Several of the central slats had split as well as the support rail, which left our customer sleeping on the floor! Scratches, gouges, dents all leave visible marks in the wood surface and cana€™t be effectively concealed without professional tools and products. In this case our repair specialist Archie was called out to clean a whiskey stain from this leather sofa. Sometimes spilt by accident other times sprayed on intentionally to help freshen the suite.

One of the seat springs had come away from the rail in our customera€™s sofa, but fortunately the spring itself was undamaged. Without this supportive layer you may start to feel the frame and spring underneath, which are sharp and unpleasant to sit on.

Luckily our furniture repair specialist in South London, Darcy, was on hand to repair the damage.
Our customer in London had gouges to wood panelling on their bath tub, leaving noticeable marks running through the wood grain. We always advise to only use specialist products on leather and avoid using general cleaning products on your furniture.
Moreover the difference in colour of two tone leather has a tendency to make any potential repair which involves dyeing the surface of the leather very difficult to conceal. While the most common issue we find is typically that cables become entangled in the mechanism and get severed, this case was different. Our customer had inadvertently spread the stain over a larger area and had tried a whole range of remedies such as boot polish, varnish and even paint to try and hide the damage! This means you can extend the life of your favourite furniture rather than throwing it out. Mark, our local furniture technician in Wigan, is an expert in wood repairs like these and uses a range of specialist tools to get a near perfect result. When the damage like this is extensive then we look to re-upholster the affected area and source a suitable replacement panel.
In this case, Mark our local furniture technician in Ilkley, was able to source a bespoke new metal spring mesh unit to replace the existing one and fitted the new frame in the customera€™s home.


