Furniture Etiquette Mom Didn't Mention; Experts At Furniture Medic Tell Us What Our Belongings Are Begging For

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE | Friday, September 13, 2002

Mom always said to keep your feet off of the coffee table and elbows off the dinner table but she may not have told you how to avoid the common everyday mistakes that can damage your furniture. The furniture care and repair experts at Furniture Medic say sometimes it's the little things that can save you from having big problems. "Sometimes the hardest damage to repair on furniture are the scratches, heat marks and water rings that people accidentally make in the surface of a piece," says Furniture Medic franchisee, Ansley Larrson. "Small stick-on felt pieces and hot plates or coasters with cork bottoms can go a long way toward preventing these mistakes." Other common pitfalls include using the wrong cleaner for your furniture's surface and allowing moisture to get trapped between wood surfaces and the glass tops that are often bought to protect wood. The most important thing to remember when damage does occur is to call an expert right away. Adding cleaners and polishes or trying to fix the problem yourself can make it worse. A Furniture Medic technician can often fix the damage for much less than the cost of replacement, saving you money and keeping you from losing a beloved piece. Founded in 1992, Furniture Medic has more than 600 franchise locations across the United States, Canada and Europe. Furniture Medic is part of the ServiceMaster Consumer Services network, which is headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., and includes eight market-leading companies that provide a range of residential and commercial services.
