After a flood, furniture is one thing that hurts the most to lose. Some tips to help you salvage your favorite upholstered and wood furniture in the unfortunate event of a flood. Due to the terrible  disaster that Harvey did on Texas, many people lost mobility when it came to flood damaged furniture. There are two things we need to assess to start the restoration process. First, we need to know the source of the flood, water supply from pipes or anything related to the plumbing system, usually is not very clean at all. Second, is the furniture made of solid wood? Furniture is vulnerable to water as you know, especially when its not made with real wood. If the damage is severe, the solid panels and tops can wrap and break pieces of the furniture. SERVPRO of Katy/Cypress will use equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers to remove water moister from the area. Don’t dry out in sun or you may cause the wood to wrap. Dry furniture as much as possible so the item can receive proper restoration afterwards by SERVPRO professionals.
