Water Damage? Upholstery and Carpet Drying in Easthampton--Call SERVPRO

With Finesse, Training, and Equipment SERVPRO Technicians Clean Your Water Damaged Belongings

Water damage can lead to several effects on your property, and there is need to act quickly to prevent further damage and restore as many items as you can. For instance, when your upholstery comes into contact with the moisture, you should expect some swelling, water spotting, color bleeding as well as potential mold growth. Each problem requires a discrete solution, and since this is one of the most stressing moments, you need to work with a professional in the restoration industry. Here, we are going to cover some of the common moisture effects that take place after a water event in Easthampton.
 
When the upholstery in your Easthampton home becomes exposed to water for a long duration of time, the wood absorbs the water and swells. It can also crack if you fail to take quick preventive measures. As time goes by, the framing joints can also weaken, the glues break down, and water spots may appear on the fabrics. When attending to such situations, our SERVPRO technicians may decide to wet the entire furniture to prevent water lines and give uniformity.
 
Wetness can cause the dust covers to bleed and should they sag; then it means they might stain the floors or carpets. Rust may also appear on the metallic backing on upholstered buttons and zippers. There is also the possibility of the wooden furniture legs staining your carpets. If you fail to work with a service provider like SERVPRO before the items with such stains dry, then the chances of removing the stains are minimal. Never panic and start rubbing the upholstery fabric or carpet since that may lead to irreparable fiber distortion and staining.
 
When our SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians are restoring your property, we pretest our spot removing procedures within an inconspicuous area to be sure of their efficiency and safety. By performing a close inspection, we can identify possible fabrics appearance changes and dye transfer. We also know that water-based stains dissolve readily in water-based solutions and a solvent solution may be necessary when addressing oil-based spills. We have spray bottles filled with SERVPRO formulated agents, and we know how to use them.
 
When drying your upholstered furniture, we put in place dehumidifiers and air movers. These devices help in lessening the drying time. Since the presence of moisture creates favorable conditions for mold growth, we remove the water source to prevent such eventualities.
