We Have The Most Effective Techniques To Restore Your Pensacola Home
Water Damage In Pensacola Could Cause Problems With Your Furnishings
One day everything could be fine at your Pensacola residence, then you wake up the next day to find that your refrigerator's ice machine has malfunctioned and spilled water all over your house. When leaks go unnoticed for a long time, moisture can quickly spread and cause water damage inside your kitchen and other rooms next to it, like your living room or dining area. Once carpets get saturated, your furniture can get negatively affected.
Whenever we work towards restoring water damage inside your Pensacola home, our SERVPRO team starts by testing for moisture and looking for visible issues. Before we start any restoration procedures, we test items in the affected room like your drywall and upholstered furniture. Once we determine exactly what got wet, we can then formulate the best plan to quickly remove moisture from your contents and building materials.
If our SERVPRO technicians find that furniture like your couch or recliner chair got wet, we can take steps to extract and dry out the items to prevent problems from occurring. Moisture most often causes the following four problems with any of your upholstered furniture items such as your couch.
Most couches and other upholstered furniture are made up of wooden frames that can swell when they get wet. Once parts of the frame on your furniture swells joints can weaken, which can affect your furniture's structural integrity.
2. Water Spotting
Some materials can get stained by water damage and show visible water spots. In some cases, we can remove these by wetting the entire piece of furniture.
3. Color Bleeding
Dust covers on furniture can sometimes bleed colors when wet and cause discoloration on other parts of the furniture or your floor. Metal buttons can also rust and cause rust staining on fabrics.
4. Mildew Growth
Since most furniture is made with organic substances like wood, mold and mildew can grow if the item is not dried out quickly.
Many of our techniques can help reduce problems that could ruin your furniture. If your couch ever gets wet after a water leak, call SERVPRO of West Pensacola at (850) 469-1160 24/7. Once we are finished, we will restore your home to the way it was before the leak occurred and make it seem, "Like it never even happened."
