There are many factors you should consider when your property is unexpectedly damaged. But, there is one simple decision: Call your local SERVPRO.

High winds and rains can lead to flooding. People seek shelter to protect themselves from getting wet or putting themselves in dangerous situations. The shelter we use, such as our homes or offices, schools or retail locations, is designed to withstand the elements and keep them from getting into the property's interior. This is important because it gives you immediate protection against the elements. You are more secure indoors than you are outside. Our indoor spaces are designed so that we can live in them year round. However, it is when the structures fail that we should be prepared to make repairs to ensure safety.

Storm damage to commercial properties or homes can be apparent and require immediate attention. However, it is possible for the damage to go undetected for long periods of time. SERVPRO can help with both types of damage. Our damage repair team has the ability to provide construction services as well as restoration services. The job can be completed with less material and labor. 

No matter if you need to board up or tarping or complete construction services we can help. Call us today and speak with a manager about our services and how to help you.

SERVPRO Conducts Mold Inspections, Remediations, and Removal in Manhattan

Manhattan is arguably the heart of the world. Finance, fashion, entrepreneurship, and art all have a significant presence throughout the city, and people around the world dream of visiting the Big Apple one day. Part of its charm is the intersection of older architecture and historic buildings along with the most modern structures and innovative technology. Despite their age, all structures are vulnerable to the elements and may present issues such as mold.

The population density in Manhattan is recognized as the highest in the nation. Meanwhile, New York County is the smallest county in the continental U.S. Its small footprint is home to the United Nations, world-famous Times Square, Central Park, and iconic buildings such as the Empire State and One World Trade Center. Countless film productions feature the city’s landmarks and skyline, not to mention the importance of Wall Street and the financial transactions happening there daily. Manhattan is also one of the most diverse communities globally, where nationalities, religions, and ethnicities co-exist to create the rich tapestry that lives, works, and plays within its boundaries.  

Not surprisingly, housing in Manhattan is in high demand, expensive, and an adventure in and of itself. Buildings with older wiring and plumbing can present issues and need restoration services, and mold can cause health effects. SERVPRO is a premier mold removal company in Manhattan, and we are here to meet your needs when time is of the essence. As soon as you detect black mold or attic mold, let our mold specialists conduct a thorough mold removal process and leave your home clean.

The Mold Remediation Process

Mold removal is complex and guided by environmental regulations and industry recommendations. Our mold technicians are certified to handle even the toughest cases, and we do so by applying best practices and relying on state-of-the-art technology. Mold generally appears when excessive humidity exists due to the environment, ceiling leaks, or other water damage. At SERVPRO, we address mold remediation by applying the following principles-

  • Safety first- we work safely using personal protective equipment and preparing the work area to minimize human exposure to mold and contain its spread.
  • Documentation of our work and the extent of the mold damage.
  • Addressing the source of the mold, which is closely tied to restoring normal levels of humidity in the home.
  • Mold removal, including the cleanup process, as well as discarding any unsalvageable items.

Our AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians follow protocols from the EPA and the guidelines from the IICRC The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration for mold cleanup work. We have the required New York State license for Mold Remediation Certification. 

SERVPRO of Lower East Side Manhattan is a top provider of mold remediation services. Call us at (917) 423-6364 for assistance.

Highly trained and well-equipped crews streamline damage recovery.

Perhaps you are well-informed on the source and storage of water in New York City. On the other hand, you might not realize the function of the many conical-topped structures on the tops of buildings throughout all five boroughs. New residents and visitors have questions about the quaint-looking edifices. Similar to small towns throughout the United States, New York supplies much of its potable water through thousands of water towers atop commercial and residential properties in the city.

Why Does New York City Use Towers to Store Its Water Supply?

The water towers solve a water pressure problem that first arose in the 19th century. Like other metropolitan areas in the country, New York City made the most of valuable land in densely populated urban areas by building up rather than out. Story by story, the new skyscrapers appeared, striking a modern pose that presented a challenge. Buildings that climbed higher than six levels prevented the easy transport of water to the new lofty heights of the period’s commercial and residential icons. 

How Do New York City’s Water Towers Work?

New York City imports its water from upstate reservoirs, often created by the flooding of valley towns well over a century ago. The water travels to the city via waterways, aqueducts, and piping using a downstream gravity system. When it enters the city, the pressure built up over its journey forces water up the six stories mentioned above. Rather than using pumps to move water to individual units, the choice was to install water towers near or at the top of higher buildings. Pumps fill the overhead towers, which then again use gravity to serve the residences and business below.

What Is Their Capacity and How Are the Towers Constructed?

