Wetumpka Wet Floors, Yikes!! Call SERVPRO for Water Removal and Drying
How Hardwood Floors Suffer from Water Damage in Wetumpka after an Appliance Overflows
Having beautiful hardwood floors in your Wetumpka home requires some care to ensure you can enjoy your home as long as possible. When an overflowing appliance or sink floods your floors, you need to get the mess cleaned up as soon as possible.
Hardwood floors in your Wetumpka home can become warped from water damage when moisture content becomes too elevated. Hardwood flooring expands and contracts whenever humidity or temperature fluctuations happen, so installers design these floors with small gaps between the boards to allow for this expected and normal expansion. Water soaking into the grooves can make these boards swell too quickly and begin to push on each other. This expansion can lead to permanent damage. SERVPRO teams always arrive Faster To Any Size Disaster and start working to get the problem mitigated successfully.
SERVPRO's water damage restoration specialists use state of the art machines to extract the water that lies in between these cracks. As the Injectidry mats draw up the water and deposit it in the tank from the increased suction, the mats covering the area heat the wood enough to force rapid evaporation to take place. This water vapor also becomes trapped in the Injectidry and can no longer damage your floors. As we perform this, we monitor the amount of moisture remaining in the wood. This continual measurement-taking prevents us from over-drying the wood, which can lead to the splintering of the wood.
When large areas of wood flooring sustain an inundation of water, we often remove some of the boards so we can access it more fully underneath. We need to get not only the boards dry but also the floor underneath, as well. Our IICRC-certified technicians understand how to remove, dry, and then replace these boards, leaving your home “Like it never even happened.”
