Top tips for improving settee support!
When it comes to improving settee support, look no further. The Mobility Furniture Company provides quality, durable, and comfortable settees that add style to your home furniture collection. Our settees take up little space in the house making them ideal for both small and large spaces.
Maintaining your furniture may sometimes seem challenging and in this article, we focus on how to improve your settee support for added function and durability.
Avoid exerting too much pressure on your settee
Once in a while, you may notice a crack or break in the middle of the framework of your settee, especially after a number of children have jumped on it or after placing a high-pressure load on it. An excellent way to prevent this is by doubling up its stretcher using a firm board and nails. This adds support to the weak point and keeps it from giving way under pressure.
In addition, discourage children, teenagers, or whoever else has a habit of jumping on the settee from doing so. No matter their weight, settees ought to be treated gently for increased framework durability. Heavy items should also not be placed on top of the settee, especially not for extended periods of time.
Cushions may begin to appear mushy or flattened after a while of using them, leaving you with body pains and altered comfort. There are many tricks available online on how to fix this, but they only make the cushions temporarily firm. The best solution is to replace the cushion’s foam. It is an easy, inexpensive, and less time-consuming task as compared to other online techniques.
Adjust your sitting position
Another way to improve your settee’s support is by sitting on different parts of it at different times. Getting used to one spot of the settee is a habit most of us tend to have. It ends up leaving the settee looking worn out and saggy on one part and relatively firm and new in the other part. To avoid this, sit on alternating sides of the settee every day. Moreover, flip and swap the cushions regularly. This distributes weight evenly and prevents unwanted bumps which interfere with the comfort and support of your settee.
Rule of no sleeping on the settee
Sleeping on the settee is another habit many of us find irresistible. Settees are meant for sitting and not sleeping as this makes them droop and sag, which in turn reduces the support they offer to your body. Anytime you feel sleepy, lie on your bed instead of the settee. This not only saves your settee but also ensures you sleep comfortably.
Extra care when moving your settee
Your settee is most vulnerable to damage when being moved from either one part of the room to another or from house to house. Whichever the case, avoid pulling, pushing, dragging or knocking it against walls. Instead, find someone to help you carefully lift it from one place to another.
Checking your settee for broken or wobbly parts and loose screws is a great way to maintain and improve its support. Making this a regular activity ensures no damage goes unnoticed. Delayed repair weakens the settee making it vulnerable to more damage. Fixing a small part of the settee is better than having to repair the whole thing.
The ultimate solution
If all these have been done and your settee still feels shaky, looks worn, or has gone through too many repairs, then the long-lasting solution is to purchase a brand new one. These are available at the Mobility Furniture Company in varied designs, colours, sizes, and affordable pricing.
