Hardwood Floor Repair and Drying in San Francisco
A flood can turn a property owner’s life completely upside down. Whether it’s from heavy storms, a burst pipe, a plumbing clog or another source, water damage can wreak havoc on hardwood floors.
Depending on the source of the water, any number of contaminants can erode the finish and potentially destroy the wood. This is why quick response is essential to save hardwood that has endured water damage.
An experienced contractor from Allied Restoration Company may be able to save your hardwood floor. In fact, we’ve restored water-damaged floors throughout San Francisco to their original, pristine condition. Our team not only can repair, replace and refinish your hardwood floor, but we can also use dehumidification to prevent mold, mildew and dry-rot.

Identifying and Fixing the Source of the Damage
A house flood can occur from a number of different sources. Inclement weather can cause rainwater to enter a home, and faulty plumbing or a leaky roof can leave serious water damage. Our flood recovery services can stop the source of incoming water and provide quick, effective drying services to reverse the damage and prevent future issues.
Both during and after a flood, the overall level of humidity in the area rises. This not only can damage the hardwood but also can promote mold and mildew growth, which is why drying and dehumidification are critical parts of the water removal process.
Even small floods can leave contaminants that will erode your floors long after the water has dried. This is why a professional assessment is necessary after every flood—not matter how minor the damage may seem.
Hardwood Floor Restoration in the Bay Area
Caring for a hardwood floor requires regular refinishing. This will protect the wood underneath. If you properly maintained your floor before the flood, it may only require basic cleaning and dehumidification. But in more severe cases, the contractor may need to strip or sand the floor before applying a new finish.
If a serious flood has damaged your floor, it may require replacement. Fortunately, our IIRC-certified contractors understand modern restoration techniques, and we may be able to save your floor without replacing the hardwood.
Caring and Maintaining Repaired or Refinished Flooring
Professional hardwood restoration will return your floor’s original luster and beauty. However, you must practice responsible care to maintain its appearance. For at least one week, avoid walking on the floor, and do not place furniture in the room for at least two weeks. Also, be sure to clean spills as soon as possible, and sweep and mop your hardwood floor regularly.
