Early Morning Commercial Water Removal in Queens Office 

A plumbing break in the early morning hours in a local office resulted in the need for commercial water removal. Upon finding standing water, the first call was to SERVPRO. 

When the technicians arrived on-site at the office, they immediately began commercial water removal efforts in Queens. This includes carefully scoping the property with moisture detection equipment and determining all paths of water migration. 

Professional Water Extraction Equipment

Flooring tends to suffer the most when a pipe break happens. SERVPRO technicians removed the industrial rubber baseboards to remove the water that seeped behind them and entered the wall. The cubicle dividers were raised and did not receive any damage, and the techs move them out of the worksite area. Portable pumps removed the bulk of the water, but unfortunately, the glue-down carpeting delaminated and required removal so the slab floor underneath could dry.

Drying Contents in Place

SERVPRO techs want to get businesses reopened and running again as soon as possible. They dry desks and other items in place to limit the disruption of clearing out water loss areas. The air movers work to pull up embedded moisture that remains after extraction, and the dehumidifiers work to port captured water vapor off-site. Hence, the structure experiences a rapid reduction in ambient humidity. The powerful equipment the techs use assists in negating mold and foul odors that can delay reopening for mitigation for those issues. 

Post-Drying Cleaning

After a water loss, the techs use their professional cleaning solutions to restore the office to its preloss condition without a hint of musty water odors. When concrete becomes wet and then dried, it can force salts to the surface, and when they dry, a powdery dusting gets left on the surface. This is called efflorescence and gets wiped away easily, so the substrate is left clean and residue-free ready for installation of a new floor covering. 

SERVPRO of Long Island City at (718) 440-6994 has the equipment and certified technicians to address any size commercial water removal and make it "Like it never even happened."
