Water Removal Services for Your Durham Home

One of the most destructive forces on earth, water can create much damage in Durham when a pipe bursts in your home. The real damage happens, however, when the water collects and is left to sit. Flooring materials begin to weather and warp, and drywall and pain get gummy and start to dissolve. Wood begins rotting, and mildew and mold growths can begin growing within a couple of days. Getting the water removed right away is your first concern.

Therefore, when you need water removal services in Durham, you want a professional company to help you out.  SERVPRO staff is well-trained and fully equipped to help you out with any water damage emergency. We can even help you restore much of your water damage furniture.

When it comes to upholstery, several problems occur when water is involved. Framing is usually made of wood, so it is subject to swelling and cracking. Framing joints also weaken plus water can cause glues to break down which causes damage to the furniture.

Fabrics which are dry clean only can spot from the water. SERVPRO techs many need to wet the entire piece of furniture to avoid water lines. Dust covers also bleed when wet many times, and if the cover sags it can stain your flooring or carpeting. The metal backing on buttons rust and create staining as well. When spotting occurs., we have special spot removal procedures that we follow. The wooden furniture legs can also stain carpeting.

We also work to avoid mildew growth by removing the source of water through rapid drying. Dehumidifiers and air movers are used to lessen the drying time of upholstered furniture.

When we are dealing with wood furniture, two problems arise when it is exposed to water. Water damage can create spotting on the finish or cause cracking, swelling, or weakening of the joints. We may be able to remove water spots with specialized wood care products. A furniture refinisher can repair problems with the frames of wooden furniture.

Furniture that is made of particleboard covered by laminate does not react well to water damage. The laminate can resist water and act as a vapor barrier, while the side that is non-laminated absorbs much water which can lead to warping.
