We are sure that everyone agrees that having to do bulky rubbish removal is a complete bind. Being heavy and awkward, bulky rubbish is hard to carry and dispose of. On top of this, if you want to do it through the right channels you have to carry it out to the pavement early on a given day and hope that it will be removed.
Or you can ask a junk removal specialist to do it. Given you have these choices, it’s still a good idea to try and prolong the life of your possessions to avoid this- especially in the case of furniture. Being expensive and particularly large generally, moving furniture should be avoided as far as possible.
Furniture removal is normally a job for professionals and if you are thinking of moving a piece of furniture, be prepared for a potentially back-breaking incident. No one would dream of relocating their own home when they know that hiring a removal company is the answer. Similarly with old furniture: leave it to a licensed waste management company nearby to remove and dispose of.
Being professionals in the business of waste management and junk removal, Junk Removal Wirral should be your first choice if you live in the Wirral area. We do almost every kind of junk removal- bulky rubbish removal included.
While the term bulky rubbish refers to many large items requiring junk removal, like a hot tub, refrigerator, or mattress, furniture is most common, and it fills most of the home.
Most furniture can be recycled, which is good news. But still, if you can extend the life of your furniture, it is even better.
Extending the Lifespan of Household Furniture
Furniture makes the interior of a house livable. It is used every day and needs constant attention to prevent wear and tear. It is far cheaper to maintain furniture, rather than to replace it. So, it makes sense to save money by keeping your furniture in good shape and avoid it getting damaged.
Knowing how to care for your furniture will put it in good stead for an extended lifespan and prolong the need to replace it and have to do furniture removal and disposal. Here are some tips on maintaining your furniture:
- Regular Cleaning
Ingrained dirt is hard to see at times, and with all the use, furniture quickly becomes dirty. Therefore, it is essential to do regular cleaning to ensure that your furniture remains pristine and clean.
The best way to do this is to have a regular schedule, otherwise, it is easy to forget to clean the furniture. If you are unsure about the best way to do this, we suggest you call a professional furniture cleaner. Once you know how it is done, you can do it yourself from then onwards.
Take special care with leather furniture, as you wouldn’t want to use the wrong cleaning materials on these expensive items. You will notice the furniture will gain a nice fresh smell and rejuvenated look once you have done the cleaning.
- Guard against Spillage, Stains, and Marking
Spillage and stains can happen anytime, and when it is least expected. Unless of course, you have children or grandchildren who love to sit on your couch. Then accidental spillage is much more likely.
Simply apply some stain proofing to your furniture pieces to make it easy to remove and eliminate the danger of spillage, resulting in a permanent mark on your furniture. This will be particularly applicable to the couch and upholstered furniture.
- The Pets
We love our pets, and they love us. They particularly love to lie or sit where we do. And even if you are not at home the chances are that they will sneak up onto the sofa or jump on the bed, especially if it is cold. What do you do?
The problem is that if you don’t control the situation the furniture will start smelling and looking worn and dirty. This needs to be avoided, either by adding a protective covering that you can remove and clean regularly or limiting the places that they can use. Alternatively, put your foot down and impose a ban on lying on the furniture.
- Repair Damage When It Happens.
Some furniture will last longer than others depending on its quality. So, it’s good to invest in furniture made from superior materials. When furniture is damaged, such as a leg breaking, or the seat gets torn, it is best to fix it straight away before further damage occurs.
- Move With Care
One of the most common ways that furniture gets damaged is through movement. The problem normally arises when the furniture is dragged from one spot to another. This is always necessary too, for cleaning.
However, the result can be chipping or broken legs, so the answer is to get assistance when you do have to move your furniture around the house.
- Be on the Lookout for Pests
Pests like termites are silent destroyers. Be always vigilant for them, especially those that like to bore into wood. You wouldn’t like to discover that these tiny insects have been eating away at your furniture unknowingly.
- Don’t Use the Wrong Cleaning Materials
Be gentle with your furniture when cleaning. Strong bleaching agents should be avoided on the upholstery, and the right wood polish is to be used to treat the wooden parts. Always check the labeling on the cleaning materials to see if they match the furniture manufacturer’s cleaning specifications.
