Water Damage to Wood Flooring
Ourteam of professionalsat SERVPROis always making sure to inspect spaces carefully for water damage. While some signs of water damage can go unseen, one indicator of damage is cupping or warping on a wood floor.
Cuppingis when the floor boards create a concave shape with higher sides than the center. Cupping can occur when the underside of the boards gain moisture.Warpingis more severe than cupping because it involves the floor buckling or popping off of the subfloor. Water vapors can cause this to happen.
A problem that can stem from neglecting floors with moisture is the possibility of microbial growth. If this continues without restoration, it can permanently damage your floor.
If you see cupping or warping going on in your property, do not hesitate to contact SERVPRO of Des Moines SW to extract the moisture and remediate the damage.
