Water Damage to Wood Floors

Water Damage to a bedroom in a home on Cape Cod

If your home or business experiences a water damage event that affects your hardwood flooring, it is essential to call SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and the Islands immediately.  It is possible for the hardwood floors to be saved if the water is extracted immediately and the area is completely dried. First, any standing water is pumped out of the home or business. Second, our industrial grade water extractors are installed onto the flooring to "suck out" any remaining water hiding inside the wood. You will be amazed how much water is actually extracted during this process.  When the water is not extracted in this manner, it's very common for the wood floors to buckle.  Third, industrial fans and dehumidifiers are installed into the damaged area to completely dry it out.  Lastly, anti-fungal treatments are applied to prevent mold from forming (known as secondary damage).  If your home or business suffers water damage to your wood flooring, please do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and the Islands.
