Most of the time, water damaged hardwood floors can simply be sanded and refinished if the floors are dried properly in time. However, in some cases, replacement of water damaged hardwood floors is needed if there has been extensive expansion, “cupping”, to the wood itself. Restoration now would require tear out of the effected area, drying of the subfloor, replacement of the damaged area and sanding and refinishing of the entire room to ensure proper matching.

As with any water damage emergency, it is important to contact water damage restoration professionals quickly to help protect your home from further damage and to ensure your home is repaired properly.
