This Black Pvc sofa had a tear in it. In order to repair the technician had to begin by cutting around the edges to remove the hard pieces. We do this using a Stanley knife. Firstly the technician cleans the area using leather cleaner and a lint free cloth. Next the technician uses leather prep and a lint free cloth to prepare the area. This removes the manufacturers coating on the area.
Now the technician applies leather filler. This is then dried using a hair dryer. Once the filler has gone hard and see through the technician uses sand paper to smooth the area.
Then the technician applies colour to the pvc. This is done using an air compressor. After the colour is applied this is dried using a hair dryer.
Finally the technician applies a coat of lacquer. This seals and protects the repair. After the Pvc repair has been completed the area needs to be left for at least 2 hours until it is dry enough to touch if the customer wishes to have a closer look at the repair however we do not recommend it if you can help it. The area should then not be used for approximately 72 hours depending on how much colour and filler is applied during the repair and on how much damage there was to repair.
On going maintenance
We advise that all leather is cleaned and protected every six months this allows the leather to stay clean and fresh and the protection cream gives that extra barrier between the wear and tear and the sofa.
Cleaning kits are always recommended after every repair to help enable you to maintain your leather from future damage, please feel free to ask our technician any questions where they will be happy to give you any help and guidance that you require.
