SERVPRO Can Return Hardwood Floors in Your Bawcomville Home to Their Natural Beauty with Immediate Mitigation  

Kitchen flooding in Bawcomville is a common occurrence, whether from a dishwasher overflowing or a pipe bursting. If you have hardwood floors, it can ruin your floors if not dealt with immediately.  

Will I need to replace my hardwood flooring? 

Hardwood floors bring beauty and warmth to a home. They are also very durable and easy to care for, but they do not like moisture. Flooding in your kitchen causes your wood floors to absorb moisture like a sponge. Getting help within the first twenty-four hours is vital for repairing water damage to floors in your Bawcomville residence. If left untreated, you end up dealing with: 

  • Cupping – moisture causes wood to depress in the center
  • Crowning – moisture pushes wood upward in the center
  • Buckling – A result of the above. Lifts the floorboards from the subflooring
  • Mold 

Restoration Instead of Replacement 

Genuine hardwood floors, meaning a single layer of wood, can be repaired and restored if handled professionally and quickly. Wood is susceptible to water damage and also pulls moisture from the air. Even when the wooden floorboards look dry, moisture hides underneath or gets trapped in the wood. Our team will mitigate the water damage by: 

  • Moisture meters – determining where and how much moisture 
  • Centrifugal air movers – pulls air from above and below the flooring
  • Dehumidifiers – desiccant silica gel may be used 
  • Sanding and refinishing 

Your lovely hardwood flooring isn’t subject to costly replacement with water mitigation action by our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) trained technicians. Having professionals clean and restore your home from water damage saves you time and money, and makes your insurance company happy. 

For service that will leave your home, “Like it never even happened.” contact SERVPRO of Monroe / West Monroe at (318) 345-5121. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
