Broken Water Main in Miramar?

Water is gushing out of a broken water pipe, flooding the ground. We mitigate commercial water damage in Pembroke Pines.

Water main disaster in Miramar.

I was so tired of hearing the construction work on the street outside my office window, but boy was I surprised when I heard the sound of water gushing and looked out to see a small geyser on our front lawn! The water main was accidentally damaged by the excavation equipment, and the water was flooding the entrance to our offices.

Advanced technology and equipment.

We called SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar, and they arrived on site quickly and immediately began the restoration process. They set up powerful, industrial-grade water extraction equipment that continually pumped the water out of our building and front entrance until the water main was shut off. They used high-speed air dryers and air movers and documented the drying process to ensure normal moisture levels were restored to the area. I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently they worked. We were able to return to business as usual the next day!

Pembroke Pine Pets Need Emergency Planning, Too!

Do you have an emergency plan in place for your pets in the event of a disaster? SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar knows that our pets are important members of our families and they should be included in a family’s evacuation plan. Here are some planning tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to take into consideration when developing your plan:

  • Have an evacuation plan for your pet

Many public shelters and hotels do not allow pets inside, so locate a safe place where you can take your pets before disasters and emergencies happen.

  • Develop a buddy system

Plan with neighbors, friends or relatives to make sure that someone is available to care for or evacuate your pets if you are unable to do so.

  • Have your pet microchipped

Make sure to keep your address and phone number up-to-date and include contact information for an emergency contact outside of your immediate area.

  • Build a kit for your pet

Have one kit for sheltering in place and one kit for evacuation. Include food, water, medicines and review your kit regularly to ensure their contents are fresh.

A Dalmatian puppy is sitting in front of a red fire hydrant. We offer a full range of fire restoration services in Pembroke Pines.

SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar technicians are on-call 24-hours a day and respond to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in the Pembroke Pines area. We have been responding to fire damage emergencies for years, but Dalmatians have been responding to fire emergencies since the 1870s!

According to an article published by the American Kennel Club, Dalmatians are the unofficial mascot for United States firefighters and are still brought into schools today for fire safety education. Dalmatians were adopted for use by firefighters in the 1870s because they got along so well with the horses and would run alongside the carriages all the way to the scene of the fire. Their highly visible black spots made them easy to see and helped improve the visibility of the emergency responders.

Doggy Disaster Mess in Miramar?

A sopping wet and muddy dog is shown. We offer a full range of deep cleaning services in Pembroke Pines.

“Ruff” day in Miramar.

I was frantic when I couldn’t find my pet dog, Chester. I searched the neighborhood and drove around town looking for him. Thoughts of disaster ran through my mind. Feeling sad and defeated, I came home, and to my surprise, Chester was in the house! In my haste to find him, I did not close the door properly, and Chester let himself in. He was covered in mud and was sopping wet. He has a long fur coat that he shook to remove the water, and he splattered mud spots all over the walls and my furniture.

I was so happy he was home that I didn’t have the heart to get mad at him for the disaster I now faced. Mud was splattered on the walls, floors, and countertops in my kitchen and the white carpeting in my living room looked like it would never be white again. The smell of dirty wet dog permeated the house. Thankfully I remembered to call SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar. They sent a team out and cleaned up the mess in no time!

The City of Pembroke Pines has a whole section of its website devoted to severe weather. One section covers hurricane preparedness and discusses the need to be prepared well in advance of hurricane season. This section provides relevant information to Pembroke Pines residents on what is happening in the city before, during, and after a storm and tells residents and business owners what they can do to prepare. It is also suggested that people develop a plan to make sure they have adequate supplies when a big storm hits, as supplies will become very limited when the storm comes in. Here is the first step for developing a hurricane plan from the City of Pembroke Pines website:

STEP 1

Hold a Family Meeting Discuss the hazards of hurricanes. Encourage children to talk about their fears and explain some of the things you’ll be doing to keep everyone safe.

Flood Safety Measures

Florida has its share of flooding situations, and SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar has been responding to storm and flooding emergencies in Pembroke Pines for years. We know that every minute counts when it comes to mitigating flood damage, and when you call us, we will arrive quickly and will immediately begin the cleanup and restoration process to minimize the potential for further damage.

Here are some flood safety measures from The City of Pembroke Pines website:

  • Do not walk through flowing water. Drowning is the most frequent cause of death during a flood, especially a flash flood. Currents can be deceptive; six inches of moving water can knock you over. Use a pole or stick to ensure that the ground is still there before you go through an area where water is not flowing.
  • Do not drive through a flooded area. More people drown in cars than anywhere else. Do not drive around road barriers; the road or bridges may be washed out.
  • Stay away from power lines and electrical wires. The second-largest killer after drowning is electrocution. Electrical currents can travel through water. Call 1-800-4-OUTAGE (1-800-468-8243) to report a hazardous condition such as a downed power line.
