The Best Way to Clean Old Furniture


Shopping for used furniture can often be an enjoyable experience! There are usually some gems that are just waiting to be picked up from garage sales and antique stores. You might be lucky enough to inherit some furniture from family or friends. Nonetheless, cleaning this furniture is CRITICAL. You will want to clean and disinfect this furniture before bringing it into your living space. It’s vital that you don’t bring germs and bacteria into your home. Additionally, you’ll rid this furniture of unpleasant odors and smells.

First, make sure that the furniture is correctly disinfected. There are several ways to disinfect. Try purchasing sanitizing wipes, using aerosol sprays, or creating your own mixture! Do some research, but be thorough. You don’t want to ruin your furniture blindly following a stranger on the internet! You can always call the professionals at Chem-Dry who use professional strength sanitizers.

After sanitizing and disinfecting your furniture, the next step is to remove any unwanted odors. Because the majority of these odors are likely caused by moisture, fabric fresheners and deodorizers won’t completely get rid of the smell. Instead, try cleaning the fabric with warm water and vinegar or using baking soda. In addition, always feel free to call Chem-Dry to get these odors professionally eliminated, including pet odors.

Once you have taken these necessary steps, you will feel more comfortable bringing used furniture into your home. Enjoy your new treasures!
