Of all the furniture in the home, those that are in the living room are the most utilized. This is the place where the family gathers together to unwind and spend valuable time together and where we let our guests in. Everyday use of the furniture can make them look worn out easily. However, this can be prevented by keeping them tidy so they will always look fresh and new in the coming years.
The most effective way of keeping your furniture in good condition is to faithfully and religiously clean them to prevent the dirt from piling up. Use a vacuum with pliable bristles to avoid destroying your furniture. Ensure that all corners and spots will be attended to carefully.
Check the contents of your cleaning materials before you use them. There are products which have harmful substances and may cause your furniture to deteriorate. Using these products will make the furniture prone to dirt and scratches as these substances destroy the outer veneer of your furniture and make them look old and shabby.
Do not steam clean your furniture. Yes, they are effective in removing dust and filth but the aftermath is more damaging. The dampness becomes trapped in the furniture and therefore starts the appearance of unwanted fungi and other organisms that may cause your furniture to perish and may even bring you diseases as well.
Spills are inevitable on furniture but do not be alarmed. Just be ready with a rag and drench it out immediately. Start out from the outside gradually making your way in so the spill stays concentrated in its area only.
If you follow the above tips, your living room furniture will always look fresh and will last you for a number of years.
