Furniture Maintenance Services
How many times has this happened before? Even if it hasn’t, you get the idea. Furniture maintenance is
It was only a year ago that the game Home Improvisation, which lampoons the issue, was developed for the 2015 Global Game Jam.
In September 2015, actor Ryan Reynolds posted a video to GQ that featured his abortive attempt to build a crib purchased from the furniture store.
In short, assembling Ikea furniture is an enormous headache – and one you don’t want to subject yourself to unless it is absolutely necessary.

Buying new furniture is fun; it’s like buying new clothing, only for your home. It usually ends with your family cruising home triumphantly, anticipating the appearance of the new furniture.
That is, of course, unless they’ve been around this block before. If they have and they know what often follows, then the ride back is marked by anticipation of arguments, despair and occasionally a few conversations about separation or divorce.
Now imagine if every time you went through this, you could skip over the bad vibes and right to the part where the furniture is all assembled properly, looking amazing and every piece is exactly where you’d like to see it. Book our team and you can consider that dream a reality.
There’s something even more frightening than the prospect of assembling a new set of Ikea furniture, and that’s watching it fall apart. Thought the assembly itself was frustrating? Imagine watching all of that stress and rage go to waste because the screws weren’t in tight enough.
You might laugh, you might cry and you might develop homicidal tendencies. Whatever the case may be, you don’t want this to happen.
The solution is semi-regular maintenance – re-tightening or replacing the hardware, and even completely reassembling the unit(s) for better performance.
You might say that you shouldn’t have to do this, and we’d agree. The simple fact, however, is that you do – even Ikea admits it: “The product will keep longer by retightening the screws from time to time.”
- Re-tighten the screws and fixtures of every unit, making them function better and longer.
- Replace and even upgrade the hardware if necessary.
- Sanding down the older pieces and then repainting or resurfacing them to restore their former beauty.
Why do we do it?
Assembling and maintaining furniture are very small projects, and it isn’t often that they take more than an hour.
Unlike other companies who are happy to charge you for three or even four hours of work when they were in and out in little more than twenty minutes, we are proud of our one-hour minimum fee and plan to stand by it.
What’s in it for us, then, to offer these services? The answer is simple: there is widespread demand. You are more than “billable hours” to the Odd Job team, and you still matter to us after you’ve paid.
Odd Job was born in Toronto in 2008, and since then we have been local to the core. We service locally and we hire locally.We hang art, assemble furniture and take care of other headaches because they’re just that – headaches.
We are friends and neighbours helping friends and neighbours – we just haven’t met all of you yet. You’re very welcome to change that!
