Water Damage Oxnard Area Wood Flooring Escapes Water Damage with a Swift SERVPRO Service Attention Oxnard Homeowners! Prevent Water Damage to Your Floors by Calling SERVPRO Promptly

Preserving Your Flooring with Water Removal in Your Oxnard Home

Certain disasters and unforeseen incidents pose a substantial risk to construction materials and surfaces throughout your Oxnard residence. Your flooring is often one of these highly affected areas, regardless of the disaster to your property. With significant water loss incidents, however, saturation of your flooring materials can begin to happen almost immediately, posing a risk to preserving these materials if the situation does not get addressed promptly.

A primary reason that our SERVPRO technicians remain available 24/7 through our emergency response team is to be there for threats to your Oxnard home, such as a need for water removal, whenever they might occur. Water loss incidents can leave pooling throughout the affected areas of your residence, which seeps into the flooring materials right away. With a fast response to the situation, in most cases, these materials can get salvaged and returned to their original condition.

Wood flooring is especially susceptible to pooling water, as even hardwoods are porous enough to absorb the moisture and allow it to contort and bloat the material. After only a brief period from several hours to days, the composition of these wood planks can become compromised, leaving our SERVPRO technicians no choice but to suggest their removal and replacement with new materials.

With a fast call from you about the water loss situation in your home, our technicians can arrive quickly to begin extraction and drying efforts. The quicker that we can put our equipment and expertise to work in your home, the better the odds of preserving the original materials used in the construction of your residence. For wood flooring, our technicians often focus on the use of drying mats, air movers, and dehumidification equipment to draw the water back out of the pores of the wood for extraction. Hidden water in the joints of tongue and groove planks and the underlying supporting joists are often ignored resulting in further damage and possible mold growth.

When you need water removal services for your home, time is not on your side. Water damage spreads quickly and can cause irreparable effects to the materials and contents of your property if not addressed immediately. Whenever disaster strikes your home, you should remain assured that our SERVPRO of Oxnard restoration technicians are going to be there to help. Give our emergency response team a call anytime at (805) 984-2347.
