Many people love going to garage sales, consignment stores, thrift shops, and antique stores to look for furniture. Sometimes the furniture may need a bit of a touch-up, but you can often find some great furniture at an incredible price! Whether you find a hidden treasure at a store, or even if a friend just gives you his old couch, there is something you should do before taking the furniture back home – clean it. You have no idea the amount of dust that are on that furniture.

There are a few different approaches to cleaning a piece of furniture. You can purchase aerosol spray, cleaning wipes, or create a home-made mixture using vinegar and warm water. The most effective option would be to call the professionals at Complete Chem-Dry of Lake Orion, who will come apply their professional-grade cleaner which will eliminate virtually all the dust.

When the furniture has been cleaned, you may want to do something to get rid of that nasty smell the couch still puts off. Odors are often caused by moisture trapped in the fabric. Pets are also another cause of odor. With odors like this, fabric fresheners and deodorizers might cover them up for a few hours, but they will not get rid of the odor. You need to clean the furniture – not just mask the smell. You can do this on your own using warm water and vinegar or using baking soda. If you don’t want to do it yourself, you should call Complete Chem-Dry of Lake Orion, the experts of upholstery cleaning and eliminating pet and other unwanted odors.

Now that you’ve taken these important steps, you can feel completely comfortable brining your new treasure into the living room for your family to enjoy!
