Upholstery Tip #4: Worms vs. Pencil Technique

Tip #4: The Pencil Technique

Taking care of your furniture is important, especially when it comes to protecting it from pests like borers. But don't worry, there's a simple and effective way to keep them at bay. After you've dealt with borers, take a pencil and circle the holes they've left behind. It's a small step, but it can make a big difference.

Now, here's the important part: make sure to check your furniture every year. Set aside some time for a thorough inspection, maybe on a special day like your birthday or a holiday. Look closely for any new holes that don't have circles around them. If you spot one, it means that borers might be back, and you need to take action before they cause more damage.
