How to keep your furniture looking like new for years to come

Your furniture is an important part of your home. It shows off your style, fills up empty space, and adds decor (as well as seating and sleeping arrangements!) to everyone in your home.

And just like you’d clean the rest of your home, it’s important to clean your furniture in order to keep it looking brand new. There’s nothing worse than buying a new mattress for your bed and having it look old and worn out after only a couple of years of use.

Here are some helpful tips that will help you keep your furniture looking new for years to come:

  • Heat and sunlight can be incredibly damaging to your home furniture, regardless of the type of material or fabric it is made of. These two factors can create problems such as bleaching, discoloration, fading, peeling, and flaking.  You can reduce damage from sunlight and heat by installing new blinds or curtains, covering your windows in a protective tinted film, or by rearranging your furniture for different seasons.
  • It is important to use a clean, damp cloth when dusting your furniture. Cleaning products may contain chemicals that can be harmful to your furniture’s material. Using water instead of one of these potentially hazardous products will ensure that your furniture stays clean without the damage.
  • Be cautious of the way you dust off your furniture. Using too much force may result in visible scratches or markings on your furniture. Make sure you are soft and smooth with your dusting motions.

Following these helpful tips can keep your furniture looking great.
