How To Save A Water Damaged Wood Floor

Did you know that a lot of National Companies that provide water damage restoration don’t even try to salvage wood flooring? They dont provide water damage restoration for wood flooring. In certain cases such as sewage backup or grossly contaminated water you must as per IICRC code S500-the standard for water damage restoration.remove contaminated materials. But what about a domestic water leak, a tub overflow, a dishwasher leak-these are types of water losses where wood flooring should be saved. Most companies come in, see the cupping(the warp) and immediately deem it not salvageable and want to rip it out. Not with Systematic. We have systems designed specifically to remove the water from underneath the flooring(wood or tile) and in most cases can save the floor. It may have to be sanded and refinished but thats a lot cheaper than replacing a wood floor due to water damage. We use a system that uses mats positioned across the floor with suction tubes attached to remove water and pump warm dry air below the floor. See below the system I am talking about:

Of course laminate flooring cannot be saved but almost all other types of wood floor can be restored using this or similar systems. Dont rip up a perfectly good floor because the company you are dealing with does not have the equipment or expertise to save the floor from destruction. Wood is a very resilient material and can stand the test of time. It will even withstand flooding if handled quickly and professionally be a good water damage restoration contractor. Dont let your floor get ripped up and removed because the remediation company doesnt want to put the time and effort into saving what you have. Call around and make sure the company you hire is outfitted with the proper tools, the proper equipment and the proper training to provide a service that will save you lots of time and trouble once the water has been removed and the house is dry.

    Damage restoration services are necessary after any disaster to restore your home and your life.

    Damage Restoration Services are required after a natural or man-made disaster.

    Damage restoration services are required after a natural or man-made disaster. These services are designed to get your life back to normal as soon as possible and to mitigate ongoing damage to your property. It is important that your damage restoration services contractor be able to provide service quickly and efficiently within the confines of your insurance policy so that out-of-pocket losses are minimized. For example with water loss if the water is allowed to stand and items remain wet we have the added issue of mold developing which greatly increases the size and scope i.e. money required to restore the property.

    So fast response is of primary concern. Of course having the right equipment to provide the damage restoration services is paramount as well. Without the proper equipment the job will take longer than necessary and typically the most expensive part of a restoration project is the manpower required to bring the property back to previous condition.

    In addition the know-how and expertise of the company management, supervisory staff, and laborers is all very important as well. You want your home or business going together as it was or better than it was. Having poorly trained staff to make the matter a lot worse than it needs to be.
