Storm Damage Flood Damage and Cleanup in Your Fort Lauderdale Home Flooding can happen very quickly. When you and your family are safe, it is time to contact SERVPRO for drying out and remediation services.

Team SERVPRO Quickly Dries Out Your Flooded Property

While longer days and warmer weather come with Spring, the season also brings conditions such as heavy rains which could increase your risk for a flood in Fort Lauderdale. Spring storms can bring several inches of rain in only a few hours, or they can stall out over one area for several days. These heavy rains can bring severe flooding by overwhelming the ground, overflowing storm drains, or causing rivers to spill out of their banks or levees.
 
When the rains in your area have caused flooding in your Fort Lauderdale home, you are left with quite a mess on your hands, no matter how much water got inside. Flooding and flood damage completely disrupts your daily life and is something that needs to be attended to right away. Let our SERVPRO staff help you get the water out and dry your residence and possessions so you can return to your normal life.
 
Even after we are done getting all the water out of your property, our job is not done. Structural items, like subfloors and walls, may require cleaning. We use professional products to make your home look as good, if not better; then it was before the flooding.
 
SERVPRO staff clean and deodorize any carpeting which was exposed to the floodwaters. We choose a carpet cleaning method which is appropriate for the level of soiling. We look at things such as if the dirt is primarily on the fiber tips or if it is ground down into the fibers, if the carpet fibers are very matted, and if they stiff and sticky. We have various methods of cleaning we use depending on how severe the soiling was. In the case of grey water where we are salvaging the carpet, we use a more aggressive method.
 
Most of the time, we need to clean other items in your home as well. All contents exposed to water or high humidity need to be evaluated for cleaning needs. Some wood furniture requires cleaning and polishing after exposure to high humidity. We also check clothing, closets, and storage areas for contents that need cleaning and deodorizing. All photographs and wall hangings are also checked for damage from condensation and high humidity. When it comes to electronics, they can require unique drying and cleaning services to restore them, so we recruit the help of other professionals.
 
SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South wants to make sure your entire home in Pembroke Pines, Davie, or Weston is dry and clean before we say that our job is done. Give us a call at (954) 776-2000 as soon as you need us so we can help you.
