For Comprehensive Cleanup and Remediation Services in Queens and Surrounding Areas, Rely on Your Local SERVPRO

With more than eight and a half million people sharing the boroughs of New York City as a place to call home, the need for cleanup, disinfection,  restoration, and recovery is as sleepless as the city itself. Our SERVPRO team can help with an all-inclusive approach that can not only remedy the immediate consequences of a disaster, but also provide lasting solutions and rebuilding for Queens, Manhattan, and Brooklyn homes and businesses. One of the advantages of choosing our team is the extensive experience and education that our technicians receive to acquire endorsements from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) We can offer a fast and confident response when disasters strike.

Water

Water loss incidents are among the most anticipated disasters that affect Queens properties throughout the year. Because of the long list of potential causes, from freezing pipes in the winter to appliance failures, we stay prepared for your emergencies with stocked trailers and service vehicles ready to mobilize right away. We can often respond to customers within minutes, helping to spread the news fast to our field technicians to roll out from our SERVPRO facility.  

Because of the harsh winters that we can experience along the east coast, freezing can damage homes and businesses in direct ways. Water damage can often result from the bursting of pipes exposed to freezing temperatures for prolonged periods. These breaches can leave your Queens residence contending with a high volume of internal flooding. We have a wide array of water extraction tools that can help.

The mitigation that we can provide Queens properties can help to reduce the out of pocket expenses and total losses of our customers. Emergency services can begin as soon as our team arrives at the damaged address, including focused demolition to provide access to extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Evaporative drying techniques can remove moisture continually until we have reached the established baseline for adequate drying.

Fire

Because of the higher volume of apartment buildings and adjacent structures throughout Queens, fires can have more than just an impact on where it starts. Firefighters work quickly to quell a spreading disaster like this, though restoration is often a challenge of its own. Damage assessment can allow our responding technicians to have a better understanding of the extent of the trouble and what restorative practices are necessary. We can reduce property damage with a fast response to the scene, and this is possible with our centrally located facility.

Cleaning up after a fire loss can mean many different tasks, all of which can reduce the severity of airborne contaminants, lingering odors, and worsening content deterioration. In many cases, debris removal can have a positive effect on the remaining recovery tasks. We also have potent cleaners and cleansing agents that can emulsify or dissolve oily residues and soot resting on exposed surfaces throughout your Queens property. If your belongings are still at risk or in need of focused cleaning efforts, we can move these possessions to our warehouse for immersive cleaning techniques with our ultrasonic tank, deodorization with ozone chambers, and other restorative practices.

As you might expect, many of the structure fires that start in Queens result in more damages than even experienced restoration professionals like ours can fully help. Instead, we have a licensed team of in-house residential and commercial contractors to help. With the combined efforts of our cleaning technicians and our experienced general contractors, we can make most fire losses “Like it never even happened.”

Storm

Storm losses are nothing new to the east coast, especially New York City. From blizzards and hurricane-strength storms to cold snaps and hailstorms, we can stay prepared for the threats that your Queens home might take. During the winter months, conditions like ice damming forming on shingled roofs can threaten to flood attics and upper floors of aging structures in the area. With both residential contractors in-house and mitigation specialists to help with water cleanup and removal, we can provide comprehensive restoration services when it matters most.

While our contractors can handle the immediate needs of your residence, such as board up and tarping for damaged roofs, they can also help with full-scale remodeling and build back when restoration completes. Flooding can be a devastating situation that can only get worse without water removal and drying techniques accompanying temporary construction solutions. We have a wide range of extraction tools that we can use for Queens properties, including electric sump pumps, trash pumps, and wet vacuums.

Massive commercial structures can benefit from our large loss recovery team, whose experience and preparedness have allowed for traveling around the country to help with substantial natural disaster recovery. Back here in Queens, these same technicians and techniques get used to putting life back to normal after storm and flood losses.

Mold

Higher humidity concerns, hydrostatic pressures leading to moist basements, and inadequate drying of water losses in Queens homes can all become factors that allow for mold growth. Under the right damp and warm conditions, microbial threats can form when spores seat into organic materials like fabrics, drywall, and wood. With how quickly the newly forming colonies can spread throughout a damaged area, the disaster can become hazardous for those exposed.

Microbial presences can allow for volatile organic compounds to circulate in the environment, which can agitate respiratory conditions in the occupants of the house or encourage other health effects. Remediation of these threats in your Queens home begins with drying out the moisture permitting mold colonization and using a variety of techniques to remove surface organisms. If a colony is too deeply seated into materials like drywall, it is often more economical for our contractors to remove these compromised portions of the wallboard.

With accreditations from both the IICRC and the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors (NORMI), along with recognition as a mold reconstruction contractor through the State of New York, we can help your Queens home through nearly any hurdle of recovery after a microbial threat.

We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and you can reach our SERVPRO of Long Island City team anytime you need us at (718) 440-6994.
