Water damage to wood floors can cause cupping, crowning, warping and buckling to the wood planks. The first step is to determine if the wood floor is salvageable. There are many types of wood flooring materials. Generally, the higher the density of the material, the slower it absorbs water, however the denser the material the slower it will release the moisture. Likewise, the better the finish on the floor the less water it will have absorbed from a spill on top of it, however the longer it will take to dry. Insight’s trained experienced technicians will inspect and determine the best process to remove the elevated moisture in the flooring.
Drying Wet Wood Floors:
It is critical to remove moisture from wet floors in a timely manner. The faster specialty drying equipment is installed onto your wood floors, the better your odds are to save the floor. Insight Restoration will setup a custom drying plan based on your needs such as, setting up specialty vacuum panels to desiccant dehumidifiers, tenting of floors or stipple rolling the finish. Whether you have a small area of wood floor or an entire gym floor we have the knowledge and equipment to properly dry your floor. The floors moisture content will be monitored until the floor is dry. Specialty drying systems make it possible to successfully dry wood floors although it is common to have to refinish the floor once dry. The final result is a floor that is in as good or better condition than it was before the loss.
