Gym Floor Drying

6/6/2017 (Permalink)

Whether the cause is a roof leak, sprinkler malfunction, or accident, wet gym floors create a stressful situation for everyone involved.  Wood gym floors are designed to take a beating but when they get soaked through with water it can be a whole other level of damage.  From swelling, heaving and cupping to completely buckling of the floor, water can throw some serious punches.

Traditionally, if a hardwood sports floor was wet enough to cause these problems tear-out and replacement was considered the only option.  However, specialty equipment, quick action, and a thorough knowledge of the most current protocols can be enough to save many floors.  

A new hardwood gym floor can cost upwards of multiple hundreds of thousands, not to mention the charges for removal of the old floor.  Restoration methods used by SERVPRO of Morgan, Cass, Macoupin, and Montgomery Counties are proven to improve the chances of being able to save this flooring rather than replacement.
