SERVPRO Has Specialized Flood Damage Treatment for West Lynn Residents

Should you be the unfortunate victim of flooding after a recent heavy storm in West Lynn, you may have some substantial interior damage to deal with. Hardwood flooring that takes on any water requires specialized care if you want to return your home to pre-flood condition. SERVPRO is there to address all types of water damage, from clean water events to contaminated flood water and sewage backups, to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Can I salvage my wood flooring after storm flood damage in West Lynn? SERVPRO works to restore versus replace whenever possible. Even though interior flooding from a storm is considered black water flooding, there could be many areas of the flood-loss zone we can salvage and repair.

Wood Flooring and Water Removal

Several things can affect wood flooring and how the materials deal with flooding regardless of the water source, including:

  • The quality of your initial flooring installation can increase the likelihood of success. Properly installed and well-fitted flooring is more likely to withstand flood challenges than poorly fitted flooring.
  • Hardwoods installed on concrete pads or crawlspaces require specific treatment protocols
  • It also depends on how quickly water removal services begin. The faster you call SERVPRO for water mitigation, the better the chances we can rescue your hardwood flooring.

Keep in mind that not all flood water is visible, so you also benefit from our moisture detection services. We know that hidden moisture brings costly secondary damage and the onset of hazardous black mold. Flooding under and around your wood flooring can be as damaging as water pooling on the surface.

After water removal and drying, any damaged and unsalvageable flooring gets replaced using controlled demolition, so your interior is returned to pre-flood condition - General Contractor License #: CS-114298. All surfaces get thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with the help of trusted EPA-registered antimicrobials.

SERVPRO of Saugus, West Lynn leaves no stone unturned when handling storm flood damage. Request help online or contact our customer care team by calling (978) 744-0409. We are available for 24/7 emergency service.
