Restoring a Hardwood Floor

Here’s an outline of a typical Tacoma hardwood floor drying call:

1. When we first arrive we will complete a comprehensive inspection of the water damage.  We will also check out the subfloor and the flooring materials such as the nails.  Sometimes wood floors are not able to be restored and will need to be spot replaced. The greater amount of water damage the has already occurred the less likely the flooring can be fully salvaged. Floors that have some damage but have not completely buckled may be able to be restored- every flooring situation is different, we take the time to fully inspect the problem.

2. After the flooring have been surveyed any visible moisture will need to be removed. The water that has accumulated on top of the floors or pooled underneath the floors will need to be dried.  Wetness that sits by floors will continued to be soaked up by the flooring and be an ideal environment for the growth of mold.

3. The next step is to set up our professional, quick drying vacuum panels. This will greatly  increase the airflow that surrounds the flooring helping it to dry as swiftly as possible.

Additional Information on Moisture and Wood Floors

Moisture on the wood flooring over time will cause problems no matter the type of wood. Some flooring though can withstand some amounts of moisture and be able to be restored.  Solid wood flooring damages very easy but can be sanded and refinished which will bring back the original beauty.  Harder wood floors will soak in the moisture slower than other wood or partial wood flooring- which makes harder flooring easier to salvage.  Engineered wood can also take a while to soak in water but once it is damaged they can not be refinished.

When working with excess moisture and wood it is important to work with experienced professionals that can go to work right away in saving your floors.  Advanced Water Restoration provides Tacoma with swift, knowledgeable, cost-effective services that will give you piece of mind.  Contact us today!
