Will Pooled Water Permanently Damage My Hardwood Floors?

Wet-mopping isn’t the only way that liquids end up on your hardwood floors. Dishwashers leak, kitchen sinks splash, kids tramp through in rain boots, dogs shake off water, drinks spill. And that’s just the start of it.

When liquids spill in small quantities and remain within the confines of a single floorboard, clean-up should be done soon but it isn’t a cause for alarm. When spilled liquids bridge floorboards, though, it is possible that these liquids can leak through the seams and between the floorboards.

Site-finished wood floors have a lesser chance of damage since sealant has filled the seams. But pre-finished wood flooring, which is being installed in far greater numbers today, does not have filled seams. Seams are usually tight, but not tight enough to hold back pooled water that sits for a long time.
