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,

    My first experience with Advanced Carpet Care was in my own home. To say I was impressed with their quality of service would be an understatement. Their technicians far exceeded expectations. It was more than evident that every piece of furniture was moved to ensure a thorough cleaning of every inch of carpet in my home. When it became necessary to clean the carpets in one of our large facilities, I was thrilled to learn that Advanced Carpet Care had been awarded the job. Once again, they knocked the ball out of the park. They completed the job in a single night and were able to remove all the soiled spots in the building. Their customer service team demonstrated a high level of professionalism and friendliness and has become one of our preferred vendors. Great work Advanced Carpet Care!

    My wife and I bought a house that smelled like dog, the previous owner had 3 dogs that must have spent all of their time in the living room. I was worried that we'd have to replace the carpet but Advanced Carpet Care was able to get the dog smell out 100%. We couldn't be more happy, very pleased.

    GREAT job your men did on cleaning our carpet last week! This was the first time I tried your company and I was thoroughly impressed. Your men came in and asked if there were any stains that they needed to pre-treat. They gave special attention to those areas, getting them to look just like new!I had a very positive customer experience with Advanced Carpet Care. I found them to be customer friendly and enjoyable to work with. They were flexible and accommodating to my schedule and willing to move most items to clean under furniture.Thank you!

    I have been using Gary and the guys at Advanced Carpet Cleaning for over 20 years now and just wanted to say Thanks so much for a fantastic job once again! I had a couple of spills this time that I never thought would come out. Of course, Gary got them out and the carpets look great! Gary and his team are friendly, efficient and always do a wonderful job! I would highly recommend them!
