Steps To Overcome Water Damage
Water damage recovery service calls make up a large percentage of the work we do throughout the year. Homes experience multiple types of disasters in this area, allowing water to move rapidly from the source throughout the house.

Some of the common types of disasters that could impact your home include:
- Burst pipes
- Appliance failures
Qualified SERVPRO Technicians to Help
Water damage in Rockaway Park must be handled fast. Most DIY cleanup and recovery are not ideal for damaging disasters in your residence, specifically because surface cleaning only sometimes addresses the entire issue. You must often lean on the experience and accreditations of professional restorers like our team to help. We are WRT-Certified through the IICRC. With 24/7 availability from our centrally located facility, we can quickly reach properties throughout The Rockaways and Coney Island.
Rapid Mitigation Solutions
Our professionals need to work fast to determine the pressing concerns after we arrive. Mitigation is meant to regulate conditions that could make restoration more complicated or create an unsafe environment for your family. Our emergency services focus on several areas where we can help, often focusing first on removing any standing water that might be present in the house. It is challenging to determine the extent of damage to the rest of the property without first addressing hindrances to a proper inspection.
Extraction and Water Removal Services
Various extraction tools will be necessary to address the water standing in several areas of the house. Severe water pooling will require our most powerful removal equipment. A truck-mount extractor, self-power sourced with gas or diesel fuel, is part of our Green Fleet of service vehicles. More manageable conditions can fall under our inventory's capable equipment, like pumps and vacuums. We also utilize attachments and accessories for wet vacuums, such as light wands and squeegee wands, to provide the finishing touches on surface water damage.
Caring for the Contents of Your Home
Under the right conditions, it will take little time for your personal belongings and treasured possessions to become permanently ruined by water exposure. It is a priority of our restoration team to work in the early stages to relocate at-risk items to a safer location or create a staging area for on-site cleaning and recovery. Our content claims service can also help insurance companies to keep track of loss and our efforts to salvage what can be cleaned.
Needed Drying Equipment
Any water damage situation involving your home requires some degree of drying. While the specifics of this need will vary from property to property, the underlying requirements of evaporation and humidity control remain the same. Some of the common approaches for our efficient drying process include:
- Centrifugal Movers – Powerful blowers force air against wet materials to directly dry these installed elements as rapidly as possible.
- Dehumidification Units – Where air movers work to create evaporation and force moisture into the air, dehumidifiers regulate this humidity to continue the drying process. Two dehumidification units come into our process: desiccants and low-grain refrigerant options.
- Drying Mats – Flooring like hardwood can be complicated to dry. Mats remove moisture through capillary suction, often preserving these planks from permanent damage.
