You want to ensure you and your loved ones receive the highest-quality water restoration after any situation involving water damage. This process should be comprehensive, with multiple professional steps and phases delivering thorough water-damage assessments, repairs, water removal, and antimicrobial clean up.
You should have a thorough understanding of the way ServiceMaster of Lincoln Park operates before calling our team at (773) 346-6767, which is why we outline our step-by-step water restoration process below.
The ServiceMaster of Lincoln Park water recovery process includes:
Phase 1: Emergency Response
- Job Site Inspection and Assessment: During the job site inspection, our crew members will be as thorough as possible. We are looking for not only the water damage we can see but also any damage that might not be immediately visible. For instance, water can sometimes seep into the walls and pour down into other rooms, such as basement areas or even crawl spaces. Our goal is to be very thorough, which helps you avoid problems in the long run.
Phase 2: Water Removal and Drying
- Daily Inspection of Job Progress: Every water damage restoration project we handle in the Chicago area is a little different. Some can be dried up very rapidly, but others may take days or more than a week to completely dry. We encourage you to be patient during this time period. We understand how difficult it can be to wait for your home to be clear of any moisture, but it is necessary. If the water restoration process is not completely followed, you will be opening the door to future messes.
Phase 3: Reinstallation and Cleaning, if necessary
- A professional water-extraction service will inform you if in-depth cleaning or reinstallation post-water damage is necessary. Only the most serious flood and sewage emergencies tend to require these steps, replacing damaged floors and subfloors, furniture, wall ducts, and piping while reinstating a clean, sanitized space for complete peace of mind.
- Reinstallation and cleanup should also be part of an initial job-site assessment. Trained technicians will be able to spot this level of damage early on, giving you trustworthy and transparent estimates through a written recovery guide and outlining your responsibilities in this final stage.
