Your hardwood floors add value and character to your home. But, in the event of a flood, saving this feature requires fast and decisive action. Information from the EPA says that mold can begin growing in as little as 48 hours after a flood. Whether you experience a burst pipe or a flood from excessive rainfall, we can begin removing water immediately to save your hardwood floors.


Since 1988, Power Dry has been drying hardwood floors in Kansas City. Our careful step by step process ensures that all water is removed and damage to your home is minimized. Our multi-step process:

[rev_slider alias="hardwood-drying"]

Step 1:
Locate and mark wet areas.

You can’t always see moisture that may be damaging your floors. We use moisture detection equipment to find water that may be hiding under the surface. Our crew marks the areas where water needs to be removed using low-tack, non-damaging labels.

Step 2:
Install and secure drying mats and equipment.

We put down drying mats and then secure them to get a tight seal. This step allows us to do a thorough and complete drying job. Removing all water is necessary to prevent mold or mildew from invading and damaging your property.

Step 3:
Extract excess water.

Our powerful extraction equipment pulls all excess water out of your floors. If water is left behind, it can cause flooring to warp or buckle, so we ensure that we use the most efficient equipment to get all water out.

Step 4:
Drying in progress.

We use powerful blowers to evaporate the rest of the water that may be lurking in your floor.
When we are finished, we test again to ensure that all water has been removed and that your floors are completely dry. By acting quickly and doing a thorough job, we can save your flooring and prevent costly replacements.

Hardwood Floor Drying FAQs

How Do I Know When the Wood Is Dry?

An expert like Power Dry can check your wood flooring for water molecules with a moisture testing meter. Keep in mind, completely drying wood flooring can take up to three weeks! 
There may also be abnormal amounts of moisture and humidity in the area due to water damage. Leaving fans and dehumidifiers on until the moisture test shows no traces of water is essential. 
Keep in mind: saturated wood swells. If you prematurely sand and refinish the wood before it is completely dry, planks will shrink as they dry, messing up the work.

Should I Worry About Mold?

Excessive water damage is always a cause of concern. However, if you hire a reputable water damage restoration company to professionally dry your property, you’ll minimize the risk of mold developing.
