When planning your furniture repair kit it's important to note what types of repair and maintenance issues you may face in the future. Here's a list of the top 3 most common to get us started!
- The hinges on computer and executive style desks can become loose and need to be tightened.
- Over time, office chairs can develop a wobble from the under seat mechanism.
- Common wood and metal file cabinets often encounter basic drawer jams.
The first thing you'll need when creating a furniture repair kit for your business is a container. While a tool box is recommended, if you're looking to save on costs a sturdy cardboard box will do the job.
Once you've located a container it's time to create a tool checklist. This will help you to ensure you have the proper items needed to handle basis maintenance and repairs. Stumped as to what you'll need? No problem! That's what we're here for!
Must Have Tools for Furniture Repair Kits:
- Assorted Screwdrivers
- Socket Set
- Tape Measure
- Cordless Drill
- Allen Wrenches
In addition to the basic tools you'll also want to keep the instructions from your past furniture installations on hand. While most throw these valuable sheets out with the packing materials, replacements can be obtained through the associated manufacturer. As a rule of thumb, if you keep your assembly instructions and tools included with products organized in the same bag you'll be effectively prepared for nearly any repair job faced in the future.
Last but not least you'll want to keep a few basis cleaning supplies in your repair kit. It's important to remember that desks and tables for office use attract dust like nobody's business. A simple wipe down rag, bottle of surface cleaner, and duster is recommended to keep your space looking tip top.
