Water Damaged Floors: Cupping is the result of moisture absorption in between the wood planks
Water damage to this Patchogue home’s hardwood flooring left the flooring moisture laden and cupped. Cupping is the result of moisture absorption in between the wood planks causing them to expand and lift upwards. SERVPRO of Medford uses specific water restoration equipment designed for this situation. We have industry certified technicians that have field experience in dealing with damaged wood flooring. The water would be removed from the wood flooring slowly using a controlled moisture reduction process that would flatten out the cupping of the planks. Industrial air movers and dehumidifiers would be employed to circulate the air and regulate the drying time. This process saves time and money over replacing the damaged flooring.