About 15,000 tanks supply water in NYC currently. Each tank holds about 10,000 gallons and has an internal system that keeps track of water levels, often a regulator valve or more advanced technology such as electronic probes. Tank-makers use yellow cedar or California redwood to fashion the water towers. 

  • Vertical components (staves) are milled off-site, shaped to fit into grooves on the wooden base lying on top of the metal base.
  • Each piece is carried up the stairs of the building.
  • Most pieces are too large for the freight elevator.
  • Tanks are assembled on-site.

Tank companies in the city now include only three:

  • Rosenwach Tank Company
  • Isseks Brothers and American Pipe
  • Tank’s New York Wood Tank

Who Can Help with Water Supply Leaks in New York City?

Our SERVPRO professionals have been proudly serving the Lower East Side and all of the NYC boroughs for years.

From burst pipes during cold snaps to fire restoration and recovery in the sweltering summer heat, you can count on our fast and confident response. 

Fire Damage Restoration  

Fires can be an overwhelming situation, especially when you do not have the time to remove your treasured belongings and possessions from your Lower East Side home. Our SERVPRO team works to provide real-time content management for these items beginning as soon as our professionals arrive for emergency services. Our technicians can immediately start with debris removal and assessing individual contents in the affected areas of the residence. 

Cleaning occurs in some capacity through every stage of restoration and recovery of your Lower East Side property after a fire. One of the most cost-effective approaches that our team has started is on and off-site cleaning for damaged contents. From your furniture to your clothing, your house items can all get affected in different ways by immediate fire loss effects. While we strive to provide on-site cleaning when possible, we also have more intricate and focused cleaning and deodorization available through the pack-out process.

It is always a priority to save time and money on fire restoration, which makes fire damage mitigation such a vital component of the recovery phase. We have practical and advanced approaches for nearly every obstacle that exists after extinguishing a fire, including foul odors, soot residues, smoke particulates, air quality concerns, and water damage that can exist in your Lower East Side property. 

Storm Damage Restoration 

While fires can be a notoriously destructive disaster, mother nature has also substantially damaged the Lower East Side in even recent years. Storms carry considerable power coming off the Atlantic towards the city. Many of the aging buildings here can suffer structural damages from high winds, hail, heavy snowfall, and torrential rains. Our response to these emergencies is critical, and that begins with both our mitigation technicians and in-house contractors to begin board-up and tarping where necessary. 

Structural breaches are entry points for migrating water, runoff, and wind-driven rain. Understanding where water has gone once it enters your Lower East Side property can make drying and extraction more efficient and effective. This inspection of the property begins with sophisticated moisture detection tools like surface meters and thermography to identify dampness pockets and their severity. Once this happens, we can deploy extraction and drying tools to manage the water damage and flooding concerns quickly. 

As you might expect, getting a home or business back to preloss condition after a destructive storm like a recent hurricane, involves a need for reconstruction. Roof repairs, siding replacement, full-scale build back, and more are all consistent offerings from our in-house licensed contractors. With years in the building trades and helping many other Lower East Side properties, we can help to get your domicile back to normal just as efficiently. 

Commercial Services

Disasters like water and fire damage can be devastating to your business. However, with a team capable of restoring thousands of square feet of the structure simultaneously, we can get you back in business as fast as possible.

Many Lower East Side businesses can benefit from the same premium cleaning practices we would use in post-disaster restoration for aesthetic improvements to their facility.

  • Carpet cleaning
  • Surface cleaning
  • Stain removal
  • Odor removal
  • Vandalism cleaning

Water Damage Restoration

However, your residence combats the presence of moisture and water where it should not be, and our SERVPRO professionals can help with confident restoration services that address both the cause and effect of water losses.

Fire Restoration Is a Science, and SERVPRO Makes Sure Our Technicians Master the Class Before Sending Them to Help in Your New York Apartment

Closed in spaces like the apartments and condos of New York are hard to air out, and do not offer multiple living spaces if lingering odors or other fire damage residues are problematic. Because your space is compact, you were able to subdue a grease fire quickly. Still, without sophisticated professional air scrubbing equipment and other proven containment strategies, it is impossible to keep the airborne residues created during the superheating of grease and food from spreading throughout every space in your home.

Why Bring in a Professional Cleanup Crew? Can’t I Just Research the Best Cleanup Approach Online?

When dealing with fire restoration in a New York apartment or other multiple-household residences, it is understandable that you might want to avoid the disruption of recovery experts. The reality is that you acquire two significant problems when you try a DIY approach: 

  • Adequate response time is limited to hours because of the relentless and corrosive nature of the protein-based soot from the grease fire.
  • The residues and odors might not find the walls of your unit much of an impediment, moving into common areas and adjacent units over time.

Why Is SERVPRO the Answer?

