TIMBER FLOOR DRYING
Drying and restoring your timber floor to its original appeal
Timber floors are aesthetically pleasing to look at but they are also susceptible to water damage from a spill, leak or flooding. Excess water absorbed into timber can cause ‘cupping’. ‘Cupping’ is the process when the sides are higher than the centre of the board – resulting in a concave-shaped floorboard. The driving force for ‘cupping’ is a change in moisture content in the timber. That is why it is important to treat any water spills or leaks on timber flooring immediately.
The first thing a property owner can do is to mop up any excess water immediately. Water that has seeped into the timber boards will need to be treated by a professional timber floor drying and restoration specialist to ensure that the fibres are completely dried out.
Our 24/7 service can send a technician out to your property immediately to evaluate the situation and recommend the best solution before further damage can occur.
Our proven RED-I System to dry and restore your timber flooring
Removal – Our technician will begin by using a combination of tools and equipment to remove excess water on the timber floor. These can be anything from rags and mops to high-powered water extraction equipment.
Evaporation – Heaters and fans with air filters are used to further dry out the affected areas.
Dehumidification (Ventilation) – Industrial-strength dehumidifiers are applied to dry out the room.
Inspection – EMC (Equilibrium Moisture Content) is measured and compared with other unaffected areas to ensure that the timber process is successful. The technician will also complete a visual test to ensure that the timber has been restored to its original condition and that no mould or mildew is present.