He uses a mixture of wood specialist products and craftsman knowledge from his years of experience to carry out this repair. We repair both manual and electric reclining furniture and routinely repair and replace pistons, motors, switches, and cables. In order to get this furniture reclining again Mark fitted a new rail to the inside of the arm to help support the existing frame. Mitch, one of our local furniture repair technicians was able to re-build this leg and frame, from the ground up so the customer was able to use his furniture again. They work hard for your business, and they restore furniture better than anyone else because they want to keep your business.
Some smaller stores may be able to do this themselves, and that’s understandable in these tough economic times.
Our technicians keep a service record of repairs performed and can receive sign off from a store manager each visit. He then added a new layer of foam padding to the chair, which made it more supportive and comfortable to sit on. We take a lot of pride in the work that we do and wea€™re always delighted when we receive a new review on our website. As the damage was relatively superficial we were able to restore it without our customer needing to replace their leather suite. Fortunately our in-house expert Jonny, was able to establish the likely cause over the phone a€“ the modules which make up the sofa were not connected properly but he reassured the customer that this is something we can repair.A  Andy, our furniture repair expert in Nottingham, was on hand to re-connect the brackets, giving the frame a stronger foundation removing the wobble in the process. Using his expert stain removal techniques, Rick completely restored the furniture back to its true showroom condition. Leather comes in a vast range of finishes so make sure youa€™re familiar with your leather type.
Ita€™s important to remove this prior to cleaning as this will prevent any excess from being spread around your sofa or pressed directly into the leather.
The protector forms an invisible protective barrier against dirt and staining, making it easier to remove any spills. Stephen, our cleaning specialist in Chester performed a full pre-clean to prepare this customera€™s sofas and then used a hot water extraction technique which removes all of the dirt as well as the cleaning detergents. In order to remove the grease our repair specialist in Wolverhampton, Sean, initially provided our customer with an effective de-greaser product to apply to the sofa. He discovered on inspection that not only was the main support rail broken but one of the plastic support legs was missing. Darcy, one of our furniture repair specialists in London carried out a full cosmetic wood repair to conceal the damage.
When damage is done to this extent cleaning to remove the stain is often out of the question as ita€™s virtually impossible to remove the orange colour. Mitch, one of our repair experts, addressed the damage by re-colouring and sealing the leather to make it appear as if it had never been stained. Performing pre-tests to ensure that only solutions suitable for your fabric are used to ensure the furniture is left pH neutral as well as looking clean so therea€™s no risk of bleaching! Christian, our local furniture repair technician in Rhyl, identified that the problem was the transformer. In the image you can see that with high use the foam will eventually start to collapse and lose ita€™s resilience.
He started off by sanding the area to remove any splinters and melting wax filler sticks to fill the chip. The central tie, which supports the cushion foam underneath the seats had come loose, which meant that the foam had become trapped in the webbing (causing the visible sag). In order to repair this damage, Mark our local furniture repair technician in Selby, removed the damaged section of leather and re-upholstered the furniture, stitching it into place. Like all of our In-Home Care & Repair technicians he is an expert in structural repairs and can provide an effective solution there and then in your home so you won't be without your furniture for long. He then screwed a heavy duty bracket to the frame to straighten the recliner and remove the bend in the furniture.
Wooden furniture repairs like these are not just limited to chairs, but something we can carry out on all sorts of different items. However this wasna€™t an issue for Mark, who performs local furniture repairs in the Wakefield area. Procure a few touch-up markers and some furniture-putty fill sticks and you can easily cross train your sales reps to do a halfway decent job making minor damage invisible from a distance.
After the refit, the furniture was completely secure and perfect for relaxing on; our customer was more than happy with the results! It takes time to remove build ups like this as the grease has to be drawn out gradually over the course of a week of daily application and cleaning. Taking accurate measurements he produced a bespoke solid wood support rail, which more hard wearing than the original.
He started by filling the missing wood with hot wax, colour matching the dark tones of the wood.
He started by cleaning the stain, then used an air brush to apply new two tone pigment to the damaged area.
Fortunately we have a resourceful team and we found a replacement part quickly and fitted this to get the customera€™s recliner working again.
Our local furniture repair technician in the Harrogate area, Mark, started out by removing the lacquer finish on the table, he sanded the damaged area and keyed the rest of the table giving him the ideal surface to work with. This sofa cushion had collapsed to the extent that it was causing the customer to roll into the middle of the seats! He then sanded and blended the finish, using a blending pen to restore the natural look of the wood grain.
Mark, our local furniture repair technician in Leeds, was able to restore these cushions to the correct position and performed structural strengthening to ensure that the cushion would not come loose again. As leather is unique to the hide of the animal it came from we have to match the pigment and surface grain of the rest of the leather. We work with most furniture in the home including tables, cabinets, wardrobes, and sideboards.
He diagnosed the problem immediately a€“ the scissor arm inside the chair had severed most of the wiring inside, leaving our customer with a stuck open recliner! Once the grease had been removed, Sean returned and recoloured the armchair matching the two tone leather pigment.
He used a blending crayon to help conceal the areas and a graining pen to add extra detail.
Archie was able to clean, re-paint, seal and lacquer the affected area so that the damage is completely invisible. He then sealed the colour to avoid it rubbing off and matched the sheen of the sofa by layering high gloss lacquer onto the affected area.
In order to restore the dark brown colour he evenly re-sprayed the table with a specialist wood spray and applied several coats of high gloss lacquer for the sheen. Mark, our local furniture repair technician in Flint, measured, sourced and fitted 5 new foam seat interiors for this customera€™s suite and re-upholstered all the soft coverings. He added an additional layer of foam to bolster both seats, secured the broken tie back into the framework.
Mark re-coloured the entire panel to ensure it fitted in perfectly with the rest of the sofa. Mark started off by removing all of the damaged parts, which included the recliner cable, transformer, power leads, and the switch. The repair was very successful as you can see from the pictures, ita€™s difficult to make out where the damage was. The repair is virtually invisible and almost impossible to tell that damage was ever there. He then finished by sealing the areas with lacquers, which matches the sheen of the wood and prevents dirt being attracted into the repaired areas.
With the parts replaced he fitted the wiring securely inside the chair so it wouldna€™t become trapped in the mechanism again.
