Trust SERVPRO for Expert Water Damage Restoration in Queens

A water damage incident at your Queens home can greatly impact the aesthetics and structural integrity. Hiring professional restorers like SERVPRO® ensures the damage is addressed promptly, reducing its lasting impact on your property.

SERVPRO techs use the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment to tackle water damage at your Queens home. We start by surveying the extent of the damage by looking for signs of water intrusion in the structure. We use moisture detectors to identify the hidden moisture before preparing a comprehensive drying strategy.

Using Dehumidifiers to Boost Drying Speed During Water Restoration

Once SERVPRO techs remove the standing water from your Queens property, the next step is to create ideal drying conditions. We use different dehumidifiers to create perfect conditions by removing the excess water from the air.

The following types of dehumidifiers are most commonly used in Queens to return your home to preloss conditions as quickly as possible:

  • Refrigerant Dehumidifiers: These machines work like an air conditioner unit, condensing the water vapor by passing over cooling coils. Once the water condenses, the dry air is circulated back into the drying environment to collect more moisture.
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers: Rather than condensing the moisture, these pieces of equipment work by absorbing the moisture into chemicals called desiccants. Once the desiccants are saturated with moisture, warm air is passed over them, causing them to release the water, and the moisture-laden air is vented outside.

Using Low Grain (LGR) Dehumidifiers

One of the most significant differences between conventional and LGR dehumidifiers is that the latter can dry space to a much lower humidity ratio. An LGR has a pre-cooling component that cools the air before it is moved across the evaporator coils. SERVPRO techs use this equipment to dry complex materials like hardwood floors.
