Stress Free Holiday Cleaning

Every year during the holiday season, my family visits my home. Like many people, I become frantic about beautifully decorating my home. After the tree is put up, I am always left with strewn boxes and tree needles all over the floor. Because I want everything to look perfect, I usually clean for days after decorating. This activity usually leaves me cheerless by the time my family arrives. This year, I realized that I don’t have to do this never ending chore on my own. By hiring a professional cleaning service, I can beautify my home without unnecessary stress. On this blog, you will learn about the benefits of hiring a cleaning service to help you during the holidays. Enjoy this holiday season without the work!

The Do's And Don'ts Of Used Furniture: What You Should Know

When it comes to decorating and furnishing your home, you always want to do so with the nicest pieces possible that do not break your budget. Depending on your personal taste and budget, this can be tricky. And if you are considering used furniture as an option to get the quality you want on a budget, you may not know where to start. Get to know some of the do's and don'ts of used furniture so you don't make a major mistake in the process. Then, you will be ready to go out and get the furniture you want and need.

DO Look At Estate Sales And Auctions For Vintage Furniture

If vintage and antique furniture is your style, you may know that trying to find pieces through antique stores and dealers can be frustrating and expensive. In order to try to get around that cost, you should keep an eye on newspapers and online ads for estate auctions and sales.

Oftentimes, if you are going to find a great deal on high-quality vintage furniture, it will be at these sales and auctions. Families or estate executors are motivated to sell all of the items that are available and you can place reasonable bids at auctions or barter a good price at sales. 

DON'T Buy Used Mattresses Unless You Know Where They've Been

If you didn't know, beg bugs are a real and serious problem all across the United States. They spread easily, particularly in apartment complexes where one household has them, and they are incredibly difficult to get rid of. 

As such, buying a used mattress or box spring is not a good idea simply because you cannot be sure just by looking at a garage sale, estate sale, or store if there is a bed bug infestation. The only exception would be purchasing a used bed from a close family member or friend who you can be certain does not have bed bugs. 

On top of bed bugs, mattresses can also carry a great deal of bacteria and other germs that you do not want to bring into your home. It is worth the extra cost to buy a new mattress for your bedroom. However, bed frames and non-fabric headboards can easily be purchased secondhand. 

Keep these basic do's and don'ts in mind when you are shopping for used furniture for your home and you will not go wrong. Check out a retailer like Wertz Brothers Furniture Inc to get started.
