SERVPRO Technicians Employ Advanced Technology to Restore Flooring in Carol Stream Homes

When any type of water intrusion occurs in a Carol Stream home, damaged flooring is one of the main problems. It is a situation that SERVPRO technicians deal with on a daily basis. If this case, a pipe burst, spilling water into the kitchen and living room and impacting the hardwood floors.

What Can Happen to Hardwood Floors When Wet?
To salvage your floors, you need to get professional help immediately. The longer the water is absorbed, the worse it becomes for the flooring materials. The water needs extracting as quickly as possible. There is an acceptable amount of moisture for hardwood floors, usually around 10%. If the levels go above that, especially for extended times, damage can occur. The planks can distort, and the subflooring can have problems. Buckling, cupping, and crowning are the result of the planks and strips becoming distorted. Water cleanup in Carol Stream is needed to prevent this from happening.

Restoring Hardwood Floors
Our technicians can restore the flooring if swift action is taken. Our truck-mounted extractors can connect to special floor mats that pull moisture from several layers. This ensures that water in the subflooring gets appropriately extracted. The crew also uses air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the floor thoroughly.

Comprehensive Restoration Service
When there is water damage, more than flooring can be affected. SERVPRO can restore the following:
    •    Structural elements
    •    Furniture
    •    Carpet and padding
    •    Household items
    •    Linens and drapes
    •    Books and documents
    •    Wood items

Our goal is to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.” We restore rather than replace whenever possible. If water intrudes on your home, do not let it sit.
