Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

In The Event of a Storm, It Is Critical To Have a Well-Thought-Out Plan for Your Home.

Wet Hardwood Flooring, Water Is Visible On the Floor A hardwood floor wet with flood water after a storm. The wood's natural tendency is to absorb it.

Taking the First Step

Turn off the electricity to the house if water is in light fixtures or near electrical outlets. When calling SERVPRO to schedule an appointment, explain that there is no electricity accessible on-site and that the technicians will need to bring generators to power their equipment.

If it is safe to do so, remove valuables and heirlooms. If not, inform the lead technician when SERVPRO comes so that they may recover your belongings. Everyone's safety is paramount, and homeowners should not overlook the dangers of slipping and falling on damp flooring.

Hardwood Flooring Has a Chance to Recover

When water leaks through a hardwood floor, the wood's natural tendency is to absorb it. Crowning, cupping, and warping can occur in fast succession as a result. The sooner moisture is removed, the less likely tile will delaminate and hardwood floors will be damaged. After extended exposure to water, composite pressed wood boards usually deteriorate and must be removed.

SERVPRO of Long Island City at (718) 440 6994 has the trained technicians that arrive fast to your property and restore it from storm damage to make the loss to your home and contents, "Like it never even happened."

 We are available 24/7.
