Baseboard Water Damage Before & After North Richland Hills
Baseboards are the perfect finishing touch to a nicely painted wall. They are barely noticeable until they start to look dingy. Is it just dust or grime that make your white baseboards look ugly, or is it something else?
If you’ve done all you can to clean your baseboards and they still appear abnormal, you might be dealing with a water damage problem that has ruined your baseboards.
Baseboards are made from solid wood, and sometimes MDF. Moderate damage to the wood results in water stains, peeling paint, mold growth, or slight bowing. These issues could potentially make the baseboards appear dirty. Swelling and bending out of shape are signs of more severe damage.
When you have a curved wall like this one, repairing the baseboard isn’t as simple as going to the hardware store and tacking on a new cut of lumber. You probably need a bit of experience to know how to fit a baseboard to this shape.
Even if you were to put new baseboard material onto the wall, unless you resolve the water damage issue, the new baseboard ends up damaged as well.
To make sure that the damaged baseboard is restored, and to address the water damage issue so that it doesn’t happen again, SERVPRO of North Richland Hills has teams trained to do both.
Our water damage restoration team locates the cause of the water damage so it can be addressed while our building services team replaces whatever could not be salvaged by us. This includes restoring the damaged baseboard and any other material that was damaged by water.
