About Furniture Medic
Furniture Medic is much more than just a furniture repair company.
Established as a furniture repair business in 1992, Furniture Medic is the largest and most respected furniture and
wood damage and restoration company in the world, with over 300 locations across Canada, the United States
and United Kingdom.
Combined with the professionalism of our teams and ability to perform on-site repairs, Furniture Medic remains in high demand today. Whether it's residential or commercial repairs and restorations, Furniture Medic extends the life of furniture and fixtures through a variety of water-based, chemical free products that meet the standards set by governing agencies. Additionally, once the job is done, all products are disposed of responsibly for the best results – and peace of mind for our customers.
Furniture Medic has a skill set that applies to the restoration of all wood products, including hardwood floors. We have the ability to work closely with restoration firms, home owners and commercial businesses when floods, fire and other natural disasters plague homes or other properties.
The core idea of the business is to restore furnishings to their original beauty with as little or no impact as possible on the environment. By repairing rather than replacing furniture, disposal of old furniture is limited but our skills go beyond furniture repair.
“Some of our guys (franchisees) will even build furniture. They do lots of on-site repairs, restoring objects to almost new condition. As an example, we restore kitchen cabinets, we do upholstery, and we work on casinos, restaurants, and movie theatres. It's a very broad range. The technicians also repair buildings, anything to do with wood. We've done doors and even repaired pews in churches," says Susan McGowen, Business Leader, Furniture Medic of Canada.
National Franchise Sales Manager Terry Hould says the success of Furniture Medic is firmly rooted in its dedication to providing customers with unparalleled craftsmanship and quality service in wood restoration and upholstery repair.
Furniture Medic is owned by ServiceMaster of Memphis, Tennessee, which acquired the company in 1996. In addition to its Canadian operations, which were established in 1953 in Toronto, ServiceMaster has 7,300 franchises and company-owned locations around the world.
It is one of the world's largest residential and commercial disaster services networks with more than 8.5 million customers and annual revenue of more than $6 billion.
