We at Royal restoration can help restore your water damaged furniture. Working with Royal Restoration can help you save many of your furniture pieces from being completely damaged and we can help you avoid flood damage in the future.
Preventing Damage In The First Place
While some accidents are unavoidable, preventing water damage is the best way to protect sentimental items in your home. If you have time to prepare and know that a storm is coming, move your furniture to a safe place away from where water can damage it.
Having a sump pump or some way to remove rising water from your home can stop water damaged furniture. Flooding or bursting pipes can cause damage to more than just furniture, it can damage insulation, foundation, and other essential items. If water has entered your home and caused damage, all hope is not lost. There are ways to dry out water and clean furniture pieces.
The biggest thing to watch for is damaged upholstered furniture. Since upholstery is very porous and can become extremely soggy. This often means that you will need to discard the furniture altogether as it is really hard to remove properly and prevent mold growth.
If a piece has an emotional value then you should seek the help of professional restoration experts that can replace the hardware inside the furniture and help dry the upholstery fully. These services can be very expensive and may not be worth paying for just to lose that piece of furniture anyway.
The best way to dry out water damaged furniture is to place it in the sun. Sunlight not only carries heat that can dry out the water, but it also has properties that can kill bacteria. Taking the furniture apart and removing fixtures can help it dry faster. Place each piece out in the sunlight and space them apart from each other.
Know The Source Of The Water
Knowing the source of where the water came from can help you treat your furniture. If the water is white water from supply pipes, this is water you usually drink and can be soaked up without leaving behind bacteria. Gray water likely is filled with chemicals and other particles that could come from dishwater or washing machine. Black water is usually found in sewage pipes or from natural flood waters, this is highly contaminated with dirt, bacteria, and even parasites. Depending on what type of water you are working with, will depend on the treatment method that needs to be used for your water damaged furniture.
