Water Heater Leak Plus Wood Flooring Equals Water Damage in West Windsor Township
When a water heater tank leaks, the amount of water damage it can deliver within a West Windsor Township home is concerning. Particularly so if the flooring in place is hardwood. The natural reaction of wood to water is to absorb it. In doing so, it swells and sometimes cups or crowns in place. If the extraction and drying process begins quickly enough, there is a good chance the floorboards have restoration potential. SERVPRO technicians use powerful water removal equipment that does a great job even pulling out embedded moisture. Among the drying equipment the techs use, drying mats are a great tool for forcing warm, dry air within the floorboards and allow them to dry in place.
