Can Hardwood Floors Be Saved After Kitchen Flooding?
SERVPRO Provides Water Damage Restoration in Nashua That Can Restore Hardwood Floors
Kitchen flooding is something that often happens in homes. A burst pipe, overflowing dishwasher, or water line to the refrigerator could be the cause. If the kitchen has hardwood floors, they can be permanently damaged if immediate mitigation does not occur.
Is Replacing the Floor the Only Option After Water Damage?
Hardwood floors are lovely. They are easy to care for and durable. One thing they do not like is moisture. When there is a water intrusion in the kitchen, the hardwood floors soak it up rapidly. It is vital to get professional help within the first twenty-four hours if you want to save your flooring. If you do not get water damage restoration help in Nashua, you could end up with:
- Crowning – the water pushes the wood upward
- Cupping – the moisture depresses the wood
- Buckling – lifts the floorboards off the subflooring
- Mold – can happen in less than 24 hours
Restoring Instead of Replacing
Genuine hardwood floors can be restored if dealt with quickly and professionally. Wood not only absorbs water but pulls moisture from the air.
