Tenting wooden flooring to speed up drying

Camping in the den

When a water damage occurs on hard wood flooring, it is important to extract the water as quickly as possible.

Wood is porous and will absorb water that it comes into contact with.

When this occurs, based on how the wood is cut, it will "bowl" or "cup".

If this warping is caught in time, we can place equipment that will actually cause the wood to shrink back towards it original shape.

In this picture we see a shot of a wood floor that has been tented. The tent decreases the size of the drying chamber and focuses the process on the affected area. Like a hair dryer as opposed to a drip-dry.

The tenting will speed up the drying process, decrease the cost of the claim and make the right move for all involved.
