Purchased Furniture For Your New Home? Simple Instructions For Protecting Your Investment

If you're going to be buying stickley furniture for your new house, you're going to want to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Furnishing an entire home is a big investment. You'll want to do everything you can to protect it. Here are some simple steps to care for your new wood, leather, and upholstered furniture.

Wood

If treated properly, your fine wood furniture can turn into an heirloom that can be passed down through generations. The tips provided below will help you care for your fine wood furniture.

Avoid the Sun

Heat and direct sunlight can destroy your fine wood furniture. To avoid damage, be sure your wood furniture is not placed in front of windows that are exposed to direct sunlight, or near heater vents.

Clean Carefully

Wood furniture should be dusted with a soft cloth at least once a week. Heavy dust build-up can scratch the wood surface. Once a month, you should wash your wood furniture with a concentration of water and oil soap. Oil soap will remove dirt and grease, and restore the luster to your wood furniture. Because cleaning instructions are different for all types of oil soaps, follow label instructions for proper usage. 

Upholstered

Your upholstered furniture will also require special care. Here are a couple of things you can do to extend the life of your couches.

Vacuum

If you have upholstered furniture, you willwant to vacuum the cushions at least once a week. Dirt and sand can get pressed into the fabric, which can destroy the threads and cause your furniture to wear out too quickly.

Flip and Switch

Sitting on one specific section of a couch can cause uneven wear and tear. To prevent your upholstered furniture from being worn down from overuse, it's a good idea to rearrange your furniture from time-to-time and to flip the seat cushions.

Leather

If you've purchased leather furniture for your new home, you'll need to protect it from damage. Here are two ways to preserve the look of the leather.

Avoid Heat

Heat can cause leather furniture to dry out and crack. To prevent damage, you should keep your furniture away from heat such as furnace registers or fireplaces.

Keep it Clean

To preserve the luster of your leather furniture, give it a light dusting once a week with a soft cloth. It's also important that you remove the cushions and vacuum to remove dirt and dust. In addition, applying a leather preservative once a month will help extend the life of your furniture.

Now that you've purchased new furniture for your home, protect it from wear-and-tear using the simple tips provided here.
