hardwood floor warped due to water damage

The Warped Tour

Here at SERVPRO we try and adapt the restore vs. replace mentality. In some instances, the water has been soaking for too long. In hardwood floors this can cause warping, because of this, this flooring will have to be replaced. The sooner you can get someone restoring your home or business after a loss, the better chance you have of saving your property and belongings. SERVPRO of Southwest Wichita is a 24/7 business, give us a call when disaster strikes (316) 260-9011.

The Heat Wagon

The SERVPRO heat wagon helps decrease the drying time on large water jobs. The heater increases the temperature of outside air by up to 160 degrees Fahrenheit and then deposits it into the space.  With the combination of good temperature control and dehumidification, the heat wagon can drastically decrease the drying time for structures, especially ones which are not completely protected from the outside weather and moisture conditions.

Like A Sponge

When your home or business suffers a water loss, even if the standing water is only an inch or two the drywall will continue to soak it up like a sponge. If it doesn’t completely dry, that can cause mold growth in the future. Any water loss SERVPRO handles, we make sure that the affected area is completely dry and if it is beyond restoring, we will remove the drywall for replacement.

Floor Removal

Our employees are truly how we make things “Like it never even happened.”  During the drying process we want it to be as quick as possible so you can get back to your normal. Some flooring requires removal if it has soaked up too much moisture, as it can cause warping, mold growth, and even deterioration.

Hardwood Floors and The Drying Process

When hardwood floors are affected, it can be hard to see how saturated the wood is, one trick we use is removing the vents in the floor to get a better look. We can usually dry hard wood floors with our Air Movers but if the drying process takes longer, we use our Injectidry Floor Matt Drying System to speed up the process. This drying system creates a vacuum of suction to get water out of dense wood floors.

Water Absorption

This home had about 6 inches of standing water, but the water got absorbed by the porous materials and the affected area extended about a foot up the door and over two foot up the dry wall. Even when you might only have a few inches of standing water, dry wall, doors, and furniture will all absorb the water, and it can make the affected area much more then what was physically touching the water.

Warped Wood

Wet conditions in this commercial building caused warping to happen in the base of the cabinets. Wood warps when the moisture content in the wood changes unevenly. As it starts to dry, one part of the board dries faster than the other, causing the drier area to shrink faster. That causes stress on the wood and can cause it to warp or bend. The faster you find a leak the better chance we can have to dry it and prevent warping wood.

The Moisture Meter

This building was affected by a broken pipe under the sink. This broken pipe caused not only wet and warped cabinets but also the beginning stages of mold growth. Checking your pipes regularly is recommended, especially during the winter months. The tool we are using in the picture is a Protimeter or moisture meter, this meter detects and displays the moisture content of the material it is being used to test.

Repairing Our Dehumidifiers

Here at SERVPRO we have men of many talents. Not only do we handle water, fire, and mold remediation, we also can repair and update our equipment ourselves. The dehumidifier creates and adds heat to help with the dry down. Typically, the dehumidifier pumps out around 100-degree air at 12-20% humidity which is very helpful to drying when your typical water damage is at around 60-80% on day 1. We replaced the pumps on 3 dehumidifiers.

SERVPRO of Southwest Wichita also offers carpet cleaning. Most carpet’s will show soiling over time and with SERVPRO’s range of specialized cleaning techniques we can often help extend the life of your carpet and help protect your investment. Carpets act as a filter and traps many things including, dust, animal hair, dirt, and gases.

Our Dehumidifiers in Action

Sometimes with large commercial jobs we bring in large buckets to drain the dehumidifier hose. Water damage doesn’t always happen close to drains so we have to be ready for whatever happens. Dehumidifiers can suck up to 125 PPD out of the air a day and that water needs to go somewhere so the dehumidifier pumps its reservoir tank.
