One of the easiest ways to maintain your leather furniture is to keep it out of direct sunlight, since this can dry the leather and cause it to crack eventually. You can also use covers or throws to protect your leather from dirt and dust.
Sun can damage carpet. If you have carpet that receives full sun for the majority of the day, consider installing draperies or sheers to help lessen the impact. Window tinting will also help prevent fading.
Once you have brought your new rug home, read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully for recommendations on cleaning spills and spots, and what cleaning fluids to avoid. Some cleaners may stain or attract dirt.
When you vacuum your carpet, take a few extra minutes to vacuum your upholstered furniture. Remove the pads and vacuum them, and then vacuum the bed of the chairs and sofas. Use the crevice attachment to clean in the creases.
Did you know that harmful bacteria and viruses such as MRSA, Sars, Avian Flu, E. coli, and Salmonella can actually accumulate on your blinds? Regular professional cleanings of your blinds can help increase the overall healthiness of your living space.
