Fast Fort Lauderdale Water Restoration from SERVPRO® 

Fort Lauderdale is famous for its tropical rainforest climate. A relatively cooler and drier season starts in mid-fall. It runs through early spring, ideal for seasonal residents and vacationers looking for a warm and comfortable refuge from snow and cold. The temperature rises, and the risk of precipitation increases in late spring and summer, with showers occasionally approaching monsoon-type intensity. The heaviest rains are most common during May through October. The region receives an average of 60.95 inches of precipitation per year, significantly more than the national average of 30.25 inches.

Disaster restoration companies in South Florida must always prepare for possible severe weather and the damage it can cause. SERVPRO® has the resources to scale its response to catastrophic situations affecting many property owners in the devastated area. As the weather warms and atmospheric shifts begin in May, our (IICRC)-certified crews at SERVPRO guarantee reliable inspection, cleaning, and restoration services and are ready to respond to rainy-season emergency water removal in Ft. Lauderdale North. After extraction and cleaning, we dry out your property for comfort and appearance and to restore function.

A severe and unseasonably early series of rainstorms on April 12, 2023, caught everyone in Fort Lauderdale off guard. In just 12 hours, 25.6 inches of rain fell on the city, more than 40 percent of the annual precipitation. Flash flooding was inevitable as one downpour followed another, a phenomenon known as "training." The relentless rain saturated the ground, causing deep pooling that swamped vehicles and directed runoff into homes and commercial buildings throughout the affected area. The weather pattern produced the rainiest day in the city's history, resulting in the following: 

  • Fort Lauderdale mayor calling a state of emergency
  • School and airport closures
  • Drivers abandoning cars
  • Greater than 2 million in property damage
  • Thankfully no deaths

Our training, experience, and extensive inventory of high-efficiency equipment set us apart, making SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North, a regional leader in water removal. We are just a click away.
