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.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
