At Short Stop Chem-Dry, we appreciate a good garage sale or antique store as much as the next person. You never know who you may inherit a new piece of furniture from, for a great deal. However, it’s still important to protect your family from dust or grime that may be handed down to you with that furniture. Clean your furniture before you take it into your home, both to keep your home safe and to rid the used sofa of unpleasant smells.
First off, you’ll need to make sure that your sofa is cleaned the correct way. There are many ways to do this, ranging from cleaning wipes, aerosol sprays, or homemade mixtures of vinegar and water. Another option is to call in professionals like Short Stop Chem-Dry to revamp your furniture with our professional strength cleaner.
After you have cleaned and cleaned your furniture, you can begin removing any unwanted odors. Many of these smells are caused by the moisture that has been trapped in the fabric or pet odors, and, unfortunately, fabric fresheners and deodorizers won’t get rid of the musty smell. Instead, you should try cleaning the fabric with warm water and vinegar or using baking soda or calling Short Stop Chem-Dry who specializes in eliminating unwanted odors, not just masking them including pet odors.
These necessary steps will result in a more comfortable piece of furniture that looks and smells like a treasure in your home!
