If you experience water damage in your home from a leaking refrigerator or you have a flood from rainwater and your hardwood floors get wet we have use a system to get your floors dried out. As wood gets wet it will begin to absorb the water like a sponge, will start to expand in size and will eventually warp. Our Rescue Mat System gives our professional restoration technicians the ability to dry out your flooring as quickly as possible. Utilizing the power of a high pressure blower, the rescue mat vacuums water vapor right through the surface of the floor. The technician will tape the mats down to the floor and then monitor the moisture content frequently by using a penetrating meter with a hammer probe. Speed is the key when it comes to water damage. The first twenty fours are critical, and the longer the water is in contact with your hardwood floors the more damage you will experience. Even if the water is on top of the wood finish, it can penetrate through the cracks between the planks and or can absorb into the sub floor underneath. One of the most obvious reasons to dry out your hardwood is to prevent mold growth, which if that occurs will be a much bigger problem to your health and can be very expensive to remedy. If you call our office and schedule our water damage technician out to your home immediately to properly dry them with our rescue mat system you may be able to save most of your hardwood flooring. This will help you avoid the cost and hassle of ripping up and hauling away your hardwood as well as having to pay for new wood and the installation.
