Water Damage Restoration: How to Prevent Water Damage to Your Flooring, St. Augustine, Florida

No matter what kind of flooring you have, it only takes a few hours for water damage to begin, starting a chain of events that could end with expensive repair bills. When a broken pipe or missing shingles pour water onto your carpet or hardwood flooring, time is of the essence. The water damage restoration experts at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach in Florida have some tips for mitigating the worst of the damage.

As soon as you discover standing water in your home, it's important to:

  • Stop The Flow: Whenever possible, you should immediately find the source of the water penetration and do what you can to stop or slow it down. If a pipe is broken, you may need to shut off water to the entire house; for a leaking roof, you might just have to wait out the storm.

  • Remove As Much Water As Possible: If the water penetrates down into the subflooring, the wood can warp and play home to dangerous mold growths. Open up all the windows, point fans outside, and soak up as much of the water as you can.
  • Call A Professional: In truth, a complete water damage restoration service requires the experience and specialized training of a professional; they can identify potential problems and prevent them from occurring in the future. This is especially true if your flooring suffered from exposure to contaminated water, which may render your home unsafe until the issue is dealt with.
