Make Your Rugs and Upholsters Look as New with These Tips

Nobody can stop bacteria, dirt and dust from inhibiting their rugs and furniture. Maybe superheroes can! Sadly, we mortals can’t just suddenly awaken microscopic visions, purification magic and the likes! But who said we’re just powerless? There are always tricks and tips that we can effectively use against these household catastrophes.

Here are some ways that will help you prolong your furniture’s life and keep it looking as good as new even after years of use.

A vacuum a day, keeps the dust away!

It would be very hard and irritating if dust and dirt accumulate, especially if you have carpet flooring, so it is best if you regularly clean your floor to prevent the trouble dust and dirt gives to you and your furniture.

Baking soda – a fighter against bad smell

Upholsters usually tend to absorb foul smells from natural gases, spillages, pets and many more unwanted dirt and bacteria. This might turn into an unpleasant and bad smell. And baking soda is akin to its predator, taking down those unpleasant smells until nothing remains. You can apply baking soda to your rugs and furniture which can greatly help maintain their good shape.

Wash it then dry it, that’s how you do it!

It is basic knowledge that your rugs and furniture need proper cleaning. Let us emphasize the word ‘proper’. it is important to wash and dry your rugs and upholsters thoroughly to prevent the growth of mould and bacteria – organisms that are detrimental not only to your rugs and upholsters, but to your health as well.

Pick the right vacuum cleaner

Imagine opening a can, with a kitchen knife and a can opener at your disposal. Which tool can give you better and easier results? Of course, it would be the can opener! The same goes for cleaning your rugs and furniture, with appropriate tools such as vacuum cleaner with features and functions that meet your carpet’s cleaning needs, you can achieve twice the results with just half the effort.

Ice is not just for your soda or juice

Discovering a chewing gum or wax on your carpet can be very frustrating. But do you know that as simple as an ice cube can actually get rid of them? Here’s what you need to do.

Use a few ice cubes to make the gum or wax cold and hard. This method will make them so easy to remove as gum and wax contracts on becoming cool, so it will leave the surface free from dirt. Another method to try is take a piece of dry cloth and iron it. Once the cloth is heated, use it to remove the wax.

Use other green cleaning methods

Besides baking soda and ice cubes, there are endless choices of environmentally-friendly cleaning products to use for your DIY rug and upholstery cleaning. You may also hire a professional green cleaning business if you want a quick and safe results without having to lose some sweats. Professional cleaners can provide the most suitable solution to your cleaning needs using environmentally safe products.
