Vacuum Regularly

You probably already know the importance of regular vacuuming in your home; it removes the dirt and dust from the surface of your carpets, keeping them fresh and clean. But did you know that you can also vacuum your furniture’s upholstery?

Like carpet, upholstery accumulates dust that can become embedded in its fibers if not removed regularly. Vacuuming your upholstery every week or so will save you the trouble of removing that dirt later.

Protect Wooden Furniture

If you have any wooden tables in your living room, it’s important to know how to clean and protect them. Like other furniture, wooden furniture needs to be dusted regularly, as the small dust particles can scratch and damage the wood over time.

If your tables need a more thorough cleaning, use a gentle cleaning solution that won’t damage the finish of the wood. Water stains from cups are one of the prime suspects in damaging wood tables, so be sure to protect your wooden tables from water damage.

Clean Your Upholstery

In addition to vacuuming your upholstery, it’s a good idea to give it a more thorough cleaning every so often. To give your upholstery a deep cleaning, purchase an upholstery cleaner that’s safe for the material of your furniture.

Test out the cleaner on a small part of the furniture’s surface to ensure that it won’t stain. Any leather furniture in your home should be conditioned every 6-12 months to prevent against drying and cracking.

Hire a Professional

Sometimes you just can’t get your furniture as clean as you’d like on your own. If your living room furniture or rugs are noticeably dirty or have never been professionally cleaned, it’s probably time to call a professional.

Professional services use special equipment and methods to give your furniture a deeper cleaning than can be achieved through spot cleaning with household cleaning products. A good rule of thumb is to have your living room furniture professionally cleaned at least once a year.

Learning how to maintain your living room furniture is essential to keeping this central room of your home spotless and organized. The payoff of proper maintenance is worth the effort and it will keep your furniture beautiful and functional for years to come.
