Extensive water damage can affect the condition of the floor, which may further impact the overall structure of a home. If you have a water-damaged floor, the best solution to damaged floors is prompt replacement.

So, when should a homeowner replace water-damaged floors?


When There is Extensive Water Damage

Inspecting your home after water damage helps you know whether it is extensive. Significant deterioration causes floors to lift and swell. They may also feel squishy when you step on them. This is a sign to replace them.

When Water is Unsanitary

Grey or black water is unsanitary. This water is highly contaminated with bacteria and viruses. This can result in the transmission of diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and diarrhea. To avoid this risk, it is advisable to call ServiceMaster for extensive and safe water damage restoration.

When the Area is Wet for a Long period

Not drying water within 24-48 hours can cause extensive problems. This can result in lower tensile strength and shrinkage possibility on floors. Excess water may also attract mold growth which poses a significant risk to human health. If the floors lack quick repair, the effects may worsen.
