Water damage? Better call SERVPRO!

So you found some water damage in your home or business and don’t know what to do next. SERVPRO Ft. Lauderdale North and SERVPRO of Plantation are here to help!


Step one: Identify and fix the source of the water

Has it been raining a lot lately and flooded your kitchen? Did the storefront next door have a pipe burst? Identify the cause of the water loss, and do your best to remedy the issue. If water is still coming in to the area, there’s little our teams can do until the problem is fixed- even if it just means shutting off the water main.

Step two: Call SERVPRO of course!

Don’t forget to call your friendly neighborhood SERVPRO! We have an emergency response team available 24/7, any day of the year. If you suffer from water damage, don’t wait to call us. Letting water sit can breed hazardous mold and other harmful germs. In fact, mold can form in as little as three days! If you are unsure how long the water has been sitting, you may want to have a third-party mold test done. The point of this test is to see whether or not mold is present so our professional technicians can treat the issue accordingly.

Step three: You can help

If you don’t want to wait for our team to arrive, you can start the cleanup by mopping up water and setting out fans in the area affected by the water loss to start the drying process. We’ll take over with our professional equipment when we get there.


No one likes being in a water loss situation, but it doesn’t need to be a nightmare. SERVPRO Ft. Lauderdale North and SERVPRO of Plantation have the best crew of experienced and certified professional technicians available to make your water loss situation “Like it never even happened.”
