I have a fairly large spider plant and I just recently noticed that it is giving off a sticky residue that has covered my table and carpet etc. Why is it doing this and what can I do to remove the sticky substance from my furniture etc.

Your plant most likely has Honeydew. This sticky residue is from pests.
You can treat the plant with Neem Oil.
Here are some links with more information.
