Whether you've just purchased a new couch or installed new carpeting in your home, you'll want to take the proper precautionary measures to ensure your investment always looks just as great as the day you bought it.

Items such as couches, loveseats and carpeting are all prone to discoloration over time, but there are ways you can keep this from happening. With the right discount window treatments and preventative measures, you can ensure your furnishings and decor last for years to come.

Protecting furniture
Your furniture is perhaps one of your most prized possessions, and rightfully so - most people spend a large amount of money on furniture sets for living spaces in their homes. That being said, you don't want your couch to become discolored just a few months after bringing them into the house.

One way to keep your furniture from becoming discolored from sunlight and ultraviolet rays coming your windows is through blinds and shades. For example, roller shades can prevent the sun from beating down on your furnishings during the day, thus eliminating the chance of discoloration.

Another tactic you can use is to cover your furniture when it's not in use. There are covers you can buy for your couches and chairs that keep the sun from reaching the material and causing discoloration.

Maintaining carpet
If you believe that sunlight might be the cause of the stains on your carpeting, it's in your best interest to use window treatments on a regular basis to keep ultraviolet rays from causing discoloration.

Another reason why your carpeting might be showing stains is because of particles in the air that have built up over time, according to In this instance, you might need to bring in a professional cleaner to remove the debris from your carpet.
