Jacksonville's Water Damage Technicians Talk About Drying Hardwood Floors

If a water leak ever occurs at your Jacksonville residence, some of your building materials can get wet and be difficult to dry. The goal to any water damage project is to return moisture levels to preloss conditions as quickly as possible. Some items in your home are simpler to dry than others. Porous materials such as carpet get wet quicker, but they are easier to dry out than non-porous materials like wood or concrete. If things like your wood floors receive water damage, it could take more than just air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out the materials.  

Our SERVPRO technicians always use the industry's most advanced technology when mitigating any loss at your property. We also know that fast 24/7 service is essential to reducing the severity of problems during any water damage situation in Jacksonville. Located locally, we answer our phones at all times so that we can respond promptly. Our team is highly trained, and we have experience in dealing with many types of different scenarios. When we arrive at your home, we first make sure the building is safe for all occupants, then we use specialized instruments to take humidity, temperature, and moisture level readings.  

If we think that your hardwood floors may be affected, we use our wood moisture sensors to determine the moisture level of the materials. Quickly drying out hardwood floors from water damage can prevent the wood from cupping and warping. If the flooring has a high moisture content, then we may use specialized equipment to help speed up the drying process to prevent buckling and fungal growth. To do this, we often use drying mats to push air deep into the wood flooring materials. The mats help concentrate and spread out the air so that it focuses evenly into the wet wood.  

The use of drying mats is just one example of the technologically advanced tools of the trade our SERVPRO crew can bring to the table. If your hardwood floors ever get wet, call SERVPRO of Arlington at (904) 721-2230 any day of the week.
