Tips to Keep Your Upholstery Clean

Tired of the old look of your favorite sofa? Hate that stubborn stain on the couch? Tired of scrubbing and rubbing? Don’t worry! Here are some useful tips and tricks that will help you keep your upholstery clean. These tips are tried and tested. You won’t need a lot of fancy ingredients and expensive equipment. Also, you won’t need any help from upholstery cleaning services.

Make Dusting Your Best Friend

The first step to upholstery cleaning is thorough dusting. Make regular dusting a habit.  Get rid of all the dust by vacuuming the fabric surfaces of your furniture with the help of an upholstery attachment. Dusting not only helps you remove dust but also removes those tiny bread crumbs and dirts. When you vacuum your upholsteries regularly, dust and dirt don’t get the chance to get more embedded. You can also use brushes that come with soft bristles to clean your fabric couches and sofas. If you’re someone who loves leather upholsteries, use soft clothes to clean them.

Clean Any Stain or Spot as Soon as Possible

Now, there lies the trick. Clean the spot or stain as soon as you discover it. The more you delay, the more difficult it becomes to remove them. They behave just like some stubborn teenagers. If someone spills wine or any other liquid accidentally, don’t rush into rubbing it. Absorb it. Use a white piece of cloth to absorb the spill. Absorb as long as the cloth takes the color of the liquid.  Now, you can try cleaning the stain. A mixture of white vinegar and water at 1:1 ratio is a good option to remove lighter stains. For the stubborn ones, you may use a spot-treatment spray. If you use the right tool and treatment, removing spots might seem difficult, but not impossible.

Another Secret to Upholstery Cleaning: Bicarbonate

After a few years, your sofas and couches lose the new look and smell. Now, you can make your upholsteries look like new ones with the help of this magic ingredient called bicarbonate. While cleaning any of your fabric surfaces with this little secret ingredient, you will need just a handful of bicarbonate and a vacuum cleaner, But remember to try cleaning with bicarbonate on a lazy day as it would need some time to show the result.

First, take a sponge and some diluted dish soap to get rid of the stain. As said earlier, never rub a stain. Rubbing makes it worse. Rather pat it with the sponge. Once you are done, use a paper towel to blow dry it,

If the stain is still there, try any popular spot-cleaner available in the market. Once you’re satisfied with the result, vacuum the upholstery.

Now, it’s time to sprinkle the bicarbonate on the fabric and leave it for around 30 minutes.

After the time is over, vacuum the soft-furnishings once again to ensure that no specs of bicarbonate remain on the sofa,

    I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you need a little more cleaning power, they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth-friendly. Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller, service-minded businesses over a huge corporation.
