Can SERVPRO Help in Restoring Fire Damage to Furniture in Seal Beach Homes?
SERVPRO Helps Seal Beach Residents Get Their Homes Back in Order After a Fire Damage Incidence
Fire and smoke can damage various contents of your home, including wooden furniture. The restorability of furniture after fire damage to your Seal Beach home depends on both the type of finish and the extent of smoke damage.
The methods that SERVPRO techs use to clean wooden furniture after fire damage to your Seal Beach home depend on the type of surface. Unfinished wood is porous and can easily absorb smoke residue and odor, making it difficult to clean. SERVPRO techs use dry cleaning methods for such surfaces. On the other hand, wood surfaces finished with varnishes, shellac, lacquer, or paint can withstand wet cleaning. SERVPRO restorers use alkali surface cleaners or mild detergents to clean such surfaces.
Can Professionals Restore all Furniture in Fire Damaged Homes in Seal Beach?
Restoration may not be possible if the surface of the furniture in your Seal Beach home is heavily blistered or permanently stained. In such cases, the SERVPRO technicians recommend refinishing the damaged surfaces.
- Blistering: Heat from fire damage can result in the blistering of wooden surfaces allowing the smoke to penetrate the finish and discolor it. Consequently, it might not be possible for SERVPRO experts to restore such surfaces.
- Staining: Dry smoke damage can be easily cleaned, while wet smoke particles (often containing aerosols) can permanently stain the surfaces. Refinishing might be the only option in such situations.
