Furniture maintenance tips

If only I had been a bit more careful and put a protective pad under my cup, my beloved furniture wouldn't be marred by these eye-catching burn marks. Seeing them sometimes ruins my mood for the whole day. Gradually, I am faced with a dilemma: should I replace my furniture or not? If I don't, I feel uncomfortable all day long. If I do, it's difficult to find furniture that matches the same style as my other pieces, not to mention the time and effort it takes to dispose of the old furniture and purchase, transport, and assemble the new pieces.

Wooden tables are prone to burns and scratches, while marble tables can show noticeable stains from juice spills...
To prevent scratches, dents, spills, high temperatures, and chemical damage, consider applying a protective film to the surface of your furniture. This will give landlords peace of mind.
Furthermore, the protective film's unique characteristics can enhance the shine of the furniture's painted surfaces, improving its overall appearance and impressing tenants.
How to apply maintenance film?
1.Clean furniture surfaces:
Firstly, clean the surface of the furniture with detergent and water several times. Remember to wipe it clean before spraying water.
2.Choose the appropriate protective film material:
The film thickness should be around 1.5mm and able to withstand temperatures of up to 176°F/80°C. The material should be able to protect the glass surface, and be translucent and easy to cut.
3.Fix the protective film:
First, spray water on the surface of the furniture to lubricate it, and then gently attach the film to the surface using a scraper. Position the film in the center and then slowly move outward from the center.
After fixing the protective film, you need to trim the edges according to the details of the furniture (the film edge should be about 5 mm shorter than the edge of the furniture). Finally, use a dry cloth to absorb any remaining water and clean the surface of the protective film.
When it comes to cost, for a 4-bedroom house of about 3,000 square feet, the cost of furniture protection materials is approximately $1,000. This investment can significantly extend the lifespan of your furniture and save a lot of expenses for the homeowner.
Although furniture protection may seem like a small matter, it can prevent many unnecessary troubles in the long run, keeping your home looking fresh and new.
