Wood Floors Pasadena

It is a fact no one can deny that water is one of the elements that can destroy wood floors. With just little amount of water, wood may buckle or cup if it is always present.

In some areas like the bathroom, where floors will always get wet, especially if you have kids, floors may tend to cup or buckle or swell. How much more if your floor is drowned by flood? Can you do something to save it? This depends on how long the water sits in your floor. You may or may not save all of the floors but trying is better than not taking action.

One thing for sure though, if you can find that your floor is buckling, you cannot save them anymore but you have to let go of it and start with new flooring all over again. Sound sad? Yes it is but you don’t have any choice. If your wood floor buckles, it is already disconnected from the joist or sub-floor below. But if there is no sign of buckling, only cupping, there is still ways to save them. Floors that cupped can be rubbed down and remove its coat or sealer.

You will use the following for hand procedure:

. Some detergent that is mild
. Water
. Stiff, hard brush
. Some kind of bleach or disinfectant
. Absorbent cloth

How to restore:

1. You have to remove the water in the floor first.

2. Rub the floors briskly using the brush and all other woodwork that water has touched. Be sure to take all the mud, grime, dirt, silt or grit. These can help the growth of mildew or mold in your wood floors.

3. Wash all the dirt away by cleaning with water, with some detergent and added disinfectant. With the use of the broom, sweep the water outside the house.

4. When they are free from all the dirt and water, use the dry cloth to wipe off all remaining water in the floor.

5. Air-dry the floor with the use of fans and other drying method and some Dehumidifiers. Do not use heat to dry them because there is a tendency that they will split or crack.

6. After the floor is totally dry, if some parts have cupped sand your wood floors heavily using orbital or drum sander if some floors have cupped to take them down or to level the high areas down to the other floors.

7. Refinish your floors to get them back into their natural splendor and elegance.

8. Some area may not be totally leveled down so, you may face-nail the floor boards back. Find out if the sub-floor is not also damaged or soaked with water below your wood floors. If it is, the saving of your wood floors is not a good idea if there is water below that is not taken out. Especially if your sub-floor is concrete and the water is below or above the underlayment.

The tendency is the water evaporates to your floor and will cause moisture below the floor. Molds and mildew will then appear because of moisture and humidity. Molds and mildew will surely damage the floors totally. You might have to replace your wood floors if it can’t be saved then.
