Great Tips on Flood Restoration of Damaged Wooden Furniture


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Health
Flooding can occur for many different reasons, but it may still be possible to rescue your furniture. If flooding happens as a result of a severe storm or hurricane, you may even get some warning ahead of time to secure your furniture to prevent any damage in the first place. Since most of the time it is not possible to do so usually due unsafe condition.

Your first priority after flood damage is to safely salvage as much furniture as possible. Kitchen units and pine furniture are prone to absorbing water, but are often salvageable when they dry out. When doing this, be aware that flood water may have been contaminated. Follow flood contamination precautions and make sure that you follow good hygiene practice after touching anything affected by floodwater.

When it is safe to do so, inspect your furniture and separate what is salvageable from what cannot be saved. Be aware that water damage may not be restricted to furniture that has been sitting in water. Excessive moisture in the atmosphere can also cause damage.

It is best to survey and evaluate the damage as quickly as possible as time is of the essence. Bring a camera along to photograph everything, because you will need to report that for insurance.

To determine whether a piece of furniture is worth saving you have to look at the extent of damage. Take into account the cost of the item in relation to the cost of restoration. Finally, you have to also take into account its sentimental value to you. You may want to keep and repair a family heirloom despite damage.

Set aside furniture that is beyond repair for evaluation for insurance claims. Upholstered furniture that has been sitting in water for too long may be hard to salvage as water can encourage the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, all of which which can have a long term bad effect on your health. Wood furniture that has become warped may also be difficult to save.

Move furniture to a dry area to facilitate drying. If it is too heavy to move place aluminum foil or wood blocks under the legs to keep it away from a damp carpet. Upholstered Furniture

If there was only slight flooding and the furniture did not sit in water for too long, begin by separating upholstery fabrics and other colored items to prevent or stop any chance of color bleeding. It should be dried completely to prevent mold and mildew from forming which happens if it is more than 20% wet.

Unfortunately, by its very nature, it is easy for upholstered furniture to absorb contaminants from flood waters. Again, before investing a lot of money in it get a cost estimate to evaluate if it is worth saving. Usually, flood-soaked upholstered furniture should be thrown away unless it is an antique or very valuable.

If you do decide to keep your upholstered furniture owing to its high worth, it is best to have it cleaned only by a professional. The cleaning may involve stripping it down to its frame. Springs and webbing may have to be replaced depending on the extent of water damage.
