Restoring Natural Flooding in Bronx Basement Apartments

The flow of water after hard rains is the job of many sanitary workers, and when things work as they should, runoff and even rushing water can stay out of Bronx homes and apartments. Catch basins and storm drains work by directing the flow of water toward these receptacles to ultimately keep them off the roadways, sidewalks, and residences. Basement apartments are particularly susceptible when these designed diversion techniques and collection areas fail.

After a hard rain, residents throughout the borough might be closer to flood damage in Bronx basement apartments than they realize. Storm drains lining the edges of the roadways are only useful when they are entirely open, and in autumn, debris like falling leaves can clog in the grating of these openings, leaving them unable to take on the normal flow of water they originally got designed to address. The result is water pooling and running over the sidewalk – right down to the front of your apartment beneath the street level.

Depending on the longevity of the storm system and the severity of the water flow missing collection by the catch basin or storm sewer, a substantial volume of water can continually threaten your basement apartment. With the door being usually several feet below street level, water can pool in the cavity of the building and the sidewalk until it has an avenue to penetrate the building and flood the apartment. Our SERVPRO professionals have a 24/7 response to water loss emergencies to help.

Our experts strive to provide the most efficient and cost-effective flood recovery, especially in situations where residents contend with several inches – or even feet – of standing water. We have premier extraction tools to clear out the excess, including sump pumps, trash pumps, and our mounted truck extractors. The objective is to reach the point in which our SERVPRO team can begin our necessary drying efforts to protect your installed structural elements and other areas of the building as much as possible.

Addressing flooding in your basement apartment is more common than many property owners might think. Our SERVPRO of South Bronx storm response team stays ready and prepared to mobilize at a moment’s notice to help. Give us a call anytime at (347) 590-9902.
