Park City, Utah based Chem-Dry of Park City issued a public advisory reminding homeowners to check their washing machine drain pipe before leaving the laundry room. This is due to a recent case where a senior client’s wife, who has dementia, used the washing machine without the drain pipe being properly hooked-up. This costly mistake flooded the entire laundry room, kitchen, and hallways with hardwood floors, resulting in mitigation and repair costs of up to $18,000.
Daryl Olsen, from Chem-Dry of Park City, explains that hardwood floor water damage can be very tricky and expensive to address. “Speed is the key to saving your hardwood floors from permanent water damage. The first 24 hours are critical, and the longer the wood is exposed to water, the worse the damage will be. When wood gets wet, it begins to expand, leading the edges of the wood flooring to swell. This results in warping of the wooden plank’s edges and loosening of the glue beneath the surface, causing the floors to pop up as they expand,” he says. Furthermore, Olsen asserts that it is very important to remove the water quickly, not only to save the hardwood flooring but also to prevent mold growth—which is harder and more expensive to resolve.
Meanwhile, Chem-Dry of Park City shared a number of useful tips and guidelines on how to prevent such hardwood water damage from worsening. The most important advice they give homeowners is to find and stop the source of water as well as keep the floor free from soaked carpets, rugs, and furniture. Secondly, they advise homeowners to remove all the standing water by using a wet vacuum and wipe the affected areas until they are dry. “You can also use a dehumidifier to absorb the excess moisture and accelerate the drying process by using fans and leaving the doors and windows open,” says Olsen. Finally, they recommend hiring a professional water damage cleanup company because such companies know how to fully remove excess water; dry, dehumidify, and disinfect the affected area; restore the condition of soaked items, and remove all traces of mold from the property.
As noted on the company’s website, Chem-Dry of Park City has a team of professionally trained water damage restoration specialists who will go over the best possible solutions to help homeowners avoid any further damage to their property. Olsen also asserts that their water damage restoration experts help homeowners deal with insurance companies, an especially useful benefit given that not knowing what to say (or saying the wrong thing) to the insurance company could result in the claim being denied. He further states that hiring a professional water damage restoration company like Chem-Dry of Park City ensures that the property will be fully restored to its pre-damage condition.
