Monitoring Water Removal from Mountain Home Hardwood Floors
Let SERVPRO help you get your hardwood floors back to normal.
As much as many Mountain Home residents might assume that drying after a water loss incident needs to be excessive and absolute, this is rarely the case. In most situations, affected materials and areas of your property must get evaluated by our professionals to determine the extent of damage they face and what actions specifically restore them entirely. With this information, we can begin vital mitigation services to protect saturated structural elements like hardwood flooring common to properties in the region.
Restoring water damage in your Mountain Home to the hardwood installed in your residence is an intricate process that requires not only the specialized equipment of our team but also the experience of our professionals as well. We have a full roster of Water Restoration Technicians and Applied Structural Drying Technicians accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) This training in this niche of the industry helps us to develop an effective plan to ensure that every damaged property receives the appropriate extraction and drying they require in a timely and efficient manner.
Flooring can often take the worst of water damage as it spreads throughout your home. Its positioning allows pooling water to collect on top, penetrating plank seams and joints, and also saturating into the individual flooring planks as well. Within days after a loss incident, even with surface water removed and presumably dried by a homeowner, this damage can persist out of sight and cause bloating and distortion of the floor that becomes impossible to restore without reconstruction.
However, we cannot leave our drying equipment in damaged areas of your house unattended for days on end, either. Hardwood requires a specific moisture content level to maintain its shape, function, and appearance. When our professionals utilize our Injecti-Dry system to begin removing moisture from the subflooring and wood planks, we must continually monitor the moisture levels to know when enough drying has taken place.
Water loss incidents can affect many areas of your home, but to protect your hardwood and to save yourself time and money, trust our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley water restoration technicians. We have the skills and equipment to make water loss damages “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (208) 788-0183.
