Fire & Water Damaged Furniture Repair and Restoration

How does antique furniture become water damaged?

Water damaged furniture can occur when it has been left sitting in a moisture-rich environment, such as a leaking or flooded basement. Floods can saturate furniture with water causing damage, but damp conditions can also cause problems. Moisture seeps into the wood and can make it appear discoloured and swollen, sometimes leaving a build-up of mould or mildew on the furniture. When wood has been subjected to water it can warp, expand and crack, and the joints could be loosened. The type of water that damaged your furniture is also an important consideration with flood and water damaged furniture restoration.
