Finding Where Flood Damage Enters Fort Lauderdale Homes
Stopping Flood Damage Entering the Property
Flooding can be among the more challenging situations that a home faces, making it a condition that restoration professionals must rapidly respond to resolve. SERVPRO is equipped, licensed, and certified to help in all facets of flood recovery, such as:
- Water cleanup

Structural Openings of Main Floor
Flood damage in Fort Lauderdale homes can often occur directly, powering through doorways and openings in the structure. With these events like flash floods, the main floor of the property can be quickly overrun with standing water concerns. We have powerful extractors to help regulate these emergencies, allowing cleaning and drying to begin.
Flooding in the Attic
Roof damages during severe weather the Ft. Lauderdale area experiences can create penetration points in the roof with missing shingles or structural compromise. Water intrusion reaches the connected attic space, requiring low-profile air movers and portable extraction solutions to dry and clean.
Backed Up Drain Intrusions
Floor drains, especially those tied to areas like a garage, can be a point where backup impacts the house. Sewer systems become overrun with water or a blockage, which can occur during flash flooding and severe weather events. Drains feeding into this system can backup to spilling contents in connected areas of the house, even through toilets and other installed fixtures on lower levels.
Driven Water Damage
Heavy rains and strong winds can push rain against vulnerable areas of the house. Most commonly, this is a penetration between siding and the main exterior wall system of the residence, allowing water into the living space. Resolving this requires drying out any structural elements creating this assembly and flooring materials within the house that have been impacted.
