Step 3: Water removal and extraction process

When water wreaks havoc to your home, you need to call someone for water damage cleanup with the expertise and equipment to quickly restore your property to pre-water damage condition. In Roscoe Village, our SERVPRO team will use scientific approaches to water removal and water cleanup that puts an emphasis on monitoring and documenting the drying process from start to finish.

When you call, our representative will lead you through a series of questions that will assist us in responding to your water emergency as quickly and efficiently as possible. Knowing about our process will help you feel confident that your property is in good hands.

Inspection and Water Damage Assessment 

An initial inspection will take place to determine what areas have been affected and the type of water damage your property has sustained. This is a crucial step in the creation of the most efficient plan of action. Each plan of action has the same goal, a successful restoration.

Removal of Water from the Area

Whether it’s hundreds or thousands of gallons of water that need to be removed, our powerful vacuums and pump systems can handle whatever is thrown at them. The pros at SERVPRO in Roscoe Village will begin this process as soon as possible to minimalize additional damage and assist in the prevention of mold growth.

Drying and Dehumidifying 

After the majority of the water has been eliminated, we’ll use specialized equipment to seek out the water that’s harder to remove. SERVPRO uses less intrusive, scientific drying methods in the way of air movers and dehumidifiers to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage will also harm your other possessions, like clothing, furniture, and other personal items. Your SERVPRO technicians of Roscoe Village are available to clean restorable items using a variety of specialized cleaning techniques. They can also sanitize with antimicrobial treatments and use industrial air scrubbers and fogging tools to remove odors.


This is the final step to restore your home or business back to its pre-damage state. The restoration step can include anything from replacing a few drywall panels up to major reconstruction, like rebuilding entire rooms of a home or office. 

Even though every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, the general process will stay the same. No matter how large or small the disaster, your SERVPRO professionals in Roscoe Village are ready to handle your water damage cleanup.
