Safeguard Your Home by Cleaning and Sanitizing Your Furniture

Due to the global Coronavirus outbreak, everyone is encouraged to spend all their time at home to decrease the spread of the virus. ​COVID-19 has made people more cautious and try to take precautions to avoid getting affected. Even though washing your hands well is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is also crucial to fight against bacteria and harmful pathogens in your home by keeping it clean.

Since everyone is in self-isolation at home, individuals should properly clean, disinfect, and sanitize household surfaces to reduce your exposure to dangerous germs and keep your family healthy.

When cleaning your home, upholstered furniture is usually forgotten. ​Make sure you keep your loved ones safe by using some of these measures in your day-to-day life. Here are some tips for sanitizing upholstery furniture.

Your Health Comes First

On a regular day basis, many people forget to clean up certain areas of their furniture. However, due to the pandemic it is important to pay very close attention to their surroundings to ensure they’re in good health. Thus, maintaining good health within self isolation is one step to take. Specifically, cleaning furniture that we spend most of our time in is very important.

Whether it's the couch that you sit on or the bed that you lay down on, the cleanliness of upholstery furniture ensures that you as well as many others can feel confident in preventing the spread of the virus. When cleaning the furniture there are a few things that are good to keep in mind:

- Start off by washing your hands with soap and water (approx ~ 20s)
- Wear gloves to protect you from harmful pathogens
- Vacuum often, especially in small areas such as the crevices
- Dusting off the furniture
- Using disinfecting products that are suitable for the material of the furniture
- Book an appointment from professional cleaners if needed
