Furniture Water Damage Clean Up
Did your furniture suffer from water damage?
The 2 questions to ask yourself with furniture water damage is ……
1. How long was it affected by the water?
2. What type of furniture is it? We will help you determine if your furniture can be salvaged.
We will help you evaluate which furniture items can be saved and which ones cannot. If the water damage was from contaminated water then most likely the furniture cannot be salvageable. If the water damage was from a fresh source, then deciding if your furniture can be saved will be a question of how badly the water intruded, for how long it was on it and what the furniture is made of. Deciding
which furniture to save may be a more personal issue, especially if you have antiques and other pieces with sentimental value. Keep in mind that you don't need to repair all pieces of salvageable furniture immediately. You can clean, dry, and store them in a warm, well-ventilated place until you have time to deal with them.
Solid wood furniture can usually be restored, unless damage is severe. It may need to be cleaned, dried, and re-glued. Wood veneered furniture is usually not worth the cost and effort of repair, unless it is very valuable. Upholstered furniture soaks up floodwaters and may be need to be cleaned or repaired.
