Can we Save Antique Furniture?
In the event ofwater damage to your home, it is natural to worry about your beloved antique sofa. After all, you cannot just go to the nearest furniture store and buy another. Do not despair – SERVPRO of North west Ontario technicians can use various techniques to save your favorite seat from floodwaters.
Floodwater can cause several problems:
- Wood frames can swell and even crack as they absorb water – sofas may be especially vulnerable to this, because of the way their frames join together
- Delicate upholstery can bleed color or become blotchy
- Mold can grow on the wooden surfaces, or inside cushions and seats
It is essential to deal with flood damage immediately. If you leave it, there is more opportunity for mold to grow in and on your sofa, water stains can settle in more deeply, and cracking and swelling can worsen.
Our technicians know that antique wood can warp under the strain of floodwater – and they also understand that rapid drying is dangerous. If we dry your couch too quickly, it could be at greater risk of damage, we take care of your antiques while we are drying your home to leave it "Like it never even happened."
