With over 35 years’ worth of experience, it is important to us as a company to share our knowledge in the industry, in a greater effort to spread awareness around cost-efficient, yet sustainable renovation alternatives. In the latest edition of Defense Communities, a publication geared towards military housing and lodging professionals, Mario Insenga, president and founder of The Refinishing Touch, shares his tip on creating a greener, budget-friendly military establishment – re-upholstery.
In an article entitled, ‘The Sustainable Option – Reupholstery: The fabric of a greener military establishment’, Insenga elaborates on the many benefits of furniture re-upholstery, including:
- Cost-efficiency: Military establishment managers save on budget by avoiding movers’ fees, installation costs, and most importantly, avoiding having to buy brand new assets.
- Environmental awareness: Through re-upholstery, scrap fabric waste and wooden assets avoid making their way into the nation’s landfills. Re-upholstery also minimizes the rate of deforestation and carbon emissions.
- Minimal downtime: Our expert crews arrive on-site, and complete room renovations within a day’s time
- Meeting legislation requirements: GSA regulations (Executive Order 13242 and USC Title 40) require government agencies and establishments to implement sustainable environmental practices across renewable energy initiatives, waste management programs, construction projects and more. By investing in re-upholstery services, property managers meet such legislation.
With a wide selection of fabric in our Touch Textiles line, The Refinishing Touch prides itself in its professional furniture re-upholstery services, which can save up to 80 percent of a business’s budget. Our expert cutting and sewing processes allow for minimal scrap fabric waste, in a time-efficient manner.
Insenga summarizes the piece by stating, “The military is finding broad benefits, both green and fiscal, in re-upholstery…ultimately improving the look and function of furniture, both short- and long-term ROI, the planet, and the bottom line.”
