Water Removal from Your Wood Flooring in Amherst
Team SERVPRO Removes Water From Your Property Quickly and Efficiently for Best Results
When you have had flooding of any kind, particularly over wooden flooring, in your Amherst home, it is essential that you get the water extracted right away. The longer it remains, the more damage is done to your floor. Wood contains moisture naturally, but it expands when it absorbs excess moisture, and the boards can start to warp. Eventually, buckling can take place, and if the moisture remains long enough, you must replace your floor.
When needed, water removal in your Amherst home needs to be done right away. The best thing to do is to trust the professionals at SERVPRO to help you, rather than trying to do it yourself. Our staff has the tools and knowledge to efficiently take care of the problem quickly and save your wood floors.
We waste no time after arriving at your home in extracting the water. If there is any carpeting over it, it must be removed first, along with the padding. Finished wood flooring sometimes returns to its usual shape once drying is done and can be restored. Your floors should not be sanded until they are totally dry since drying continues and could cause the floor to expand or contract further.
SERVPRO techs may need to put dehumidifiers or air movers in the area to ensure that the floor is dried completely. Then, the floor can be refinished and/or sanded. We use a nonpenetrating moisture meter to find any wet areas, and Teflon coated probes of a penetrating moisture meter to figure out how much moisture content is in the layers at the wettest point. We explain all our procedures first, so you know what we are doing and why.
Our machines for drying are checked on daily to make sure they are drying the floor properly. We may need to reposition them to get the most efficient drying time.
