Commercial Upholstery: How do I determine when your furniture needs reupholstering?

As a business owner, you probably already know the benefits of reupholstering rather than buying a new piece of furniture altogether. Not only is this good for your wallet, but it is also great for the planet. Today, we’ll be sharing with you how to determine when your furniture needs reupholstering.

Flat and Saggy Cushions

When a guest sits down to relax and notices a flat cushion, you may have them leave with a negative first impression. However, you can avoid this issue by keeping your cushions plump and fluffy.

We often use foam or feathers for replacement cushions. You can learn more about these
options in our article about replacement inner cushions.

Stains, Spills and Damage

Life is filled with mistakes. It is expected that every once in a while, a customer will drop a coffee or creamy snack on something. This is where our contract upholstery comes into play. This can be the perfect option for pubs, clubs, restaurants, offices, shops, hotels, night clubs, museums and more. Wherever you have guests arriving, we can help you hold your seating and other furniture options to a very high standard. You can expect red wine spills, food stains and other accidents to accumulate over time. While it may seem simple to clean initially, there will be a time where those “hacks” no longer do the trick then, you can give us a call.

If you have a specific piece that you truly love, we recommend giving it a regular check over for quick action once damage does arrive.

Cracks and Visual Damage

While it may not seem like a major issue right away, a crack on the outside of a seat can make something appear to be rickety or dated.

By quickly acting on this – you can avoid any unnecessary ideas about your establishment to be implanted in anyone’s minds. For example, we quickly acted on reupholstering this dental chair for one of our clients. Not only did this help with the presentation of the room and make their patients feel more at ease, but it also helped complete that professional atmosphere.

Unusual Upholstery After Years of Use

After years of use, it is inevitable that your furniture will need some tender love and care. Our experts know how to work with even the most unusual upholstering jobs.
Whether you’re looking at caravan upholstery or even boat upholstery, we will be able to assist you.

Frays and Tears

Once you start to see visual damage on your furniture – you may realise it is time to get it fixed. Sofas and chairs in a busy waiting room may fray quickly, but you will be glad to have gotten it sorted.

If your business is looking to create a sense of care and quality, holding your furniture to that standard will do you well. A fray can advance quickly from being a tiny nuisance to a big disaster. It is always better to nip something in the bud before giving it a chance to cause any more damage.

That being said, your old chair with holes, smoke stains and many years of damage can also live through its own renaissance. By reupholstering your items you are bringing life and quality back into these beautiful pieces.
