Common Water Damage Questions 

To help you better understand what you can expect to pay in the event of water damage, we’ve used our years of experience to break the process down.  The actual cost of emergency water damage restoration services varies largely for two main reasons. First, the pricing of a job is completed on a case-by-case basis. Second, different companies will always offer different quotes on the same job. Determining how much a particular job will cost is easy — simply ask for a quote.

However, we caution our customers to look beyond a simple verbal quote or over-the-phone estimate.  Instead, make sure your contractor offers you a written quote breaking down all of the individual costs of the operation so you have the documents in your records and for your convenient reference.  Not all contractors do this automatically, so be sure to ask for it specifically.

Understanding how a contractor prices a job:

Generally, the more water a contractor is dealing with, the higher you will be charged.

Other factors of consideration include:

  • The height of the water
  • The amount of water that still needs to be extracted
  • Water type
    • There are three categories of water:
      • Clean water which does not pose any health risks
      • Greywater comes from sources with physical, biological or chemical pollutants like kitchen wastewater or laundry water. Greywater can cause illness or discomfort to those exposed to it or consuming it.
      • Blackwater which is highly toxic and absolutely unsanitary. This includes sewage and floodwater.
    • Obviously, you can expect to pay more if the water type is dangerous and therefore requires more effort to clean.
  • Size of the affected area
    • This is usually measured by square feet.
  • The extent of the damage
  • The materials involved

Residential Water Damage Cleanup services can sometimes average between $3000 – $10,000 and
Commercial Water Damage Cleanup services can sometimes range between $3000 and $30,000.

Insurance policies cover 100 percent of emergency water damage restoration services, excluding your policy’s deductible. We make sure the damage is covered by your insurance policy. We prevent further losses and advocate on your behalf. Let us help guide you through the process to ensure this will not be a financial burden upon your home or business.
Drying time is determined by a combination of factors, including the location, duration, and source of water, the types of building materials, the weather conditions, and how quickly emergency services begin. Through consistent monitoring and evaluation of the drying process, we can determine when the drying is complete. We will be in constant communication with you about where we are along in the process and exactly when you’re able to return to your home or business.

Not necessarily. We will adjust the temperature to its optimum setting for the proper drying conditions. Please do not change the setting or shut off the HVAC system. If you do, you may prolong the drying process.

Additionally, opening your windows to assist the drying process is not always recommended. Outside weather conditions may vary, so the technician will determine when and if the outside air is appropriate.

There are a few reasons your carpet may not be salvageable, including:
Delamination (occurs when the backing separates from the carpet fiber)
Loss of adhesion (may be caused by prolonged exposure to water or age of the carpet)
Permanent stains
Carpet covers wood flooring (to salvage the wood flooring)
Our technicians will evaluate moisture content, determine the severity of the damage and may have to remove some of your ceiling for ventilation. Wet insulation can also be a hazard and may need to be removed.
Wood flooring must be evaluated during the drying process. We employ specialized drying systems and dehumidifiers that enable us to create an environment where wood floors can dry more efficiently and resume their original shape. Due to the density of hardwood flooring and urethane finishes, drying may take up to three weeks or longer. If you filed a claim, your insurance adjuster will work with you to make the final decision as to whether floors will need to be refinished or replaced.
If you file an insurance claim, you may receive guidance from your insurance representative. However, this is a decision you must reach on your own. Here are several things to consider. Safety is paramount. Our equipment is as childproof as possible, but we require your supervision to make sure no children play with it. Air movers and dehumidifiers will create noise and make your property drafty for a few days. It is important that the equipment remains on, so if the noise is disruptive to you, you might want to consider an alternate place to stay.
It is not unusual to smell odors during the drying process. Increased heat and humidity can also lead to increased odors that may be coming from the drying building materials, or dormant spill and accident areas. Do not confuse these normal odors with the odor of mold. As the drying process continues and humidity levels drop, you’ll notice these odors disappearing on their own. Deodorizers are often used to minimize these effects as well.
Hard surfaces can be cleaned and sanitized. Affected items that cannot be sanitized require disposal. Porous materials such as drywall, ceiling tiles, insulation, particleboard, paneling, etc., that have been directly affected should be removed during the emergency service visit.

