Water Damage In Agoura Hills
Drying Hardwood Floors In Agoura Hills
When water spreads from a kitchen or laundry room onto hardwood floors, there is a significant risk to the hardwood. The wood can absorb moisture and begin to swell, causing it to cup or crown. Some floors may crack along the veins of the wood, depending on the time it is exposed to moisture. Fast response and removal of the moisture can save the floor.
SERVPRO provides water damage services and mitigation in Agoura Hills and surrounding areas. We are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. We aim to be on-site in less than four hours, which is very important to minimize the damage and maximize the recovery of flooring materials such as hardwood floors.
Why is A Fast Response Important to Minimize Damage?
Water spreading over tiled floors usually does not find its way to the subfloor unless there are cracks in the grout between the tiles. Hardwood floors have small spaces between every plank, and water quickly finds its way through the spaces to the subfloor. Unless the water is removed, the subfloor may begin to absorb moisture and begin to swell. Hardwood planks are sealed on the outer surface. The underside of the wood and the sides are not sealed and absorb moisture.
SERVPRO has found that the use of drying mats on hardwood floors is an efficient approach to removing moisture and water from these types of floor materials. Our fast response to your home and application of this solution can avoid cupping and crowning of hardwood floors. Hours do matter to avoid permanent damage. This approach minimizes the impact on the client and reduces the cost to the insurance company significantly.
Clients appreciate that the floor does not need to be replaced. Their home is inconvenienced for a few days while the floors are dried. Compared to ripping out the damaged hardwood and replacing it along with the associated mess over several weeks, many of our clients are ecstatic over this solution.
