Water damage is one of the most common forms of damage to particle board. Particle board is a composite material made from wood chips and binding agents. It is often used in furniture and cabinetry because it is very inexpensive. However, particle board is also very susceptible to water damage. If water leaks onto particle board, it can cause the wood chips to swell and the binding agents to break down. This can cause the particle board to warp, crumble, and become structurally unsound. Fortunately, water damage to particle board can be repaired. First, the affected area must be dried out completely. Then, any warped or swollen particle board must be replaced. Once the replacement boards are in place, the area can be sanded smooth and painted or sealed to match the surrounding area. With a little effort, water damage to particle board does not have to be a permanent problem.
