How Flood Damage Can Hurt Furniture in Los Angeles Homes

12/31/2017 (Permalink)

Flooding from a storm can wreak havoc on your priceless home and its contents. Contact our trained SERVPRO technicians to restore the property.

Knowledgeable Technicians Can Help Restore Rather Than Replace Your Unique Property

Some of the costliest losses for many homes in Los Angeles after flood damage can come from furniture, as many homes in the area are well-decorated with expensive and fragile furniture sets. Floods care little for the contents of your house and can cause severe damage to anything in their path. Furniture is no exception. Here are a few ways that your furniture could fall victim to flood damage.

Staining
 
One of the most common signs of flood damage to Los Angeles homes is often the presence of staining on walls, floors, and furniture around the home. Floods that enter the home from the outside often carry with them dirt, mud, and debris that can stain any surfaces in your home they come across. Some furniture sets may be resistant to the effects of staining, such as objects with metal legs or hard bases. However, others may require lengthy dry cleaning regimens hand-applied by SERVPRO technicians to entirely clean.
 
Physical Damage
 
Larger pieces of debris in the flood may cause some physical damage to your furniture as they crush, bend, tear, and scratch all sides of your belongings. Fabrics and leather are highly liable to rip open in a flood, and materials of all types are vulnerable to other forms of physical damage. We can repair most of these effects but may have to relegate more delicate tasks to local specialists.

Mold Growth
 
If you do not respond quickly to flood damage in your home, you may be liable to develop mold damage across the home. Furniture often presents a prime target for mold and other fungi, as furniture pieces commonly contain adequate food sources and environmental conditions for growth. Calling SERVPRO early on makes sure that your home can dry out quickly and avoid damage from fungi if possible.
