One small appliance can be a large source of trouble for some homes. Contact SERVPRO today for any fire damage remediation assistance.

A Small Space Heater Can Be A Real Threat to Your Manhattan Apartment

When you live in Manhattan, you are subject to unexpected temperature drops even though summer is right around the corner. To warm up just a bit, you may plug in an old space heater in your living room without realizing that its wiring can pose a threat to your apartment. Once it causes a fire, you realize just how vulnerable we are to accidents, even if they seem minor.

Despite your quick response in using a fire extinguisher, there still is fire damage to your Manhattan apartment, and you want to make sure to address any potential trouble this may cause. Our SERVPRO crew is at your service to assess the extent of the damage and help you restore your home. All you need to do is call us as soon as disaster strikes. Our team is available 24/7 and ready to mitigate your losses by acting quickly and effectively.

Aside from the smoke and soot residue left by the fire, you may wonder whether your belongings can be salvaged. Our SERVPRO team analyzes the path of the flames and also considers the nature of each element that suffered. Synthetic materials such as plastics do not burn in the same manner as natural materials do, such as wood. Understanding the difference is crucial in applying proper cleaning and disinfecting agents to each affected surface of your home.

Ridding your home of the foul smoke odor is also essential. Our SERVPRO staff understands the buildings in New York City and applies deodorizing agents in a way that is specific to the materials used in your home. We have at our disposal many options for eradicating the smell, including odor pellets, charcoal-activated filters and even thermal fogging. Whether the fire was big or small, we want to eliminate all its traces.

New York City living is fast-paced and vibrant, and SERVPRO of Upper West Side wants to make sure you do not miss a beat. Call us at (917) 498-1362 and let us leave your home "Like it never even happened."
