Restoring Furnishings Affected by Water Damage in Montgomery Properties
SERVPRO Strives to Salvage Personal Belongs from Damage by Water
Fittings, furniture, and other decorative accessories such as carpets and curtains are highly prone to water damage. If the water spreads to the upholstery, it can stain or leave watermarks on the fabric. Mud and silt can also penetrate the fabric and padding if the furniture stays in the water for several hours. This buildup can lead to the growth of mildew both internally and externally. Finished wood surfaces become cloudy, while joints in the frames turn loose. If the disaster is a flood, it can also lead industrial chemicals, pesticides, and sewage into the house.
When faced with water-damaged upholstery, you should contact a professional restoration company immediately. SERVPRO, which is locally owned, has many years of experience in restoring furnishings affected by water damage in Montgomery. Our team is quick and efficient and has the necessary tools to begin the restoration process.
Water damage can affect your upholstery in several ways. Wooden framing, in particular, is susceptible to cracking and swelling. Water can also compromise glue and cause damage to your furniture. In case there are water spots on the fabrics, we may have to wet the entire piece of furniture to avoid water lines. This process can lead to stains on the floors or carpets. Our technicians apply spot removal procedures to get rid of these stains. This step is important to prevent the color bleed from causing a permanent tint. In certain cases, soft materials can be transported to our facility for washing in industrial grade Esporta Machine systems.
SERVPRO also follows IICRC guidelines to carry out mildew control procedures when restoring upholstery affected by water damage. This step involves rapid drying to eliminate the source of water. For this purpose, we use dehumidifiers and air movers to speed up the drying time.
Excessive water can leave water spots on your furniture or cause cracking, swelling, or weakening of the joints. To deal with the water spots, our specialists use specialized wood care products to clean and dry the surface. Water damaged furniture frames are slightly more expensive to repair – sometimes even more costly than replacing them. SERVPRO technicians can assess and advise accordingly.
