Water Damages to Hardwood Flooring in Des Moines

Water Damages to Hardwood Flooring in Des Moines

This shows how water can damage hardwood flooring.  The hardwood flooring was 3/4" thick, 5" wide, hand-scraped and pre-finished on the top.  Although, it was unfinished on the sides and the bottom of the hardwood flooring.  

The water traveled thru the cracks where the hardwoods met and absorbed into the hardwood flooring and into the sub-floor.  In this situation in order to clean, disinfect, and properly dry the sub-floor we had no other choice but to remove all the hardwood flooring that was located above the saturated sub-floor.

The owner of the home was astonished that the water traveled as far as it did and could cause that much damage.  After the dry-out phase was completed we installed new hardwood flooring and made the disaster "Like it never even happened."

Water Damages to Historical Home in Des Moines

Water Damages to Historical Home in Des Moines

This was the aftermath of a plumbing leak in the upstairs bathroom tub/shower that caused water to travel down into the ceiling of a office below.

Due to the home being historic, the owner of the residence wanted the wood molding/trim to be salvaged to match with the rest of the home.

The crown molding and wall trim was a one of kind that had the original stain from the early 1900's.  In order to remove the wet ceiling/walls and repair it properly we detached the molding delicately and later were able to reset it after the ceiling repairs were.  This particular job put our repair division to the test and in the end the owner of the residence was thrilled with the finished product.
