Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

What steps should you take if your home floods?

2/13/2022 (Permalink)

The sooner you can deal with your flooded floors, the better. Wood's cellulose fibers absorb water quickly but release it slowly. As a result, you should begin removing the water with your shop vacuum as soon as feasible. Think again if you feel your wood floors are so well-finished that water cannot get to the bare wood. Aside from the top layer, wood floors contain several infiltration points: between seams, via coating breaches, under baseboards, through heating registers, and a variety of other places.

The same as with carpeting, the key to preventing mold and mildew growth is the same: Get rid of the filth. Mold and mildew are caused by a combination of water and soil, not just water alone.
