I’m ready! How do I take apart a sectional sofa?
Step One: Find a Single Piece of the Sectional That You Can Remove
If your sofa is assembled, you can remove one section from it. If not, start by removing all of the cushions and pillows before moving on to other steps. You should be able to tell which piece this is once you’ve removed anything that might obscure your field of vision.
Step Two: Remove the Cushions and Pillows
This step is a lot like Step One, but you’ll need to locate any covers that might be underneath your cushions. You should find two types of fabric – one for the seat cushion cover, another for back cushions or pillows. These are usually held together with buttons, hooks, or zippers. So be sure to remove anything that might get snagged upon disassembly.
Step Three: Take Apart the Cushions and Pillows
Unzip the covers, remove the foam or batting, and then pull out any springs. Covers may hide screws that connect the frame.
Step Four: Take Apart the Frames
You will need to use a screwdriver to take apart all of the screws holding one side of each frame together. This is so that you can rotate and separate them without damaging anything else in your sectional sofa.
Step Five: Label Your Parts
Label each part of your sectional sofa as you take it apart, and then place them all into a safe spot for storage until next time! Make sure that all screws are accounted for and kept separate from one another.
Step Six: Put it all back together
To assemble your sectional sofa, simply follow the steps in reverse order.
