Just after being offered 60 square meters of water damaged 3/4 walnut floor for free. We had bad weather here in Ireland and the sea made its way into the house haven’t seen it yet but more then likely its cupped. Was thinking to stack it for air drying and then get it kiln dried or what do ye think would be the best way to go about saving it, it will probably never be a floor again but it would be a shame for all that walnut to go to fire wood
Thanks Peter

Hi Peter. Not knowing the moisture content, but assuming it’s high or it wouldn’t have been replaced. I’d get it into a kiln as soon as possible, where I could control the redrying. Drying too fast is going to open up the surface and if it checks too deep you won’t have anything left to work with.

Have your say...
