Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Hardwood Floors Saved with the Right Equipment

8/19/2022 (Permalink)

A residential kitchen is having their wood floors dried by several large vacuum matts placed as needed Utilizing our Injectidry System to repair the water damage to these hardwood kitchen floors in West Covina. This homeowner was super relieved!

Storms come and go just as quickly. Flood waters create a challenge and we will utilize a Category 3 protocol for cleanup. If the rupture is clean water from a supply line, a protocol of Category 1 water damage will be preferred by most, especially for the treatment of costly materials like real wood.

Honestly, no other flooring is quite the same as genuine hardwood. They add beautiful warmth to your home that no other flooring can do in quite the same way. Part of the commitment to this worthwhile investment is to keep them dry and away from drips and spills. However, when water damage occurs, moisture seeps into the grain of the wood that can quickly cause it to swell, warp, or buckle. Laminate will swell but the damage is irreversible and will need replacing. The floors may seem ruined... but with the right circumstances, if caught in time, they can be saved by calling a professional out for prompt treatment.

As a professional restoration company, SERVPRO utilizes specialty equipment to properly dry the hardwood floors. As the wood steadily dries, the planks settle into their pre-swelling condition and lay back down ‘as if it never even happened.' At SERVPRO of West Covina we are well stocked with all the right equipment, and the many years of knowledge and experience that makes us well prepared for any sort of property damage you may encounter.
