Water Damage Q & A: Can My Hardwoods Be Saved?
For many residents in the Newton area, water damage isn’t a common occurrence. Many of our first-time customers are often unsure of what to expect and have many questions. Hardwood floors, for example, are highly susceptible to water damage, so customers are often concerned with our ability to save them.
Can Your Hardwood Floor be Saved?
It is possible to save water-damaged hardwood floors, but it depends on the extent of the damage and how quickly you respond.
If the floor has only mild exposure, it may have cupping, which is possible to reverse. On the other hand, if the floor has been exposed to enough water for an extended amount of time, the planks may warp and will likely need to be replaced.
At SERVPRO of Catawba County East, we have a system for drying water-damaged hardwood floors. We will do anything in our power to save your floor, but in some cases, it might just be too late.
