We love our dogs, but not what they do to our furniture.

We’ve all been there. You bring Fido home from the shelter and the first thing he does when you aren’t looking is chew on all your favorite furniture. Apart from investing in some puppy training classes, can you possibly salvage the situation? Or is all your favorite furniture gone for good?

Don’t panic, you can undo the damage that has been done if you know who to call. A good furniture restoration company can buff out those chew marks and salvage your favorite sofa. The following are some services you should consider to help repair your living room furniture.

Furniture Reupholstery

In this case, you can call in a team of professionals or attempt to DIY your way through. Some furniture pieces like headboards and dining chairs are easier to reupholster than others. If you aren’t willing to risk it, investing in professional reupholstery is the way to go to ensure that your fabric or leather furniture looks good as new.

 

Furniture Repair

Even if you think that your pooch damaged your furniture beyond repair, there may still be hope. Furniture repair services can transform your broken, chewed and splintering furniture into a brand new version, without forcing you to sacrifice the integrity of the original piece.

Let’s say your dog decided to chew up the wooden legs and frame of your leather sofa. Rather than replace it with an entirely new sofa, furniture repair simply uses new wood to rebuild the sofa in the same way that it was originally styled. When it’s all said and done, furniture repair ensures that your furniture looks the same as it did before the damage.

 

Furniture Restoration

Similar to furniture repair, furniture restoration is an option for furniture that has mainly surface damage, or hasn’t experienced the level of damage that would require it to be entirely repaired. Furniture restoration is recommended only for the portions of your furniture pieces that are damaged, and it ensures that your sofa looks good as new.

If your new pup has an accident, furniture restoration is there to help.

 

Furniture Protection

If you’ve already paid for your salvaged furniture or you haven’t brought your new dog home yet, consider investing in furniture protection for your existing living and dining room pieces. Basically, furniture protection can protect against stains and unwanted accidents that are a part of new dog ownership.

Whether you want both UV protection and stain protection or you just want to protect against stains, investing in protection is a great way to ensure that you won’t have to pay to repair or replace furniture in the future.

If you’re considering getting a dog, you don’t have to sacrifice your favorite furniture. Accidents happen when you add a new family member, but you can bounce back with these and other great furniture services, if you know who to call. Fido and your furniture can live in peace. Plan ahead, stay calm, and have a furniture doctor’s number on speed dial.
