For those of us who live in more temperate climates, start with a thorough vacuuming, keeping an eagle eye out for the telltale small black spots, or reddish streaks or stains, that might indicate bedbugs. If you encounter insects, be sure to empty your vacuum into a plastic bag, seal the bag, and throw it away. A blast of steam will also do in these critters. If you scavenge for furniture regularly, a hand-held steamer like this one would be a worthy investment.

Unfortunately, rodents are not the only potential upholstery residents you have to worry about. (Get ready for a collective “eewwww.") Bedbugs are a nasty reality these days. Vitian’s Re-Upholstery blog gives excellent advice, which includes always keeping a flashlight and magnifying glass with you when you are scavenging. These disgusting critters hang out on the backs and undersides of cushions and inside joints, seams, creases and screw or nail holes. What’s the answer to this dilemma? First, quarantine. Unless you are 100 percent certain your fab find is clean and pure, do not bring it into your home immediately. If it’s winter, wrap it in moving blankets or tightly in plastic and take it into the cold. Put the wrapped furniture in an unheated garage or back porch — anywhere where it will be protected from the elements but subject to freezing temperatures. The cold will kill any living insects within 48 hours. If you reside in a very hot climate, three days of 110-degree temperatures will also do the trick. cleaning supplies by BuilderDepot, Inc.
