Health and Medical
People who attend medical facilities are usually unwell, and very possibly in pain. They may also be infectious. It is therefore essential that their safety and comfort are priorities in surgeries, clinics and hospitals.
Safe and Practical Answers
Replacing worn or damaged chairs and benches in waiting areas is expensive. However, torn fabrics, worn or rotten foam, damaged springs, all pose a health risk to people who are already unwell. The answer is repair and refurbishment, and Heffernan Upholstery can offer the solution to the problem. Expertise in this case is essential, as this is a specialised area, and the choice of fabrics and the type of repairs need to be exactly right. Waiting rooms are high traffic zones, and therefore durability is required. Fabrics need to be antimicrobial and antibacterial, as well as easy to clean. At the same time, patients need to feel comfortable, and reassured, and so the ambience is also important.
Repair and Refurbish
Unless seating has been seriously damaged by, for example, fire or vandalism, it can almost certainly be restored and reupholstered to an entirely acceptable standard; Heffernan Upholstery will make it look like new at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Our expert upholsterers, seamstresses and frame repairers will take worn and damaged seating and ensure, not only that it looks attractive, but also that it complies with fire and health and safety regulations.
Once the project has been completed, the seating will be fresh, hygienic, comfortable and durable.
Patients, Doctors, Staff
No patient ever felt worse for waiting in a clean and comfortable area. Doctors and other medical and administrative staff also find it easier, and more pleasant, to work in attractive surroundings.
More than almost any other area of public life, medical facilities have to work within strict budgets. But this does not mean that standards can be allowed to fall.
It may, however, mean that buying new seating is probably too expensive, whereas restoration is probably not.
