Revive Your Living Room in 8 Steps

Whether you call it a living room, lounge, family room or something else entirely, it’s the heart of the home.

 

You spend quality family time, enjoy a glass of wine with friends and relax there after a hard day.

 

Arguable, it’s the most important room in your home.

 

So, you probably tidy and clean it quite often but how well do you clean it?

 

Taking the vacuum cleaner to it once in a while doesn’t really count as a deep clean, but putting a little extra care and attention into your cleaning efforts occasionally could make a big difference.

 

These really simple tips could help you to get the best out of your much loved living room.

 

1) Declutter

Clearing up unnecessary debris can make a big difference to how your living room looks. Make sure everything has a place and, for everything else, have a ‘clutter basket’.

 

2) Protect the sofa

Use throws and blankets to protect your soft furnishings. When they start to get dirty you can just chuck them in the wash for a freshen up.

 

3) Clean the sofa

If throws aren’t your thing or if it’s just seen better days, try cleaning it with bicarbonate of soda. Failing that, why not just hire a professional soft furnishing cleaner to give it a new lease of life.

 

4) Dust Everything

Start at the top and work your way down. Don’t forget the light shades! Lint rollers are great for catching any pet hair and stubborn dust.

 

5) Clean viewing

Use a microfibre cloth to clean the TV and other electrical screens as this won’t leave fibre particles like ordinary dusters.

 

6) Window Cleaner

Clean windows let in more light which makes the room seem brighter and bigger. You’ll be surprised what a difference it makes so go out and invest in a squeegee to make the job simpler.

7) Vacuum last

Make sure you leave the vacuuming until last so you can catch all the stirred up and settled dust from furniture.

Whether you’ve got a carpet, wooden or stone flooring, we offer a number of services that can get yours looking sparkly clean again.

 

8) Dress the room

Lastly, add the finishing touches. Scatter cushions, freshly cut flowers or scented candles are just some options for giving your room a little loving touch.

 

Now sit back and enjoy your beautiful, clean living room.
