Flood & Water Damage
Water damage to hardwood floors can stem from a number of circumstances ranging from a rainstorm, to a leaky appliance, to an outright flood from a broken pipe. Whatever the reason for the damage if it isn’t addressed quickly it can turn into an even bigger problem. Because of the many different types of water damage that can occur to hardwood floors, each requires a different method of repair. The species of wood and severity of the water damage will also play a factor in determining what will need to be done to repair or restore your floors.
If your floors experience severe water damage or flood damage, it is likely that your flooring will need to be replaced. Wood is extremely susceptible to mold growth and if the flooring is not treated or replaced it can cause health problems to you, your family, and your pets.
Severe water exposure to your floors can cause more than surface damage, and there are signs to look for that will tell you if the damage is more than surface deep. If you notice that your floors are showing signs of cupping, popping, or cracking, this is a clear indication that the subfloor has also received damage and will also need to be repaired or replaced.
