Arizona weather is lots of sunshine and minimal concern for natural disasters or even great amounts of moisture. But, monsoon season can hit us with torrential downpours. If we aren’t prepared, the rain could come in and ruin certain types of flooring, in particular hardwood.
Hardwood floors and large amounts of rain water do not mix. Even though Arizona has few problems with flooding and large amounts of water, during our rainy season, the rain and wind are unpredictable. So, what does flooding, even in small amounts, do to your hardwood? It can warp, bubble or even grow mould that can be harmful to you and your family.
If you do find yourself with excess water, here is what to do:
You want to be able to dry out the affected area as soon as possible. Opening doors and windows to use Arizona’s sunshine to aid in the drying process is the best option.
Using a mop or towels to pick up excess water can speed up the drying process. If the water damage is extensive, it may not just be a topic fix, the use of a Wet vac can be handy in these situations as well.
There are a lot of DIY videos and blogs on how remove your hardwood floor when there is damage, but there are many issues you can run into that could make a small fix into a large financial hole.
