Top Upholstery Repair related questions

How will I know if I should have my furniture reupholstered instead?

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.

How long can upholstered furniture last?

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.

How long does upholstery repair take?

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.

How can I properly take care of my upholstery?

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.

Aside from upholstery repair, what other home maintenance services can I book with Airtasker?

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.

Can a Tasker also help me with plumbing and electrical work?

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 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.
