Room Dividers – Repair or Replacement? - Room Dividers UK
When to Repair Room Dividers
There will be some scenarios where a repair job will make more sense in the meantime. If the damage or deterioration is fairly slight, and not at all obvious, then it may be possible to simply patch over or attach some additional structural support to the divider. While this may not necessarily make the divider look brand new, that won't be as much of a problem because the visual impact of any repair is minor. Also, if the room dividers only have one side facing people, it may be possible to do simple repairs and then have the repaired side facing away from public view. This allows the divider to remain structurally intact, while also not being an eyesore.
When to Replace Room Dividers
One of the clear examples of the need to replace room dividers involves major damage. Perhaps the divider was made of light materials, and a large person accidentally crashed into it. Or maybe the divider fell down a flight of stairs during an apartment move. When the divider has sustained damage to a majority of its important parts, it may simply be best to start over. This is particularly true since many room dividers can be bought a brand new at very affordable prices.
Another example involves room dividers, which have accumulated so much dirt or grime over time, that it can make more sense to simply replace it, as opposed to subjecting it to a thorough cleaning. A divider may have been located close to the cooking area so that its surface ends up coated with a layer of grease or soot. This is going to be very difficult to clean off unfortunately. Or a divider, which was located close to a bathroom or in a damp area, may have been contaminated with mould or fungus. In situations like these, the less time-intensive and more convenient solution would simply be to replace the product.
