Risks of Standing Water on Vinyl Floors in Fort Myers Shores Homes

Substantial water loss incidents that occur in your Fort Myers Shores home can leave you contending with several effects simultaneously. While you might not know where to begin, addressing the standing water on your floors must take priority. This condition can continually damage exposed materials, weakening and compromising their ability to withstand weight demands and function properly. Certain flooring materials are more susceptible than others, such as vinyl faux wood planks.

Vinyl flooring options are often an affordable option for those renovating their Fort Myers Shores homes, but without fast water removal services during emergencies, this material can become quickly compromised. Our SERVPRO professionals have a 24-hour response to emergencies, offering the full measure of our industry-leading equipment to quickly extract and dry out damaged materials and structural elements within your house.

This flooring material is often a tongue and groove installation, which only leaves small seams between the planks. With standing water, however, moisture and direct water penetration can infiltrate these vulnerabilities to get beneath the flooring quickly. Not only can this saturate the subflooring over a brief period, but it also can provide universal exposure of each affected flooring plank with saturation happening both above and below it.

The SERVPRO technicians dispatched to your home understand the threat of warping and distortion that can begin in as little as 24 hours with saturated vinyl flooring. We can bring in our portable sump pumps and gas-powered trash pumps to promote fast extraction in every affected space. Once the excess gets removed, our technicians can focus on using our air movers, dehumidifiers, and installing the injecti-dry system and drying mats to penetrate beneath the planks and steadily draw out moisture.

While you have several materials likely affected by the substantial water removal incident, protecting your flooring is possible with the right response and equipment. Our SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda rapid response team is available 24/7 to help you make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (941) 575-5910.
