SERVPRO Techs Have Comprehensive Training to Handle All Types of Water Damage Cleanup in Morristown

There are many reasons that the upholstery in a house gets soaked, but the bottom line is this: it needs to get dried as rapidly as possible for the best outcome. 

SERVPRO technicians never have a one-size-fits-all approach for cleaning and drying upholstered furnishings in Morristown with water damage. The techs carefully test fibers to determine the construction materials rather than rely on visual examinations only. This inhibits the potential for mistakes in choosing the furniture restoration method, including the drying procedure. Some of the most common upholstery types need special handling, such as: 

  • Frieze is susceptible to shrinkage and bleeding
  • Open weave should not get subjected to agitation
  • Velvets and velours are sensitive to wet cleaning
  • Homespun is a sturdy upholstery fabric that responds well to most cleaning methods

When drying cushions on loveseats or sofas, the techs often use a drying style that involves the cushions upright and leaned into each other. They get rotated during the drying phase to ensure they get completely dried. 

SERVPRO of Hamblen County at (423) 318-6733 serves the local Morristown community with any size water damage restoration services needed.
