Guardian Has Moved!!!

We've moved! Guardian Service Industries is now located at 55 Water Street!



About 55 Water Street
55 Water Street is a 687-foot (209 m) tall skyscraper in the Financial District of Lower ManhattanNew York City, on the East River. The 53 story, 3.5 million square feet (325,000 m2) structure was completed in 1972. Emery Roth & Sons designed the building, which is tied with 277 Park Avenue as the 40th tallest building in New York City. When it was completed it was the largest office building in the world, and is still the largest in New York by floor area. In an arrangement with the Office of Lower Manhattan Development, it was built on a superblock created from four adjoining city blocks, suppressing the western part of Front Street.
Its closest competitors in square footage are the Met Life Building at 3,140,000 square feet (292,000 m2) and 111 Eighth Avenue at 2,900,000 square feet (270,000 m2). One World Trade Center roughly has the same square footage (3.5 million square feet). The now-destroyed World Trade Center was also bigger when it opened in 1970-71.

About Guardian Pest Control
Successful pest control doesn’t just start with science – it continues day in and day out to help ensure your property is protected from pests and the damage they can do. Every Guardian Pest Control Specialist is trained to assess your building’s unique characteristics, then implement and monitor an Integrated Pest Management plan based in science…created just for you.
What is Integrated Pest Management? Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest control that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment.

What type of pests do we help with?

·        Bird control and management
·        Chute Management
·        Crawling Insects (roaches, ants, termites, spiders, etc.)

Frozen Plumbing & Burst Pipes

Below Zero Temperatures This Weekend

We are about to get temperatures that we have not seen in this area for a couple of years. What that means is that pipes that may not have frozen in the last couple of years could freeze this weekend. 

Please pay special attention to the following in your facilities - Any construction that has been done in the last year or 2. Penetrations that did not affect pipes last year, could freeze them this weekend. Those areas should be checked periodically. Pay particular attention to “curtain” or outside walls where work was done. Sprinkler work that is open to outside air penetrations: Loading docks, outside air plenum rooms, roof mechanical rooms, stairwells on outside walls and fire stairs that exit directly to the street. 
-          All OA dampers should be air tight when closed
-          Some buildings may have to shut outside hose spigots 


Remember, if a sprinkler system is in danger of freezing, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO isolate a drain a portion of it (CHECK LOCAL CODES AND YOUR LOCAL FIRE HOUSE), BUT YOU MUST NOTIFY CENTRAL STATION AND FDNY (or local) DISPATCH


Any pipe that freezes may not leak unit the weather warms up, so be diligent all the way through next week after the temps rise a bit. Please make sure all heat trace that is supposed to be working is in fact pulling amps.
