Restoration Philosophy

Restoring and repairing furniture is a labor of love. As a 3rd generation antiques / furniture restorer I strive to bring all of the techniques that I learned from my Grandfather into the 20th century. I do not think that I am quite ready to enter the 21st century. Old or new, modern or antique, we strive to bring out the greatest potential in your furniture and antiques, and exceed your expectations in the process.

We believe that preserving the historical integrity and originality of a piece is key to quality restoration. But a restoration project can also have personal meaning. For example, Mom wants to remember every mark on her child's high chair, except for the broken leg the movers caused. What we do is repair the break while preserving the history of her child's chair.

Every piece we work on receives comprehensive, hands-on attention including cleaning, sealing and polishing. We also offer high-quality refinishing and repair services, which you can read more about below.

Furniture Refinishing

Refinishing is the ideal solution when the existing finish is damaged or a new look or color is desired. Chem-Clean Furniture Restoration does not use a dip system to remove the old finishes. We hand strip using a flow-over system. This method ensures joints are not dried out and there is no disfiguration of wood from sitting in the dip tank of lye.

Furniture Repair

The keys to quality furniture repairs are invisibility and durability. Repairs are virtually seamless, no job should compromise the piece's historical integrity or current value. If Each repair is done so that it will not fail again under normal use. If after evaluating a piece we determine that it can not be properly repaired, we will be happy to discuss other options with you.
