Winter in general, along with the recent snowfall in the Miami Valley, can result in damage to your hardwood floors. Snow, which also contains dirt and salt, brought inside by your shoes and boots is a recipe for disaster for hardwood floors. If you notice any discoloration or warping, especially near entry doors or high traffic areas, you should contact Dragon Restoration immediately. Damage to hardwood floors can become permanent in as little as 1½ - 3 days.
Drying these areas with towels may lead you to believe that the problem will be solved, but this is not always the case. Usually the problem is deeper, as in under the surface of the floor. The undersides of wood floorboards have grooves, or flutes, that allow water to be trapped under the floor. You cannot reach or dry up this water by using a towel. You need to consult a professional, like Dragon Restoration. We have been successfully drying floors in Dayton and the surrounding Miami Valley for more than 16 years.
A different concern in these situations is the possibility of mold. Mold under your floors is an invisible threat that may not be easily found. It can cause bacteria and allergens to build up that can affect the health of individual family members in many different ways.
At Dragon Restoration, we have the tools and the skills necessary to successfully dry wet hardwood floors. That’s why many hardwood floor installers in the Miami Valley refer their customers with wet floor problems to us first. Winter doesn’t have to permanently damage your expensive hardwood floors.
