- What about my wet furniture?
- What is mould?
- Do I need general contractors?
The extent of damage and the construction of the furniture will determine if it can be restored. Your furniture must be dried before damage can be adequately assessed. Non-salvageable furniture will be documented for you and if any items need to be discarded, a customer release form will need to be signed.
Mould is a fungus that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of mould exist, but estimates range from tens of thousands to even three hundred thousand, or more. Mould spreads and reproduces by creating spores. Spores can survive conditions that are too sunny, hot, cold, dry or wet for mould to grow. When spores are released they can be carried by air or water to new locations and cause new mould growth.
There are some aspects of the restoration process that may require the services of general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets, post-construction cleanup, etc. ServiceMaster Restore offers full reconstruction services.
