Water Damage Restoration
Water damage restoration is the process undertaken by 911 Restoration Long Island.
It is vital that professionals handle the water damage job to reduce the challenges of the situation and ensure your home retains its health after an ice dam or pipe burst for years to come.
It can be dangerous to take on water removal from an ice dam yourself. For instance, we had a call from a customer who had recently bought her house, but had ice gathering on her driveway as well as an ice dam on her roof.
In an attempt to remedy the possible water damage disaster, she laid cat litter and sand on the ice so that it would be removed easily. The plan backfired, creating a muddy mess all over her front yard and driveway.
Our ice dam water damage restoration Long Island representatives answered her call and reassured her that we could indeed take care of the original ice dam as well as the icing aftereffects of the sand on her driveway to prevent further water damage.
Our Owners Will Guide You Through the Flood
Eli Elfasi, owner of 911 Restoration Long Island, responds to every call to scope out the loss. On this one water damage project, he explained how he would have his crews restore the exterior of the property back to the home our customer had intended to buy, and even eliminate ice dams from the roof to prevent increased damage.
Because events like this become more challenging when people unfamiliar with the issue attempt to clean it up, it is vital you hire water damage restoration Long island professionals that have the technology to get the job done fast, the talent to make the property better than it ever was, and the training to safely and effectively restore the building even after an ice dam situation.

When Eli was called out to a flooded basement water damage event where a bedroom carpet had been drenched. He knew the extent of the water damage emergency. Responding within 45 minutes of the call, he got to work finding the source of the leak which turned out to be a huge ice dam over the whole house that caused the water damage.

911 Restoration Long Island is dedicated to the customer, which is why, when a worried father called on his daughters behalf to learn what he could do about her broken gutters, ice dam, and leaking ceiling, he was happy to provide her with our number.
Eli Elfasi holds fast to our same day service principles for ice dams or anything else related to water damage. Upon arrival, we found the gutters leaking into the house through the ice dam hole created in the ceiling, and it traveled all the way to the basement. There was a bubble in the living room ceiling where the paint was separating from the drywall due to ever-expanding moisture from the ice dam.
We knew how important this water damage job was to the entire family, so we, recalling our vast training, set to clearing the water and fixing the gutters after the ice dam. It did not take us long before the gutters were catching snow again and the bubble had been deflated.
It is our goal in life to provide everyone with a fresh start after such a challenging ice dam experience.

Winter is a challenging time for homeowners and their properties.
It attacks the shelter from all angles, with roof leaks, pipe bursts, and basement floods. One such call came from an experienced property manager. She had found multiple issues with one of her properties in the form of broken gutters, a cracked foundation, and the smell of mold, all stemming from too much water.
With infrared cameras, the latest drying technology, and full hazmat suits, Eli Elfasi and the 911 Restoration Long Island specialists arrived to remedy the situation. They found the brick and cement building materials were porous enough to sustain water.
Out came the heavy-duty equipment to restore the home to its rightful place on this historical block.
By the time all was said and done, the owner of the property was very grateful to have the building back and with our preventative maintenance it would be safe for years to come.
