Hunting for the perfect piece of used furniture can be kind of fun! There are all sorts of treasures at garage sales, antique stores, and consignment stores. If you’re lucky, you may even inherit a piece of furniture from a family member or friend. There are some great deals out there just waiting to be had. No matter where you get your new treasure, we recommend cleaning it and cleaning it before you actually bring it into your home. The last thing you want to do is to bring unwanted dust into your home. Additionally, it will aid in removing any unpleasant odors that may be present.
There are many ways you can clean your used piece of furniture. Some people simply purchase cleaning wipe
s, aerosol sprays, or create their own mixture of vinegar and warm water. If you’re not the “do-it-yourself” type, contact the experts – like the team at Complete Chem-Dry of Lake Orion. We have a professional strength cleaner that will help eliminate any unhealthy dust.
Once the piece of furniture is all cleaned, the next thing you can do is to remove any unwanted odors that may accompany your new acquisition. Some of these odors may have been caused by moisture that has been trapped in the fabric. Just using fabric fresheners and deodorizers won’t ensure that the musty smell will be completely gone. Try cleaning the fabric with warm water and vinegar, or by using baking soda. Another option is to leave it up to your Chem-Dry professional to remove the smell, including pet odors.
After a thorough cleaning of your used piece of furniture, you can have peace of mind when you bring it into you home!
