What causes water damage?
It is critical to fix the damage as soon as possible, because even a ⅛ inch crack can cause a release of 250 gallons of water per day.
Given the climate and geographical location, Queens can be heavily affected by floods during hurricane season.
The following include the most common reasons for water damage restoration services in Queens:
Overflows of sinks, bathtubs, etc., usually due to stoppages or leaks in traps or drain lines under these fixtures.
Leaks from faucets, washers in faucets, valves, etc., especially if these leak slowly and are not readily apparent to occupants of the building.
Dripping from overhead pipes carrying domestic hot water heating systems, from steam condensate lines, or any other piping that may drip on occupants or their possessions.
Water seeping in through the walls or roof of a building, sometimes due to an improperly installed roof flashing or an opening such as a vent pipe that has not been caulked and weather-stripped properly.
Accumulated rainwater on roofs, often caused by clogged gutters, downspouts that are too small in capacity, or improper location of the downspouts with respect to the building walls.
Flood damage from streams or rivers adjacent to a building site, tidal waves, or rapid melting snow in cold climates.
Groundwater or sewage seepage into basements and crawl spaces.
Burst pipes inside a building.
Ice dams on roofs, formed when melt-water from the warm upper part of the roof cannot escape fast enough through the gutter system and refreezes along the colder eaves and rake boards, blocking further drainage.
Freezing of water in plumbing fixtures, valves, and tanks, due to low ambient temperatures.
The sudden pressure release in a hot water system caused by excessive boiling of water in a tank or heater vessel.
Overloading of sanitary sewers due to excessive infiltration of groundwater or the disposal of large quantities of liquid wastes from restaurants, hospitals, institutions, etc.
Damage to property and equipment caused by firefighting efforts using large volumes of water.
iFlooded Restoration services in Queens NY can deal with all of these situations, delivering mold remediation to fire damage restoration, whenever you need it. You can be sure of great customer service in Queens NY.
Pipe bursts can go unnoticed until they become a full water damage disaster. Some of the most common causes are clogs and freezing temperature. However, sometimes pipes can burst suddenly from the rust and corrosion caused by old age.
When that happens, the first thing you need to do is turn off the electricity and then the water supply. While there are quick fixes, such as using a C-clamp or a sleeve clamp to stop the leak, it is necessary to contact a plumber and a water damage restoration company.

What does the iFlooded Water Damage Restoration Process Include?
Assessing the Damage
After giving us a call, our Queens NY water damage restoration team swoops in to perform a comprehensive water damage restoration on your property or locally owned business, including mold removal.
The first step in the water damage restoration process is assessing the damage. This means looking at the extent of the water infiltration and what deep cleaning needs to be done to prevent further damage and restore the property to its original condition.
Before carrying out any restoration job, our experienced damage restoration professionals will create a plan of action based on this assessment.
File a Claim
The second step in the water damage restoration process is filing an insurance claim with your insurance company.
It’s important to note that most homeowners insurance doesn’t cover gradual water damage. Property owners need to check their policies thoroughly because most will only cover water damage where onset is sudden or accidental.
Filing a claim process has two parts: submitting the claim and following up on the claim. It is important to keep in mind that the insurance company response time may be longer than expected.
Remove Water and Debris
The next step is to remove all the standing water from your property using pumps and other equipment.
If flooding has occurred, we need to start pumping out as much water as possible to limit additional damage.
We clear any debris from structural components, furniture, or possessions damaged during the incident.
Once all the water has been removed, we will use powerful equipment to proceed with the drying-out process for a flood cleanup.
Drying and Sanitizing the Area
Depending on what water damage restoration services you require, this can be done using fans, dehumidifiers, and air conditioning units.
To ensure air quality levels are safe, the humidity level in your home or office must be brought down to 40-60 percent before it is safe for people to return to the premises. This can take anywhere from several hours up to a few days.
Once the drying process has been completed, it is necessary for restoration professionals to sanitize and clean all affected areas of a home or business.
This includes anything that was removed during water extraction, any surfaces that were damaged by moisture, as well as contents such as carpets and drywall that may have come in contact with contaminated water due to sewer back-ups or other types of overflows.
If there was a sewage backup mildew or musty smell, we would need to use a disinfectant with a strong odor removal solution to get rid of the smell.
Restoring Property Damage
The final step is restoring the structure and furnishings to their original condition using water damage restoration equipment.
As you can imagine, this can be a very time-consuming process, particularly if there is extensive damage:
Depending on how much water damage there was, we may need to repair walls, ceilings, floors, and furniture.
If carpets or floors are damaged, they cannot be left unchanged; therefore, they need to be replaced.
If you have mold infestation, you’ll need mold testing and mold remediation too.
