Due to heavy rainfall in recent times, cities in the south are prone to flooding during rainy seasons.
If a family’s wooden floor becomes waterlogged, it can no longer be used. To remove the moisture from their wood floors, how should they proceed?
Laminate flooring soak water
Laminate flooring is more water-resistant than other types of wood flooring.
If only a short period of soaking, as long as the water as soon as possible to drain, and then remove the skirting conducive to seepage into the floor below the moisture to evaporate. About half a month or so can be completely dry, which generally will not affect the normal use of the floor.
If the laminate flooring factory time in the soaking water, we drained the water and found that the laminate flooring has appeared swelling deformation, then it can only be replaced to deal with. Deformation of laminate flooring is not repairable.
Solid wood flooring soaking water
Solid wood flooring is different from laminate flooring, made of natural wood, it is easy to absorb moisture and deformation.
Once the solid wood flooring soak then there will inevitably be a large area of deformation, in this case you need to drain the water after the solid wood flooring all warped. Then the front and back of the moisture wipe dry, after processing to well stacked, placed in a ventilated place to wait for natural drying.
After natural drying most of the solid wood flooring can be restored to normal, and then re-laying can be used. A small number of solid wood flooring may be discolored because of soaking, then we can also be refurbished and then paved for use.
Solid wood laminate flooring soaking water
Solid wood laminate flooring is a combination of the stability and durability of solid wood with the ease-of-maintenance, affordability, and fire resistance characteristic to all laminate floors.
Essentially is also made of natural logs, so and solid wood flooring as easy to absorb moisture and deformation.
In both cases, solid wood laminate flooring and solid wood flooring soak up water during the treatment process in a similar way.
Both the front and back of the moisture wipe dry, after processing to the well stacked placement, placed in a ventilated place to wait for natural shade dry.
Of course, it is worth noting that because the solid wood laminate flooring is glued together, so it is possible that the problem of decoupling because of water soaking, in this case, you can only choose to replace it.
