Hardwood flooring: How to avoid moisture damage


Choosing wood floors in Bellefontaine, OH, means considering all the necessary elements that go along with the flooring type. One of these is moisture remediation and avoiding the damage that can come with it.

Moisture can cause serious issues with your hardwood, so this is a vital topic to familiarize yourself with before you buy. Here are some steps to ensure your hardwood floors will never take on moisture damage.

The most important tips


First, consider subfloor moisture issues, which may require a moisture barrier for the best results. Subfloor issues can be extensive, even in engineered wood flooring, so take time to speak with your flooring specialist about the point if you regularly worry about it.

Second, be sure to prevent spills as often as possible and have a plan for when they happen. If you catch the spill or issue early enough, you should be able to clean it up without lasting ramifications to your flooring.

Finally, secure professional installation services as soon as you buy your hardwood flooring. These service providers can uncover moisture issues, then give you the options available to you.

If you have more hardwood flooring questions about these or any service, spend some time with a flooring expert while you’re here. We’ll make sure you get everything you need before you leave.