Our crews have experience eliminating smoke and soot residues and odors in confined spaces. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training is the industry standard, and our state-of-the-art products, tools, and equipment are the precise match required for the challenges of kitchen fire damage restoration.

Call (917) 423-6364 to reach our highly-qualified team when you cope with the aftermath of an apartment fire. Familiarity with the research that informs best practices is why SERVPRO of Lower East Side Manhattan is the obvious choice.

Do I Have to Replace My Hardwood Floor After Water Damage in my New York City home?

6/9/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged flooring The sooner you start, the mitigation efforts have the potential to lessen the loss, call now.

SERVPRO techs know fast actions and advanced drying methods can assist in the restoration of your New York City home

When water pours across your hardwood floor in your New York City home from a plumbing mishap or appliance failure, it can cause a feeling of a total loss. However, if the extraction and drying process begins quickly after the first event, there is a good chance your investment in your flooring can get saved.

What Difference Can Professional Water Restoration Services Make?

SERVPRO technicians sometimes arrive on-site for water restoration services in New York homes to find that the property owner has already attempted to remove the water and dry the premises. This inability of consumer-grade equipment to properly extract water and dry the structure and contents can cause too much exposure to elevated moisture and render items unrecoverable through the cleaning and drying methods used by the techs. With rapid extraction and drying, hardwood floorboards can get dried in place and have the potential for a full recovery from water loss.

How Does the Water Damage Cleanup Process Work?

It starts with determining the true scope of the issue in the property using their various types of detection equipment. This allows the techs to peer behind walls and under floors to see the migration path of the water on-site and establish a solid cleanup plan for the home. The techs typically perform the following actions:
    •   Water extraction using their professional equipment
    •    Drying of the property using both air movers and dehumidifiers
    •    The use of specialized drying equipment on areas such as hardwood flooring
    •    Cleaning and sanitizing the loss area
    •    Any odor control applications necessary

SERVPRO of Lower East Side Manhattan at (917) 423-6364 has the equipment and experience to clean up and restore properties with any type or size of water damage. The sooner you start, the mitigation efforts have the potential to lessen the loss, call now.

How do I protect my floors after a water leak?

Not all flooring behaves the same after it comes in contact with water. Depending on the material and installation process, you may face different issues during restoration. Our SERVPRO crew detects the telltale signs of significant damage and adjusts its efforts accordingly. Some signs include-

  • Buckling of hardwood floors
  • Detachment of laminate flooring
  • Excess humidity under carpet pads

You don't need to worry about identifying floor damage; our SERVPRO of Lower East Side does that for you. Call us at (917) 423-6364 and let us leave your home, "Like it never even happened."

The CDC encourages cleaning of high-touch surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, light switches, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets and tables. Other spaces mentioned in the CDC’s guidance for commercial spaces include:

  • Kitchen/Food Areas
  • Bathrooms
  • Schools/Classrooms
  • Offices
  • Retail Spaces
  • Water Fountains
  • Shelving/Racks
  • Sales Counters
  • Carpets and Rugs
  • Stair Handrails
  • Elevator Cars
  • Playground Equipment
  • Fitness Equipment

Specialized Products

The CDC recommends usage of a labeled hospital-grade disinfectant with claims against similar pathogens to the coronavirus. Multiple products in the SERVPRO product line carry the EPA-approved emerging pathogens claims. While there is currently no product tested against this particular strain of the coronavirus, we are following all guidelines as provided by the CDC and local authorities.

Cleaning crew working at the completion of construction project. Keep your job site clean and well managed with SERVPRO of Lower East Side/Downtown Manhattan

There is practically no construction job in New York City that doesn't worry about the amount of space available to complete the job and work comfortably. This was something a little new to us about 6 years ago when we opened our first New York City SERVPRO franchise. Being from Rhode Island often times our construction crews and construction clean-up crews had room to work in large spaces, places to put dumpsters or bullbags and even store equipment on-site without the worry that we would be impeding upon space needed for others. Now that we have been in the city for a few years we have found our niche in offering efficient, compact and affordable professional construction cleaning services and project management in all 5 boroughs. We are available to help manage construction projects in New York City, call our offices today!

Time to Clean Your Buildings Duct Work

9/30/2019 (Permalink)

After a warm summer and the beginning of a very warm fall, it is hard to think about the cold of winter that is ahead. But with less than 100 days to go until Christamas it is in the back of all of our minds. But before the cold weather gets here it is a good idea to check out your heating system and make sure everything is ready to go. If your building, home or business has ducts it is probably best to have your ductwork cleaned and replace all filters before turning on the heat. 

If you need seasonal ductwork cleaning in your building give our office a call today. We are now scheduling commercial and large residential ductwork cleaning services throughout New York City.
