Who Can Benefit from Commercial Upholstery?

Commercial premises stand to gain from reupholstery services more than anyone. Replacing worn-out equipment is an expensive task, especially when you get into buying multiple units for large premises.

As reupholstery is a cost-effective, eco-friendly alternative to buying new furniture, you’d think that it would be a no-brainer for companies to opt for upholstery services when it comes to their outdated furniture. However, the truth is that few business owners think upholsterers can help them with their specific needs.

In reality, they couldn’t be more wrong. Here are just a few personal service providers that can benefit from commercial upholstery services.

Healthcare Upholstery

It won’t be the first thing to spring to mind, but seating is integral to a patient’s experience with a healthcare service. From the doctor’s waiting room, to blood collection chairs, physio equipment, and dental chairs, seating is everywhere. With many patients coming and going, it’s no wonder healthcare seating gets worn down quickly.

Reupholstery can be a great money-saving option for many services in need of furniture repairs. By using materials that are anti-bacterial, strong, durable and stain resistant, reupholstery is proven to be a safe and reliable alternative to purchasing expensive new pieces.

At South West Upholstery, we even use materials that are able to counteract Clostridium difficile, MRSA and E-coli, maintaining the highest professional standards and meeting the expectations of specialist sectors.

Barber shops and hairdressers are core services where seating certainly experiences its fair share of wear and tear. Your whole experience at the hairdressers revolves around the chair. From the moment you’re through the door, sitting in the waiting area, before moving to the hairdressing chair and the backwash chair – and it’s not just you.

Hairdressers rely on streams of clients coming through their doors, so it’s no wonder that seating gets tatty pretty quickly.

If you run a hairdressers, considering the use of an upholstery service to replace inner cushions and fix up bits of damage could be just what you need. Just like specialist medical chairs, hairdressing chairs can be extremely expensive to replace. This doesn’t mean that they can be ignored – customers will begin to notice, and your professional reputation could be jeopardised.
