Hardwood Floors Are Not Indestructible

SERVPRO Technicians Hardwood Floors Do Not Like Water. Get Your Water Damaged Floors Cleaned Up Properly.

How Water Warps Hardwood Flooring  

When water floods areas with hardwood floors, the material tries to absorb the water.  Excessive moisture forces the wood to expand, which can cause warping or cupping.  Here at SERVPRO of North Oakland County, we always encourage water damage victims to extract as much water as possible while they wait for help to arrive.  

Saving Water Wet Hardwood Floors  

In some cases, we can save your hardwood floors.  If the water is quickly extracted and there is not significant warping, then we can use a drying process specifically designed for hardwood floors.  Yet, if the flooring was exposed to moisture for a significant period and shows major signs of warping, then your hardwood will need to be removed and replaced.  

Call Professionals Before It is Too Late  

While it is possible to save your water-damaged hardwood flooring in your Birmingham, MI home, time is a critical factor.  If you notice water damage in your home, call a professional cleanup and restoration company like our team here at SERVPRO of North Oakland County.  We offer 24/7 emergency restoration services. Call us today at 248-439-1160.
