Water Damage Mitigation in Nashua - So Simple Even Your Kids Can Do It
Regulating Moisture Removal from Hardwood in Nashua Homes
While you might believe that drying materials and your home as fast as is possible might be the only objective of professional restoration, other considerations must get made in your Nashua home. Some materials do not fare well under rapid drying conditions and can become more damaged by our efficient approach than if the process was more gradual. Hardwood can also suffer the effects of becoming too dry, so our drying efforts must get closely monitored to ensure that we are not passing this threshold.
Were you aware that different woods have different porosity ratings – so water damage in Nashua homes can affect each of these materials differently? Part of being a reputable restoration company is educating our SERVPRO Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) on these variances and how to confidently address these situations without threatening the integrity or the appearance of the flooring. Our training through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in avenues like Applied Structural Drying (ASD) can help to showcase the devices necessary to perform calculated drying efforts for hardwood surfaces.
Drying mats should get placed perpendicular to the seams of hardwood flooring to allow them to address as many planks simultaneously as possible. These tools are vital for a continual and gradual draw of moisture from the wood.
Constructed of poly-sheeting kept with our inventory of water restoration equipment on our SERVPRO production trucks, tents regulate the specific work area of drying mats and other equipment like our positive pressure systems, air movers, and dehumidifiers.
Moisture content meters provide the most crucial information of all when drawing moisture from hardwood flooring. Our technicians can look to these devices to determine the current saturations of wood planks to keep them within the parameters where they look and function the best.
Hardwood is a staple of construction through every era, so it is a flooring that our SERVPRO of Nashua team has trained to restore when water damage incidents strike. Give our professionals a call anytime that you need us at (603) 889-2311.
