If your home has undergone a water intrusion due to something like a burst pipe, it can quickly spread throughout your Glendale home. This situation can mean damage to belonging that are precious to you.

Is it Possible to Restore Wood Furniture with Water Damage?

As a company that strives to provide quality water restoration in Glendale, we see all kinds of water-damaged items. These can range from clothing to furniture. Many of these items are things such as armoires, dressers, and coffee tables. When wood or wood composition, furniture gets exposed to water, several problems can arise. These include:

  • Water spots on the finish
  • Swelling and cracking
  • Weakening of the joints

Depending on the extent of the damage, restoration may be possible. Specialized wood care products can remove water spots in some instances. Having the item refinished is an option that is not always as cost-effective as replacing the item. In the case of a family heirloom, you may wish to go that route. Our crew will always discuss your options and costs involved before moving forward with any restoration project.

Wood Composition Furniture

While a family heirloom is not going to be made of particleboard, you may still have furniture that is damaged. Particleboard is covered with laminate and doesn’t hold up well when it comes in contact with water. The main problem is the laminate resists water, but the particleboard side absorbs a lot of water. This results in warping. Typically these items are easier to replace than to repair.

Don’t assume your heirlooms are lost if you experience any water loss in your home. Contact SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale at (323) 255 - 1000 for expert water restoration service.
