Storm & Water Damage Restoration in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Hurricane Irma was a mighty storm that caused widespread destruction across Florida in September 2017. Fort Lauderdale was hit particularly hard, facing gale-force winds, torrential rains, and a strong storm surge. One of the many businesses affected in the area was the world-renowned Carnival Cruise Lines. But it wasn’t their ships that had been damaged; it was their 168,000-square-foot training center, filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars of specialized equipment and staging floors.

Carnival called the pros at Royal Restoration, and we arrived on the scene shortly afterward. The combination of hurricane-force winds and driving rains had caused significant structural damage and flooding to the facility. Typically, when the damage is widespread and catastrophic, most businesses opt for demolition and reconstruction. That wasn’t an option for Carnival, based on the intricate floor planning and massive investment they had made in outfitting the property. So, our team of professionals quickly got to work, deploying every asset we had and using specialized techniques to save the unique property.

Industry Specialization: Royal Restoration Specializes in Hospitality Industry Restoration

The hospitality industry encompasses a vast range of businesses and facilities. Each one presents its own unique challenges when it comes to damage restoration. A restaurant suffering from a sewage backup differs greatly from a casino recovering from fire damage. But all these facilities have one thing in common; Royal Restoration knows how to serve them. The challenge with Carnival Cruise Line’s training facility was no match for our team of certified restoration professionals.

We started the recovery process by cleaning up the debris from the wind damage and performing comprehensive water extraction services. One of the most important assets at this particular facility was the specialty flooring used to train all of the staff and performers that board the cruise ships. In order to save the floors, we tented and encapsulated the floors before deploying a specialized heat-driven drying technique. Once the visible water was gone, we used leading-edge probe technology to moisture map the entire property, ensuring every last bit of water was gone. Thanks to our technological expertise and prompt response, the building was salvaged along with all the expensive assets inside.
