It’s generally thought that when hardwood floors are involved in a water damage loss, that the only option is to replace them. That is not always true, but they will require special consideration.

We can implement a plan using our “Injectidry” system to dry your hardwood floors. The Injectidry system combined with our desiccant dehumidifiers will pull the moisture right out of the wood. Using our Injectidry system, we will place air-tight panels directly on the floor with special tubing attached to our Injectidry system to form suction beneath the panels, then very dry air then travels through the grooves between the boards bringing any moisture along with it.

 Time is critical when dealing with water damaged hardwood floors. The longer they are wet, the greater chance that buckling will occur. Buckling happens when the nails begin to pull through the floor. It is critical to address the problem before buckling occurs to save the floors.

It is important to note the difference between cupping and crowning on your hardwood floors when they have experienced excessive water damage.

Cupping will occur when the top of the wood floor dries faster than the bottom of the wood or when the moisture is absorbed by the underside and causes it to expand. If the floor is sanded before the wood has dried it leaves the wood thinner on the edges than in the center. Then when the floor does dry, the edges shrink and flatten. Since the top of the edges have been sanded, the center of each strip becomes higher than the edges, causing a crowned floor. It’s the biggest and most common mistake, sanding your floors before all of the moisture is removed.
