Spring sofa is very soft and comfortable to seat when you are with your family to watch TV,and when the winter will be warm when you sit on it.However, over several years of use, the sofa can start to sag,Fixing this issue is simple with the right tools.

So,how to fix sagging sofa springs?

Step 1

Determine why your couch is sagging. A sagging couch could be the result of worn out cushions, old springs, or a bad frame.
If the problem is the cushions, you're in for an easy fix. If the cushions seem fine upon inspection, you may have to replace the springs or the frame. Depending on the level of damage you may need to replace the entire couch.

Step 2

Take pictures. Before you start taking your couch apart, take some pictures so you have something to refer to. If you can, take the pictures to a local furniture repair shop and see if they can help you determine the problem.

Step 3

Inspect the frame of the sofa. Remove all the sofa cushions and turn the couch over so that you can see the bottom. Look for torn fabric and broken or rotted wood.
If you see any cracked wood, or wood that is "bowed" out, you'll need to replace it. This will involve taking off most of the upholstery fabric and can be time consuming.
You may have to remove some of the fabric on the bottom, known as a dust cover, to inspect the springs. Be gentle and take care not to rip the fabric.

Step 4

Cut the batting into shape and layer it over the cushion filling of your choice. Make sure to use "sheets" of batting. Cut to the seat size, and wrap the cushions a few layers thick. Remember to smooth it over, otherwise you may create a lumpy seat.

Step 5

Replace the cushion covers. Once you've repaired your cushions you can place them back in their covers. Sit on the couch to make sure the cushions were the only issue with the sagging couch. If the couch still sags, inspect the frame again.
