Restoring Water Damages to Your Mt. Vernon Apartment Building

1/16/2018 (Permalink)

Water damage can quickly affect several properties at the same time in an apartment building due to all the rooms and areas being connected.

Help Keep Tenants Safe By Calling SERVPRO When Water Damage Affects Your Apartment Buildings

Your Mt. Vernon apartment building is home to several families that directly count on you to handle problems as they arise. As the owner of the building and landlord to those leasing properties inside, most of the maintenance and upkeep of the facility falls to you directly or to whomever you choose as a subcontractor for the tasks. You might not always be in preventative maintenance mode on your building, but failure to keep up with the plumbing inside can create some costly problems for you.

Water damage to your Mt. Vernon building can happen in several ways. You can have a compromised roof that buckles under the weight of heavy snowfall and ice that has not melted away. Appliances like washing machines in a central location for tenant use can overflow or malfunction. Pipes can freeze and burst, or just become too old to handle the fluctuating pressures and disconnect. Any of these scenarios can result in water damage to the building, but not only this, you have to clean the mess quickly before it affects the families living in the building directly.

Since all of the rooms and areas connect via walls, ceilings, or floors, it is not hard to see how a water emergency might quickly affect several properties at the same time. In these situations, restoration specialists like our SERVPRO team can significantly reduce the damage that could occur and work fast to restore what has already happened.

Locating the source of the problem is the first step in our SERVPRO technician’s initial assessment of the situation. If the problem was the plumbing, the water gets turned off to that section until the plumbing can get repaired. A hole in the roof can be boarded up or tarped to prevent further element interference while the restoration occurs and the area is getting prepped for reconstruction.

With so many families and tenants to think about in your Mt. Vernon apartment building, call the restoration specialists that you can trust. SERVPRO of Merrimack has an emergency response team that is available 24/7 to handle any water emergency that you might have. Give us a call today at (603) 262-9293.
