Hardwood Doesn't Like Water
Water and Hardwood - Not Friendly Companions
Hardwood floors are beautiful. They make any room stand out and grab your attention. But, when a leaky supply line adds a steady amount of water to those floors, it can be disastrous.
If the water is removed immediately and not allowed to set on the flooring or soak through to the subfloor, things should be okay. With proper extraction and drying, these floors should be good to go. And even if the water has found its way to the subfloor, with the proper equipment such as drying mats, specifically made for wooden floors, everything should be fine.
But, in the case water has gone undetected for an extended period of time, things get a lot worse. The wooden planks begin to warp, buckle and cup. At this point, there is nothing that can be done to save the floor. It will need to be replaced.
