Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month – February 2023

Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month, which takes place in February, is a celebration you can’t afford to miss. Understandably, we are all in favor of a plan that entails cleaning beneath the furniture. Discover why we are so enthusiastic about getting your couch off the walls, and learn some tips on how to do it right.

History of Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month

The sofa is a welcoming spot where family members and friends can chill to watch movies, play games, read, and unwind, sometimes with food and refreshments. However, those renegade popcorn kernels or sticky drink spills do not just go into the ether. They decay, make a mess, and attract a variety of unwanted bugs.

Furthermore, if you have a pet, you never know what else might be hiding behind your furniture. We are talking tufts of fur, dried hairballs, chew toys, and other nasty surprises. As a result, cleaning the elusive areas beneath and behind your furniture should be a must-do on any thorough cleaning routine.

Setting a routine for cleaning underneath your furniture depends on how many pets and people occupy your home, as well as how frequently the area is occupied. Nevertheless, you should clean under and behind the sofa at least twice a year for the best housekeeping results, but ideally, you should vacuum once a month.

Cleaning underneath furniture is not worth the stress if it causes back pain or scratches on your wooden floors. Before taking on the task of moving the sofa away from the wall, make sure you seek some assistance. To make the work a wee bit easier, you might consider an investment in furniture sliders.

Perhaps you will come across some items you have been tearing the house apart to find for a while. You could even get yourself a congratulatory gift from all the loose change you unearth. Alternatively, this could be the ideal opportunity to reorganize your home and experiment with a new ambiance. Whatever the situation is, cleaning should not be a source of unhappiness, make it as enjoyable as possible!

Why is there fabric underneath the sofa?
