Hardwood Flooring Water Restoration in Erie County

8/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of West Erie County uses specialized drying equipment and industrial grade dehumidifiers to remove the water as quickly as possible.

Hardwood floors are a great addition to any home and can boost overall value of the home, as well as increasing aesthetic appeal.

Maybe you bought your home with hardwood floors already installed, or maybe you just spent the money to have your carpeting ripped out and new floors put in.

In either case, water damage to hardwood floors can be an overwhelming and daunting task to clean up.

Water damage can occur from innocent children trying to be independent, pet accidents, broken appliances, and severe weather such as storms and heavy rainfall.  So, what can you do when water hits the floors?

Unfortunately, in many cases of water loss incidents or flooding, hardwood flooring can end up being a costly material to remove, and ultimately replace.

When the flooring gets wet, the wood absorbs the water and begins to swell and warp. Even if the water is only on the surface, water can seep in through the cracks and loosen the glue holding the flooring to the ground.

Depending on the type of water, you may want to clean it up yourself or call the technicians at SERVPRO of West Erie County. We use specialized drying equipment and industrial grade dehumidifiers to remove the water and moisture as quickly and efficiently as possible.

It important to remove the water quickly and dry the flooring. The timing could potentially save the hardwood flooring in the long run and prevent mold growth.

The secret to preventing mold and mildew is not just the elimination of water, but dirt as well. Hardwood flooring and carpeting are the same when it comes to mold and mildew; dirt and water mix together and can lead to mold and mildew when left unattended.

Our general contractors can also address other facets of recovery such as, demolition and re-installation of hardwood flooring should the water damage be too extensive to repair, as well as temporary construction solutions like boarding and tarping to prevent further damage

Caring for a hardwood floor after water damage can be a difficult task. Luckily, SERVPRO of West Erie County is here to help with specialized equipment and training. We believe in repairing as opposed to replacing, and we have the experience and expertise to get the job done correctly!
