Damaged Floors in Bourbonnais Can Be Salvaged with SERVPRO's Fast Action

When water enters your home through the bottom, from a flood or sewer backup, or from the top, due to storm damage, plumbing or appliance failure, it is a given that your flooring is likely to suffer some damage. All types of flooring can be affected, including cement or concrete, laminate, hardwood, tile or carpeting. The steps necessary to restore the flooring in your home after water damage will vary depending on the type and amount of time the water remained on the floor and its covering. SERVPRO technicians are highly qualified to investigate your water damaged flooring and to develop a comprehensive plan to restore your floors and attachments to the condition they were in before the water invaded.

Flooring in Bourbonnais is vulnerable not only to water damage but also to secondary problems if the problem is not managed quickly and microbial growth occurs. The sooner our crew can consult with you the faster we will be able to respond by drying out the flooring and determining what type of repair replacement or refinishing will be necessary. Hardwood floors can react well, but only if we are able swiftly to extract the water and direct airflow and add heat as needed both above and below the flooring.  Ceramic and asphalt-tiled floors also bounce back in most cases as long as there has been little or no water infiltration to the sub-flooring, again mandating that standing water is removed fast and airflow established. 
Vinyl and laminate flooring may not survive water damage, but SERVPRO will evaluate each situation and suggest a replacement if restoration is not possible. Carpeting frequently can be dried in place or removed to dry and reinstalled. Area rugs are almost always dry-able, and we will make every effort to restore their appearance and function. The padding may need to be replaced but often can be dried as well. Our technicians will pay particular attention to the condition of the subfloors in all cases. If the surface under carpeting, hardwood, tile or laminate is wet, we must solve that issue as well. Our specialized equipment, IICRC best practice methodology, and experience ensure that once we have completed our treatment, restoration or replacement of your water damaged flooring you will be able to enjoy your home again in preloss condition faster than you thought possible. "Like it never even happened."
When water soaks your flooring, the fast response of SERVPRO of Kankakee County is critical to a successful restoration. Operators are on alert 24/7 at (815) 597-5315 waiting for your call to set up an inspection and plan of action today
