The mat machine in this bathroom was placed on a ceramic floor to dry out the subfloor.

If you’ve ever experienced any damage from a water leak, you understand that the faster that the water can be addressed, the better chance that your property can be saved, even ceramic tile or hardwood floors.

How Can My Floors Be Saved?

SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville uses the latest drying equipment to restore your property to preloss condition. One of those pieces of equipment is a mat-drying machine. This system is placed on hardwoods or ceramic tiles, where it draws water out of the flooring. Water travels the path of least resistance, and that can mean grout, seams, and floorboards. If not addressed quickly, the water can cause wood to swell and warp. It can cause tiles to pop and crack. Generally speaking, if extraction can be started within 24 to 36 hours. There is a good chance your flooring can be saved. By saving your floors, this lessens the disruption in your life.
