When Does Water-Damaged Flooring Need Replaced in My Cocoa Home?

8/14/2020 (Permalink)

Flooding can quickly damage the flooring in your home. Contact SERVPRO for water removal and remediation efforts.

The saturation and deterioration of flooring materials can happen quickly in a water disaster, often leading to a need for removal and replacement. 

After water damage affects your Cocoa home, certain materials are more impacted than others. Flooring is normally one of the most heavily damaged areas of a property, precisely because this is where water pools and begins to saturate into these exposed elements. Carpeting and wood plank flooring are the most susceptible and sensitive to this absorption and subsequent damage. Identifying how severely impacted these materials have become can show our restorers what actions must get taken to return the property to preloss condition. 

Regarding water damage repair for Cocoa homes and condos, we have in-house contractors and experienced technicians to respond to both sides of the restoration and recovery necessary after disasters. When flooring becomes compromised by saturation and overexposure, our contractors can remove the portions of this surface layer that require discarding to dry the subflooring underneath more efficiently. After thorough drying of the property, these same contractors can reinstall removed flooring material to make it “Like it never even happened.” 

Is It Possible to Preserve Damaged Surface Materials? 

There is a possibility of protecting and preserving damaged flooring materials before the need for controlled demolition arises. There is a finite window where restoration is possible with extraction tools and drying equipment. This is especially true for carpeted floors that have not yet absorbed enough standing water on the surface to impact the subflooring under the padding. Extraction and drying tools to help in this effort include: 

  • Carpet Wands 
  • Weighted Extraction Devices 
  • Floor Drying Mats 

Water damage can have immediate effects on your home’s flooring materials from the onset of the disaster. Our SERVPRO of Central Brevard technicians and contractors can work together to return your property to its original condition. Give us a call today at (321) 638-4947.
