Flooding and hardwood flooring don't mix (as seen in this photo from a building in Houston after Hurricane Harvey left water behind.)
Depending on how long the floor was wet, damage can vary. Here are some signs of damage to look for:
1. Staining and/or discoloration
2. Cupping and buckling from absorbed moisture
3. Popping nails
4. Lifting of floorboards (especially at the ends)
5. Mold growth (can occur within 48 hours of flooding)
If you suspect your hardwood floors have come in contact with water, give us a call.
