Prevent Wear and Tear On Furniture

To avoid premature wear and tear of your furniture, follow a few simple rules. Follow the instructions on cleaning the furniture. Most furniture will come with cleaning instructions or have a tag. Dust and vacuum regularly because dust allowed to accumulate in fabrics can do permanent damage. Protect your furniture from the sun. Rotate it on a regular basis to even out wear and tear. Also, control the humidity and temperature in the home. Taken together these rules will maximize the life of your furniture.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cleaning your furniture is essential in keeping it good shape, but if you go about it the wrong way, it can have the inverse effect. Research the materials your furniture is made out of so that you know how to clean that specific fabric or type of wood.
  • Letting dust, debris, dirt, and grime build up on your furniture will not help your efforts to keep it looking sharp, so it’s important to make dusting and vacuuming a part of your regular cleaning routine.
  • Overexposure to sunlight can cause leather to dry out, crack and fade, fabric to lose its coloration, and wood to become discolored and its finish to crack.

“Furniture naturally deteriorates over time, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to prevent wear and tear on your favorite pieces.”
