Read on to learn more about how to reduce moisture with hardwood flooring. 

What’s the problem with moisture on wood floors?

Moisture causes problems for hardwood flooring by forcing the material to expand or contract, which leads to warping, splitting, and other imperfections. With enough moisture, the flooring could become so damaged that total replacement is necessary to correct the problems.

Sometimes, the solution for the moisture is to avoid installing hardwood floors in areas where dampness, humidity, and spills are often a problem. Some products handle these situations better than others, and we can discuss them while you're here browsing our inventory.

In situations where dampness is an occasional problem, there are other ways to handle it. The first is to use a dehumidifier, which removes moisture from the air and the hardwood flooring.

If you've experienced flood conditions for any reason, you may need professional remediation. Contact us to learn more about these options and how we can handle your hardwood flooring issues.
