When Water Has Damaged Your Floors In Spokane, We Are The Team To Call!
Water Can Destroy Your Floors In Spokane
Water naturally flows to the lowest points in your Spokane home after a plumbing break, appliance mishap, or another water incursion. The floors in the path of the water can take a real beating, requiring the assistance of professional water mitigation specialists to recover both function and appearance. Our crews of IICRC-trained technicians and the investment we have made in state-of-the-art water removal and drying equipment can help.
Depending on the kind of floors in your home, water cleanup in Spokane can vary. When flooding occurs over a relatively durable floor like vinyl, ceramic tile or concrete the long-term result can be minimal or no permanent damage. Even these hard-working floors need complete water removal and basic drying strategies for the best results. Evaluation of any underlying floor layers is crucial as moisture retained by a subfloor can resaturate the top layer, repeatedly putting that visible flooring at risk of permanent damage.
Hardwood floors are popular, beautiful, and somewhat durable if spills and minor flooding are mitigated quickly. SERVPRO invests in specialized drying equipment that offers superior outcomes with water cleanup of hardwood floors. The Injectidry System uses a series of panels laid flat to pull moisture out of a wet floor. Each panel connects via hoses with the primary negative pressure source, creating a powerful suction that moves water from the subfloor through joints, drying all layers with that action.
Tile floors sometimes suffer from the effects of cracked or worn grout lines. The Injectidry System can help with that scenario as well, suctioning the moisture up through the porous grout. Whatever type of flooring is involved, the SERVPRO technicians use the technology carefully, monitoring the moisture levels of the flooring materials at all levels. This consistent monitoring ensures that drying goals are met evenly across the expanse of flooring needing water cleanup.
Some contemporary flooring options do not fare as well during water cleanup. Laminates often must be considered for removal and replacement, their synthetic materials peeling, splitting and delaminating. SERVPRO technicians can help you make the best decision in these cases. Most importantly, even though you might discard the laminate, the subfloor needs water removal and drying before an alternative flooring is applied.
