Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Wilmette Residents

1. Immediate Damage Assessment

Our technicians arrive in fully equipped service vans, ready to get to work. We assess the water damage to your property, furnishings and belongings. Our teams also take care of structural problems that might pose safety issues.Water Damage Restoration Wilmette IL

2. Consultation and Action Plan

Next, we develop an action plan for mitigation and remediation. We know you have questions and concerns, so our technicians share the details. We want you to understand what to expect during our restoration process, as well as our proposed timetable for job completion.

3. Water Damage Mitigation

Our water damage mitigation techniques prevent secondary damages from spreading through the property. We start by removing standing water with advanced truck-mounted extraction systems. Our technicians begin tearing out ruined structural material and clearing the way for remediation.

4. Debris Haul Off and Disposal

As our teams mitigate the water damage, we continually clear out and haul off debris. For example, we pull up ruined carpets, tear out crumbling drywall and bring down collapsing ceilings. All unsalvageable materials are hauled away for disposal, following City of Chicago regulations.

5. Advanced Drying Techniques

The mitigation phase includes applied structural drying. Our technicians work with an arsenal of industrial-grade equipment, including hardwood floor drying systems, centrifugal air movers, axial fans and desiccant dehumidifiers.

6. Water Damage Remediation

Water damage remediation focuses on cleaning all affected areas and addressing any necessary structural repairs. We use industry-approved products and special techniques to sanitize and deodorize all interior materials and surfaces

7. Complete Property Restoration

This last step includes rebuilding walls, replacing floors and reconstructing ceilings. We also clean salvageable contents, such as furniture and belongings. Your home or business is completely restored to its pre-loss condition. When we have your final approval of our work, we consider our job done, and we thank you for your business.

Our Specialized Water Damage Repair Services for Wilmette

Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration

When your home’s basement floods, the aftermath can seem overwhelming. A flooded basement at your commercial property can shut down business indefinitely. We’re ready to clean and restore basements in every type of setting.

Our teams start by pumping out the basement with truck-mounted water extraction equipment. We clean, disinfect and deodorize surfaces and contents. Whether it’s a finished basement at the house or basement storage at work, our restoration pros return the downstairs to its pre-loss condition.

Industry-Certified Mold Removal Servicesmold-removal-wilmette

After a water emergency, mold begins to grow in damp materials within 24 to 48 hours. The unhealthy fungus quickly spreads into drywall, flooring, ceilings and ductwork. It can create structural problems and trigger allergic reactions.

We eliminate all types of mold in water-damaged properties. Our removal techniques are industry-certified and highly effective, even against toxic black mold. Our mold remediation process makes sure the fungal growth doesn’t return.

Hazardous Category 3 Water Remediation

Storm flooding and backed-up sewage lines create a serious type of water emergency. In both cases, the water is contaminated with bacteria, microscopic organisms and chemicals. Both are classified as Category 3 water and require a specialized cleanup process.

Our technicians are highly trained in hazardous black water mitigation and remediation. We adhere to the strictest CDC protocols as we disinfect, remediate and restore properties contaminated by dangerous black water.

UPDATEI had ServiceMaster out again after the July 2, 2023 sewer back ups in the city. The crew came back out and quickly dried and cleaned/disinfected my basement and returned twice to ensure everything was completed to my satisfaction. Everyone was a complete professional and they explain every step of the way, from the office staff to the cleaning crew and follow up representatives the sent. I highly recommend them.Neil and the crew really know there job. They are professional, fast, reliable, courteous, and very sympathetic. They work well with the insurance company which helps immensely when dealing with an emergency. Highly recommended!!!

Fernando and his team "hand held" my situation from the moment I called him to report the incident. Fernando was EXTREMELY helpful in guiding me with what to discard, how to value the lost items, how to present the same to my insurance adjustor and sharing his own personal experience with the process. Every time I contacted him with questions during the process he again was informative, patient and continued to provide guidance. On the day my personal property was delivered his staff was uber professional (laid contractor paper on the new floors, asked for placement of furniture, etc. ) and even removed an old wine refrigerator from the rental unit where I was residing). I will share my positive review with my insurance agent and the adjuster. In todays "new" world of difficulty with expected customer service (and lack thereof) Fernando and his team were a pleasant surprise. I do hope I never have to use his services again (lol) however if I do I know I will be satisfied.

I have a rental property in Lake Forest and the renters were vacationing last week. The temperatures dropped and warmed up and when they got back the house was flooded due to a pipe that burst in the ceiling. I immediately called ServiceMaster by Zaba in Chicago and they came out within the day to clean up the mess and dry everything out. I definitely would recommend them to anyone who's experiencing water damage in their homes!

Had a small kitchen fire. Luckily I was able to extinguish it myself but it left a big mess in my kitchen and entire apartment. ServiceMaster cleaned it out and within 48 hours they got rid of the soot/smoke smell and had cleaned the entire apartment from soot residue. Highly recommend them.

Service master provided me with excellent customer service. They responded quickly to my water issues and answered all my questions and concerns in a professional manner. I never experienced this type of home issue before and they were able to fix my water problems without adding additional stress. I would definitely recommend this company to any person experiencing water damage in their home. In today’s day it is very difficult to find a trustworthy and reliable company that can do a good job. Service Master is definitely the company to call in a water home emergency. I would definitely use them again for any future restoration issues.
