Flooding in Woodside, PA
Flooding affects homes and businesses in disastrous ways. Using the right Flood Mitigation specialist will help save money on insurance. Mitigation companies such as SERVPRO of Newtown/Yardley have IICRC certifications that are required by the insurance industry. In this article we'll look at different types of flooring.
- Wood Floors - Wood is a porous building material which will hold water. Because flood water is considered Black Water any porous flooring will need to be removed.
- Tile Floors - Tile is not porous and will not need to be removed. The grout may need to be changed if the seal is old. If the water did not penetrate the subfloor the tile can stay.
- Linoleum - Is not porous but doesn't keep as well as tile. If water has intruded under the linoleum then it will need to be removed. Otherwise it is fine after being disinfected.
- Concrete Floor is porous but can be disinfected. Most concrete floors are sealed or painted too which can withstand the water.
