Top Upholstery Repair related questions

If your sofa's damage is too significant, simple repairs may not be enough. A great way to determine whether you should get your furniture reupholstered is carefully looking at the springs in the frame. Sofas of high quality have coiled springs bound with twine in a sort of snowflake or asterisk pattern throughout. If this is the case, you can easily have your sofa reupholstered. If, however, your sofa contains rubber panels instead of springs, then consider getting it replaced.
Quality upholstered furniture typically lasts anywhere between seven to fifteen years. Furniture placed in homes with children and pets can suffer more damage and thus have a shorter lifespan, but with proper maintenance and care, your furniture can last longer. Once you notice any tatters, hear popping noises, or feel a "sinking" feeling when you sit on your sofa, it's best to get it repaired quickly or replaced with a new one.
It all depends on the extent and severity of damage found in your couches and chairs. In general, an upholstery repair is a simple and straightforward process that can take a few hours. On the other hand, if you need to reupholster your sofa completely, additional time may be required. If you want to know the time frame of your upholstery service, just ask your Tasker, and they'll be happy to go over the job with you.
Properly maintaining your upholstered sofas and chairs can help you extend their longevity and retain their quality. First and foremost, avoid direct sunlight on your upholstered furniture to prevent deterioration. Also do regular vacuum cleaning now and then to prevent dust, grime, and dirt seeping into the fibres of your upholstery. You can also invest in specialized stain protectors for added protection and for slowing down any environmental damage.
You can book virtually any home maintenance service with Airtasker. If you've purchased new furniture, but you're too busy or tired to put them together, you can hire a professional assembler to do it for you. In case you want to freshen up or modernize your entire patio, kitchen, or living room, you can also find a local building contractor or tradesman who can help you with your home renovation project.
Sure! With Airtasker, you can easily find a local repairman for virtually any kind of work you need. Whether you're looking to have your leaks fixed, your pipes repaired, or blocked toilets cleared, we have plenty of skilled plumbers who can lend a helping hand. In case it's your lighting and electrical systems that need inspection and repair, you can also hire a licensed electrician to do the job for you safely.

What do upholstery repair services include?

Upholstery can make or break the look of your furniture and even your entire space. That's why as soon as you notice any damage to your upholstery, it's best to get it checked and repaired right away. Upholstery repair services include all the big or small tasks needed to get your damaged or old upholstery back in good condition. Your Tasker can assess your current upholstery, offer quick and effective solutions, then do a final inspection to ensure a job well done. For a better idea of the repair process, here are more details:

Upholstery assessment

Your Tasker first needs to assess the condition of your upholstery, which includes checking the fabric, padding, frame, and support system of your chairs and couches. They can look for any signs of damage such as spills, stains, and tears and look for any areas with unsightly wear and tear.

You can also inform your Tasker in case there have been any accidents or incidents that involve your upholstered furniture. Did your pet accidentally pee on your couch? Maybe you stained your chair with hair dye or ink? By letting your Tasker know of these situations, you can help them pinpoint the problem and quickly offer the best solution.

Upholstery repair

Upholstery repair can involve a wide range of different processes depending on the type and severity of damage to your furniture. If you're dealing with tears and rips, your Tasker can stitch the fabric together and conceal the stitch by placing a larger patch in the area.

Suppose your chair upholstery has stubborn stains from lotion, dye, sticky food items, and other liquid-based messes. In that case, your Tasker can scrape away any residue and apply a manufacturer-recommended cleaner using soft, gentle strokes. If you're looking to have your furniture reupholstered, our Taskers can also help you out! From taking the correct measurements to using your chosen fabric material, you can leave the entire process to our upholstery experts.

Final upholstery inspection

After doing the necessary repairs on your cushions, a final inspection is needed to complete your in-home upholstery repair. Your Tasker can check if all damages and previous issues have been resolved and even ask you to test out your new couch to ensure you're delighted with the job. In case you want to have custom upholstered furniture installed, you can also find skilled carpenters who can readily get your project underway.
