Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Queens, NY

Cold Snaps and Plumbing Breaks in Your Queens Apartment 

Water loss can be a common disaster that affects a Queens home or apartment, and this has much to do with how many situations can lead to these compromising conditions. While the construction of your home strives to prevent pipes bursting with severe temperature drops, you might not recognize vulnerable points in your system until it is too late. Once pooling water exists, you need a team of professional restoration specialists to remove surface water and to begin drying out saturated materials. 

Removing Surface Water from Flooring and Wall Cavities 

With pipe bursts, hundreds of gallons of water or more can find its way to the floor or in the walls before you can get the main supply shut down in the basement of the structure where the service line enters. Removing this pooling water can be a considerable challenge in structural cavities, as it requires advanced tactics to remove the standing water and dry out this damaged region of the property. Drilling weep holes behind the baseboard can help remove pooled water between walls and become access points for drying equipment like our Injecti-Dry System. For water damage out in more accessible areas, we have a variety of valuable equipment, including: 

  • Centrifugal air movers
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers
  • Carpet wands
  • Wet Vacuums
  • Axial air movers

No matter how severe water losses can become, you can count on our SERVPRO team to help. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
