Broken Water pipe and new furniture

lorraine303January 12, 2004

My son, who lives in a basement apartment, just called to tell us that a pipe broke and flooded his room with enough water to reach his box spring on his new bed and damage his new - oh, it's all new....he just used all his Christmas money to buy an entertainment center and we just bought him a dresser...

Anyway, the water is out, the carpet will be tossed, the box spring will be tossed, - what can or should be done about the furniture that got wet on the bottom?

Take out all the drawers, mop out as much water as possible and place them in a COOL dry place with good air flow

Drying over heat will warp them.
