Wooden floors are probably the most damaged due to the water damage because it has a tendency to swell and buckle as it gets wet and can’t be dried out rapidly or properly. Wooden floors needs to be dried progressively and equally. Rapid drying might cause damage or cracking.
Hiring our restoration company raises the chance that your wood floor will be restored. The skills, expertise, and special equipment used by our professionals will minimize replacing expenses as larger areas are going to be restored.
In todays homes, finished flooring materials have become more popular than carpet. This changes the way we deal with the restoration procedure, due to water damage. How the flooded material will be handled is determined by the following conditions: reaction time, flooring type, replacement value, type of wood, type of finish, technique of installation, quantity of moisture, and the amount of water damage already evident.
As in all water related situations, time is crucial. Your floors are at a greater threat for permanent water damage if the moisture is not taken care of right away. The more time the moisture stays without treatment, the higher the risk of permanent damage is. Hardwood floors will absorb moisture slower because of the porosity of the product. Our professionals are happy to respond anytime throughout the day and night to the unexpected emergency.
When drying wood floors, the procedure should not be stopped before the moisture content is lowered to under 4% of the dry standard of the floor. Allow our specialists in assisting you to dry your hardwood floors effectively.
As soon as the hardwood floor have been dried correctly there might still be damage to the finish of the floor. Finishes such as waxes and polyurethane could slow down the evaporation of the absorbed moisture. They’ll often have to be removed in the drying process to enable moisture elimination.
