Water damage to this Concord home’s hardwood flooring soaked and caused cupping to the planks of the wood floor. Cupping is the result of moisture absorption in the tongue and groove joints causing them to expand and lift upwards. SERVPRO has industry certified technicians with a great deal of experience with the restoration of wood flooring suffering from water damage. First, we would suction the water from the hardwood flooring slowly using a controlled moisture reduction process that often flattens out the planks. We would place commercial air movers and dehumidifiers in strategic spots to facilitate the air circulation and regulate the drying time. Our clients and their insurance companies are extremely happy when we can save their beautiful hardwood flooring rather than having it replaced.
