SERVPRO offers flood damage remediation services in New York City.
In recent years, New York City has been experiencing more severe flooding, particularly in the summer months. Experts predict that these problems will affect tens to thousands of residents and become more problematic as the city's water and sewage systems age. Experts also believe that climate change will only make the problem worse. Historical weather data shows that this increase in rainfall is a real concern. In the last 100 years, the daily average rainfall in the city has more than doubled. This change can be observed all year, but it is most noticeable in summer, when the average rainfall has risen more than two-and a half inches in just sixty years.

New Yorkers have suffered significant losses from flooding in the last twenty years. According to the First Street Foundation, 14% of all properties in New York are at risk from flooding. According to the organization, flood-related damage will increase by approximately 15,000.
