Storm Damage to a Gymnasium Floor in Miami
The standing water and debris remained on the hardwood gymnasium floor long enough for seepage to occur. The water penetrated the varnished finish of the planks at the joints and wetted the underlying plywood sheathing. Our fast water removal salvaged the bulk of the flooring though several areas needed disassembling for finalized drying. Our water damage restoration team carefully exposed the significantly damaged areas as shown in the second photo. We verified the dryness with our moisture meters and infrared cameras before reinstallation of the flooring planks was done. This documentation of the water and moisture removal was also critical for insurance purposes. Rely on SERVPRO of South Miami 24/7 for all water emergencies.
