Hardwood Floor Drying

When dealing with water damage, performing the cleanup as soon as possible is always ideal. Particularly so, when it comes to real hardwood floor drying in either your residential or commercial location. Engineered hardwood or other flooring types do not call for such specific remediation needs. However, since hardwood is delicate and porous, if a leak, overflow or other water issue soaks into your wood floors, it becomes a race against time before permanent damage occurs.

You may not initially see any warping on a water-loss affected wood floor. In fact, hardwood flooring is so intricately cut and installed, there are several nooks where water can effectively ‘sit’ and cause movement from underneath. Eventually, this movement will show on the surface as warping or cupping.

How Water Affects Hardwood Floors

When water sits on hardwood floors for extended periods of time, it can get absorbed into the the pores of the wood. The edges of the flooring will start to expand or swell, which can cause warping of the wood and an uneven surface. If left to dry naturally, this can cause permanent damage to the wood flooring resulting in the need to replace it. However, if you can have a professional dry the wood quickly enough, the floors can usually be saved with no noticeable damage.

Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair’s Hardwood Floor Drying Process

To combat the damaging effects of water on the hardwood, we utilize a specialty professional drying system meant only for use on hardwood floors. How cool is that!

Our system pulls moisture through fluted panels on drying mats to pull the water out of the wet material by using negative air pressure. Then, corrective action is taken to gently and steadily lower the humidity of the wood back to normal levels. When done immediately after moisture exposure, this process leaves your floors looking like nothing ever happened. Best of all? The flooring remains in-place as we work to dry it out, allowing you to get back to life that much faster.

foundation repair-bowing walls/waterproofing/window wells in Topeka, KS

I waited to submit my review until the work completed was put to the test. Overall-this has been an exceptional experience. The work crew at Lamunyon headed by Caleb were very professional, efficient, courteous and hard working. There was no water in my basement during the heavy rains and flooding! Regarding service, I did have one minor problem and after letting them know, was contacted by Dave that same evening and a workman came to my home to fix it the next day. I was a little shocked by how quickly they took care of the problem. Without hesitation--I highly recommend them.

Repairs to settling foundation and bowed wall in Topeka, KS

Lamunyon's David Hoes and his crew were very professional about explaining the procedure in the way they were going to correct our problem.David and his crew very polite, courtesy, nice to talk to and polite. Our house had settled about 3" and the doors sticking or not closing. We also had a bowed basement wall with a lot of cracks. David and his crew came in with there equipment closed the basement door and went right t work. At the end of each day David would explain what they done for the day and that they will be here the next day and started about 8. It was unbelievable at the amount of work that they had to do just raise the house enough to secure the house from settling again. By Friday they had lifted the house, install three square beams in front of the bowed wall, cleaned up the dust and dirt, wiped off the floor on their hands and knee. Now, the doors close shut with no sticking, the house does not make cracking noise, and we feel alot better about our house now. We want to give these guys a big thank you and that they deserve praise from their company.
