Not all furniture that you will own will be brand new. A lot of people today are turning towards used furniture due to its cost affordability and quality. If you take good care of your new furniture, you can also sell it for a better price than you think. Searching for used furniture from thrift stores, garage sales, consignment stores, antique stores, online listings, and just about anywhere else you can imagine that carries and sells used furniture can be a fun experience. You never know what you’ll come across, including great deals for great pieces of furniture.

You may also receive used furniture from friends or family that is still in excellent condition. Regardless of how you get your next used furniture, it is important to ensure that the furniture is properly cleaned and disinfected before you set it up in your home. There is no way to know for sure what that furniture was exposed to and the contaminants it could have contracted. The last thing you want is to bring a lot of new bacteria and germs into your home.

How To Sanitize Used Furniture

So how exactly should you go about properly sanitizing your newly acquired used furniture? To ensure that your furniture is properly disinfected there are several ways to go about this. You can purchase sanitizing wipes, aerosol sprays, or create a mixture of vinegar and warm water. White vinegar functions as a disinfectant and even cuts through grease that could’ve been spilled on the furniture.

For the best quality sanitization of used furniture, call in the professionals of Chem-Dry of Northern Nevada who will use professional-strength sanitizer to eliminate bacteria and other particles trapped deep within the upholstery of furniture.

Our process also utilizes eco-friendly cleaning solutions to ensure that your furniture is not only clean but safe for the entire family. According to a recent study, it was found that our upholstery cleaning removes 98 percent of allergens from upholstered furniture.


Eliminate Odors

After you have taken the right steps to sanitize and clean your furniture, you may still be left with unpleasant and obnoxious odors. While it may seem tempting to go to the store to purchase fabric fresheners and deodorizers, these won’t quite do the job at removing the smell for good. Instead, try applying the mixture of vinegar and warm water or even baking soda to the affected areas for a better chance at odor removal.
