    What does an upholstery repair service include?

    Upholstery repairs usually refer to couches and sofas, but this also extends to dining chairs, car upholstery, and all kinds of fabric/padded furniture. Here are some of the most common services and what you can expect:


    Fabric couch upholstery repair

    Couch upholstery repair is a popular service - after all, the fabric surfaces of couches are usually the first place they show damage and wear. With a few fixes, your couch could have many more years of wear left in it. Your repairer may fix a tear by sewing the edges together or gluing a patch of matching fabric underneath the hole. If your sofa has major damage, they may need to reupholster a section or the entire couch. In this case, they’ll work with you to select the best fabric to match your lounge set and space before cutting it to size (including all seat cushions and the backing). They’ll use your old couch fabric as a template and will remove the staples holding it to the frame. Your repairer will make the cording before covering the arms, back, seat, and cushions with the new fabric.


    Leather upholstery repair

    Leather upholstery is tough but still prone to cracking, peeling, fading, and tearing. Fortunately, leather upholstery repair is possible and can restore your furniture so you can get more use out of it. Small scratches can be gently polished out with a good quality leather conditioner. For bigger scratches and holes, your repair person may glue a leather patch in place. If the stitching has come apart on your leather couch or dining chair, they’ll use a leather needle and special thread to make the repairs.


    Dining chair upholstery repair

    Dining chairs can be repaired in much the same way as fabric or leather lounges. If the damage is minor, your repairperson will disguise the hole, scratch, or tear. But for worn-out dining chairs or significant damage, they’ll likely need to reupholster your chairs. They’ll unscrew the seat from the base and remove the tacks or staples so they can pull the old fabric and padding off the chair. Next, they’ll use the wooden seat as a template to cut out new padding, seat fabric, and a dustcover, leaving enough room for a seam. Your repairer will use staples to secure these to the seat before screwing your seat back onto the base.


    Car upholstery repair

    Leather, vinyl, and fabric car upholstery can be repaired by gluing a matching patch of fabric behind any holes or tears. For major damage, your upholsterer will likely recommend reupholstering the entire car seat.
