Water Damage to Your Homewood Vinyl Floors? Call SERVPRO

7/5/2019 (Permalink)

Water can damage the subfloor and cause your vinyl flooring to peel. SERVPRO has the know how to remediate the damage.

Drying Vinyl Plank Flooring in Homewood Properties  

Vinyl flooring does not have a limited look that it used to for Homewood properties. These days, this material is a much cheaper and more easily installed option to compete with authentic hardwood flooring. In many cases, the installed vinyl can produce an authentic appearance and feel of legitimate hardwood, and these flooring varieties are at a lesser risk of water loss impacts. Protecting your property can begin with ensuring that you have the right approach to dry this flooring as soon as moisture and dampness pose a threat. 

While many homeowners might mistakenly believe that avoiding the substantial water damage in Homewood properties begins with just conventional drying and cleaning processes, this is rarely as effective as your house requires to remove the damage present altogether. Our SERVPRO team encounters many homes that have inadequately managed moisture and dampness after a water loss, and within a few days, distortion and warping of exposed materials like the flooring occur.    

One of the most critical aspects of water loss recovery is understanding the extent of the damage that the house faces. Our SERVPRO professionals have a deep inventory of discovery devices like infrared imagery, moisture sensors, and thermal tools that can help us to see beyond the surface of flooring to determine the full measure of damage to vinyl plank flooring installed in the property.  Often the underlying beams and supports must be dried to prevent structural weakening or mold growth. 

With the use of specialized equipment like the injecti-dry system and drying mats, our professionals can set up a consistent drying system that slowly draws moisture from the plank joints and subflooring if present. With the fast installation of these mats to address saturation and exposure, vinyl flooring options can often get preserved and restored fully.    

While vinyl flooring can be a less expensive alternative to hardwood options, water saturation can cause the same damage without the appropriate mitigation and rapid drying approaches. Our SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood can make all water loss outcomes “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (708) 747-9925.
