Hardwood Floors Ruined by Water? Think Again!

Water Damage Hardwood Floors Ruined by Water? Think Again! Water on hardwood floors.

Have you had a water damage and think your hardwood floors are ruined? That used to be the standard way of thinking. However, SERVPRO has specialty equipment that may be able to save those hardwood floors, called the mat system.               

This system looks a lot like it sounds, like a big mat. These mats are laid over wet hardwood floors and it creates a suction. Through a series of tubes, the water in and under the hardwood floor is sucked out. These special mats can salvage wet hardwood floors and make them #LikeItNeverEvenHappened.

Of course, like most things, there are a few factors that come into play with the mat system. These factors could be the sub-floor material, insurance approval, and so on. The biggest factor here is time. The system needs to be placed as soon as possible before the floor board begin to buckle.

If you have any questions about water damage give SERVPRO of Marshall County a call at 256-891-0177.
