Worker repair and fixing ceiling panels damaged hole in the roof house from pipes water leakage. Water leaks can cause more damage than imagined. That's why SERVPRO of Lower East Side Manhattan have a team who can help. Call us today!

Water surrounds us every day whether we think about it on a daily basis or not. The bay is located right outside our windows, the ocean is right down the street and the water flowing through our pipes is right behind our walls. 

We rely on water to help us get through our days and to support our lifestyles, but it can also become a huge issue in the blink of an eye! Burst pipes, overloaded gutters, open windows and faulty appliances are all at risk of causing extensive water damage. 

Water disasters can occur from a manmade accident or from a natural source, but either situation can be incredibly destructive. 

Your Appliances and Pipes

Older buildings in the Manhattan area tend to have older pipes and appliances, which can increase the risk of suffering a water line malfunction or burst pipe. Check the water lines coming from your dishwasher, washing machine (if you have one), and your sinks or faucets. Any sort of degradation along the line or loose connections can quickly lead to catastrophe.

A single small crack in a fitting or even a pipe behind your wall can lead to a slow leak over a long period of time. That simple crack could be the cause of hundreds of gallons of water to leak into your home over the course of a few months. If you ever notice water coming from a line or appliance, shut it off immediately to stop the flow of water and give us a call. 

The Force of Nature 

We are no strangers to crazy weather here in the Manhattan area! Strong summer storms, heavy rain, intense blizzards and even hurricanes can impact our area significantly. 

With each instance, water can impact your home in  a massive way. If you own your home, get out a ladder and clean out your gutters and trim your trees. If you rent or live in a high-rise, be sure all of your windows are securely shut and any outdoor furniture is secured to your patio. 

Floods can also impact our community, so preparing for a potential flood can save your possessions from significant damage. Move anything valuable or fragile off of the lowest level in your home, and stay on higher ground. If water starts flowing into your home, stay calm and call us as soon as the water stops rushing in.
