Water Damage Restoration in Northern California

Mold growth underneath panels of laminate flooring. This water loss in Elk Grove shows the damage and mold that was growing under laminate flooring from a water loss.

 

Floating floors, usually referred to as Laminate Flooring are great looking, low cost flooring solutions. However, it is very important if you have a water loss that you have a professional inspect these floors for moisture with professional equipment.

Floating floors have a foam or plastic under-layment. When water hits these floors they almost always will get under the floorboards, and get trapped in-between the flooring and the under-layment. There it can sit for a long time and slowly get worse and worse without you even knowing about it.

To the normal eye it will appear as if the floor is completely normal and dry, but only professional moisture meters can truly tell you if there is hidden moisture that needs to be taken care of. If the issue is not addressed, Mold can literally begin to grow right under your feet. 

If your laminate floors have been affected by water damage, give the pros a call at 916-285-7257! We would be happy to check it out for you.
