Water Damage and Wood Floors

Something as simple as a gallon of water spilled on hardwood floors can ruin the flooring, start mold growth, and cause the wood to buckle.   Whether it be a slow leak from a sink, an overflowed toilet from above, or a broken refrigerator line, water causes warping and can trigger mold and mildew growth that can ruin wood. Major flooding can cause wall and foundation problems that must be addressed, but the first step in mitigating the damage done by water to a building -- including its wood floors -- is to gently but quickly ventilate and dry materials.

SERVPRO® of West Austin / Lakeway uses commercial-grade machines that extract the water from the wood flooring with a powerful force.  If we are called immediately following a water damage event, there is a good possibility we can save your wood floors from buckling using the high-powered water extractors.  More about Water Damage Restoration
