After Envelope Breaches, Water Intrusion for Brooklyn Apartments Can be Destructive

Brooklyn is no stranger to storm systems and heavy snowfall throughout specific seasons of the year. With the weather's damage to aging apartment complexes, our SERVPRO professionals are standing by to help with extraction, drying, and cleaning. 

Water Penetration After Roof Vulnerabilities 

Severe storm events are not uncommon and can result in flood damage to Brooklyn apartments and houses. Torrential rain and brutal winds can damage roof assemblies to allow for moisture and runoff penetration to the structure. Addressing these situations as quickly as possible is vital. 

Water Removal Options  

Removing standing water and spreading surface water damage can be vital to protect the property and its contents. Apartment buildings common to the borough can leave multiple units exposed to water damage after the flooding. We have vacuuming and pumping approaches to resolve standing water concerns and promote faster drying afterward quickly. 

Drying Techniques for Confined Spaces 

Smaller spaces can often be a challenging position for drying and moisture removal. Many of the attic spaces or crawl spaces for these properties experience heavy moisture damages. Reaching all exposed surfaces can be difficult with the size and scope of most available restoration equipment. Wall and ceiling assemblies, for example, can hold standing water and damp pockets until secondary effects like mold growth occur. To counteract these outcomes, we have drying tools to help like:

  • Positive/Negative Pressure Systems
  • Low-Profile Centrifugal Air Movers
  • Desiccant Dehumidifiers
  • Portable Heaters

Flood damage to any part of a Brooklyn home or apartment can be devastating. With how fast effects can spread through a residence, our SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn team is available 24/7 to help. We have experienced technicians and leading equipment available when you call (718) 522-4400.
