SERVPRO Water Restoration Technicians in Easton Restore Hard Wood Flooring Whenever Possible

After a flood in Easton, your first thought maybe that the category 3 black floodwater destroyed everything. Do not rush to discard everything in your home completely. SERVPRO's goal is the less expensive option of restoration over replacement. Before the restoration process begins, technicians make it a priority to fully extract the floodwater, provide cleanup, and thoroughly dry the impacted area. Since floodwater contains groundwater contamination, our IICRC technicians use safety measures, including appropriate PPE, to ensure safe working and living conditions.

The Floors Need Refinishing, Do I Have To Strip the Old Finish First? The SERVPRO Team Uses Specialized Equipment to Remove Old Finish Before Reapplying
Ideally, the initial flood damage cleanup in your Easton property goes smoothly, and your floors are dried adequately. Once technicians perform those initial crucial steps, they go about restoring your home to preloss condition. Removing damaged finish and reapplying for an even surface and effective vapor barrier. Rotary Floor Machines use abrasion to remove the finish and create an even surface.

How Does a Rotary Floor Machine Work?
    •    Used to buff and strip finish from wood flooring.
    •    Technicians attach a pad to the drive block on the rotary (roto) machine. Pads vary per the abrasion level required.
    •    In some cases, technicians may opt to use a cleaning solution before refinishing. They release the solution and apply it on to the surface in a swirling motion.
    •    The solution tank requires cleaning chemicals pre-mixed with warm water.

It is crucial to pay attention to details such as even finish during any restoration project to ensure adequate and long-lasting results.
