If you are going to be moving to a new home soon and have some expensive pieces of velvet furniture that need to be stored inside of a rental unit for a while, learn how to to prepare them for storage with the following tips. Once doing so, you can rest assured that your belongings will remain in excellent shape and can be used immediately once they are removed from the unit and placed in your new home.

Clean Pieces Prior To Storing

Mix a small amount of mild detergent with water and apply the cleaning solution to stains on each piece of furniture with a scrub brush that has natural bristles. Brush the material in the direction of the material's pile. Once stains are eliminated, rinse the brush out with plain water and move it over the same sections.

Once all of the stains have been eliminated, allow the pieces of furniture to air dry, or dry the fabric in a shorter amount of time by moving a hair dryer over each piece for several minutes. Eliminating stains will reduce the risk of mildew forming while pieces are stored in a unit, especially if food products or drinks have been spilled onto the fabric.

Attach Moisture-Proof Slipcovers

Most storage units are designed to protect items from moisture, but moisture-proof slipcovers can add piece of mind while protecting fine pieces of velvet furniture, ensuring that they will remain damage-free for the length of time that they are stored. Slipcovers can be purchased from a furniture retailer and can be sized so that they fit a specific piece of furniture. Many covers have stretchy fabric attached to the edges of them. Once a cover is placed over a piece of furniture, it won't shift and will prevent damage indefinitely, until it is removed.

Secure Leg Covers

The legs that are attached to large pieces of furniture, such as couches or full-sized chairs, may be overlooked at times, due to their small size in comparison to large pieces. These pieces need proper protection, however, especially since they are essentially responsible for supporting the weight of an individual who uses a particular piece of furniture. Wooden legs or materials that are easily scratched can be covered with large socks or thick pieces of batting material that are secured by strips of masking tape.

By utilizing all of these tips, your velvet pieces of furniture will remain damage-free and will be ready for use as soon as you move them into your new residence. Contact a company like Allen's Transfer to learn more.
