Ft. Lauderdale Homeowners Know to Call Upon SERVPRO for Restoration Services
Every Restoration Detail Completed after Ft. Lauderdale Property Disaster is Why SERVPRO Is an Industry Leader
Our long term experience in the restoration industry means Ft. Lauderdale residents coping with water, fire, mold, or storm damage know the company to call for help. Investment in commercial quality equipment, capable of rapid cleanup and thorough drying is one of our priorities. The other is an investment in training a skilled and committed team of restoration professionals, holders of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifications (IICRC) in a broad range of specialties.
The source of a water loss in Ft. Lauderdale is most often the malfunction of an appliance, a tub or sink overflow, or plumbing leak, not a storm or hurricane. This kind of water damage can sneak up on a homeowner, occurring over some time unnoticed, yet causing significant harm to structural components, fixtures, and contents of a home. If your vigilance fails to avoid every leak or spill, we can help get rid of the water and dry out your home.
Plumbing, both supply and waste piping, runs between walls and floors and ceilings. Your first signal might be a dark stain or bulge on a surface. Stepping in a puddle near a cabinet can reveal a long-term leak under a kitchen sink that collected behind kickboards. A dishwasher or water heater can break, spreading gallons of water across floors and into crawl spaces or foundations. Every minute spent wondering what to do means more damage. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) are ready to respond as soon as we receive your call.
Trapped water and soaked building materials might need controlled demolition strategies to reach the moisture and remove irreparably damaged drywall, insulation, or other structural components. We can take on that task as well as the rebuild after the water evacuates and the wet areas dry. Our full spectrum of services is why SERVPRO can take you from a wet mess to a fully restored space without the stress of hiring ever-changing crews and contractors to resolve the problem.
Fire damage to your Ft. Lauderdale home can be one of the most devastating events in your entire lifetime. Engaging the services of a disaster restoration company that can take you from the shock and helplessness of viewing the scene minutes after the firefighters leave through the dozens of mitigation, remediation, and restoration tasks needed to resume your comfortable life is the key to overcoming the stress and fear. We are uniquely positioned to provide those services.
From removing gallons of filthy, debris-filled water to removing every bit of soot clinging to surfaces, our IICRC-trained Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) and Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) are the answer to your fire restoration needs. We are trained to match cleaning products, methods, and tools with the various types of soot seen after a fire -- dry, wet, or protein-based. Getting it right is vital as conventional cleaning techniques often make the situation much worse.
Many of our technicians hold more than one certification, meaning that the crews move from task to task seamlessly. Contents frequently move to our production facility for specialized care, and our deodorization experts employ a range of techniques to eliminate, not just cover up the smoky smells. We also offer rebuilding services, saving you the frustration and effort of lining up different professionals to complete the fire damage restoration project from start to finish.
When mold damage in your Ft. Lauderdale home takes hold, it is essential to understand that no process exists that can eliminate mold completely. Mold spores are always in the atmosphere and settled on surfaces, usually troubling no one. When exposed to moisture, however, spores begin a growth cycle that can damage building materials and expose susceptible individuals to higher levels or irritants and allergens. Mold remediation can remove active mold colonies and reduce the number of spores. When paired with moisture control, mold damage recedes.
Our mold remediation crews use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol developed for schools and commercial buildings to rid your home of active mold colonies and reduce mold spore levels to more normal levels. We contain the work area to prevent drift of the spores using physical barriers and air scrubbers. Moldy materials are removed and bagged for appropriate disposal, and EPA-registered antimicrobials treat the affected area to prevent regrowth.
If the moldy area is extensive and porous materials like drywall and insulation were severely damaged, we can also remove those materials and replace them. Our ability to take a problematic mold damage situation from severely compromised structural components in need of at least partial demolition to reconstruction completed to the highest standards is why SERVPRO is the mold remediation contractor to engage. Our construction team is ready to follow up where our licensed and certified mold remediation team left off.
The tropical storm and hurricane season stretches for six months in Ft. Lauderdale. Although plenty of forecasters give people in the area information on the significant storms as they develop, it is only when the extreme weather nears our city or makes landfall that the full extent of their damage potential becomes apparent. Having a professional partner in case of severe damage is critical to your peace of mind as a resident of southeastern Florida. We are always prepared to help.
Preparation for hurricanes and other intense storm systems goes a long way toward making you feel in control and ready to shield your family from the worst of the June through November storm season. Think about a consultation with our team in advance of any storm activity to pinpoint any vulnerabilities in your home. We can explain and offer to you our ERP Emergency READY Profile Plan which can help mitigate or prevent damages. As part of your hurricane go-kit be sure to have our number available so we can connect to schedule an assessment if your home suffers damage.
Flood damage, including storm surge, is a significant risk during the hurricane season. One of the reasons why SERVPRO is successful when hired for flood damage remediation is our familiarity with the complications presented by saltwater contamination. Expect us to follow best practices when responding to saltwater flooding, including freshwater flushing before water removal and drying.
