Has your home or business been damaged by water from a broken pipe, leaking roof, malfunctioning appliance, a clogged drain that has backed up, groundwater seepage, a slab leak, or heavy rain?
Whatever the cause, it is extremely important that you remove the excess water and dry out your floors, walls, or ceilings as soon as possible. Why? Because standing water isn’t just standing there, it’s rapidly working itself into the wood, plaster and concrete. The longer you wait to take care of the excess moisture the worse it’ll get.
Water infiltrates deeper and gets absorbed into everything. The resulting mold gets harder and harder to remove. The smell gets worse. Your home’s value decreases, and the cost of repair increases every second you wait to take action.
First Call 24-7 provides expert water damage restoration services to all commercial and residential property owners in Palm Beach County, including Lake Worth.
Call us 24/7 when you notice water anywhere it shouldn’t be in your home or place of business. Our crews are available any time of day or night – even on holidays – to stop the water damage from getting worse (mitigation), and then repair the damage so your property is back to the way it was before (restoration).
The action you should take is to call us now. We are available 24/7 to dispatch a crew to your home or business to start the process of extracting the water and drying out all wet surfaces. This is known as “water damage mitigation” – which means putting a stop to the damage that water causes and preventing further damage from affecting your property.
We accomplish this by doing the following:
As you can see, this first step in the process of dealing with water damage is meant to put a halt to any further structural damage (or mold growth) so that the next step can proceed, which is water damage restoration.
The restoration process has one main goal: restoring your home or business property to its pre-damaged condition.
So, if the mitigation process results in your ceilings and/or walls being removed, carpet and/or flooring being torn out, etc., then these structures need to be repaired, rebuilt, or replaced so that you can get back to living in your home, or working in your place of business just like you were before the disaster occurred.
Sounds simple, right? Well, it can be when we’re dealing with minimal water damage that the property owner was able to spot quickly and call for help right away. However, there are many times, for example, when the property owner is away on vacation (or at work) and the water damage is extensive and has had many hours or days to seep deep into the property’s structures. In a scenario like this, restoration is more involved – but don’t worry, we have the experience, equipment, and technology to handle this situation, or even worse.
First Call 24–7 provides emergency water damage recovery services, 7 days per week 365 days per year to stop the source of your water issue and provide our qualified technicians to remove the water and begin the drying process. Our proven strategy helps prevent further seepage into your drywall, floors, carpet and furniture which in turn causes further damage and mold.
We understand that having a water damage problem is very upsetting. To make the process as stress free as possible for you, we take care of everything for you (i.e. insurance claims, full documentation, cleanup of possessions, etc.) while alleviating the financial burden on you by keeping our costs low. Each restoration job is different and the process to remediate flood and water damage will vary based on how extensive the damage is.
Yet, regardless of the size of the job, we treat all of our customers the same…BETTER than family. This means that all jobs include a thorough inspection and assessment, water extraction, dehumidification, and sanitizing. We lead our industry in using advanced techniques and the latest technological drying devices. Throughout the entire process, we keep you and your insurance carrier informed every step of the way. You can trust First Call 24–7 to handle all of your water damage cleanup needs!

Lake Worth History
Lake Worth, FL was once called “Jewel” at the start of the 20th century. Fannie James a landowner in 1911, sold the primary area of this land to Palm Beach Farms Company. It was during this time that William Greenwood and Harold Bryant started their plans to construct a city alongside the water.
At a later stage, a railway-line was built that connected Miami to West Palm Beach, and this area was given the name Lucerne. However, since there was already another area with this name, the city was renamed “Lake Worth”. The city experienced several setbacks, mainly due to a flood that occurred in 1812, and a devastating hurricane in 1928. These caused significant disruptions to Lake Worth’s developments. However, over the past few decades this city has experienced rapid growth, and today it is a thriving community.
