SERVPRO Can Remediate Mold Damage to Belongings and Furnishings

House furniture is highly susceptible to water damage and, consequently, mold damage. This is especially because most furniture is made of wood, which is a hygroscopic material. In other words, it can soak up and retain water (like a sponge.) While this may be good for the tree, it can be disastrous for your Lebanon home's furniture. Within a matter of days, mold growth can occur and lead to heavy losses and possible health effects.
 
SERVPRO has highly trained technicians based in Lebanon if you notice signs of mold damage on your furniture. We have industry-standard products designed to eliminate mold growth on any materials, including wooden furniture. Following IICRC recommendations, our professional mold remediation experts can restore your property to preloss conditions as quickly as possible.
 
Metal furniture is highly resistant to mold damage because of the relatively insufficient organic materials present, which are essential for mold to thrive. However, the paint on the metal furniture may contain some form of cellulose, on which the mold can feed. Additionally, if your furniture is seated next to a house plant, organic materials can transfer to the surface and facilitate mold growth. The effect on the metal may include rusting, tarnishing, and other forms of weakening oxidation.
 
Wood furniture is much more vulnerable to mold damage because it is an organic material in and of itself. Even wood vanish, wood glue, and wax finish can contain organic materials for mold to feed on. Thanks to the porous nature of wood, mold spores can easily seep into the grains and expand into colonies that structurally weaken your furniture. Wood that has sustained severe mold damage can succumb to rotting and risk spreading the mold further into your home.
 
Upholstered furniture has the worst reaction to mold growth. Most upholstery consists of organic materials such as cotton, leather, silk, and linen - all food sources for mold. These materials are porous too, meaning that mold can easily penetrate deep into the cushions and fabrics and contaminate the entire furniture. When this happens, there is little we can do other than discarding the piece and replacing it with another one.
 
Choosing the right furniture for your home takes time and a lot of research, which is why you cannot afford to tolerate mold growth. As soon as possible, alert SERVPRO of Wilson County to inspect and treat any signs of mold damage on your furniture. We are available 24/7 at (615) 449-5000.
