Polishing Furniture and Hardware

Wood furniture and metal furniture need maintenance. The furniture should be polished from time to time, but avoid the polishes that contain ammonia, as it may result in corrosion. Instead, opt for a polish with a mild abrasive. Also, ensure that while you polish the furniture, the rest of the furniture should be protected with masking tape. You should also remove the hardware on the furniture to make sure that it lasts longer.

Leather and Cushion Care

The upholstery of the sofas, couches, and plush beddings like cushions, throws, and mattresses should be regularly vacuumed and washed to slow down their aging process. Also, rotation of mattress, bedspreads, and cushions after some fixed interval is necessary. Maintaining a leather sofa is also necessary and you should dust the surface regularly. Deep cleaning of leather furniture should be timely. Firstly, dust the surface well and then a mild cleaning solution should be used. Wipe the surface and dry with a cloth.
