Water Damage And It's Effect On Wood Furniture

One of the most common casualties of water emergencies and floods is furniture. No matter if the water damage results from a broken pipe, natural disaster, or malfunctioning appliance, wooden furniture is especially vulnerable to being destroyed.

Homeowners facing water damage in Agoura Hills typically have wood furniture that they're concerned about getting damaged. Here are four ways that water damage in your home can affect your furniture and what our experts do to prevent it.

Spotting
Spotting refers to fabrics that have water lines or patches -- this is especially common with microfiber covered furniture exposed to water damage. SERVPRO technicians use effective techniques to restore furnishings with water spotting, which means you won't have to pay for replacements.

Color Bleeds
If your furniture is covered in colored fabric or embellishments, it could lead to stains on flooring, walls, and other surfaces of your home after water damage has occurred. Our skilled experts have years of experience cleaning furnishings and surfaces that have been stained, and we have great success restoring items with color bleeding.

Swells
Wood that's been allowed to sit in water will eventually swell up and then crack or break. The joints of wood furniture are particularly fragile and prone to being affected by water damage. When we extract water from your home, we'll use our state of the art equipment to get your wood furniture dried and cleaned up as well.

Mildew
If water isn't extracted from wood furniture, it will inevitably become a host for mildew. SERVPRO technicians are careful to quickly and thoroughly dry furnishings to prevent the unsightly stains and odors that accompany mildew growth. The sooner that you call us after a water emergency has occurred, the more we can do to save your furniture.
