When Wood Gets Wet
The rate at which Wood absorbs water depends on wood type. For example, Balsa wood readily absorbs water followed by Redwood then Pine. Engineered Plywood subflooring is made of several thin layers of wood glued together and when wet the layers will eventually separate causing the flooring to feel spongy. Oak which is considered a very hard wood is one of the least absorbent. The harder the wood is the more success you’ll have at saving it when it gets wet.
High humidity causes condensation which creates wet wood around the home or business. Doorways, Cabinet doors and window casements will swell and warp causing trouble when opening and closing. Wooden floors when saturated with water over time will warp and buckle as they swell with absorbed water. Visible Mold or the odor itself will alert homeowners to the moisture problem before serious structural damage occurs.
