"ServiceMaster of Lincoln Park did a great job drying out my condo unit when the washing machine in the unit above mine flooded. Water from the flooded washing machine came pouring through my ceiling and every opening (into light fixtures, through openings for plumbing and HVAC, etc.) I called ServiceMaster of Lincoln Park and they arrived within one hour. They evaluated the situation and took steps to dry out my ceiling and walls. Their speedy service and efficient handling of the situation no doubt saved me from a lot more damage and more costly repairs! I would definitely recommend ServiceMaster of Lincoln Park for fast, professional, quality service. As a bonus, they work seamlessly with many home and condo insurance companies.

"Dan and David are the very best. I was dealing with water damage from an upstairs neighbor's overflowing w/d, and in a stressful situation, these two are top-notch. They were incredibly helpful in explaining everything that was needed at each step, and they accommodated every issue that arose (not through their fault, but just the things that happen as you're going through a process like this). I highly recommend using ServiceMaster of LP for any projects, but if you come home to find wet floors at midnight on a Saturday, as I did, these are the guys to call!" - Sarah B. of Chicago - Google
The Damage Water Causes
Water damage doesn't discriminate. Untreated water can tear through your home with a destructive wake, draining your home's value and leaving you with an expensive repair bill. Water damage can also cause mold and poor air quality, leading to some serious health side effects.
Water damage can impact your home's structure from top to bottom:
- Disintegrating drywall: Your drywall can soak up excess water like a sponge, causing sagging, saturation and eventual disintegration. Not only will this impact the integrity of your wall structures, but it also means your walls will be left with lingering contaminants.
- Swollen wood: From wood studs and framing to cabinets and hardwood floors, your home is filled with wooden structures that can warp and rot if left in standing water.
- Ruined carpets: Water-soaked carpets can begin to separate from their backing, causing permanent damage.
- Hazardous pipes and electrical systems: If water reaches your pipes and wiring systems, it can cause serious damage and safety hazards like fires and electric shocks. Always call in a professional to handle your shorted-out electrical systems and broken pipes.
- Contaminated HVAC systems: Once your HVAC unit experiences water damage, it can become contaminated and begin interfering with your indoor air quality.
How Long will My Property Take to Dry?
It's only normal to want a countdown for when your home will be back to normal. Unfortunately, there's no one-size-fits-all timeline for how long the drying process will take. The length of time it takes for your property to dry completely depends on factors like:
- The size and scope of your property
- The type of water damage sustained
- How long the water lingered before being cleaned out
- The severity of the water damage
- The types of materials affected
Water removal drying may take as little as two or three days. If your property was well and truly soaked for a long time, you're likely looking at a much longer wait. Our water removal and extraction team in Chicago assesses properties and offers guidance on a case-by-case basis.
Why Can't I Clean Up and Dry Out the Damage Myself?
To the untrained eye, water damage might seem like an obvious quick fix. Notice a leaking pipe or spot a small spill on the floor? It's tempting to grab a mop or a cloth and call it a day. The problem with water damage, unfortunately, is that the most harmful side effects are often invisible. It's the water that's out of sight — behind your walls, inside your ceilings or under your stairs — that wreaks the real havoc.
Untreated water damage from a flood, broken appliance or burst pipe can rapidly cause mold and mildew growth, putting the entire structure of your home — and your health — at risk. Without the right tools and gear, you won't be able to locate the unseen water or repair it safely.
Beyond having the right gear and skills, it's important to remember the health hazards that come with water damage. Depending on the source of the water and how long it has lingered, standing water poses a serious health threat. Water can be filled with debris, bacteria and hazardous waste. A professional cleanup crew knows how to contain a contaminated area, safely clean and disinfect it, improve your indoor air quality and ensure your home's structure is safe and sound.
While you might save some money on the initial cleanup, the costs of water damage quickly stack up and can leave you with a depreciated home value and a hefty repair bill. On the other hand, the benefits of water removal from a trained professional include a reduced risk of long-lasting damage — and the peace of mind that comes with a thorough cleanup job.
