Best Extraction Methods for Manhattan Basement Apartments

Apartment water recovery after flooding can require creative solutions implemented immediately to reduce widespread structural deterioration and more expensive restoration efforts for Manhattan property owners. With some of the high-rise apartment buildings that famously make up the skyline, we need portable yet effective water removal tactics to reduce the need for significant controlled demolition and build back.

Storm systems threatening the borough can produce extreme conditions capable of breaking windows, puncturing roofs, and other scenarios that might lead to a need for flood removal in Manhattan residences. Because of how closely connected the entire apartment and its contents are, a single flooding incident can damage your entire property. Our SERVPRO professionals have multiple choices for fast and thorough extraction, and with an apartment several stories from the ground level, we must consider the best possible tools for the job.

Wet-Vacs / Light Wands

These are among the most popular options as they are the most portable options available to the team. Often these units collect water into their tanks, and those get emptied through open drains in the residence. The advantage to the units is that they do not require discharge hoses. Hence, they are a lightweight and manageable extraction tool designed to excel in smaller, confined areas.

Submersible Pumps

Another lightweight and highly mobile option for our SERVPRO team is the electric submersible pump. In most situations where standing water exceeds 2 inches in depth, these units must be used before the extraction job is finished with the light wands. These lightweight sump pumps’ discharge can be directed to sink drains and other outlets to continually extract standing water.

Specific equipment most ideal for high-efficiency extraction, like our truck-mount pumps, are challenging to use in high-rise apartments. Our SERVPRO of Upper West Side has practical solutions to rapidly dry your flooded apartment to get it back to pre-damaged condition quickly. No matter where you are, We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. Give us a call today at (917) 498-1362.
