Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Let SERVPRO Work on Saving your Hardwood Floors

One of the most beautiful features a house can have is hardwood floors. They give warmth while adding character, and they can pull the whole look of your home together. However, when a water pipe bursts and the hardwood soaks up the water, you need to act quickly to preserve the floors and prevent further damage.

SERVPRO of Rocky Hill is the team you need to restore your floors when there's water damage. Some homeowners explore do-it-yourself solutions and seek to extract water by using dehumidifiers and air movers, which, although helpful, fail to address your home's complete needs. Our certified water restoration technicians have at their fingertips equipment specific to our industry, such as the drying mats seen in the video.

Drying mats are ideal for removing water from the planks of your tongue and groove hardwood floors. The setup shown in the video includes the drying mats and their connection to a wet vacuum that creates negative pressure to encourage powerful suction. In this home, our team focuses not only on the floor but also on the beams and joists holding it up. The Drieaz mats give our SERVPRO team flexibility due to the different sizes available and their ability to fit in most spaces. As the video shows, the water flows out of the floors almost immediately after the system is connected. Our team monitors its progress by using moisture sensors throughout the home, including its crawlspace, and we adjust our efforts accordingly. Once moisture levels are back to normal, we may choose to spray the area with an antimicrobial solution for added safety.

Our team at SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville shows its expertise whenever you call us into your home. Reach us at (865) 862-8907 and let us leave your home, "Like it never even happened."
