How to Deal with the Swelling of the Composite Deck Planks?

We know that the floor will swell after being soaked in water, but the floor will not bulge after being wiped clean immediately after the floor is soaked in water. Many people are more curious about whether the bulging of the composite deck planks will disappear? What should I do if the composite deck planks are soaked in water? Let's take a look!

We know that the floor will swell after being soaked in water, but the floor will not bulge after being wiped clean immediately after the floor is soaked in water. Many people are more curious about whether the bulging of the composite deck planks will disappear? What should I do if the composite deck planks are soaked in water? Let's take a look!


Ⅰ. What should you do if the composite deck planks are soaked in water?


  • Press the floor with a strong force and wax it. The small area of the floor joints can be lifted, and heavy objects can be pressed on it. After some time, the wooden floor will return to normal by itself. The floor after heavy pressure can be waxed, and the soaked floor after waxing is as same as the original one.


  • Re-pave it.

  • Change a new floor.


Ⅱ. Reasons for bulging:


The floor will swell when it gets damp, and there is no room for the floor to swell around so it swells up, and the floor will deform over time.


Ⅲ. Will the bulge disappear automatically?


First of all, the bulging of the composite deck planks can indeed be repaired. However, under normal circumstances, the composite floor cannot be completely restored to its original state after it has bulged.


After the composite floor absorbs water, if you want to recover quickly, you should disassemble the floor in time and place it in a ventilated and sunny place to release the sucked water. This method cannot be completely restored because the object does not expand after absorbing water. High-pressure pressing is difficult to restore it to its original state.


If you want the floor to recover like its original, then you have to change another one. To reduce the loss, you can only replace the severely soaked plates.


It is barely possible to restore the original state after the composite floor absorbs water unless there is only a little bulge on the side, but it also takes a long time to recover.
