Upholstery Vs. Re-Upholstery

Many people don’t know the difference between upholstery and re-upholstery, let us clear it up for you;

Upholstery is the fabric on pieces of furniture, as well as the padding that is stuffed inside of it for comfort. This wears over time and some consider getting it replaced.

How to Properly Care for Upholstery in Motherwell

How well you take care of your upholstered furniture plays a huge part in its lifespan. Here are some of our care guidelines to help ensure you get the most out of your furniture;

  • Regularly rotate loose cushions to ensure equal wear on both sides
  • Avoid having sharp objects near upholstery as this may cause it to snag
  • Where possible, avoid having pets on upholstered furniture to avoid fabric snagging
  • Do not machine wash any revocable cushion covers
  • Clean accidental spillages immediately to avoid deep staining
  • Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight
  • Plump cushions regularly to allow them to keep their shape

Following these guidelines as much as you possibly can will help you get the most wear out of your upholstered furniture.

Furniture Placement

Where you place your furniture is crucial, not just for the furniture itself but for other aspects of your property as well. Here are some of our most essential furniture placement tips;

  • Put protective felt under furniture that is on wooden flooring, this will help prevent scratching on both the furniture and the floor.
  • Never force reclining furniture open or closed, always keep in mind that the reclining mechanism will be stiff to begin with but will loosen over time.
  • Ensure that there is enough room for reclining furniture to operate without hitting any other pieces of furniture or walls etc. in the process.
  • If you are unwrapping new or newly re-upholstered furniture and are unhappy with the way it looks (flat, creased etc.) don’t worry, take the palm of your hand and smooth over the cushions in circular motions to help it regain its shape.

Aftercare of Leather Upholstery

If you opt for leather re-upholstery in Motherwell, there are a number of things that you can do to help protect it and keep it looking its best for as long as possible. Some of our leather upholstery aftercare tips include;

  • Only use cleaning products that are recommended by the manufacturer (if you are unsure get in touch with us and one of our specialist leather upholsters can give you advice)
  • Wipe regularly with a soft, damp cloth to keep leather upholstery looking new
  • Vacuum up any dirt and dust that builds up underneath the cushions
  • To help prevent cracking and heat related damage, keep leather furniture at least 50cm away from any source of heat
  • If any liquid gets spilt on leather upholstery, blot it up straight away, do not rub dry as this could lead to damage or discolouration
  • For light coloured leather: take caution when sitting on it whilst wearing denim or non-colourfast dark clothes, especially if it is wet or damp as this can cause dye transfer to stain the leather

Prevent Damage to Upholstery

After getting stunning furniture re-upholstery in Motherwell, the last thing you want is for it to get damaged, some tips for preventing damage on newly re-upholstered furniture include;

  • Avoid putting pieces of furniture where they will be regularly exposed to extreme hot or cold conditions (next to a heater or air conditioner) as this can cause furniture to crack and cause wear much faster
  • Avoid sitting on the arms or back of the sofa as this can damage and warp the furniture’s frame
  • Avoid sitting on the edges of cushions as this can cause them to lose their shape
  • Avoid leaving newspapers or magazines on upholstery as the dye can transfer onto the furniture
