How to Deal with Water Damage in Your Manhattan Home
A DIY Job Gone Wrong Could Cause Water Damage in Your Manhattan Flat
Sometimes, you may be tempted to do a job yourself, especially if it saves you money. However, lack of proper experience, or a mistake, could leave your Manhattan home in need of water damage remediation services. In particular, many homeowners are tempted to perform bathroom renovations themselves. Doing the renovation yourself can sometimes cut down expenses by more than 50% of what it would have cost to go with a professional service.
However, what if you made a mistake in your renovation that caused water damage to your Manhattan flat? Imagine that while you were trying to remove the vanity from your bathroom, to replace it, you accidentally damaged a plumbing pipe. Water spilled out into your bathroom almost immediately and soaked the floor. Furthermore, to make matters worse, imagine it takes you twenty minutes to get the water shut off inside of your flat.
Whenever water damage happens inside your home, you must remain calm. Getting professional water damage restoration technicians (WRT) into your home as quickly as possible is essential. Remaining calm can help you make the phone call you need to much quicker, and leave you level-headed enough to provide all necessary information quickly.
Here at SERVPRO, we also value calm and effective action. We understand how time-sensitive water damage is. Our technicians know that water damage left untouched for less than 72 hours could form mold damage. For this reason, we always work around your schedule. Remember, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
In this scenario, SERVPRO could be at your home within hours of your initial phone call. Once we enter your flat, our WRT can begin right away by using advanced equipment to remove the standing water from your bathroom. We can use devices like extractors and wet/dry vacuums to remove the water, and then flood drying mats on the floor to ensure that none seeped between the tiles. SERVPRO can also set up dehumidifiers and axial fans to dry out the base of the walls, to ensure that no remaining excess moisture is left behind.
Once finished, SERVPRO can recommend a plumber to you who can come and fix the pipe that was damaged inside of your bathroom.
If you accidentally cause water damage to your apartment, never hesitate. Speak with SERVPRO of Upper West Side by phoning (917) 498-1362. Our technicians are always ready to help.
