Flood damaged furniture
I will be inspecting some flood damaged solid wood furniture tomorrow where the customer desires to have it restored.
I know that there will be some water marks remaining from the flood and that prompts me to ask,
"Is there a way to remove them?"
I don't believe that they can be sanded out but I do believe that I could darken the furniture to hide them, if that is what the customer wants.
I think this situation is similar to water soaked drywall - the minerals in the material turn it brown which at that point can be hidden by painting over it with a primer.
Stripping & bleaching may also be a cure for this problem
