SERVPRO can often save your hardwood floors!
A common worry our customers have when dealing with water damage is saving their hardwood floors. Thankfully, SERVPRO can often save hardwood floors! Hardwood is a porous building material, and can retain a significant amount of water, which in turn causes the floors to warp, swell, or break down. After SERVPRO removes the water, they will begin the drying process to save your floors! The first step is to manipulate the temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. Our professional crews use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water retained by the wood, and other hard-to-access moisture. They’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the wood returns to acceptable drying goals! If you are concerned about water damage on your hardwood floors, make sure to call us right away! The longer you wait to get your floors dried, the more damage there will be. SERVPRO of North East Grand Rapids is available 24/7 to meet all your emergency needs---all you need to do is call! (616)-647-4300.
