Wood & Water Don’t Mix!UCLA Pauley Pavilion Flooded Gym Floor

Floods and natural disasters can wreak havoc on wood floors, and as we all know, water is the mortal enemy of wood. And the longer water sits on the hardwood floor, the more extensive the damage will likely be. Depending on the extent of the damage and response time, it is possible that a hardwood gymnasium floor can be re-sanded and refinished without issue. Immediately following a disaster, an authorized Robbins sports flooring contractor should be contacted to assess the damage. The gymnasium will then be dried out in an attempt to restore moisture levels in the wooden components to normal. This will be determined through moisture testing. At this time, they will also determine if the floor should be dried out further, or the next steps for refinishing or replacing the floor.

What to do when your gym floor is damaged:

  1. If applicable, locate the water source and shut it off immediately.UCLA Pauley Pavilion Flooded Gym- New Basketball Floor
  2. Use a shop-vac to remove all standing water.
  3. Call your local Robbins dealer. To locate a dealer in your area, visit the Locate a Dealer page.
  4. Remove wall base.
  5. Turn the heat on in the building and increase airflow movement in the room using circulating fans.
  6. Contact your insurance agent. Then contact Robbins at 1-800-543-1913 to speak with a technical services expert.

Alternative Floor Solutions

While there is no comparison to a high quality hardwood gymnasium floor, synthetic flooring is a popular alternative for facilities at a higher risk for water damage. Facilities located in “Tornado Alley” or along the Gulf Coast are good candidates for Robbins Pulastic® synthetic flooring, a padded poured-in-place polyurethane floor. These multi-purpose floors are extremely durable and in many cases, after flooding, can be quickly mopped, repaired, & are then good to go again.
