What Are Some Different Types of Gym Floor Damage?
The great flood of 2010 in Nashville did damage to thousands of homes, schools and churches. Water damage on gym floors of this magnitude don’t come around often, but when they do, the damage is massive. One common type of damage to gym floors is water damage. Water damage can happen when pipes burst in a nearby restroom or shower facility. If exposure to water is remedied quickly, it can often minimize the damage. A simple solution like bringing in large fans to dry it out may be all that’s needed. In severe cases of water damage, sometimes it is necessary to bring in industrial dehumidifiers like the one pictured here. These units are designed to remove moisture on the wood and under the wood.
The most common gym floor repair performed is on deep scratches and gouges. These gouges and scratches come from heavy chairs, equipment, weight room equipment and other things coming in direct contact with the wooden gym floors. Depending on how big the damaged area is, the repair can be completed within a few hours. When the damage is more widespread, sometimes the best thing that can be done on your gym floors is to have them refinished. When all you need is to resurface your gym floor, a screen and recoat service is likely what you need.
