Restoring Pet Damage on Furniture
Pet Damage: Restoring Your Leather Furniture
(and your relationship with your pet)
Even though your blood pressure could be high after seeing the damage your pet caused, it’s good to know that restoration options are available. There is often no need to replace your damaged furniture as restoring scratches, holes, and tears caused by your furry friends is something to consider.
- the amount of damage on the furniture (is it a few square inches or a few square feet?)
- the type of material the damage is on (is it genuine leather, bonded leather, or another type of material)
- the replacement value of the furniture itself (in other words, is it worth restoring)
- how much do you love your pet (just kidding but not kidding at the same time 🙂 )
Can I repair the damage myself?
Let’s answer that question with a question: when you need stitches on your hand, are you inclined to administer them yourself or go to the Doctor? Exactly, that’s what we thought you’d say! Some things are best left to trained professionals and this is one of them. Especially if you really like your furniture and want to get it back to looking great again. It’s worth spending the money on restoration and erase the visible reminder of your pet’s ‘handy work’.
How much does it cost and how does it work?
Most mobile furniture repair experts will charge a minimum of $200 and depending on the extent of the damage, it could be more. It may depend on the type of material and the exact procedures needed for the job. Most professionals will ask for you to send them photos of the damage so they can assess the situation, then provide you information from there. It’s worth asking a local Fibrenew furniture restoration expert for options.
