Don’t let your pet ruin your furniture

Pets will chew and scratch your furniture and they might even have the odd accident! Owning a pet is a big decision to make, as is having a child. Now that you have made that decision, you should look to protect your furniture from excitable puppies and enthusiastic kittens. 

With this in mind, we have a few handy hints to help you protect your home and furniture from everything that a new pet will throw at you!

You can remove pet fur from upholstery easily using a soft rubber brush or dampened rubber glove.  Gently pass this over the fabric in a gentle stroking action and simply wash the glove or brush afterwards to get rid of the fur.

Pet mess can often be removed from the surface of upholstery fabric with a clear spirit, such as vodka. Use on a clean white cloth in a dabbing action – this is particularly helpful for oily stains and dry clean only fabrics.

Before attempting any cleaning always test the product in an inconspicuous place first.


Protecting your beloved furniture and home comforts need not be a chore but a way of life. If your cat has scratched your sofa or your dog has chewed your dining room chairs, contact your local Furniture Medic here for a free quotation with no obligation.
