Secret Staging Tips from a Professional Home Stager: How to Transform Your Home Using WD-40

As a professional home stager, I've seen many homes that were perfectly clean and well-maintained, but still didn't impress potential buyers or guests. One of the secrets to successful staging is paying attention to small details that can make a big difference in creating a polished and professional look. One of my favorite tools for achieving this look is WD-40. WD-40 is a versatile product that can be used for more than just fixing squeaky doors and hinges. It can also be an essential tool for staging your home, as it can help you fix small issues that might detract from the overall appearance of your home. Here are some of the many ways that I've used WD-40 for staging:


  1. Lubricate door hinges: Squeaky doors can be a major distraction for potential buyers or guests. By using WD-40 to lubricate your door hinges, you can make sure that your doors open and close smoothly and quietly.

  2. Clean windows and mirrors: Dirty or streaky windows can be a big turn-off for potential buyers or guests. Use WD-40 to clean your windows and mirrors, and leave them sparkling and streak-free.

  3. Polish metal surfaces: Metal fixtures and appliances can add a modern and sleek look to your home. However, they can also become dull and tarnished over time. By using WD-40 to polish metal surfaces, you can restore their shine and make them look like new.

  4. Remove scuff marks: Scuff marks on walls or floors can be unsightly and distracting. By using WD-40 to remove scuff marks, you can make your walls and floors look clean and polished.

  5. Fix squeaky staircases: Squeaky stairs can be not only distracting but also dangerous. By using WD-40 to lubricate your staircase, you can make sure that it's safe and quiet.

These are just a few of the many ways that WD-40 can be used to stage your home. By paying attention to small details and using the right tools, you can transform your home into a polished and professional space that will impress anyone who walks through the door.
