Flooring Damage After Flooding in San Antonio Homes

SERVPRO can help save your floors after your flood damage in San Antonio

Flooding after some of the severe storms that can impact the San Antonio area can leave several inches, or even feet, of standing water on the lower levels of your home. With many area properties being ranch-style homes constructed on a concrete slab at ground level, storm damage can allow for water penetration to migrate through the entire floor of the property. Materials like hardwood planks can resist water penetration for a short time but ultimately succumb to saturation, swelling, and disfigurement.

We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and our SERVPRO professionals can provide flood removal for San Antonio homes. If a homeowner takes several days to notify professional restoration providers like our team about the damage in their house, irreparable damage to construction materials can happen in as little as 24 hours.

In some situations, our professionals can arrive and deploy practical extraction tools like our electric sump pumps and trash pumps to remove standing water from the damaged areas consistently. After submersible pumps and wet vacuums have removed surface water, we can work to address trapped water in the wood flooring itself with drying mats and air movers. Both of these processes work on evaporative drying techniques but are not worth attempting if physical damage to the planks is visible.

Because our SERVPRO team also features a division of licensed general contractors, we can oversee the removal of wood plank flooring to expose subflooring materials. This exposure can expedite the drying of these lower support levels before our experienced contractors reconstruct the removed surface plank to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Water can collect on the flooring of your flooded home, making the preservation of wood planks or even carpeting impossible. Our SERVPRO of Braun Station team has the expertise and equipment to provide controlled demolition solutions and capable build back to get your home back to normal quickly. Give us a call today at (210) 267-2159.
