Water Damage Restoration from Severe Weather in Fort Lauderdale
What Restoration Is Necessary After Flooding?
Storm damage and flooding are a persistent threat in the coastal homes and even condominiums of the Fort Lauderdale area. We know the damage that nature can do to structures, so we have a disaster relief team and a Large Loss response unit to help secure homes immediately with board-up, tarping, and mitigation.
The Earliest Efforts to Secure Your Home
Mitigation is a case-by-case situation for water damage restoration in Fort Lauderdale homes. Severe storm systems can leave homes compromised by the elements, letting floodwater into the main living spaces. We must work fast to address these concerns with mitigation strategies like:
- Water Removal - We eliminate standing water in the living space using extractors and vacuums.
- Debris/Muck-Out Cleaning - We remove contaminated debris and muck from the structure using hand tools and vacuums. After removal, we can better assess the condition of the building materials and what controlled demolition is necessary.
- Content Removal - We remove flood-damaged contents from the structure. Anything we can save is moved to our nearby warehouse for restoration and storage.
Removing Ruined Materials
Controlled demolition is a necessary component of flood recovery. Contamination cannot be overcome with porous materials like drywall and carpeting, making it essential to pull out these ruined elements for replacement.
Thorough Drying Solutions for Your Home
Even though many porous materials require removal after exposure to contaminated floodwater, our responding professionals must also have suitable drying solutions to help. We have air movers and dehumidifiers to manage surface water concerns and the humidity in affected rooms. The combination of these tools accounts for much of the drying effort in the house.
Post-storm water damage restoration can take many forms. When flooding is a concern for your home, the prompt arrival of experienced recovery technicians like our SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North team helps to keep your cherished belongings and structure as safe as possible. Call our rapid responders at (954) 734-1006.
