Cleaning And Refinishing Your Water Damaged Glen Head Property
Cleaning and Refinishing Glen Head Hardwoods After Water Losses
Widespread water loss incidents can have a diverse impact on the hardwood structural elements it becomes exposed to in Glen Head homes. From cabinets and shelves to hardwood flooring, absorption often occurs more quickly than many property owners might think. While a swift response from our SERVPRO team can help to reduce the severity of this absorption and material degradation, lasting damage might have already taken place.
Water cleanup in Glen Head homes can encompass many areas of your home, but it can also include the restoration and recovery of specific structural elements and materials. In some situations, it is sufficient to dry and clean off any lingering residues from the surface layer of hardwood flooring and fixtures. However, it is also possible that these materials could require refinishing for more considerable aesthetic damages.
Cleaning off residues and soiling from hardwood materials throughout the home involves a range of our potent cleaning products and chemical agents. While cellulose in the wood can be the reason that flooring is so prone to absorbing standing water, the same concern exists with wet cleaners and higher acidic cleansers that can mar the finish of wood surfaces. Our SERVPRO team works to find the ideal balance between the present damage and the needs of the flooring or cabinetry to restore its original sheen and finish.
When marring of these surfaces already exists before our technicians can employ cleaning techniques and products, refinishing might be the only feasible route to making this water damage “Like it never even happened.” We can strip the finish where necessary and fall onto the skilled hands of our in-house residential contractors to repair and refinish these surfaces. Refinishing can almost always be more cost-effective and efficient than removal and replacement.
Restoring the hardwood in your home after a water loss incident involves more decisions and techniques than you might have thought initially. Our SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho technicians can help to restore and recover marred surfaces to get your home back to preloss condition fast. Give us a call anytime at (516) 671-1919.
