What should I do if the flooring encounters a “flood” problem in daily use? Today, the editor will answer your questions.
Large area flooding
If you encounter a large area of water on the flooring caused by various reasons, and the amount of water is large, the site should be cleaned in time, and the floor merchant should be notified to contact the after-sales service to remove the floor in the shortest possible time.
Generally speaking, rooms other than bathrooms and kitchens are not waterproof, so it is necessary to clean the water on the ground as soon as possible to avoid soaking in other rooms or downstairs to cause greater losses.
If you encounter local water soaking, you should cut off the water source in time and clean up the water on the ground to observe whether the floor has obvious changes. If there is obvious warping or arching, the floor merchant can be notified to perform partial replacement. The construction personnel will perform partial removal according to the site conditions, and calculate the floor area required for maintenance and related costs.
There are two more points to note here:
- Before the maintenance personnel come to the door, you need to check the inventory and batch of the floor to be replaced, because only the floor with the same color and specification as the original floor can be used, otherwise the maintenance cannot be carried out.
- After removing the soaked floor, it is best to dry the floor for about two weeks while maintaining normal ventilation. After the moisture on the ground dissipates, the installation of the replacement floor can be carried out, which can effectively avoid rework.
