Floodwater and Your Hardwood Flooring
Flood Damage is no match for SERVPRO – Let us restore your Pearl River interior!
The hardwood flooring throughout your Pearl River home adds a unique and luxurious touch. When your interior sees flooding after a storm, SERVPRO is available to assist with extraction, drying, and total restoration.
Flood damage to your Pearl River home puts your hardwood flooring at risk. Wood floors absorb moisture from the surrounding air and water from the surface. If you have floodwater intrusion during a storm front, you may start to notice some of the following issues:
- Buckling – the planks begin to lift away from the subflooring below
- Cupping – moisture leads to a downward curve in the planks
- Crowning – the planks may start to bend upward when they take on moisture
Until we arrive, put on protective gloves and put old towels or blankets down to soak up some of the water and keep it from migrating. Due to the potential for contamination within the floodwater itself, it is best not to try to mop it up or move it around too much. After the team arrives, we will treat the water with anti-microbials and begin mitigating the issue, including rapid extraction and simultaneous drying efforts.
