We Act As Quick As Possible In Central Park West After A Flood
Slowing Migration of Floodwater in Central Park West Apartments
One of the most potentially harmful aspects of flooding in Central Park West apartment buildings is the volume of residents that could become affected. While there might be dozens of pathways for floodwater to enter your property, how you handle the migration of this flooding can be the difference in which other units become affected and how severe the damage in your residence is as well. Because many property owners lack the appropriate tools and equipment for slowing the movement of flooding, it is vital to reach out to our emergency response team.
We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and that can help when you have to face flood damage in a Central Park West apartment. There are multiple solutions that our SERVPRO professionals can employ when we first begin working on a damaged address to slow or completely stall the progression of floodwater.
One of the initial steps that our SERVPRO team can take when we address the widespread flooding concerns in an apartment unit is establishing the perimeter of the current loss effects. Our construction of physical barriers around this damaged area with thick 6mil plastic sheeting can allow our technicians to regulate airflow, temperature, and humidity levels to maximize efficient drying.
Standing water on the surface of flooring might not always exist, even with flooding in the apartment. Instead, we can utilize extraction tools like our carpet and light wands to pull enough water from flooring materials to prevent further migration, while more direct drying efforts get underway.
Positive Pressure Systems
When flood damage enters through structural cavities, these breaches can get resolved through evaporative drying tools like our Injecti-Dry system. By drilling small holes behind the baseboard of affected walls, we can remove standing water and then introduce a consistent stream of warm, dry air into the cavity to dry out moist elements.
Each of these solutions can help to slow the spread of flood effects to neighboring properties or other areas of your apartment. We can respond quickly after a storm loss to make flooding effects “Like it never even happened.” Give our SERVPRO of Upper West Side team a call today at (917) 498-1362.
