The Nasty Truth About Furniture Polish

Keeping furniture clean not only makes the piece more attractive but lengthens its lifespan immensely. However, it does not have to be a hassle or pose a danger to your health or those around you to keep them and durable.

Did you know one of the hydrocarbons in furniture polish is formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen that can accumulate in human fat tissue over time?! It also contains nitrobenzene – which is easily absorbed through the skin and is another known carcinogen that is a reproductive and central nervous system toxin. Many brands contain petroleum distillates that have been linked to skin and lung cancers and can cause nerve damage, they are also highly flammable and dangerous if swallowed! Yikes!

Did you scare huh? Not to worry !! You can keep that furniture clean all the time so it doesn’t need a polish soon to make it shine again. Constant vacuuming of your furniture will help a great deal. Use a soft brush while cleaning to risk damaging the surface and remove cushions to ensure you’re able to reach every nook and cranny in the piece of furniture. And always try to remove dirt and stains using mild soap and water.

Above all, get you a cleaner who pays attention to details and save yourself the stress of having to polish your furniture all the time to cover up for the cleaning deficiencies and lapses. You can’t be wrong with Allure Procleaners.
