Maple sports floors are extremely affected by both moisture intrusion and water damage. Gym floors that experience these issues result in major set backs, and extensive repair is often needed. Make sure you are inspecting your floor often to catch problems before they end up ruining your entire gym!
Most cases of water damage, or moisture infiltration, are due to humidity. Monitoring building humidity is crucial to maintaining a maple sports gym floor.
Humidity variability in excess of 15 degrees can often cause serious problems, such as buckling or cracking. Too much humidity in the room and the maple wood will expand. This causes the gym floor to push out until it buckles. Not enough humidity in the room and the gym floor will tighten and crack.
Other water damage, or moisture infiltration issues, that can occur are:
– Water fountain spills.
– Leaking drains.
– Unsealed outside thresholds.
– Roof leaks.
– Burst pipes.
– Water leaking through points of entry.
– Outside influences.
– Water spills.
– Water infiltration under outside Gym doors.
