Usually, one of the best forms of insect control in Gawler is to put the piece of furniture in the hot sun for a few hours. In fact, this method will work not only with furniture but with anything else that you suspect is infected by insects or mites like your mattress, your cushions or anything else. Once you have cleaned all of the furniture out, you can consider painting the furniture black, white or in another colour that you have chosen for your home design theme. Alternatively, you can sand paper the furniture to bring out that gorgeous wooden texture.

After you have sand papered the whole piece of furniture, you will be surprised to see what beauty has been lying underneath the coatings of oil and dirt that has collected on the furniture for so long. As time goes by, there is so much of dirt that collects on furniture that you often forget the original colour of the furniture and what it is supposed to actually look like. Another thing that can happen is that the original store or seller can cover up the actual beauty of the wood by painting it or vanishing it hiding the actual beauty of the piece of furniture. In fact, you could even consider buying old furniture from auctions, sandpapering them, polishing them and reselling them for a big profit as a business. There is a lot of potential to make money with a business like this.
