A new survey reveals that stains on sofas top the list of furniture fails.

According to a recent survey from Allstate Protection Plans, sofas, couches, and loveseats are the most likely furniture to be damaged, with over half of purchases being damaged within the first two years. A staggering 174.8 million Americans have experienced damaged furniture, with 61% of accidents occurring in the first two years of ownership. The survey also revealed that spills and stains are the leading cause of damage, accounting for 55% of incidents, while rips and tears make up 25%. Surprisingly, adults are more likely to be responsible for damage than pets or children, with spouses being blamed for 45% of incidents. To prevent damage to furniture, experts recommend cleaning regularly, using coasters and mats to prevent rings and stains, investing in protective covers, rotating cushions, controlling environmental factors, and considering a protection plan.
