Our team at Ault Restoration has extensive experience in working with renovation companies and contractors, and we have heard countless tales of techs who discovered previously unknown or unaddressed water damage in their clients’ properties. If you find water damage in a client’s home, you can turn to us to get the repair services you need to restore it to great condition.
In this article, we will focus on our floor water damage repair services, going over some key information you need to know about them and how they work.
- Signs of Floor Water Damage – First, we’ll go over a few ways to tell if the floor has been damaged by water. Hardwood floors will buckle, or show dark stains, while tile floors will often grow mold or come loose from the subfloor. Even vinyl and laminate floors are susceptible to water damage and will become similarly warped.
- Floor Water Damage Repair – When it comes to the floor water damage repair process, the first step is to remove the damaged flooring. Our team will inspect the floor to determine how much has been damaged and then remove all damaged material. We’ll also inspect the subfloor, as in some cases, it may need to be removed as well.
- Flooring Replacement – After we have removed all the damaged material, our team will proceed to the next step in floor water damage repair, which is to install new flooring to replace it. If necessary, we will first install new subflooring, then we’ll install the new hardwood, tile, laminate, vinyl, or other flooring on top to make the floors look as good as new.
