water on wood floor SERVPRO knows how your hardwood flooring can be damaged from water. We come prepared with the equipment your home needs after a water incident occurs.

Prompt Water Mitigation in Syracuse Homes Prevents Further Devastation

A water intrusion incident can strike your home at any time. For instance, a dishwasher can leak suddenly or spill water on your hardwood flooring because of insufficient maintenance. Beginning the water mitigation process shortly after the water loss incident is vital. Water mitigation involves the assessment, containment, and prevention of further destruction to a home and its contents.

SERVPRO can help you perform water mitigation in your Syracuse home by extracting water using specialized techniques and equipment. Some of the other actions that our team can take during the process include:

  • Removing ruined materials, including flooring and drywall.
  • Cleaning and applying disinfectants on salvageable materials.
  • Using air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the home. 
  • Ensuring the structural stability of the house. 

Water damage mitigation is not designed to replace or repair the destroyed property but to ensure that the incident does not lead to further consequences. Part of SERVPRO’s overall assessment includes determining how clean the water is and its threat to the property’s occupants. We begin water damage restoration following the water mitigation process to return the home to its preloss state. 

If your hardwood flooring is affected, we can dry it as soon as possible. Wood materials that remain damp for long periods can sustain permanent damage. Our drying strategy for hardwood flooring concentrates on preventing cupping, warping, or buckling from becoming permanent. If the cup or warp is not serious, our SERVPRO team can take it out through sanding as part of the water damage restoration process. It is not advisable to sand hardwood floors before they are ready for sanding and refinishing. 

Typically, we only refinish hardwood flooring when the moisture content level stabilizes to an equilibrium moisture content below 12 percent. SERVPRO has equipment that can force airflow underneath hardwood flooring to dry it from below. 

Water mitigation services are essential for preventing further destruction. Call SERVPRO of East Onondaga County at (315) 446-8776 for efficient restoration services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
