1-800-water Damage: Can Hardwood Floors Be Saved?

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

When most people see their hardwood floors buckle from water damage they think their floors need to be replaced. Not true! With specialized drying equipment hardwood floors can be dried and saved, eliminating the time, inconvenience, and cost of replacing them while saving precious natural resources.

By using panels, taped down to the hardwood floors to provide a seal, the drying machine is operated on negative (suction) pressure pulling water through the flutes of the hardwood floors. Marble, tile and sub-floors can also be dried using this equipment and method.

The time it takes to dry hardwood floors varies on the amount of water the floor was exposed to, the length of time the floors have been saturated with water, the thickness and quality of finish on the surface, and the layers of material beneath the top layer. With a quick response time and drying action taken immediately, these floors can be dried to their pre-loss condition going from a buckled hardwood floor to a floor that is once again flat.
