The time comes when you need to make a decision. Should I call my local junk removal company to have that old furniture removed or can I salvage it? You could have bought that lovely old sofa with the hopes of restoring it or maybe your comfortable old armchair has been sitting in the garage too long and smells so bad you can never imagine anyone would want to use it again. We even accumulate old furniture in our office. We help with office furniture too!
Before you call us to remove your old furniture here are some tips that may help you bring it back to life.
Remove Smells from Old Furniture
Good old water and vinegar-Add 1/8 cup white distilled vinegar to a spray bottle. Then add two cups of warm water and wallah; you have your stinky old furniture cleaner.
For wood furniture just spray the surface and wipe clean. If you are cleaning upholstered furniture use the same solution. I suggest timing this cleaning for when you have a steam cleaner with a furniture attachment. It will make it easier to soak up the excess water.
Restore old Furniture
To restore wooden furniture we are going to use vinegar again. : Just mix 1/8 cup vinegar, 1/8 cup flaxseed oil and ¼ cup fresh lemon juice. Easy Smeezy!! And use a soft cloth and to wipe down the wooden surface.
Cleaning and Disinfecting Old Mattresses
Another quandary we may be challenged with is whether to have an old mattress removed, use it for another year or put it in the guest bedroom. Here is a simple way to clean and disinfect your mattress. If this does not restore the mattress I doubt anyone should be sleeping on it anyway. In that case, call Junk It Junk Removal or if you do not live in the Portland Metro area call another trusted junk hauler in your area.
Again we are going to use vinegar and water. Simply use equal parts vinegar and warm water. Wash the mattress down using a sponge or washcloth. We are then going to sprinkle baking soda over the mattress and allow it to dry. It is best if you can let it sit for at least 8 hours. When it is dry just vacuum it up!!
