Top Furniture Restoration related questions

Instead of spending a fortune on brand new furniture, simply hiring an expert to restore your old one saves you the exorbitant costs. There's also the possibility of having limited options where your new furniture doesn't match the rest of your room's interior or doesn't come in the finish or type of wood you prefer. Furniture restoration can serve as a middle ground where you can save money and also have the pleasure of having new-looking furniture.

Truthfully, it doesn't matter what kind of polish you use. Most furniture finishes today already contain enough protection for your furniture. The best way to preserve your furniture is to clean it regularly and keep it dry and free from dirt and debris. However, if you do plan on using polish, you can use an oil or wax polish and avoid silicone. When the time comes to restore your furniture, silicone can significantly affect the final output.

Proper maintenance of wood furniture is crucial to extending their lifespan and retaining their quality. Avoid environmental damage by placing your furniture away from direct sunlight and heat. It's also best to dust them often to prevent grime and dirt buildup that can scratch or tarnish your furniture's surface. Since most commercially-made sprays and polishes contain harsh chemicals, make sure to use just the right amount of product to avoid damage and protect the original wood.

Restoring furniture is a relatively easy but detailed and meticulous process. If your handyman is dealing with wooden or antique furniture, the restoration service can take a day or two to ensure the new polish and finishing have adequately set. For smaller furniture like sofas and plastic or wrought-iron garden chairs and tables, the restoration process can take a few hours or a half day's work.

Definitely! At Airtasker, we've got furniture experts available to help you with all your furniture needs. Whether you need a professional assembler to put together a brand new garden set or a skilled carpenter to add finishing touches to your wooden cabinet, we can help you out. Our platform lets you post your needs and set your budget and schedule, so you can find the right person for the job you need.

Yes! With Airtasker, we can help you with all sorts of house maintenance tasks. When you need a leak repaired, a hot water system installed, or a sink tap replaced, we can connect you with local plumbers who can get the job done. Our transparent rating system will help you find experts nearby who have the skills and experience so that you can hire with confidence.

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.
