Upholstered furniture adds a gorgeous flare to your home, no matter where its placed. Whether you have an accent chair that rarely gets used or we’re talking about your everyday family sofa- upholstered furniture is no easy feat to clean. Fortunately, there are some precautions you can take to keep your upholstered furniture staying clean longer- but ultimately, everything needs a deep, thorough clean every once in a while.
Take A Few Precautions:
Direct sunlight can be harmful to our furniture as it causes the fabric to fade and discolor. Avoid placing upholstery near bright, sunny windows, and rotate cushions periodically to ensure the fabric isn’t sitting in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
The best thing you can do for your furniture is to vacuum periodically throughout the week. Especially if you have (small) children and/or pets, crumbs seem to inch their way into every crack and crevice of our furniture. Vacuum the surface of the cushions and then in between, if you can, to make sure there isn’t anything left behind.
When it comes to spills and other stains, try to treat them as soon as you can- especially on softer fabrics. The longer liquids and other materials are left to sit, the more likely they are to stain the furniture. It’s best to blot up any spill first, and then apply your cleaning solution. Do not rub when it comes to spills because then the spot is more likely to spread.
