Repair or Replace Mobile Home Floors

Your mobile home’s flooring can show signs of distress over time, especially in high-traffic areas. Some key signs that your flooring needs attention include:

  • Soft spots or spongy feel: This typically suggests water damage beneath the surface, which is common in mobile home floors due to their construction type.
  • Visible mold or mildew: Florida’s humidity is very hard on mobile home floors, especially if there’s inadequate ventilation, damaged vapor barriers, underbelly’s or leaks in the homes walls and floors.
  • Cracks or splits in flooring: These can occur in both wooden and vinyl mobile home floors due to wear and tear, or underlying issues in the structure of the mobile home.
  • Unpleasant odors: A musty smell might indicate rotting wood or the presence of mold underneath the flooring in your mobile home. We always check underneath your mobile home for damage or pest.
  • Minor cracks or surface damage: usually require simple repairs, but more extensive damage or issues stemming from damaged underbelly’s in mobile homes may require floor replacement.

Choosing the Right Flooring Materials for Florida’s Climate

Florida’s humid and often unpredictable weather requires mobile homeowners to choose flooring materials that can withstand these conditions. When selecting materials, consider these choices:

  • Vinyl floors: Vinyl is a popular choice due to its water-resistant properties. It’s also easy to install and relatively affordable. Vinyl floors are the most popular flooring for mobile homes.
  • Laminate flooring: While laminate can mimic the appearance of wood or stone, it’s important to choose a high-quality variety to ensure its longevity in humid conditions in Florida.
  • Tile flooring: Ceramic or porcelain tiles are durable and a great choice for your mobile home and can handle Florida’s climate well. They are also easy to clean and maintain.
  • Engineered Wood: This is a better option than solid hardwood for mobile homes. Its multi-layer construction can handle moisture better than traditional wood.

  • Ensure good ventilation in your mobile home to reduce humidity.
  • Clean spills immediately to prevent water damage.
