Can Flooding Happen at Any Time of the Year?
Bronx Properties are Always at Risk of Flooding, but our SERVPRO Team is Prepared to Help With a Fast and Confident Response.
No matter what time of the year,Bronxhomes and apartments can fall victim to violent storms and substantial weather events that compromise the structural integrity of buildings in the borough. In some situations, water creates a path through a structure with force and pressure common to natural flooding events. Other emergencies might see the collapse of roofs, structural breaches, or other openings that allow water flow to penetrate the property.
During the winter months, flood damage in homes becomes more common than many property owners realize. Heavy snowfall can lay on roofs for weeks, testing the limitations of aging underlayment, joists, and other supports. The same devastating flooding can occur during warmer months as well when violent storms with hurricane strength make landfall at New York City and affect hundreds of properties.
What Can Be Done to Remove Standing Water?
Whether the damage occurs from flash flooding after torrential rainfall or direct water flow from a damaged roof, standing water is a standard obstacle for flood-damaged homes. There are several tools in our arsenal that we can use to begin removing surface water shortly after we arrive. Many choices we have in this area vary based on the type of damage and the severity of the situation. Removing standing water often involves one of the following tools:
- Submersible Pumps
- Trash Pumps
- Truck-Mount Pumps
- Wet Vacuums
