Moisture and Water Removal Strategies Target Surface and Trapped Water in Mount Vernon Properties

After situations like burst pipes or ceiling leaks, common flooring elements like engineered wood can be at risk of absorbing standing water and become warped. Our experienced SERVPRO of Skagit County team works quickly to manage surface and trapped moisture to protect your home and prevent more invasive restoration needs.

Clearing Surface Water Concerns 

Water sitting on the surface of engineered wood flooring can be the focal point for water removal in Mount Vernon homes. Clearing any pooling and surface moisture is vital to reducing the penetration of this water through seams and flooring pores to bloat and disfigure the planks. There are multiple water removal strategies, including:

  • Squeegee Wands
  • Light Wands
  • Wet Vacuums
  • Submersible Pumps

Removal of Trapped Moisture in Wood Plank Flooring

There are several strategies for reducing the moisture content of wood flooring after saturation occurs. Tenting isolates the affected areas making tools like drying mats operate more efficiently. This process enables us to monitor it closely for moisture content changes to ensure that over-drying the material does not occur.

Controlled Demolition and Reinstallation Where Needed

We can also help with the controlled demolition and repairs of damaged wood elements and flooring when necessary with a general contractor license. If trapped moisture in wood planks has already chemically bonded with the material, restoration is no longer possible.

Removing water from the floors of your water-damaged home can be a challenge for even experienced restoration professionals. With our fast response and leading recovery equipment, we can protect exposed elements to reduce demolition and reconstruction where possible. Give our SERVPRO of Skagit County team a call today at (360) 873-8744.
