a bit scary. I went to my parents house, called my insurance company and they recommended ServiceMaster by Zaba, within 5 minutes I received a call from Brittney at the office, she had a crew arrive onsite in less than 30 minutes. When i showed up to the my house i could not get out of the car, there were a lot of public adjusters waiting for me, they were aggressive and yelling at each other, I had to call the police. I called the Service Master manager which I was able to identify based on their yellow trucks. He walked over to my car and we walked to the house, i could not believe how unprofessional the public adjusters were, they were yelling ignorant comments. I dont know what makes them think anyone would want to do business with them.One of the Public Adjusters walked into my home and bluntly told me, he can rebuild my home to be my dream home and put money in my pocket! I was so mad, I kicked him out. I was impressed at how professional ServiceMaster by Zaba was. They kept their cool throughout the process and were never disrespectful to any of those jerks, they focused on me and my home and asked how my family was. I had smoke, soot and water damage everywhere, of course at this point nothing was salvageable. The adjuster arrived while we were there, we spent about 3 hours going over the work that needed to take place and the expectations. I am very happy and blessed to have been recommended ServiceMaster by Zaba, the process so far has been easy and they are handling all the communication with my insurance company. Neil, Joseph, Britnney and the rest of the team and office staff have been amazing.I hope no one experiences a fire, they are devastating and sometimes fatal, but they are not avoidable. Please make a wise decision, be aware of signing with a public adjuster, speak with your insurance company first. I highly recommend ServiceMaster by Zaba, they are a great company with great staff.

We had an emergency flood situation in our basement. They not only responded immediately but were so professional and calm during such a anxious time for my family. When these unexpected events happen you need not only expertise but prompt results so I definitely would say their name matches what they provide you with. Their water restoration specialists were very informative, took care of our concerns and I’m happy to say got our basement back to be pre flood! I’m thankful and will definitely continue to recommend them to our family and friends.

I highly recommend Service Master By Zaba, they made my old house and I mean old because I hardly recolonized it after they were done with the remodel due to mold and water damage in the house. They provide me a step by step detail plan of how everything was done before and after. I hope to get pictures up soon. Their staff was very careful with everything and all the project Managers were on it all the way. Thank you so much Zab Team!

How much does water damage restoration in Chicago cost?

Most water damage restoration services in Chicago average between $3,000 and $8,000. It is usually calculated per square foot, so the final figures for large properties can be higher. Severe damage and extensive reconstruction also add to restoration expenses.

Are there other factors that affect the water damage cost?

Contamination from sewage backup or toxic black mold growth are just a few examples of issues that may complicate a restoration project. Time is a factor too. Without immediate cleanup, water damage quickly spreads and increases the square footage that must be restored.

How much does insurance cover?

Typically, most policies cover 100 percent of water damages excluding your deductible. However, be sure to check coverage details with your agent. We need as much information as possible so that we can help you file your water damage restoration claim.

How long do repairs take?

Water damage restoration can involve removing soaked materials including floors, walls, and carpetsThe drying process averages between three and five days. Finish time depends on job size.

What should I do before help arrives?

It’s very important that you document all water damage with photographs. Most agents consider you responsible for an inventory.
