Plumbing Burst Cleanup in Bronx House
Plumbing Mishaps Can Wreak Havoc In Your Bronx Home, SERVPRO Can Help
With many of the homes in the Bronx built in the 1910s and 1920s still standing in neighborhoods, these pieces of history can become great single-family houses for the right buyer. Insulation is often a concern in these structures, however. Inadequate insulation of areas like plumbing can lead to pipe bursts during the cold snaps common to the winter months.
Once a pipe bursts, the ensuing water damage in Bronx residences can be a considerable challenge for a homeowner to clean up and restore on their own. Because networking of this plumbing gets installed in the structural cavities between the first and second floor, a breach in your pipe at this point could spread quickly throughout the floor below, and damage sub flooring and carpeting of upstairs rooms. Our SERVPRO professionals can help in many ways when burst pipes occur, from our fast restoration and mitigation response to our in-house team of licensed residential contractors for repairs and reconstruction.
With aging materials like ceiling tile and thin wallboard, a heavier flow of water against these materials can quickly oversaturate them and cause collapses or structural failures. The emergency services that our SERVPRO team offers include controlled demolition to access the damage to your plumbing and repair burst pipes and utilize evaporative drying techniques on joists and supports that can stay installed.
Collapsed ceiling systems require discarding debris and clearing residues and dirt from surfaces and flooring. Often after a water loss drying has completed, our technicians must continue restoration in the form of carpet cleaning and wood flooring recovery. With potent cleaners and cutting-edge equipment, we can make even the most substantial water loss incidents in your home, “Like it never even happened.”
Your multi-level family home might have substantial history, but be mindful of when its construction indicates a lack of proper insulation or plumbing maintenance. Give our SERVPRO of South Bronx team a call to help whenever disasters strike. We can arrive quickly and have the tools and the technicians to recover the damage as soon as possible. You can reach us 24/7 at (347) 590-9902.
