I purchased a new couch from Lazy Boy. On one of the cushions there is a lump from front to back. This of course happened after the guarantee had expired. Is there a way to rid the cushion of this lump?

If the covers on the cushions have an opening in them you can buy foam rubber in different thicknesses, that can be cut to size when you purchase it. You will just have to know the size that you need. I don't know what all types of businesses sell this. Where I live, I know for sure there is one hardware type store that sells all thicknesses of foam rubber by the yard.

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do.

Sometimes the inside of the cushion just twists, leaving what looks like a lump outside the cushion cover. Unzip the cushion cover, reach in, and smooth out the cushion inside, or if the inside cushion turned or rotated, turn it back where it's supposed to be (you'll have to do this slowly a bit of a turn at a time).

One more thing, if all else fails, you can take the cushion to an upholsterer, who can either fix it or place a new cushion inside the outer cover to get rid of the lump. It would cost less than replacing the sofa and may be worth the price due to your frustration over the problem.

If the cushion doesnt have a zipper, which most don't, you will have to cut the cushion open in a non conspicuous area, straighten the area out. You may want to add some layers of flat quilt batting, then stitch the area closed with a half circle needle and button thread. You can also do this to the arm areas with batting and just re-stuff them. It works good, I watched the repair man repair several. Good luck.

I wanted to find out if there is a way to replace the fill in my couch cushions so they are not lumpy. I have two children and two dogs that really take a toll on our sectional sofa. The pillows and the cushions for the back of the couch have zippers, which is great when you need to periodically need to replace the fill and clean the cushions, but I can seem to get the lumps out. Any ideas? Thanks a bunch.

I hope someone submits some ideas! I'm having the same problem with lumpy filling in my dog beds. It starts out just fine, but soon aggregates into clumps...

I'm not sure if you could do this or not, depending on if you could remove the cover. But, my husband works for a factory that makes foam for mattresses, among other things and you can get scrap foam from a place like this for really cheap and sometimes free. $2-$4 for a cushion. you can measure one and maybe call a place that sells mattresses in your area and they could help you locate a factory, or possibly they would have some ideas. Probably even just a regular furniture store could give you some ideas. Hope this helps.
