What Type of Products Should I Buy to Clean Furniture?

There are two main categories of furniture in most homes - upholstered and wood. Each type of furniture has its own special cleaning methods. There are many commercially available cleaners on the market for both. We recommend purchasing a quality brand name product - saving on an off-brand may be cheap in the short term, but the quality is worth it. Follow the instructions on the product carefully, making sure to test on an inconspicuous area first.

Furniture Cleaning Tips

Keep your furniture clean with regular dusting and vacuuming. This task should be performed at least every other week, and perhaps weekly if your furniture is used often. When you need to wax or clean your furniture, keep these tips in mind:

1. Follow the manufacturer's instructions precisely.
2. Put wax or cleaner directly on the cloth and work in small areas.
3. Complete the task by giving the furniture one last wipe, in direction of the grain.

Furniture is expensive and requires extra attention from time to time. When your furniture needs more than a regular vacuuming, we recommend professional furniture cleaning. You can trust Molly Maid to clean your furniture, and your home, the way you would if you had the time. Our residential housekeepers  not only use quality products, they care about your home.
