Furniture is damaged during a house flood when eater is allowed to soak into the base or feet of the piece. Skirts along the bottom of chairs can be affected as well due to color bleeding. As with anything to do with drying, time is crucial. Getting the furniture out of the water is often the first step for any water damage team after a house flood.
The most common use of furniture damage is swelling of wood. For expensive solid wood pieces this often takes time and can be avoided by “blocking” the furniture during the extraction process. However, for particle board and pieces made with MDF wood these pieces can be ruined in a matter of hours. Fortunately, most home insurance policies cover ruined furniture due to water damage.
