Cleaning Tip #3 - Caring/Maintaining for Upholstery
- Posted: Jan 19, 2011
You've spent the time and money to pick out a new couch, loveseat, and maybe even a new recliner. You've read the owner's manuals, hopefully, but what can you do to keep them clean in between professional cleanings? Let the cleaning experts of Heaven's Best share some helpful tips about caring for upholstery.
If you want to keep your furniture completely spotless the only thing to do is lock it in a room and never use it. Since you really like the new couch and your husband is looking forward to watching TV in the reclining chair, that's not going to happen. Things happen and there will be spills on the sofa.
Keeping the upholstered furniture clean isn't very difficult. First, try to keep the seat and back clean. Keeping pets off the cushions as much as possible will reduce the amount of hair. One thing people forget to use are the headrest and armrest covers. If you have a habit of setting your feet on the couch, that's okay, just realize that it will cause it to get dirtier faster. Another habit is eating in front of the TV, but the crumbs that are spilled onto the furniture will get rubbed into the fibers.
Spills do happen and you can't stop living your life because you want the furniture to look perfect. If there are crumbs, pet hairs, or spills, clean them up as quickly as possible. Thoroughly vacuuming the upholstery, occasionally, is a good practice to get into. When a small spill happens on the fabric, you can use a Heaven's Best spotter to clean it up. If it's a more serious stain call Heaven's Best, the cleaning professionals.
Your furniture, just like carpet, gets dirty and needs to be cleaned by the cleaning technicians of Heaven's Best. We recommend having your upholstery cleaned yearly. If you own a business and have upholstery, we recommend at least twice a year. When we clean your furniture, we can also apply a fabric protector that will help repel stains and spills in the future.
