Revamping Your Floorboards During Commercial Water Damage Repair in New Providence
SERVPRO Can Restore Your Water-Damaged Floorboard in New Providence
Repairing damaged floorboards can present unique challenges when performing commercial water damage repairs. We have to perform the necessary restoration procedures to ensure they keep on playing their role of making your business appear appealing and functional. Floorboards can be made of stone, tile, laminate, engineered wood, or hardwood.
The floorboards in your New Providence property can be impacted in different ways after a water damage incident. It is our SERVPRO technicians' work to assess the damage's extent and determine whether it can be salvaged. Since the different types of floorboards have varying susceptibility to water damage, we use different restoration techniques.
If hardwood floorboards get exposed to water for a long time, they may develop cupping and warping. We perform the following procedures during restoration:
- Sanding: We sand to remove the water stains
- Refinishing: Normally done after sanding to ensure restored sections match with the existing ones
- Replacement: We do this when the damage is so extensive.
Although engineered floorboards are more resistant to moisture damage when compared to hardwood, they still get affected by cupping and warping. The restoration procedure is the same as the one we use when restoring hardwood floorboards. It is also not possible to restore laminate floorboards that have been exposed to water for an extended period; the only remedy is to do a replacement.
When SERVPRO technicians restore stone and tile floorboards, it is a different scenario. Even though they are resistant to water damage, they can still get damaged once water infiltrates to cause discoloration, chipping, and cracking. Our team normally removes and replaces the affected stones or tiles and re-applies the sealant if it has been compromised.
