A few tips . . .
When it comes to drying wood floors, patience and persistence pays off. A little patience can make all the difference between saving a wood floor and having to demolish it. When solid hardwood flooring is exposed to water, only the unfinished underside will absorb water. As the wood absorbs moisture, the bottom expands more than the finish-protected top, causing cupping. When this cupping appears during the drying process, it may cause some concern for the property owner. Be patient. The cupping will go away.
If your drying system is properly set up, regular monitoring will show that the moisture content (MC) is trending downward. Continue drying until the MC reaches the drying goal (or dry standard) and the cupping is gone. Next clean the floor, and for an added touch, apply a coat of polyurethane. In most cases, you won't even need to do a prep sanding.
- You can restore hardwood flooring when it is exposed to Category 1 water.
- The longer the floor is wet, the longer it will take to dry.
- Be patient! The drying process is done when both the MC returns to normal and the floor lays flat.
