You are proud of your beautiful high end furniture, and you want to take good care of it so it will keep looking its best for many years. Here are 7 simple things you can do to maintain your beloved high end furniture.
1. Follow the manufacturer’s care instructions
When you purchase high end furniture, it should come with instructions to help you maintain it, and perhaps with suggestions of products you should use to clean it. It would be a good idea to follow these instructions carefully.
2. Vacuum your furniture
Whether you have upholstered or leather high end furniture, you should vacuum it regularly to easily make dust and loose dirt disappear. As you vacuum, you should also rotate and plump up loose cushions to reduce wear.
3. Wipe your furniture clean
Leather furniture is relatively easy to clean. Wiping it with a clean cloth once a week might be enough. For upholstered furniture, use a mixture of water and dish detergent in a spray bottle to clean it regularly. Be sure to test your mixture on a small hidden spot before wiping it all over your furniture.
4. Take care of spills as quickly as possible
The only way to completely prevent spills on your upholstered or leather furniture is to never eat or drink while you are sitting in them. If you do spill something, use a clean cloth to blot and absorb the liquid before it soaks in.
5. Keep leather furniture away from the sun
Be sure to keep your leather furniture away from direct sunlight to prevent it from drying, cracking or fading. You should also avoid placing your leather furniture near heat sources like radiators or fireplaces.
6. Wipe dust from your wood furniture
Using a moistened clean cloth to wipe dust off your wood furniture is something you should do regularly. When you are done, use a dry cloth to wipe the furniture dry. For dirt build ups, use a damp cloth with some mild soap to clean the furniture before wiping it dry.
7. Schedule cleaning with professionals
If you are unable to make ugly stains disappear from your high end furniture, you should contact professionals who will come to your rescue and clean it for you. They should also help you regularly maintain your furniture in the future.
