Got Cats? Tips for Protecting Your Furniture from Scratches and More

cat on damaged chairWhen we think about home, we probably think about a number of things; our family, our furniture, our pets, our safe places. However, when we think about our furniture and our pets, it can be a bit stressful, especially if you own cats. Now, we’re definitely cat and dog people, but we’d be lying if we said our cats were perfect creatures. Just like dogs can ruin our carpets, cats can do quite a bit of damage to our furniture with their claws.

At National Furniture Liquidators, not only are we passionate about pets but we’re also passionate about furniture, and we know it takes work to make the two live together harmoniously, especially when we own kitties that like to use their claws. These tips can help you better protect it, so you all can live under one roof harmoniously.

#1: Cover it Up

Sometimes, doing something as simple as putting a tablecloth on your table or adding some decor can keep your cats off the furniture, keeping them scratch-free. Some items, such as the tablecloth, may also add an extra layer of protection for when they do. Plus, tablecloths and other decor can make your home look cuter and more spruced up. It’s a win-win situation.

#2: Give Your Cat Something Else to Scratch

Adding scratch posts, beds, and towers for your cat can give them an extra place to scratch and a good place for them to hangout, keeping them off the furniture and their claws something else to scratch. Cats are sweet babies and deserved to be spoiled anyways, and buying them these things will accomplish just that while also distracting them from the beautiful furniture you’ve bought from our store. Again, it’s a win-win situation.

#3: Get Creative With It

Sometimes, no matter what we do, our cats and their sharp claws can’t be stopped, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of whatever piece of furniture they’ve damaged or scratched. You can get creative with it–whether it’s covering it up or accenting it with a piece of decor. We know that sounds crazy, but adding a tablecloth, box, vase, or mat can help to cover it up, distract from it, or accent it in a nice way. This way, you can still keep the furniture you love without having to worry about people noticing the damage your cat has caused.

Tips for Protecting Your Furniture from the Weather, Pets, and More!

living room furnitureOur furniture can see a lot of wear and tear over the years. If you’re the type of person who likes to see their furniture last for years to come–as we’re sure most people are–you’re always looking for ways to preserve the beautiful pieces of furniture that you love. These tips, brought to you by us here at National Furniture Liquidators, can help you take care of the furniture you love and preserve the pieces you want to keep for years to come.

Tip #1: Keep Your Sofas Clean

We spend a lot of time on our sofas. From watching our favorite movies to eating food and cuddling with our pets (though hopefully not at the same time), our sofas see a lot of wear and tear over the years from our frequent use. Keeping them clean, using blankets or covers while eating or spending quality time with your pet, and getting them deep cleaned after major spills can all help to prolong their lifespans.

Tip #2: Protect Your Outdoor Furniture from the Weather

Outdoor furniture is often used less than any other piece of furniture but they often get the most damage. From crazy weather patterns to pets and wild animals such as birds and squirrels can all have negative impacts on our furniture. For better furniture protection, it’s ideal to cover each piece when you’re not using them, store them somewhere safe during the winter, and to make sure everything is held down properly during some of El Paso’s notorious wind storms. This way, you can reduce the damage done to your outdoor furniture no matter the weather.

Tip #3: Protect and Preserve Wooden Furniture

Over time, wooden furniture can become scratched, faded, and dull. Using protective covers and hardwood oils and finishes can protect the furniture from future damages while also restoring its current shine and glamour.

Tip #4: Buy Furniture From a Trustworthy Furniture Seller

The point of purchase is just as important in how long your furniture survives as maintaining it over the years. Reputable furniture stores will be able to sell you the best of the best in furniture, meaning that you can rest assured knowing you’re getting high-quality, long-lasting furniture.
