It is always possible for severe weather to cause flooding. When it comes to the destructive effects of water damage, hardwood floors are especially vulnerable. If water is left to remain on a surface for an extended period of time, it will absorb the moisture and carry it to the deeper layers of that surface. So your floor needs prompt action to avoid further damage.

In the event of a leak, flood, or other water-related occurrences, it is essential to inspect the flooring in the surrounding areas. Hardwood flooring is especially vulnerable to water damage. You can probably tell if the floor was damaged just by looking at it. Signs of floor water damage include abnormalities. Some specific flooring issues to keep an eye out for are listed below.
Buckling: When flooring buckles, it separates from the subflooring below it. There's a chance your floor will peel up or come apart at the joints.
Cupping: The planks on your floor may curl upward when it absorbs water, creating a little dip in the plank's center.
Crowning: Drying out flooring can cause warping underneath. Due to moisture evaporation, boards become rounded in shape, becoming higher in the center and lower at the ends.
Discoloration: Mold and mildew can cause discoloration or other visual changes. Check for the presence of growth in any new discoloration or shadows.
Odor: Mold and mildew in the flooring or subflooring could cause an unusual odor.
Warping: Bubbles, peeling, or cracking that don't fit the regular pattern on the floor could be a sign of deterioration.
