Buckling Flooring Call SERVPRO of Tarzana and Reseda today at 818-881-363

Floor buckling is the most extreme reaction to moisture in a hardwood floor. Buckling occurs when the wood flooring pulls up from the subfloor, lifting up to several inches in one or more places. Floors buckling is not a common occurrence. 

Spot repair and replacement may be possible if caught early. Once the standing water is removed, several boards can be taken up from the floor so that the air can circulate across and below the floor. When the hardwood flooring reaches a stable moisture level, repairs can usually be made.
