Water Damaged Flooring in New Iberia
Overnight, the leaking water line in the adjacent bathroom soaked this engineered wood flooring with water that soaked into the boards like a sponge. The New Iberia customer made the call to our SERVPRO franchise seeking help with this damaging water event. Because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, we soon arrived and vacuumed up the pooling water. The plastic vapor barrier did protect most of the plywood subfloor from extensive damage, but many of the wood slats were not salvageable. The work in progress in the Before Photo shows how much of the now not available for replacement was removed. Our fast water extraction and drying with our advanced equipment did prevent the baseboards and walls from suffering damage. We strive to preserve when possible and demolish and replace only when necessary. The furnishings remained dry, the sheathing returned to normal moisture content levels, and the cleaned area rugs would soon be on top of new wood flooring.
