2. Damage Assessment and Consultation

Next, we consult with you and outline our assessment of the flood damage to your home or business. We present you with our cleanup and restoration plan so that you know what to expect.

We’re happy to address your concerns and answer your questions.

3. Standing Water Extraction

Our powerful truck-mounted extraction equipment quickly removes standing water from crawlspaces and basements. We take care of residual water with specialized vacuuming equipment and set up heavy-duty dehumidifiers.

4. Advanced Structural Drying

As the dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from interior air, we run additional drying equipment throughout all flood-damaged areas. Our axial air blowers, industrial-grade air movers and hardwood floor drying systems run 24/7.

We closely monitor progress with moisture meters until all structural materials are completely dry.

5. Flood-Damaged Material Tear-Out

Unsalvageable materials are torn out to make way for remediation and reconstruction. For example, we remove buckled flooring, water-damaged ceilings and crumbing drywall.

We also clear out general debris, such as ruined carpets and soggy insulation. Everything is hauled away and disposed of, following all city demolition and recycling regulations.

6. Deep Cleaning and Mold Removal

Our remediation techniques prep interiors for final restoration. We begin this step by scrubbing all flood-damaged surfaces. Next, we sanitize, disinfect and deodorize all interiors.

Our technicians also remove and remediate mold with industry-certified products and techniques.

7. Complete Property Restoration

Our final work involves rebuilding, reconstructing and replacing floors, ceilings and walls. We take care of every detail, from trim to baseboards. With this last step, our teams completely restore your property to its pre-flood condition.

When we’re done, we invite you to perform a walk-through inspection. Your approval is our assurance that we’ve successfully restored your property, as well as 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.

How much is the average cost of flood cleanup in Wheeling?

Flood cleanup in Wheeling typically costs between $3,000 and $8,000. Extensive structural issues, Category 3 water cleanup and heavy content loss often add to the final cost.

Are flood emergencies covered by homeowners insurance?

If a flood emergency results from a plumbing problem, most homeowners insurance policies cover cleanup and restoration. However, you need separate coverage for flooding caused by a natural event. Ask your agent about purchasing a policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.
