Another Floor Saved!

Black rectangular mats on a wood floor. The wood floor was saved using drying mats.

A broken pipe flooded a four story home in Weehawken NJ, affecting the hardwood floors throughout. The customer was very concerned the flooring would have to be removed as it was original to her historic home.

Upon arrival to the home, SERVPRO of South Jersey City/Bayonne technicians inspected the flooring to see if it could be salvaged. Since the wood floor was not showing an extremely high moisture content, the technicians decided to use the Injecti-dry system in an attempt to save it from removal.

The Injecti-dry system works by utilizing extraction mats placed over wet sections of the wood floor. The mats are connected to a special machine which directs air below the floor in an attempt to dry underneath it quickly. Dehumidifiers are often placed alongside the system to assist in removing as much moisture from the surrounding area as possible.

After the system ran for four days, the mats were removed to revel the wood had dried exceptionally well and would not need to be replaced! The homeowner was so overjoyed to hear we were able to save the flooring. The Injecti-dry system is an innovative tool often used by SERVPRO of South Jersey City/Bayonne to alleviate costly, time-consuming repairs for our customers.
