What if I know my wood floors are beyond saving?

Occasionally, when water has saturated hardwood floors for too long, the water permeates the pores of the wood, causing the wood to swell, buckle and warp beyond salvage through restoration.

When this happens, the wood structure will need to be removed in order to be replaced.  Chavez Restoration technicians are experienced and skilled at dismantling hardwood flooring with minimal risk to the surrounding structures.
