Protecting Your High-Rise Manhattan Apartment from Water Damages

Water loss incidents that can occur in the high rises lining the eastern side of Central Park in Manhattan and throughout the blocks beyond it can be incredibly damaging to the building. Regardless of the source of this incident, the effects can spread through joined walls to affect multiple units simultaneously, not to mention, spread throughout the entirety of the initially affected apartment. Addressing the effects of a water loss incident must occur quickly to prevent unnecessary demolition and reconstruction and to prevent the spread of these effects further through the building.

Water damage in your Manhattan high rise apartment can come in multiple layers, stretching far beyond exposure to the structural elements and construction materials. Understanding the full impact of water saturation and secondary effects that could occur can help to encourage property owners to respond to these emergencies quickly by reaching out to the 24/7 SERVPRO response team that remains prepared to handle the full spread of these effects. We approach these situations with advanced machines and tools and a roster of IICRC-certified Water Restoration and Applied Structural Drying Technicians.

One of the most pressing effects of water loss incidents is the saturation of construction materials and structural elements. The longer drywall, flooring, and other components can remain saturated, the more likely that they become irreparably damaged or unsalvageable when restoration work begins. Addressing these concerns begins with a thorough inspection of the affected elements by our SERVPRO estimator and management.

We can arrive with the full measure of our extraction and drying equipment, helping us to get started immediately on protecting and preserving the portions of your property that we can. We understand how quickly these effects can spread to neighboring units, so we work to install as many high-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers as are necessary to completely prevent the spread of effects and begin efficiently removing moisture from structural components.

While there are multiple layers to the damage that water can do in your high-rise apartment, our SERVPRO of Upper East Side can help. Let us show you how we can make water loss incidents “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (917) 924-2260.
