Flooding that affects your condo or apartment needs to be taken seriously because often it's not just your unit that is involved. Call SERVPRO.

Call the Professionals for Flood Removal in the Manhattan Area

The population and business density of the Manhattan area make it an exciting and vibrant place to live and work. When living spaces experience significant water incursion in the city that density and the residential building configurations offer many challenges. Our highly-qualified team of flooding mitigation professionals has both the training and the specialized equipment to get the job done right and fast.

When flood removal in the Manhattan area is needed because of broken water mains or overflowing sanitary sewers during heavy rains, garden level condos and apartments suffer the most. Although all spaces in a multi-story residential property can have issues when lower levels are flooded, living at or below the street targets those units for a rapid emergency response. Our crews arrive ready to assess the situation begin restoration efforts immediately.

Each SERVPRO service vehicle carries a full complement of water removal and structural drying equipment. We can pump and extract water from your home even if the electricity service is interrupted. Our gas-powered and truck mounted tools prevent delays that could mean progressive damage to your property and serious secondary concerns like mold growth. We employ thermal scanners to locate hidden water migrating into cavities after a flood to ensure all fluids are contained and removed.

Expert flood recovery needs an accurate measurement of moisture levels throughout the process. During IICRC training SERVPRO technicians study the science of psychrometrics, the principles behind applied drying techniques. Establishing drying goals based on reliable moisture measurements is vital. We use meters and probes to fix baselines and revisit those levels to assess how well the air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers we position in your space are reducing moisture in the structural components of your home.

To attend better to the requirements of your furnishings and personal possessions during flood removal SERVPRO might recommend a pack-out of some items. At our production facility, we can clean and dry out articles you fear were ruined using advanced technologies such as freeze and thermal drying. We use a Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) protocol to create and maintain an inventory and track restoration attempts. This documentation helps us work with your insurer as well.

SERVPRO of Upper West Side is ready to help when your apartment or condo is afloat in flood waters. One call to (917) 498-1362 can line up water removal, structural and contents drying, and assistance with your insurance claim process.
