What do furniture restoration services include?

Furniture restoration usually involves light cleaning methods and cosmetic repairs. The aim is to keep the item's original appearance and structural integrity and retain its value for years to come. With Airtasker, you can easily find a skilled furniture handyman near you. From sofas and antiques to wood and garden furniture, our Taskers can work on all kinds of pieces and help bring them back to their former glory. Here are some popular furniture restorations people book with Airtasker:

Wood furniture restoration

Old or worn-out wood furniture often suffers from faded colour and shine due to years of accumulated dirt and grime. If your wooden cabinet, bed frame, or coffee table is looking dull, it's high time for a wood furniture restoration. Your handyman starts by stripping your furniture of old layers with a mix of old varnish and polish.

Once the stripper has fully dissolved, it's time to neutralise the wood by applying a wax and polish remover or white spirit and leaving it to sit for 24 hours. Afterwards, a sanding block is used to smoothen out any raised edges. The final step involves applying coats of finishing oil to enhance the furniture's sheen and improve its durability.

Antique furniture restoration

Most people equate antiques to wood furniture, but these can also include pieces made from other materials such as silver or marble. Book an antique furniture restoration service if you have antique furniture you're thinking of updating or selling. Similar to the wood restoration process, restoring and repairing antique furniture involves stripping away the old finish from top to bottom.

Once your handyman gets to the base surface of your antique, they fill in any cracks, vacuum away any remaining debris, and sand off the surface. Afterwards, they can then start restoring your antique furniture by applying several coats of finish or stain to make it look as brand new as possible.

Garden furniture restoration

Your garden furniture can easily be subjected to damage from rain, snow, and other harsh weather conditions. Once your garden tables and chairs start to look shabby, it's best to hire a garden furniture restorer to bring back their lustre. Depending on the material of your furniture, your handyman can apply a variety of restoration processes.

Plastic chairs and tables are washed down with hot water and soap and then bleached to remove any stubborn stains. Wrought-iron furniture, on the other hand, is painted with specialist paint to remove existing and prevent future rust. Fabric seats and cushions are also cleaned using upholstery shampoo and dried thoroughly before use to avoid mildew.

Sofa restoration

If your beloved sofa is looking a little worse for wear, you can also hire a tradesman to take care of your sofa restoration. You can have your sofa covers changed for a splash of colour, your sofa legs revamped for a new look, or have your entire couch reupholstered. In case there are any sagging areas or tears, we can also help repair your sofa by replacing broken strings or place sealants around the damaged area.

If you are wondering how much to shell out in antique furniture restoration costs, the average you will pay starts at $35 to as much as $1800. Prices usually depend on the size and damage of the furniture. Keen to know more? Check out our easy-to-refer furniture restoration cost guide.
