Water Damaged Wood Flooring

By the time I arrived, the wood flooring that was underneath the carpeting was buckling. I had never ran into a situation like this before and was trying to figure out why the carpeting was raised about 3 inches off the floor in certain areas of the bedroom. This is a very common situation, one that we run into all the time. However, it is never common when it is happening in your own home.

You need to find and replace any wood that has been affected by the water damage and replace it with 3/4″ plywood. After that you can reassemble the carpeting.

It’s hard to imagine a brand-new home, with this kind of damage but it happens every once in a while. The plumber didn’t connect one of the drains properly and it was going to cost some one and a lot of money.

Wood Floor Repair Tip- Remove the damaged flooring and do not replace until the flooring is completely dry. Make sure that the new wood flooring is sitting somewhere in the house to acclimate. Before the wood flooring can be installed, it should be in the home for at least one to two weeks, stacked up in a safe location. For more information please contact a local restoration company as soon as possible.
