Everything you need to know about finding an upholsterer
Repair to upholstery damage can bring life back to your favourite piece of furniture, restoring its place as the centerpiece of the room. Damage to valued pieces of furniture should be repaired immediately as the damage itself may quickly become irreversible if left unattended too long.
Upholstery repairs may be required as a result of:
Dirt & Fluid spillage - Stains may be removed with industrial cleaners produced for your specific type of upholstery. Make sure to test-clean the affected area first and to follow the manufacturers instructions. Spray-on colouring agents may also be used to cover stains that are unable to be removed by a cleaner.
Burns, tears & failing seams - Sewing, patching or gluing the tears or failing seams effectively repair this sort of damage.
Sun damage - Upholstery colour can become faded and unbalanced when exposed to sunshine. Keep the upholstery away from direct sunlight in order to avoid this.
Loss of tacks - It is possible to easily replace the tacks that secure the upholstery to a piece of furniture.
Frame damage - Wooden components attached to upholstery are also easily repaired.
Tools that may be used to repair upholstery include:
Commercial upholstery cleaners
Upholstery & sewing needles
