When floodwater rolls into a Marysville property, quick cleanup is crucial. Once the water enters the home, it migrates rapidly. Although it may recede just as quickly, the residual moisture levels can cause a large amount of loss unless it gets addressed with the proper measures to remove the moisture and dry the structure.

Can Hardwood Flooring Get Restored After Flood Damage?

The materials used to construct the hardwood flooring in your Marysville home, determine its restoration potential after flood damage also these factors:
    •    Length of water exposure
    •    If the flooring is hardwood or composite  
    •    Evidence of mold infestation

If the water gets extracted soon after the initial exposure, the possibility exists that solid hardwood floorboards may have restoration potential. The techs may need to pull up the boards and dry them in another area if the detection equipment shows seepage into the subfloor or between floors.

Whenever possible, the techs try to dry hardwood flooring in place. This part of the restoration gets accomplished through the use of:
    •    Air movers  
    •    Dehumidifiers
    •    Drying mats

The drying process gets monitored closely to ensure that the present drying goals get attained in the set time frame. If the techs notice the room is not drying quickly enough to stay on track, they adjust the number of drying equipment pieces deployed accordingly to keep the drying phase within the time perimeters previously set.

After water damage occurs in a home, the techs pay special attention to the early signs of mold spore germination and colony development. After the drying phase, SERVPRO techs wipe down all affected surfaces with professional-grade cleaning agents that hinder the growth of mold with antimicrobial properties.
