Fort Lauderdale Restoration Expert - Flood Damage Restoration
Nature is at its worst when it mercilessly unleashes a stream of water upon an inhabited land, shrouding every home and building in its wrath. For all you know, it could have been a passing storm, which managed to stick on and rain destruction upon the land. The Fort Lauderdale, FL area is no stranger to such events, and even if it wasn’t nature that created a flood situation, we’ve first-hand dealt with cases, where plumbing failures or overflowing tanks were blamed for the flood within a property.
Natural or manmade, nothing can be more disheartening than finding your belongings submerged in water. However, it’s not as hopeless as it seems, because you have Fort Lauderdale Restoration Expert by your side. We work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, keeping our line 954-363-0411 open, just so we could relieve our clients facing such contingencies.
What you can do and what you can’t:
‘It’s just water’, that’s exactly what people tell themselves, before they decide to get down to work, attempting to fix the problem on their own. The fact is, it’s NOT just water. If it’s barely a few inches of water due to a faucet leak, you can mop up the place and set up fans to dry it all up. But in cases of floods caused due to natural calamities or due to major plumbing failures or sewage backup, you never know the level of contamination the water carries. Venturing into such water is hazardous to your health. Moreover, electricity and water can prove to be a lethal combination, if the power mains aren’t shut off. Also, even if you do manage to manually pump out the water it doesn’t guarantee that the property gets dried up completely.
The least you can do is stay safe, shut off electrical lines, try to move items to a dry place and seek expert help. There’s a reason why floods are so damaging: it’s all down to the delays in seeking help. Don’t make the same mistake; rather call in our team and leave the rest to us!
The right way to recovery after a flood:
A local hardware sump pump or household cleaning items aren’t going to do the trick, as stated earlier. When you call Fort Lauderdale Restoration Expert, we adopt a rather strategic approach to it, that minimizes losses and helps you put your life back together in no time.
Once we get there, we gauge the safety level of the property. Some structures may have taken a hit, proving fatal to venture into the property. Our experts will run a quick check and take the necessary measures such as shutting off the main lines, or wearing protective gear to tackle contamination, before they start.
The drying process:
What may take days with an ordinary pump, will only require hours using our state-of-the-art extraction units. Once all the standing water is extracted, we then bring out dehumidifiers, air movers and blowers, which when used in combination can dry everything thoroughly.
Some of your items may be far too damaged to be restored. The wallpaper might need a change, and the floor could be stained. We don’t dispose anything until it’s strictly necessary and carry our extensive restoration work to salvage everything, right from your furniture to your furnishing.
