How Can I Restore Queens Flood Damage Quickly?

8/11/2020 (Permalink)

Rain water falling on a roof. Don't waste any time when it comes to storm damage in your home. Call SERVPRO today we are ready for your call.

Avoid Wasting Time by Calling a Professional Restoration Company to Help You Return Your Home in Queens to its Original Condition

Your Queens home may become the victim of a storm despite your efforts to protect it. When flood water enters through your roof or windows, it carries outside dangers into your home, including bacteria. When it is all said and done, effectively restoring your home is contingent on you acting quickly after the event. The longer you allow water to sit in your home, the more you invite damage to become permanent.

Floodwater extraction in Queens is a job for our SERVPRO crew, ready to help around the clock. The experience we gain at each job site prepares us to handle the toughest situations as we coordinate your needs with local ordinances, relevant building rules, and insurance adjusters. Rather than taking on the extraction of water, sanitizing, and disinfecting your home, rely on our certified staff to guide you through the process and mitigate your loss.

How Should I Protect my Home after a Flood?

Safety is a top priority for our SERVPRO team. After a flood, we verify that the area is safe to enter, and there are no concerns regarding electrical hazards or structural weaknesses. Once we receive this clearance from the pertinent authorities, we use personal protective equipment to protect ourselves as we isolate the affected area to avoid cross-contamination. As you contact your insurance company, we document our process and begin to discard items that may pose a threat due to their ability to foster bacteria and mold growth. Conversely, we set up a staging area, if possible, to protect the items we can salvage. To extract water from your home, our team may use one of the following-

  • Truck-mounted pumps which are capable of connecting to local sewage to dispose of water
  • Industrial-size dehumidifiers to accelerate water evaporation
  • Wand extractors for water accumulation in the crevices of your home

Floodwater removal can seem overwhelming, but calling the right team can make the process less intimidating. Call our competent staff at SERVPRO of Long Island City at (718) 440-6994 and allow us to leave your home "Like it never even happened."
