Recliner chairs are a popular choice for many homeowners because of its unbeaten comfort and visual appeal. What most people fail to realise is that recliner chairs contain several mechanical or electrical components that can wear down over time. If your recliner chair sags, makes squeaking noises or is unable to recline completely, you need to have it checked and repaired by a skilled handyman. A recliner chair repair includes a visual inspection, repair or replacement of damaged parts, and a final post-repair assessment. Here's a more detailed view of what to expect when you book with Airtasker for your recliner repair:
Recliner chair assessment
Before starting the repair work, your repair handyman first needs to ask you for more details about your recliner, including the brand and model and assesses its current condition. From the pull handle and footrest to the seat padding, they'll check for any signs of damage and even test out your chair to get to the root of the problem. You can also mention any issues you've experienced while using your recliner, which can include sagging cushions, screeching noises, or your entire chair getting stuck while reclining. This way, your handyman can immediately figure out what's wrong and perform the proper repairs.
Recliner chair repair
A recliner chair repair is a simple process of replacing any defective parts depending on the damage. If your recliner sinks upon sitting, your handyman can easily replace any broken or disconnected springs. For a jammed or malfunctioning footrest, a faulty pull handle or ratchet is probably to blame in which case your handyman removes the old parts and screws in new ones. In case your chair fails to recline, it's simply a matter of installing a new lever and stabilising the joints.
For any squeaking or other unusual noises, all your handyman has to do is spray a specialised lubricant all over the nuts, bolts, springs, hinges, coils and other moving mechanisms. Regardless of the damage or problem, we can make every effort to get your recliner repaired so you can skip the hassle and costs of having to buy a new recliner.
Final recliner chair inspection
After fixing any faults and repairing any damages, it's best to do a final inspection of your recliner to ensure a successful job. Your Tasker can inspect your recliner from top to bottom and confirm if all previous issues have been corrected. There should be no more noise, sunken cushions, or any difficulty manoeuvring the lever and pulling system. Your recliner should also recline smoothly and up to the exact degree depending on manufacturer specifications.
