Love your fur babies? So do we! In order for your furniture to stay looking new, here are a few tips we recommend:
Vacuum Regularly and/or use a lint brush. Pet hair contains oil that attracts dirt. Vacuuming the hair off of your furniture twice a week will help maintain its longevity.
Don’t let your furry friends sit atop the back cushions of your sofa and chair. Back cushions not meant to be used this way; the interiors of the cushions can’t handle the weight and will breakdown much faster. (To avoid your pet from doing this while you’re away, either remove or lie down the back cushions.)
When purchasing new furniture, consider your fabric choice. Man-made materials like polyester, acrylic and crypton are durable and easy to spot clean. Crypton is a stain resistant fabric and it does not hold odors. Selecting patterned fabrics can hide pet hair and everyday wear and tear.
Leather; it’s not indestructible but can certainly be pet friendly. Leather is durable, cleans well and pet hair does not stick to it. It's important to note, however, that most leathers can scratch, but this can also create a nice patina.
