How We Restore Your Property After Water Damage
Our team uses a proven process to repair water damage. Here are the five steps we follow:
1. Determine the Source.
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.

Is Water Damage Restoration Really Necessary?
The quick answer is yes. Even when water damage seems minimal, it can cause serious structural damage to your Chicago home or business. A small leak can cause drywall to become unstable, for example, while flooding in the basement can compromise your home’s foundation.
Additionally, water damage causes mold and mildew growth, which can create a variety of health concerns. According to the CDC, exposure to mold can cause symptoms like wheezing, red or itchy skin and eyes, a runny nose, new or worsening asthma symptoms, fever, and shortness of breath, to name a few. Without the help of a professional restoration company, you may be unaware that mold exists in your home.
Here’s the bottom line:
Even if it just seems like a small leak or a slow drip, contact ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba. Our Chicago-based team will evaluate the source and extent of the water damage, complete any necessary repairs, and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is completely dry, safe, and healthy.
What Chicagoland Customers are Saying

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