As with any item in a home or office it is important to clean and take care of your furniture.  Depending on how often furniture is used it may get food particles accidentally dropped on it or liquids spilled on it.  Dirt, dust and other small objects may accumulate under pillows and in cracks and corners as well.  When it comes to hard items such as bookshelves, coffee tables, stools, stands and other furniture items, it is beneficial to dust and wipe down these items weekly.  If it is not done weekly then it is recommended to be done every two weeks.  By cleaning these furniture items you will cut down on dust which may cause other issues such as allergies.

When it comes to furniture that is encased in fabric, it is also important to clean and provide maintenance to these items every week or every two weeks.  It is always important to take the cushions off of couches and chairs and vacuum the frame of a couch or chair.  Food and other small objects will work their way into the cracks of couches and chairs and will accumulate over time.  Hair will also build up in cracks and on furniture and should be swept up not only to maintain the appearance of a piece of furniture but to keep it clean.  Cushions should also be shaken out a couple of times each month.  This will help reduce the amount of dust found within a home.

It is always important to read any ingredients on any liquid solution that you will use to clean your furniture.  What may work well on one piece of furniture may damage another piece.  It is very important to keep in mind what the fabric is made out of when using solutions on couches and chairs.  A cleaning solution used on leather may not work the same on wool or cotton.  It is also important to research the best ways to clean wood and other hard materials that are used to create furniture.  Again, one method of cleaning may not work on all objects.

It is also important that if you hire a cleaning company to come in to your home or office that you check out their credentials before hiring them.  It is vital for you and your furniture that they are using products that will clean and keep up the appearance for a long time.  Certain solutions used on furniture may cause small stains to appear or may ruin wood furniture immediately.  It is also important when cleaning furniture that you do not allow a solution to sit on fabric or wood for an extended period of time.  When using solutions purchased from a store to clean furniture, following the directions is vital.
