Can SERVPRO Complete Water Damage Repair to my Ceramic Tile Floor in Randolph?

Many consumers consider ceramic tile floors impervious to water damage in their Randolph homes. Ceramic tiles are not porous, and the grout between the tiles used to fill the joints is usually waterproofed when the floor is installed. Unfortunately, our homes shift over time, or there is damage to the grout, and small cracks in the grout or even the tiles cause the tile to be vulnerable to water damage.

SERVPRO provides water damage repairs to homeowners in Randolph and surrounding areas. Our services include water cleanup, drying after a water leak, and restoring walls and flooring materials, including ceramic tiles, concrete, resilient tiles, and hardwood floors.

When ceramic tiles are on the floor, water can penetrate cracks in the grout or tiles, which the subfloor will absorb. The subfloor may swell and cause the ceramic tiles to come loose at the joints, or the ceramic tile may also crack, allowing more water to penetrate the floor.

Before reinstalling the tiles, SERVPRO dries the subfloor. If access to the subfloor can be arranged from the bottom, it can be dried before we reinstall the ceramic tiles. Another approach is to remove the tile and drill holes through the ceramic tile cement used to hold the tile in place. We ensure the floor is dried in this manner before replacing the tiles and re-grouting between the tiles. SERVPRO uses non-penetrating moisture meters to check for moisture in the subfloor before replacing the tile.

  • Water Clean up
