Can wooden floors be restored after buckling?
Water damage can cause permanent damage if not mitigated properly and on time. Buckled floors are a good example of why prompt mitigation makes the difference between having to restore or replace. The reason behind wooden floors buckling after coming in contact with moisture or water is that wood expands gradually after contact with water or moisture for an extended period of time. Once wooden floors have buckled they are deemed non-salvageable and have to subsequently be replaced.
Another factor that deems post-flooded wooden floors non-salvageable is the category of water damage, if the water is considered contaminated or a category 3 water loss, it has to be replaced. Unfortunately, in that scenario, the floors cannot be returned to their prior flood conditions.
