Water Damage Restoration and Repair Services

Water damage in furniture can be a major headache for business owners. Not only does it cause the furniture to become discolored and brittle, but it can also lead to costly repairs or even replacement of the piece altogether. Fortunately, there are ways that you can restore water-damaged furniture back to its original condition with some basic DIY skills and knowledge.

The first step when restoring water-damaged furniture is identifying what kind of material your piece is made out of so you know how best to approach cleaning and restoration efforts. Upholstered pieces such as couches, chairs, ottomans and other soft furnishings are particularly vulnerable since they absorb moisture more easily than wood or metal surfaces do.


Three popular types of upholstered items people need water damage restoration for include:

1) Leather Furniture – Leather has an inherent ability to repel liquids making it ideal for areas prone to spills like living rooms; however if leather becomes saturated with liquid from flooding or another source then special care must be taken during cleanup in order ensure lasting protection against further deterioration from mold growth or cracking due excessive drying time after the initial exposure event has occurred .

2) Fabric Sofas & Chairs – Fabrics such as cotton blends tend not hold up well when exposed too much moisture so proper steps should always be taken before attempting any type of repair work on these items including using a vacuum cleaner attachment set at low suction power over affected area(s). Additionally consider applying specialized fabric protectors available at most home improvement stores which will help reduce future staining risks associated with everyday wear & tear use patterns typical found within households where children reside (or pets!).

3) Recliners and Rocking Chairs - These traditionally styled seating options often face similar issues related fabric sofa’s/chairs mentioned above however depending upon their composition may require additional attention given their typically complex frames which could have hidden components susceptible long term corrosion due prolonged contact w/liquid sources (i..e., springs). In this situation professional help would likely prove beneficial given potential safety hazards involved working around electrical wiring systems embedded into recliner mechanisms themselves!
