24/7 Water Damage Repair & Restoration for Hardwood Floors

When a water disaster strikes, you need someone you can trust to quickly remove the damage and restore your space. As Southern Idaho’s go-to water damage restoration company since 1995, Cleanup & Total Restoration (CTR) has the skills and resources required to make your property look as good as new. Let’s walk through our restoration process and what steps you can take to minimize the damage.

Water Damage Restoration for Wood Floors

\When wood floors sustain water damage, it can compromise their structural integrity, leading to issues like warping, sagging, and rotting. Water damage not only increases the cost of repairs—as wood floors are extremely porous and soak up any water they come in contact with—but also poses health risks. Excess moisture encourages mold and mildew growth, which are harmful to your immune system thanks to allergens and mold spores. Promptly restoring water-damaged wood floors is crucial to maintaining the structural integrity of the flooring, preserving its safety and aesthetic appeal.

Our Water Damage Restoration Process for Hardwood Floors


Before our arrival, it’s best to turn off your water supply. If this isn’t possible, our team will handle it. Once the water is off, we’ll assess the damage and formulate an action plan.


Before we move on to mitigation, your insurance company will send an adjuster to assess the damage and determine how much your claim is worth. We collaborate with all insurance providers to ensure clear and timely communication.

Drying & Dehumidification

Upon receiving approval, we’ll start the drying and dehumidification process in the affected areas, utilizing cutting-edge drying technology. Our technicians are specially trained and IICRC-certified for all water restoration jobs.


Mitigation helps prevent future mold growth and water damage. This step involves an assessment of saturated areas and thorough moisture removal to minimize potential mold growth.


Following the mitigation and drying phases, we’ll start to reconstruct your space. Reconstruction involves repairing and restoring any damaged structures.

Steps to Take After Encountering Water-Damaged Wood Floors

  1. Locate and Shut Off the Water Source

    When dealing with a water leak, it’s important to shut off the supply valve before doing any repair work. In the event of a cracked pipe hidden behind the wall, turn off your property’s main supply valve to prevent further damage. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, we’ll take care of it for you.

  2. Remove the Water

    Depending on the source and volume of the water, you can try removing the water yourself. If the water is contaminated or comes from a toilet or sewer line, let us do the dirty work. The water may contain harmful contaminants that require expert handling.

  3. Dry the Wood Floors

    While awaiting our team’s arrival, use fans to dry the wet floors. Be careful not to set them too high, as excessive airflow can make the damage worse than it already is. Opening windows can also help accelerate the drying process if it isn’t too humid outside.

  4. Relocate Items to a Dry Area

    To prevent damage to other belongings, relocate furniture and valuables to areas in your home that aren’t damaged.

  5. Document the Damage

    Take photos of the water-damaged sections of your home. This documentation can strengthen your insurance claim and help us guide you through the claims process.
