5 Easy Ways to Protect Furniture From Pets, Sycamore, Ohio

We love our pets no matter what, even when they’re less than kind to our furniture. But owning a pet doesn’t mean you’ll never be able to own nice sofas and chairs too. Below, the professionals from Cincinnati, OH’s, Lines Circles & Angles Custom Upholstery & Repair offer up a few simple methods to help you pet-proof your prized pieces. 

Safeguarding Your Furniture From Pets 

Material Matters

Pet owners on the hunt for a new couch can help themselves by choosing materials that are efficient to clean. Leather and leather synthetics are ideal because they won’t attract hair, are odor resistant, and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. If leather isn’t your ideal choice, microfiber offers many of the same benefits. 

Wipe Those Paws

Dog owners can save their furniture a stain or two by setting up a cleaning station near their front door. Having a clean towel to wipe those muddy paws off after letting your pets out is the best way to ensure filthy prints don’t wreak havoc on your upholstery. 

Designate Their Space

FurnitureOne of the top methods to preserve your items is to keep your animals off of them. You’ll need to set strict boundaries with your pet to make this happen—aid your cause by setting up a bed in a designated corner of your living room. Your pet will be less likely to pounce on your couch if they feel like they have one of their own.  

Groom & Groom Some More

Animal hair is the enemy of upholstery. You can help limit how much shedding occurs by bathing and brushing them regularly. Frequent grooming will also aid in the prevention of pet odor and leave you with a healthier, happier animal. 

Cover It Up

If all else fails, you can protect your furniture by covering it up. This could mean using plastic covers or finding a stylish slipcover. Though, odds are your pet has a preferred spot on your sofa that can simply be protected with an accent blanket. 

Of course, owning a pet means you won’t always be able to protect your favorite couch or chair.
