How To Maintain Your High End Interior Design Furnishings!
After spending a mini fortune on decorating your home with the best of
interior design furnishing, you cannot afford to compromise on its maintenance. While it may seem like a tedious task to clean and keep
the house in tip top shape during your busy schedule, it can be well worth the
effort. The following maintenance tips will help you
keep your furnishings slick and shiny throughout the year: Clean Frequently When it comes to cleaning, scrubbing, vacuuming, and
dusting your valued interiors, try to do it often. Not letting dust settle on your interiors will
help keep it vivid and fresh for a very long time. Invest in a multifunctional vacuum cleaner to clean your upholstered
furniture and curtains once a week. This should also help address spills and
spots that have the capacity to appear on the upholstery. Do Justice To Wooden Surfaces Every piece of wooden furniture demands special attention. You will often
question yourself about whether to dust, clean, or polish wooden furniture.
Ask your supplier
about how to keep your wooden furniture glossy over the long term. Some wooden pieces have a finishing that can be cleaned with a damp cloth
(do not use wet dusters on wooden surfaces) and some require a special polish,
oil, or wax. Apply the polish, oil and wax only as required, as applying in
greater quantity will make the surface smell foul and attract dust. Retain The Plush Factor Of Your Carpets Carpets are prone to obstinate dust and stains on a daily basis. A quick way
to keep your rugs and carpets looking fresh is to vacuum or brush three to four
times a week; doing it every day can be damaging for the carpet fibers. There is also the option of professional carpet
cleaning services that use carpet protectants to keep spills and stains
from settling into the carpet. This gives the home owner enough time to clean
them up. Washing or scrubbing carpets can make them lose their luster, so
utilizing such services will help in retaining their softness. Pay Attention To Flooring Looking after the carpets is not enough; you need to maintain the flooring
under the carpets and rugs as well. Keep the use of harsh chemicals restricted
to a very minimum to avoid
damageto the shine of your floors. For cleaning hardwood floors, you can mop twice a week with a diluted wood
cleaning liquid. Make sure that the mop is not too wet or it will damage the
wooden surface. Laminate floors can be cleaned daily with a dry mop. Never let any liquids stand on wooden on laminate
flooring. Marble or tile flooring can be mopped regularly with clean water and
occasionally with some antibacterial floor cleaner. Make Intelligent Purchases Make each purchase an investment by opting for interior furnishings that are
easy to clean and maintain. You can give yourself an upper hand by making smart
upholstery purchases: opt for fabrics that are less likely to catch dust and
easier to clean. Similarly, furniture with crevices and intricate details can
pose difficulty while cleaning, so opt for smooth and sleek designs that are
easy to clean and maintain. Apart from regular cleaning, your high end interiors can gain great benefit
if you let the upholstery breathe in fresh air; open the windows and let some
air in. However, save your upholstery from direct sunlight to avoid damage.
