Water damage to a hardwood floor leads to lingering problems if left unaddressed. It is worth noting that hardwood floorings’ polyurethane coatings, which prevent dirt and liquid from contacting the wood, are not fully waterproof. When an insidious drip of water reaches the coating, such as from a continuous moisture leak, it will cause significant water damage to the floor.
Despite the trend of vinyl and wood flooring, laminate floors are still popular due to their clean look and affordability. They’re also a lot easier to maintain compared to carpet and hardwood floors. With the right care, laminate floors will last about 15 – 25 years, according to National Floors Direct.But if you suspect your laminate floors have water damage, here are some signs to look for as well as prevention tips to keep water and mold from destroying it.

“We had a major damage when the water pipe from the ceiling burst (see attached pictures 1 to 3 before restoration). Our insurance company (All State) referred us to Service Master. We were so happy about the subsequent clean up, remediation and restoration performed by Service Master. Raja Devini and his crew were outstanding! We highly recommend Service Master!!!”

“We had these guys out to take care of our moisture remediation after our upstairs neighbor’s washer hoses broke, sending water all over a portion of her unit and then leaking through our bathroom ceiling. The two techs who initially came were very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and thorough, leaving nothing to chance. They checked everywhere with their moisture detectors in and around the bathroom. Once the insurance work was squared away, they returned along with a very nice technician, Lennard who is just the same as they are. After their humidifier, and other heat apparatuses were installed, another technician, Julio returned a couple times to check on the abatement and today to take everything out; he too is very thorough, knowledgeable, kind, and knows his stuff. As another Yelper said, they only do clean up and abatement, not repairs and painting. If you are ever in a situation like this, call these guys. You will be glad you did. Keep up the good work guys.”
