Is Water Removal Sufficient to Save Hardwood Floors in Ford City Properties?
SERVPRO Takes Extra Steps during Water Removal from Ford City Homes for Satisfactory Outcomes
Wood flooring is semi-porous and thus vulnerable to water exposure. The water also penetrates beneath the floorboards through the joints. Although timely water removal helps limit damage on hardwood floors, it might not be sufficient if focused on the surface.
When called to handle water removal in a Ford City home with hardwood flooring, SERVPRO teams have resources to handle extraction from the floor surfaces and beneath the panels. The resources prove helpful, especially when dealing with severe water issues, including:
- Leaking roof from storms
- Cleaning up after a sewer backup
- Burst pipes
Extracting pooling water from the surface requires equipment with a sufficient vacuum lift. We have a wide range of extractors, including truck-mounted extractors. Once surface water is addressed, other resources are essential. Flat lay tenting materials help concentrate air circulation close to the wooden floors expediting the drying process. Our SERVPRO technicians use plastic sheets and duct tape to create the tenting, focusing dry air currents over the floor surface.
