Quick Response to Water Damage in Fayetteville
Water damage to a home or business can be devastating. It is important to remove the water as soon as possible to avoid additional property damage up which may include demolition.
That isn’t always the most ideal option for business and home owners and can prolong the repair process. The photos of the hardwood floors attached are a perfect example. These homeowners in Fayetteville called about a burst pipe on the second floor during which froze during an extremely cold weather event. Water was beginning to stand on the floor as a result their beautiful hardwood floors on the entire first floor of the home were affected.
The first photo shows the floors beginning to cup from the standing water. Our professional team responded quickly and extracted the water and dried the floors, tenting the floor with plastic became a focus to dry the hardwoods in order to salvage them. They then used a desiccant dehumidifier and wood floor drying units to slowly dry the floors. Slow drying prevents us from over drying the hardwoods or drying too fast. Once drying is complete, the hardwoods need to acclimate at least 30 days before they can be refinished.
The second photo is after the drying process. The hardwoods are already looking excellent and on their way back to their original state.