Frequently Asked Fire Damage Questions

Costs can range from $1,000 and $30,000. These numbers represent ranges of price or a “ballpark” estimate. Fire & Smoke Damage can range in intensity and level of damage to your property. It’s important to contact ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons to begin the consulting and estimating process as soon as possible.
Several factors affect cost. Size of fire or smoke damage, the intensity of damage and type of materials burned in a fire. Another factor that is often overlooked is the type of extinguishing agent used to put out the fire. Was water used? An inert gas like nitrogen or argon? Or a chemical agent like potassium carbonate?
Of course, you can attempt to clean smoke and soot damage yourself. And you may be successful at it, but the chances at success are slim for you. Smoke & Soot Cleaning requires special processes, training, and skill. These processes are established by the IICRC. As a certified IICRC firm for Fire & Water Damage, we recommend that you make sound decisions that work for you. If, after you’ve attempted to clean the damage yourself, you feel that you still need a professional service, immediately call ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons 773-376-1110 for professional Fire & Smoke Damage Cleanup and Smoke & Soot Cleaning.
Most property insurance covers 100 percent of your fire damage cost, but you’re responsible for paying a set deductible. Your agent is your best resource for coverage information, and our staff can help you navigate the process.
Don’t remove furnishings or belongings from damaged areas until your carrier gives you the OK. Your insurance company has to establish the fire’s origin and cause, and you don’t want to slow the adjuster’s process.
Estimating a Chicago Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration, Smoke Odor Removal or a Soot Cleaning project on the phone is virtually impossible. A ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons project manager needs to visually inspect the premises, take measurements and assess the level and intensity of the fire & smoke damage to your property before an estimate can be produced and presented.
Because there are many variables and many services involved in fire and smoke damage restoration, it is difficult to predict exactly how long the complete restoration will take.  Consult with your ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons restoration technician on the estimated dates and phases of your restoration project.
We suggest that you do not attempt any do-it-yourself cleaning methods without consulting ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons first.  Pretesting, using the right cleaning agent for the particular item, mixing deodorizing agents with cleaning solutions, and using correct dilution rates are just some of the ways a fire restoration technician expertly controls the results.  Professional cleaning systems and products used by experienced, trained ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians give you the best chance for complete restoration of your belongings.
At ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons, occupant and worker safety is a top priority.  During the initial inspection, safety hazards are identified and addressed, including debris removal, air quality, electrical hazards, slip and trip hazards, etc.  Burnt electrical cords and appliances are separated out for disposal, and questionable electrical appliances are unplugged and tagged for evaluation of the safe operation.  Electrical power may be turned off and kept off until evaluation by a licensed electrician.
We recommend that you not turn on your furnace or air condition unit without clearance from the HVAC contractor.
  • Cash
  • Checkbooks
  • Flammables
  • Gasoline Cans
  • Medications
  • Personal Documents
  • Pets
  • Stamp/Coin Collections
  • Valuable Jewelry
  • Valuable Art / Artwork
  • Weapons / Ammunition

We recommend that you make a list of items (including food items) deemed non-restorable.  Use an Excel type format or obtain a similar form from your insurance company.  Make a copy for your insurance company and keep one for yourself.

Picture, pictures, pictures.  There’s no such thing as too many.  Document as much as possible including damaged personal items, food items, structural damage, and if possible, pictures of the source of the damage to your property.

This is ultimately your decision.  Some things you may want to consider are safety concerns, odors, electricity, noise from equipment, etc.  If vacating your premises for any length of time consider the following: forward your mail to your temporary residence; stop newspaper and other deliveries; notify utility company, Cable Company, etc., of temporary suspension of services.
There are some items that may require general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets.  ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons offers a full line of Post Construction Cleaning Services.  Please inquire.
Depending on the source, nature, and extremity of the fire, it may be best to remove all belongings to a secure facility for cleaning, storage and to make room for the restoration or construction.  ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons will work with you and your insurance claims representative to manage this process.
Yes, with advance notice we can schedule a time for a ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons representative to meet with you and provide access to your requested items.  A service charge may apply.
Some high-value items require restoration by a specialist.  Working with your insurance claims representative, we can help you identify these and locate a qualified restorer.
Ultimately you, the property owner, are responsible for payment and will need to sign a form authorizing payment for the restoration services.  In many cases, if this is an insurance claim, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons generally collects only the deductible (co-payment) amount from you and bills the balance to your insurance provider as a service to you.  If you have a large loss, your mortgage company may be included as a payee on the payment from your insurance company, and you may need to obtain a signature from them as well.  If your claim is not covered by insurance or you decide not to file a claim, you will be expected to pay in full.
