Water Damage But what about my hardwoods? Rescue mats used to dry out hardwood floors.

Your home is probably the biggest investment you will ever make, that is why we will do everything in our power to save and restore your home to pre- loss condition. That includes your hardwood floors. One of the most valuable pieces of equipment in our company is our rescue mat system. They allow us to remove moisture from hardwoods without having to preform demolition. The mats slowly extract water and moisture from the hardwoods and underneath. Sometimes floors will still need to be sanded and refinished but often once the rescue mats have dried the floors you would never be able to tell there was a loss at all that affected them.

If your home or office is affected by a water damage from a pipe break or sprinkler leak make sure to call SERVPRO of Gresham so that our team of trained and experienced technicians can help restore your property and we can show you first hand how we make it “Like it never even happened."
