water damaged repaired room and walls. SERVPRO handles all sorts of water damage restoration needs for your home. No job is too big or small for us. Call now!

Our SERVPRO professionals have leading tools for extraction and drying Queens apartment buildings.

Water damage can occur from multiple sources, making it critical to have a team of restoration professionals capable of handling both the water removal services and emergency services water damage that your property requires. With apartment buildings and high-rises typical to the Queens borough, the methods and measures for flood restoration and extraction must change to suit a greater distance to drain points and the need for pumps to reach several stories from the ground floor.

Our ability to handle water damage in Queen's apartments can be critical for repairing leaking roofs from storms or basement flooding cleanup. Our team of Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) can help with:

  • Basement flooding
  • Emergency services water damage
  • Water damage remediation
  • Burst pipes
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Flood restoration

Water Damage Assessment for Compromised Apartments

A thorough water damage assessment must get conducted to fully understand the needs of a compromised home or apartment. Our crew chief or competent inspection professionals can walk the property with the customer to determine the priorities for cleaning and restoration and pressing concerns that must be among the first restoration focus. Job scoping identifies other critical information as well, such as any contents or personal belongings in harm's way that require relocation, on-site cleaning, or replacement after water damage.

Water Removal Services Available for Multi-Story Apartment Structures

The tools used in restoring and removing water damage from apartments in a building are not always the same as those used in area homes. Because high-rises are so prevalent in the borough, we have many high-pressure pumps to address the substantial head pressure required to either push water up from subterranean levels of the structure during basement flooding or discharge collected water from a unit several stories from the main level.

What Tools Provide Efficient Evaporation in Apartments? 

Air mover and dehumidifiers continue to be the foundational elements of evaporation and moisture removal in apartment buildings. We can continually monitor the drying process with moisture detection devices like hygrometers and thermal imagery. The progress evaluations dictate when equipment can get moved or when specialty drying equipment like positive pressure systems might be required.

Is Content Cleaning Necessary After Ceiling Leaks? 

The job scoping phase identified where water damage had taken hold of personal belongings in the apartment and where cleaning or relocation might be necessary. On-site cleaning and restoration are preferred, but there are instances where it is more convenient to move your items to our nearby SERVPRO facility for drying, deodorization, and surface cleaning. Ceiling leaks can introduce water damage to several areas of the property simultaneously, requiring water removal, evaporative drying, and content cleaning after the water damage migration.

Because water damage can have such a destructive impact on area apartments, our SERVPRO for Long Island City team has specialized equipment to maximize water removal and drying of units in a building quickly. Give us a call at (718) 440-6994.
