Upholstery Care and Maintenance Tips

Upholstered furniture can add style, elegance and beauty to any living space. But it is necessary that you regularly clean and maintain your upholstery to retain its look. With consistent and proper cleaning, your upholstered furniture can look new for a long time. Ask the upholstery cleaner on how to care and maintain the upholstery in your home or office.

Do you live with young children? If yes, then your upholstered furniture is prone to spills. It is recommended that you use some sort of extra fabric protector on the upholstery in such homes. This prevents the spill from getting absorbed right away. But this doesn’t mean that you do not have to wipe off the spills. Ensure that the wet spill is cleaned off with a while blotching towel immediately. Remember never to rub on the upholstery.

If you have pets, then use an anti-scratch spray on your leather upholstered furniture. This will prevent any shredding or tearing of the fabric. Vacuum your upholstery on a weekly basis. This will prevent the accumulation of any surface dust. You can use a soft bristled brush to remove any dirt or pet hair.

If you use a lot of cushions on your furniture, ensure to clean them every week. Turn over the cushions often so that wear and tear is distributed evenly. Fluff them so maintain the life of the cushions.

Keep your upholstery away from direct sunlight, especially if you have used bright or dark colors. Keep your blinds closed during the day to avoid sun damage.

Carpets need to be clean once in a while. Doing so, will promote a healthy environment to your home. Contact the carpet steam cleaning Sunshine Coast for this.
