Measure Your Sofa Upholstery Fabric

Your sofa’s outside and inner materials as well as the dust cover and cushioned cording should all be measured with precision before you buy it.

The best approach to get accurate measures is to take out all the cloth at this point, lay it out flat, and measure each flat piece. Calculate how much fabric you’ll need for your upholstery cleaning job by writing down all of these dimensions.

Visit your local fabric shop with your dimensions and notes in hand to see what they have to offer in terms of Furniture Upholstery Dubai fabric.

Stapling stronger fabric to your sofa may be more complex than stapling lighter fabric, but the longer it lasts, the better. However, we suggest selecting a heavier upholstery fabric in this situation.

Remove Dust Cover

Take the legs off your sofa by flipping it over. Most sofas have a “dust cover” on the bottom that staples into place. Protect your furniture with a furniture cover against dust, pests, and burrowing pets looking for a cozy spot on your sofa.

Remove the dust cover by gently removing the staples surrounding it using a staple remover. Using needle-nose pliers and flathead screwdrivers, remove the upholstery staples if you require more than a staple removal tool.

Avoid ripping or tearing when removing the carpet. After the reupholstery finishes, you may staple the dust cover back onto your sofa. For the time being, keep it stored somewhere secure.

Remove Old Upholstery

Even if you can restore your sofa without totally replacing the old fabric, I don’t recommend this procedure for DIYers who want their sofa to look brand new. Coating the old cloth with the new might make the garment seem big and hefty.

This is a possible choice for individuals who lack the time or motivation to remove the whole piece of old upholstery. If you don’t have the time or inclination to reupholster your furniture, try sewing a sofa cover instead of relying on reupholstery.

Take caution while removing the old upholstery fabric from your sofa. Before you begin, stretch your fingers wide and take a big breath.

While every sofa is different, it is generally recommended that you remove the fabric pieces from the sofa in the order in which they were originally connected.

Look at how your previous sofa upholstery was put together and you’ll know whether you’ll need to take off the back panel of the sofa’s upholstery first. Always begin by removing the top layer of cloth and work your way down through the various layers of fabric.

As you separate the layers of fabric, use your staple remover, screwdriver, and needle-nose pliers to remove every staple. You’ll see how the initial content was expanded and how it was utilized in the future by looking at photographs and notes.
