Does my Floor Have Water Damage?
When a water damage occurs, one of the first materials to be affected is your flooring. SERVPRO North Huntsville follows IICRC water damage remediation standards to determine whether a flooring material is or is not salvageable. Each material has a different set of signs for water damage, and it is beneficial for a homeowner to be able to identify early signs of water damage so that our technicians can address the problem immediately.
- Carpet: Discoloration, odor, mold, or mildew
- Tile: Possible discoloration, empty or hollow sound when tapped on
- Hardwood: Buckling, dark spots or discoloration, bulging, or cupping
- Laminate: Swelling around the edges, warping, discoloration, mold or mildew smell
- Linoleum: Discoloration
If you suspect that your flooring is showing early signs of water damage, call SERVPRO North Huntsville at (256) 534-1177 as soon as possible!
