he furniture you buy for your home is a true investment — quality pieces you hope will last for years to come. In many cases, the difference between furniture that lasts and furniture that doesn’t is maintenance. That’s why it’s so important to learn how to care for your sofas, chairs, and tables.
When it comes to furniture, proper care starts with understanding the different materials used in various pieces. Certain cleaning methods will be most appropriate for each type. The way you clean leather, for example, will differ from the way you clean wood. There also are specific preventative maintenance practices you can use to extend the life of your pieces. For example, it’s important to get in the habit of regularly vacuuming your upholstered furniture and also rotating the cushions every few months. For wood furniture, regular dusting is essential to protecting the finish from getting scratched or dulled over time. And if you have a leather chair, protect it from UV rays.
