Water Damage – Manhattan Home
Water damage to this Manhattan living room was the result of a water heater on the opposite side of the living room wall experiencing a broken pipe joint which allowed the total contents of the water heater to flow onto the wall and baseboard. The homeowners discovered the event immediately and shut off the water to prevent more damage. But enough damage had been done that the homeowners felt they needed a professional to clean up the water damage and replace the old water heater. SERVPRO of Upper West Side provides 24/7 emergency service in instances like this and would be able to immediately dispatch a crew of industry certified technicians to clean up the water. Our experienced crew would remove the broken water heater and suction up any standing water. Then they would drill holes in the base of the wall to allow forced warm air to be forced into the wall cavity to help dry the hidden moisture. When the drying phase was complete, the water heater would be replaced.
