Why we need to clean and care for upholstery furniture?
Despite our best efforts, furniture upholstery inevitably gets dirty and worn out. When we come home from work, the first thing we often do is sit on the sofa, even if it is dirty. Children can also get upholstery dirty. Their careless play often results in spills and even scratches on your furniture. Over time, dirt and damage can build up on the upholstery, making it very unsightly.
Things needed to do cleaning
Fortunately, cleaning upholstered furniture is not difficult. For a thorough couch cleaning, you’ll need a steam cleaner, a hoverboard, white towels, a light brush, cleaning products, and a cover for the floor and surrounding objects.
Start by a vacuum cleaner
Before you start cleaning, check for colorfastness, fading, and ET of furniture, and make sure there are no blades or pins in the corners or edges of the upholstery where you could get hurt. Start by cleaning the upholstery with a vacuum cleaner. This will loosen the dirt and suck most of the dirt out of the fabric. Be sure to vacuum hidden corners and sides, or the dust can quickly reappear.
To remove stains, apply a small amount of water and detergent and clean with a steam cleaner. Remember to cover the area around the stain, especially the wooden parts, as the chemicals can discolor or damage them. You can remove the most stubborn stains with a light brush. When you’ve cleaned all the stains, quickly dry the furniture with a hairdryer because if it stays wet, it can start to smell bad.
Points to keep in mind while cleaning
When cleaning upholstered furniture, remember to keep the carpet at a distance. So as not to damage it with the chemicals used. Also, avoid cleaning badly damaged areas of the upholstery, as moving the cuts repeatedly will only make them bigger. And if you don’t feel up to the task, call a cleaning service. And have them clean the upholstery for you. Their services are inexpensive and they often do the job satisfactorily, leaving your upholstery well cleaned and looking like new.
