How To Prevent A Wood Floor From Water Damage
If your dishwasher is leaking or your sink overflowed, the unruly water isn't only inconvenient, it can damage wood flooring as well. If you wait too long to remove the excess water, your wood floors may warp and become damaged. It will take a lot less effort and money to clean the mess up quickly rather than replace warped floorboards. After removing the water, you will also need to disinfect the flooring, as wood is a natural material that is vulnerable to mold and bacteria growth, especially if you live in a warm, humid climate.
