Repairing Floorboards After Flood Damage In Jacksonville
Burst water pipes can be a cause of excessive quantities of water in the home. Metal pipes expand and contract in response to temperature changes which can cause splitting, weakening or bursting. A pipe can put out more than 160 gallons of water per hour. If a family is away from the property, that could result in thousands of gallons of water spread throughout the home.
Our service is designed to help homeowners with any kind of flood damage in Jacksonville. Using our training, we can assess, restore and replace your property making the damage, “Like it never even happened.” Often, damages can affect both structural components, like flooring, as well as non-structural components like your possessions, furniture or valuables.
Properties with hardwood flooring are at the most risk of suffering permanent damage from exposure to moisture. Excess moisture is absorbed by wooden flooring causing warping and buckling. Application of proper drying techniques with hot air circulation as well as dehumidification can help to save flooring if we can reach it in time. Where there is 'cupping' of wood, SERVPRO can restore it using sand-blasters to even it out before refinishing the surface.
Homeowners with laminated flooring often need full-scale replacements. Laminate materials act as vapor barriers causing water to become trapped underneath. In some cases, if there is only staining on the surface of the floor, your SERVPRO technician can sand and refinish the floor. However, typically these are non-salvageable materials.
At SERVPRO we apply the same careful attention to your flooring as other areas of your home. Our remit is to work with a restore rather than replace mentality so, where possible we bring in advanced equipment to help get the job done. When materials are non-salvageable, we can bring in quality replacements or refer you to trustworthy third-parties. All materials are taken with us for proper disposal in line with federal and state law.
