SERVPRO Solves Problems in the Flooring of Santa Ana Homes with Flood Damage

Flood damage to your home in Santa Ana can leave many different objects and materials permanently scarred by the sheets of rushing water, but one of the most damaged parts of the house is likely to be your flooring. Wood, tile, and especially carpets can all sustain heavy damage during a flood, and the only hope of saving them is to get a professional mitigation company like SERVPRO on the site quickly to stop more damage from happening. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. Here is a quick overview of how storm flooding may impact the different flooring materials in your home, both short and long-term.

Tile
Tile floors are usually among the most resilient materials in a Santa Ana home after flood damage, but still require some cleaning and drying after most disasters. Depending on how severe the damage is and what the tiles are made of, they may need to be cleaned, polished, or even partially replaced and re-laid. We also find it essential to dry tile floors quickly to stop the spread of mold in grout lines.

Carpets
Carpeting often sustains some of the worst damage in a flood-damaged home. While we try to preserve as much as possible, only if the wet areas are free of contaminated waters, we are often forced to replace the carpeting in large parts or all of our clients' homes. In a crawlspace home, the underlaying subfloor and structure must be dried to specific levels to ensure that no secondary damage occurs. It is especially important that we decide on a course of action quickly for carpets, as they can easily become the focal point for a mold infestation that can spread across the entire building.

Wood
Different types of wood react in different ways to water. Some might bend along their lengths, others along their widths, and some may merely shrink or expand. We incorporate specialized treatments into our drying process to make sure that any affected wood floors in your home can be restored to their original sizes and shapes. We can use drying mats to help draw out moisture from the joints and beams. Towards the end of our restoration process, we can also refinish the materials, if necessary.
