Sofa Cushion Refilling Service

What is sofa cushion refilling?

What is sofa cushion refilling?

Sofa and couch cushion-filling services replace old, saggy looking sofa cushions infills with new feather, fibre or foam inserts.

For the best fit, it is recommended that you send your covers off to a specialist firm to refill them to your exact cover size. They will then return the refilled cushions back to you.
Most people replace their infills as it is cheaper than buying a new sofa, and reduces waste (as a whole sofa(s) going to landfill) and so it also better for the environment.

So, if your sofa filling has sagged and become squashed or unsupportive, this service is a popular choice; especially for those still fond of the colour and finish of their current sofa material.

British-made foam is high-quality and long-lasting, ideal for the sofa cushion refill technique; it springs back and does not need constant plumping or rearranging.

What is fibre and stockinette on a sofa cushion?

what is fibre and stockinette sofa cushions

Fibre (other names: wadding & dacron) is a poly fibre wrapping that is laminated to foam, it is used to add padding to a foam insert so that covers do not sag. It should be used sparingly as it is a lot cheaper than foam and overtime will compress. It is recommended to use one layer of fibre on all sides of a sofa cushion.

Stockinette is a thin netting that is covered over the foam and fibre parcel to hold it all together. It is sometimes tied on (poor craftsmanship) but should be overlocked (sewing type) onto each cushion.

When obtaining quotes please consider that sofa cushion refilling services vary considerably.

 For instance, some firms;

  • Do not add fibre and stockinette (see above) to sofa cushions.
  • Will cut a rectangle of foam without shaping it and place it into a cover and pad it out with multiple layers of fibre which compress very quickly over time leaving a saggy looking cushion within a few weeks.
  • Will glue off-cuts of foam together to make a larger piece which over time will break down leaving a cushion with sinking parts and structural weaknesses that cause discomfort and leaning to one side causing back issues.

Make sure the foam that is used in your new cushions is British made (superior quality and will last a lot longer) & meets British fire standard BS5852. This will not only protect your home insurance should there be a fire, but it could also be the difference between keeping your family safe in the event of a fire in the home.  Putnams only use British made foam.
CertiPur foam is also preferable if possible as it has been tested for toxins and is better for you and your family’s health.

All our sofa cushion refills:

  • Come with a thin layer of fibre wrapped over every side of a cushion.
  • Come with an overlocked stockinette cover for easy removal and reinsertion when you need to wash or clean covers.
  • Do not sag over time.
  • Are made from British made foam that meets British fire standard BS5852.
  • All our foam is CertiPur.
  • Are expertly hand crafted by trained professionals in our Devon based factory.

How long does sofa cushion refilling take?

This can vary, some companies can take a few days (3-5) some can take a few weeks (2-3). It is always advised that you check this with a company before ordering. It can also vary depending on the quality of the finish. As mentioned above some companies can do an inferior job that leaves covers saggy, while others over-stuff with fibre which very quickly will compress and leave covers saggy a few months down the line.

At Putnams our turnaround time on refilling cushion covers does vary depending on how busy we are. Our average wait is 5 working days.  Please do call us on 01752 345678 if you would like to check.

  • Putnams have recently placed new cushions in my DFS sofa seat covers, they have done an amazing job, the cushions are so comfortable, the sofa looks smart again, they even came back earlier than predicted. It’s an absolute treat not to have to continually try to plump the cushions up!! Thank you very much Putnams, I will definitely use you again, and would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
