How to get rid of water damaged wood furniture
You may be wondering what to do with damaged furniture after a flood. To decide which pieces of furniture may still be salvageable, consider the following:
- Is the furniture valuable?
- What is the extent of the damage?
- How much will it cost to restore the furniture?
Water damaged wood may be stained, cracked, or swollen after a flood. Furthermore, the extent of damage depends on how long the furniture has been exposed to water. If you wish to try and salvage the furniture, try the following steps as soon as you can:
- Remove debris: Rinse off any pieces of debris on the furniture’s surface
- Dry the furniture thoroughly: If you can, remove the back of the furniture piece to allow for air to get in and dry the areas inside. If the furniture dries out too quickly, the wood may shrink or crack. It is best to not force anything open and allow enough drying time. Fans and dehumidifiers will help speed the process up, so contact your local restoration company and see if they have any on hand.
- Avoid direct sunlight: Drying wooden furniture in direct sunlight should be avoided, as it can cause damage.
Remember, the drying process can take weeks to finish. Unfortunately, damaged wooden furniture often requires professional expertise to restore. Contact a restoration expert or flood cleanup service to see what they suggest. If the furniture is unsalvageable, it may be best to call a junk removal company such as 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.
