SERVPRO is the Trusted Choice to Restore Your Fire, Flood, and Water Damaged Home and Business

In the city that never sleeps, you need restoration services that never take time off, either. Our SERVPRO professionals have been proudly serving the Lower East Side and all of the NYC boroughs for years. We have supported hundreds of property owners and business owners to restore their structures after the worst that nature had to offer. From burst pipes during cold snaps to fire restoration and recovery in the sweltering summer heat, you can count on our fast and confident response. 

Fire Damage Restoration  

Fires can be an overwhelming situation, especially when you do not have the time to remove your treasured belongings and possessions from your Lower East Side home. Our SERVPRO team works to provide real-time content management for these items beginning as soon as our professionals arrive for emergency services. Our technicians can immediately start with debris removal and assessing individual contents in the affected areas of the residence. 

Cleaning occurs in some capacity through every stage of restoration and recovery of your Lower East Side property after a fire. One of the most cost-effective approaches that our team has started is on and off-site cleaning for damaged contents. From your furniture to your clothing, your house items can all get affected in different ways by immediate fire loss effects. While we strive to provide on-site cleaning when possible, we also have more intricate and focused cleaning and deodorization available through the pack-out process. This procedure moves damaged contents to our nearby SERVPRO facility for attention and cleaning. 

It is always a priority to save time and money on fire restoration, which makes fire damage mitigation such a vital component of the recovery phase. We have practical and advanced approaches for nearly every obstacle that exists after extinguishing a fire, including foul odors, soot residues, smoke particulates, air quality concerns, and water damage that can exist in your Lower East Side property. 

Storm Damage Restoration 

While fires can be a notoriously destructive disaster, mother nature has also substantially damaged the Lower East Side in even recent years. Storms carry considerable power coming off the Atlantic towards the city. Many of the aging buildings here can suffer structural damages from high winds, hail, heavy snowfall, and torrential rains. Our response to these emergencies is critical, and that begins with both our mitigation technicians and in-house contractors to begin board-up and tarping where necessary. 

Structural breaches are entry points for migrating water, runoff, and wind-driven rain. Understanding where water has gone once it enters your Lower East Side property can make drying and extraction more efficient and effective. This inspection of the property begins with sophisticated moisture detection tools like surface meters and thermography to identify dampness pockets and their severity. Once this happens, we can deploy extraction and drying tools to manage the water damage and flooding concerns quickly. 

As you might expect, getting a home or business back to preloss condition after a destructive storm like a recent hurricane, involves a need for reconstruction. Roof repairs, siding replacement, full-scale build back, and more are all consistent offerings from our in-house licensed contractors. With years in the building trades and helping many other Lower East Side properties, we can help to get your domicile back to normal just as efficiently. 

Commercial Services 

As part of a Large Loss Recovery Team, we can offer real-time restoration solutions amid disasters for Lower East Side commercial properties and businesses. Disasters like water and fire damage can be devastating to your business. However, with a team capable of restoring thousands of square feet of the structure simultaneously, we can get you back in business as fast as possible. 

Cleaning up your structure does not always have to follow after a disaster, however. Many Lower East Side businesses can benefit from the same premium cleaning practices we would use in post-disaster restoration for aesthetic improvements to their facility. With sophisticated equipment and trained professionals, we can offer services such as: 

  • Carpet cleaning
  • Surface cleaning
  • Stain removal
  • Odor removal
  • Vandalism cleaning 

Premier cleaning is not something that you Lower East Side business needs every day. So we can work with you to develop a regular schedule of cleaning around your operating hours so that we do not hamper day to day operations. We can also schedule a one-time cleaning on a case-by-case situation where conditions exceed your custodians and maintenance team's abilities and equipment. 

Water Damage Restoration 

With water losses being such a standard callout for our team, we stay prepared to help Lower East Side properties with whatever loss situation their home or business faces. There are dozens of reasons that your home could suffer a water emergency, from a destructive pipe burst to a more persistent leak behind a dishwasher. However, your residence combats the presence of moisture and water where it should not be, and our SERVPRO professionals can help with confident restoration services that address both the cause and effect of water losses. 

Extraction and drying are still the staples of water restoration in the Lower East Side, and as such, offer the most diversity in available equipment and practices. We have hundreds of air movers of different types and styles. We also have multiple extractor units from wet vacuums to electric submersible pumps. These units, including advanced dehumidifiers, address relative humidity when evaporative drying begins. This blend of drying and moisture removal can help many Lower East Side homes to protect exposed materials and contents. 

With a licensed team of in-house contractors, we have more versatility in our recovery approaches after a water loss. With a fast transition to reconstruction and post-disaster cleaning after mitigation, our SERVPRO professionals Lower East Side can make choices based on what is most cost-effective and efficient for our customers.
