Winter is quickly arriving. Lets start protecting our homes now. Winter can be a tough time for a variety of reasons. One area of your home that can suffer during winter is your hardwood flooring. Snow sticks to our shoes and we track it in the house without knowing. It can then come of your shoes and melt on the hardwood floor, leaving little puddles of ice cold water all over the place. Which could be dangerous for family members in your home as well as for your hardwood floors.
One of the most effective ways to prevent water damage in the winter is to eliminate the amount of water being tracked onto your hardwood floors. Welcome mats and runners can help to remove any excess snow and water from shoes when entering the home. You can also ask guests to remove their shoes when they enter your home.
When your hardwood floors are exposed to water, the best way to prevent water damage is to clear up the spill immediately. Soak up the liquid with paper towels or cloths to reduce the amount of moisture that is absorbed by the wood.
If it’s too late to prevent water damage to your hardwood floors, then you’ll need to know how to treat them. In extreme cases, your flooring may need to be replaced, if the wood has become warped, for example. We can repair your hardwood floors after water damage, matching the materials and colors so that your floors look "Like it never even happened."
