Can Flood Damage to Wood Flooring Get Restored in Gaithersburg
SERVPRO Has the Expertise to Clean and Dry Storm Damage in Gaithersburg Properties
Not all storm damage in a Gaithersburg property occurs due to a flash flood or poor drainage backing up water into a home. Sometimes it is the simple act of forgetting to shut a window when torrential rains roll through the area.
Bringing in professional flood damage restoration to a Gaithersburg property with wet hardwood floors can help save the boards and negate the need for replacement. SERVPRO technicians can use their equipment to remove the water from hardwood floors before the boards begin to warp from the excessive moisture exposure.
- In cases where boards warp, the techs can remove them and use their heated drying equipment to restore the standard moisture content to the wood
- Techs use specialized drying equipment to dry boards in place when possible
- Dried boards that still show slight warping can easily get sanded and refinished, saving the homeowner the cost of replacement
No Water Left Behind
The technicians have multiple types of equipment to determine if there is water migration under the floorboards. This ensures that no moisture gets left behind to cause damage to the flooring or contribute to mold growth which creates an even large issue that may permanently damage the flooring. The attention to detail during the scoping phase of the water damage restoration assists homeowners in avoiding these issues.
The technicians carefully monitor the drying phase, check the air humidity levels, and use probes on the floorboards to ensure the moisture content percentage is reduced to a normal level.
