Wood Floor Drying

Wood Floor Drying and why it’s critical to act quickly


We all know that wood floors are beautiful and durable. However, they also need to be adequately cared for in order to maintain their appearance and longevity. One way wood flooring can become damaged is through water damage, especially when it comes from rain or a leaky roof. When this happens, you should not panic!

At 24/7 Recovery Disaster, we have a team of experts that can help dry your hardwood floors after a natural disaster. In most situations, damaged wood floors can be fixed. However, it’s best to contact us for a consultation so we can see your specific wet wood floor situation. If you’re currently dealing with wet wood floor issues, we’re here to help. The longer you leave your wood floors, the greater the risk for permanent damage, which will end up costing you a lot more to replace. Call 24-7 Recovery DIsaster so we can restore your hardwood floors back to their pre-water damaged condition. 

How Does The Process Of Wood Floor Drying Work?

There are various tools that we’ll use in order to dry out your wood floors. For wood floor drying we will use our industrial dehumidifiers that extract water from the wood. In addition, we can dry out wood floors using injector drying, which is ideal for wooden surfaces.

Our team members are highly skilled and experienced in order to ensure your wood floors look their best! However, this process and the specific tools we need to use will vary depending on the type of wood floor you have and the extent of damage that has occurred.

What Happens When I Contact 24/7 Recovery Disaster?

If you’re dealing with wet wood floors and want to find a solution, our team is here to help. Generally, we’ll follow these steps to ensure that your floor is taken care of from start to finish.


The first step is to reach out to our team so we can schedule an in-person inspection of your wood floors. As we mentioned above, not every wood floor will be able to be recovered. There are some situations where the wetness is too tremendous, and too much wood damage has occurred. However, in most cases, wood flooring can be restored to look new again!

Once we’ve completed the inspection of your wood floors, our team will provide you with a service plan, so you know exactly what needs to happen to achieve dry wood floors. Once both parties are on the same page, we’ll immediately start our services.

Extract Water

Once we’ve determined that you need wood floor drying services, our team will begin the process by removing the excess moisture from your wood floors as well as applying a cleaning treatment depending on the severity of the case. Typically we’ll use tools such as a water extractor in this situation.

Injection Drying

Depending on the wood floor, we might also use wood injection drying to restore your wood floors back to their original condition. This process is typically used when deep cracks in wood floors let water seep into them and cause damage. However, it can often be applied even if you don’t have any visible signs of wetness or cracking.

Install A Vacuum System

If you want to ensure wood flooring is dry after wood drying our team can install a vacuum system. This system aims to help draw out any moisture that might be sitting underneath the floor to get your moisture levels down to our goal value.

Place a Commercial Dehumidifier

In order to dry wood floors we’ll place a commercial dehumidifier on the floor. A commercial dehumidifier will remove the excess moisture from wood floors and return them to their original condition. This process can take anywhere between a few days and weeks, depending on the severity of wood floor damage and how much water has seeped into your wood surfaces.

Continuously Testing For Moisture Levels

We’ll continuously monitor the environment to ensure that we’re reaching the proper moisture levels and achieving the goals of your wet wood floor services, which is to end up with a dry wood floor.

Once we’ve finished wood floor drying we’ll conduct a final moisture check before removing our commercial dehumidifiers and vacuums. We want to make sure that the wood floors are completely dry before leaving your home or business!

Resealed and Sanding Of Floors

When wood floor drying is completed, we’ll check the condition of your wood floors and see if they need to be resealed or sanded. We don’t want any damage during water restoration efforts causing issues down the line, so it’s important for us to thoroughly inspect everything before completing your project.

How Soon Should I Wait Until Fixing My Wet Wood Floors?

You’ll want to contact our company as soon as you notice that you have wet wood floors. The longer you wait, the more wood damage could occur, which ends up costing more time and money than fixing it right away! That’s why it’s essential to get in touch with our team as soon as possible to figure out a plan for your wet wood floors.

Should I Dry My Wood Floors By Myself?

No wood floor drying should be conducted by the homeowner. This is because wood floors are at risk for damage that can cause long-term issues or even lead to wood rot occurring. So instead, it’s best to leave wood floor drying up to our team of experts, so you know your wood surfaces will be completely dry and safe!
