Drying Hardwood Floor Water Damage In A Little Rock Rental Home

If you find that pipe leak has left water damage in the hardwood flooring of your living room, it can be difficult to relax and overwhelming to consider cleaning up such a mess on your own.

When a leaky pipe creates water damage in your Little Rock rental home, SERVPRO has the means to eliminate moisture and save your structure from potential mold proliferation. Our team can be at your home within hours to move, dry, and disinfect affected furniture as well as address the accumulated moisture in your hardwood floor. With wood, it is especially vital to keep moisture levels low to prevent structural damage and mold growth, and our professionals can use moisture meters with long, Teflon-coated probes to monitor both your floor and subfloor's moisture levels while drying.

Our team can use tenting to remove water from your flooring more effectively. This process involves covering flooring at ground level with a large sheet of plastic that is usually about 6 millimeters in thickness. Once taped down, this plastic helps pull moisture in the air out of surfaces more rapidly and can be used in combination with dehumidifiers during drying to capture more water vapor.

When treating hardwood, it is vital to mitigate any permanent buckling, cupping, or warping of the flooring. During drying, centrifugal air movers can be positioned to pull up moisture from both on top of and underneath the floor, which can also help dry the plywood subfloor. SERVPRO technicians can use desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb this moisture and lower humidity considerably with the aid of materials like silica gel. In open areas like a living room, polyethylene chambers are often crafted to create smaller, contained chambers for faster drying.

SERVPRO of Northwest Little Rock is dedicated to providing the area with 24/7 disaster cleanup. Call us today at (501) 803-9700 for a swift, effective response to your disaster.
