Because wood wicks water, as soon as you create a dry spot, the dry spot will start to pull in moisture from the wet wood around it. This greatly increases the rate of drying the floor over not moving the fans around. Many hardwood floors are installed on a ”bed” that creates an air gap under the wood slats. If this is the case for your floors, try to create a funnel with a piece of plastic or canvas and force air underneath the floors along any cracks you can find. Use duct tape to tape the funnel to the fan, and an office stapler to staple it over the crack you want to dry out. Take your time, failure to let the floors dry completely out will set up conditions for mold to grow.
There are so many things that we should not do with our floorings. The primary thing to consider is not to use ammonia, bleach, regular floor cleaner, dusting products. Also, avoid using wax on a floor that has a glossy finish or urethane. We should never wash our flooring we can use a damp mop to clean but not with a mop that is dripping with water. In our effort to maintain the proper condition of our flooring, there are also protective and repair measure that we must follow. For example if there are burn marks in the hardwood, we can lightly sand the affected part, use a damp cloth to remove the grit and then we can refinish them. Scratches and gouges can be concealed using wood putty. We should let the wood putty dry and then we can sand them and refinish.
