The Secret to Saving Hardwood Floors after Water Damage

1/2/2022 (Permalink)

green machines with hoses on light brown wood floor This house in Mt. Airy had hundreds of gallons of water run over them from an overhead pipe break. Using drying mats, we were able to save them.

In the last month, our business saved four homes' hardwood floors. 

For years, many water damage company's initial approach to emergency response was to demo everything affected and place drying fans to get the structure ready for reconstruction.

Today, we have many more options to dry the contents of a home. Your water damage professional should be well versed in the IICRC's Standard for Water Restoration to know the proper method's of restorative drying.

After accessing your homes damage, our technicians will extract all standing water from the floors and while we continue with any necessary demo, place the Injectidry Floor Mat Drying System on the hardwoods. These mats create a strong suction on the floor and most times save hardwoods from having to be torn out!

At SERVPRO of Mt. Airy, Pilot Mountain, we use creative drying methods to restore floors and structures before going straight to tear out. This is the job of a water damage professional. 

In this situation the homeowner said, "We had to call them for a water leak, and they were at our house in no time. Because of their quick response and excellent knowledge, they were able to save our solid hardwood floors from damage and our carpet. Once they finished cleaning up and drying out the house we only had to paint a few walls. I would call these guys anytime!!"
