It is always a fun adventure looking for used furniture at garage sales or antique stores. It can be even better of you happen to inherit a piece of furniture from a relative or friend. There are some great items of furniture out there at great prices. No matter how cheap or beautiful they may be, it is smart to clean and disinfect your new furniture addition before you bring it into your home. We recommend this because you do not want germs or bacteria coming into your home. It also helps to get rid of any unpleasant odors that may accompany the piece of used furniture.
First, make sure your new piece of furniture is thoroughly disinfected. You can do this by purchasing aerosol sprays, sanitizing wipes, or by creating your own mixture of vinegar combined with warm water. Another option would be to contact John’s Chem-Dry of Whatcom County and have our trained technicians clean your used piece of furniture. We have a professional strength sanitizer that will eliminate any unhealthy bacteria.
Once your furniture is disinfected, you can focus on removing any unwanted odors. Most of these types of odors are a result of moisture that has been trapped in the fabric, or from pet odors. Simply using fabric fresheners and fabric deodorizers won’t guarantee that the musty smell will be gone. For those people who want to clean the fabric themselves, try using warm water with vinegar or baking soda. John’s Chem-Dry of Whatcom County specializes in removing unwanted odors, rather than just masking them.
You will feel a lot more comfortable bringing your used piece of furniture into your home after it is properly cleaned, sanitized, and free from any odors. Contact us today for more details!
