Hardwood Floor Drying

When dealing with water damage, performing the cleanup as soon as possible is always ideal. Particularly so, when it comes to real hardwood floor drying in either your residential or commercial location. Engineered hardwood or other flooring types do not call for such specific remediation needs. However, since hardwood is delicate and porous, if a leak, overflow or other water issue soaks into your wood floors, it becomes a race against time before permanent damage occurs.

Hardwood Floor Drying Method

You may not initially see any warping on a water-loss affected wood floor. In fact, hardwood flooring is so intricately cut and installed, there are several nooks where water can effectively ‘sit’ and cause movement from underneath. Eventually, this movement will show on the surface as warping or cupping.

How Water Affects Hardwood Floors

When water sits on hardwood floors for extended periods of time, it can get absorbed into the the pores of the wood. The edges of the flooring will start to expand or swell, which can cause warping of the wood and an uneven surface. If left to dry naturally, this can cause permanent damage to the wood flooring resulting in the need to replace it. However, if you can have a professional dry the wood quickly enough, the floors can usually be saved with no noticeable damage.

Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair’s Hardwood Floor Drying Process

To combat the damaging effects of water on the hardwood, we utilize a specialty professional drying system meant only for use on hardwood floors. How cool is that!

Our system pulls moisture through fluted panels on drying mats to pull the water out of the wet material by using negative air pressure. Then, corrective action is taken to gently and steadily lower the humidity of the wood back to normal levels. When done immediately after moisture exposure, this process leaves your floors looking like nothing ever happened. Best of all? The flooring remains in-place as we work to dry it out, allowing you to get back to life that much faster.
