Christmas, The Ideal Time To Think About School Chair Repair

The run-up to Christmas is naturally a busy time for schools – the end of another term, of course, but there’s also the added seasonal activities to contend with; with parties, shows and nativity plays being a fixture of the season, most schools will be playing host to a large number of visitors over the coming weeks.

An upturn in visitors acts as a reminder that the school must give off a great impression – as well as comfort. So whilst pupils are away for Christmas, why not consider school chair repair to provide your educational facility with comfortable and functional seating for the future?

The Importance of School Chair Repair

Away from the obvious need to provide a positive impression on visitors, the comfort and functionalities of the everyday school chair are important to allow pupils (and staff) to feel engaged with their environments and to be able to get on with their work without feeling distracted.

For pupils, a school is a place of learning; an arena in which they can develop and grow their abilities. Distractions are easy enough to come by in school – but they do not need to be accentuated by poor quality furniture that offers an uncomfortable experience. Not only could better chairs help a pupil feel comfortable and content with their surroundings, but it will allow them to concentrate on their work; engaging them, providing them with inspiration and interest.

For staff, the school is a workplace – and like any workplace, great facilities will more often than not, produce great work. The engagement aspect of a classroom’s comfort is vital for staff – an engaged class of pupils will help them to get across their teachings better. Everyone approaches their work with the intentions of making a great impact – and with teaching, especially, having such an influence on the development of people, seeing their positive contribution to their pupils’ lives will help staff to feel empowered and happy with their work.

But whether it’s through sheer age or regular wear-and-tear, school seating frequently needs to be taken out and replaced – often at cost. This is what makes school chair repair so advantageous – such a service can repair, reupholster or even reimagine the design of a particular chair, providing it with a new lease of life.  The savings it can make may be huge – savings that would be far better repurposed back into school funds to provide other, crucial services that may help pupils on a better path to achieving academic excellence.

So, if you run your own educational facility, why not consider gifting it the benefits of better quality seating this Christmas?

"....... we are having a Channel 4 documentary made on Premier and we needed to be spruced up Waldron's came up trump! We needed our three piece sofas and chairs recovered within a week! We now have the most beautiful suit recoved looking brand new and we are delighted with the results. Waldron's always do a superb quality job on all our refurbishments and never let us down."

"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time.......... Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair. I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact the chair looks better than it did before I am so pleased that I have found Waldrons and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone i have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."
