Natural Timber Floor Drying
Natural timber floor drying or wooden flooring is one of the most warm and inviting flooring solutions available to home owners. Investing in flooring from a renewable resource will see you having a floor that can last a lifetime if cared for properly. What happens though if your beautiful timber floor sustains significant water damage or flood? Did you know if your timber floor sustains water or flood damage you don’t necessarily need to remove them completely and throw them away! Luckily natural timber has a chance of being saved as opposed to floating flooring which would need to be removed if severely inundated by water. There are factors though that need to be considered such as the species of wood, how long the timber has been inundated by water, what type of water and what type of subfloor it has been affixed to.
Flood restoration and remedial work needs to start immediately to have maximum effect and to prevent cupping of the wood.

Timber Floor Repairs
If your timber floors have been damaged by clean water they may be able to be restored and repaired. The trick is to commence the drying of the wooden floor (above and below it) as soon as possible to prevent the boards from cupping and warping. Commencing the drying process immediately also lessens the risk of mould growing on the timber and as we know, mould left untreated could cause some potential health problems.
South Queensland Restorations have emergency response vehicles carrying all the necessary equipment to commence your timber floor repairs. Our experienced and qualified water damage Brisbane technicians are available 24/7 to assist you if you have been unfortunate enough to suffer water damage whether it be from flood, burst pipes or consistent leaks.
Using our specialised equipment we remove the moisture from the floor boards so they can return to a dry state as soon as possible. Only once all the moisture has been removed and a moisture test should be carried out to determine this, can floor boards be re-sanded and sealed or carpet laid over the top. If floorboards are not completely dry before re-sanding or covering with carpet the boards can end up with a con-vexed effect. If there is concrete below the timber flooring a concrete moisture test should be done to ensure no residual moisture is apparent also.
Our experienced team have been helping people with water damaged floors and carpets between Brisbane and the Gold Coast for many years! Make sure you contact the experts at South Queensland Restorations for natural timber floor restoration and repairs after water damage, so you don’t make your floor look worse!
