SERVPRO Uses Advanced Equipment to Restore Water-Damaged Floors in Cambridge

You can always go right if you work with commercial water restoration experts after a water damage experience. If you are a business owner, never assume that everything is okay, even if you cannot see any standing water within your premises. Some building components, such as hardwood floors, are known to retain moisture and must be inspected by a professional to prevent future damage.

The focus of our SERVPRO team during water damage mitigation in Cambridge is to ensure your hardwood floor does not warp, cup, or buckle after getting exposed to the water. It is normal for such defects to develop on wooden floors after exposure to water, and their severity is determined by the time it takes before the restoration can be done. We usually advise property owners to seek professional water cleanup services as soon as possible.

Expect us to perform the following mitigation techniques when restoring your wooden floors:

  • Run air movers to reduce the room's relative humidity
  • Position space heaters appropriately to increase the rate of evaporation
  • Perforate floor finishes to enhance evaporation - we do this in consultation with the customer and the adjuster

There are instances where the hardwood floor may appear dry even when the subfloor is still wet. Our SERVPRO technicians never make assumptions since such issues are crucial, so we use specialized equipment to confirm. For example, we can take readings using a penetrating moisture meter to determine whether additional drying is necessary.

Given that we always consult with your adjuster before making any major demolitions, you do not risk losing your compensation. Our job is to move any items from the rooms to enhance the drying process. Where waste disposal is required, we do it as per the local and IICRC regulations.

SERVPRO of Cambridge / Belmont is experienced in water, fire, storm, and mold cleanup for commercial and residential properties. Call (617) 864-7378 to work with a team that is Faster To Any Size Disaster when an emergency comes calling.
