What Procedures Do Professional Water Restorers Follow with Wet Hardwood?
Genuine hardwood flooring is more resilient than you might think. Its natural resistance to moisture makes it a great type of flooring to be able to be salvaged.
Our North Kenner, Harahan, & Lakeview SERVPRO crews will:
- Assess for hazards
- Adjust the conditions to proceed safely
- Remove standing water with pumps and extractors, assisted by squeegees.
- Use negative pressure moisture suction methods such as floor mats to pull water from several layers.
- Consider removing some strips or planks to gain access for water removal and drying.
- Use moisture detectors and meters (both in the damaged area and in an affected space) to determine the damage’s extent and help set drying goals.
- Devise and implement a drying plan
