“SERVPRO was incredibly responsive. They came within 2 hours of my call, followed up with professional guidance and referrals, and provided a very fair and comprehensive estimate and repair. I would highly recommend their services.” Steven Sumser

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness

“I came back from a trip to a completely flooded studio. Over 1,000sq ft of a puddle, floating rugs, and dirt that had come in when water slipped under our garage door. There are rugs, boxes, and other pieces in the garage, but the water had flooded it all, all the way to the main room.
I called various services, and they all gave me dates and quotes for the following week; I was desperate. Then I found SERVPRO. Their team came in right away and placed all the fans, and removed the dirt. Within a couple of days, we were back to normal. SERVPRO is the BEST you can hire if your property or home has flooded and you need immediate drying! Don’t delay! Call SERVPRO.” Lola Sh

A tropical storm covers the window of a building with rain. Businesses in Miami-Dade County can rely on our fast emergency response time!

When storm waters flood your business, fast action is required to minimize the potential for secondary damage. Our team in Miami Beach restores storm and flooding damage every year using this comprehensive process:

What Causes Hurricanes to Form in South Beach?

8/9/2022 (Permalink)

A storm over the ocean is shown. We respond to commercial storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Miami-Dade County.

Our team in Miami Beach restores storm damage every year in South Beach. During the Atlantic Hurricane Season, tropical storms and hurricanes can occur anytime when the right conditions are present.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s website has helpful information about hurricanes and why they form:

  • Hurricanes are powerhouse weather events that suck heat from tropical waters to fuel their fury. These violent storms form over the ocean, often beginning as a tropical wave—a low-pressure area that moves through the moisture-rich tropics, possibly enhancing shower and thunderstorm activity.

Whipping up a hurricane calls for a number of ingredients readily available in tropical areas:

  • A pre-existing weather disturbance: A hurricane often starts out as a tropical wave
  • Warm water: Water at least 7 degrees Fahrenheitover a depth of 164 feet powers the storm
  • Thunderstorm activity: Thunderstorms turn ocean heat into hurricane fuel
  • Low wind shear: A large difference in wind speed and direction around or near the storm can weaken it

Mix it all together, and you’ve got a hurricane—maybe. Even when all these factors come together, a hurricane doesn’t always develop.
