What Happens To Hardwood Floors With Water Damage?

Hardwood Floor Drying

Did you know that SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian can dry water from wood floors? There is a science behind this and our SERVPRO technicians have been training to restore water-damaged wood floors.

A wet property or building can sometimes dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. At SERVPRO, we try to help speed up the drying process with technology and proven drying methodologies. When materials (including wood flooring) are wet, moisture will naturally move to the drier air surface, but only if the air is drying.

This is why SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian uses de-humidifiers and air movers to keep the air at the surface of the hardwood flooring dry…to pull the moisture away from the sub-flooring as well as the wood. Our team uses a piece of equipment, Injecti-Dry, to ensure the hardwood is completely dry.

It’s not only the equipment but the technology too! SERVPRO has developed DryBook™, a proprietary tool that provides real-time documentation and updates on the drying process and helps ensure industry drying requirements are met. With DryBook™ Mobile, you have the ability to know exactly where your property is in the drying process.

Bottom line…if your hardwood floor has water damage, we can dry them.
