How to Keep Upholstered Furniture Looking Its Best
To maintain your upholstery between professional cleanings, vacuum once a week and clean up spills and stains right away. Dirt and sand can be abrasive on upholstered fabrics, cutting the fibers and causing premature aging and wear. Use the crevice tool on your vacuum to get into the folds and the upholstery attachment for flatter surfaces.
To neutralize odors on your upholstered furniture, sprinkle baking soda or corn starch and let it sit for at least an hour before vacuuming it up.
To clean up spills, blot them up with white paper towels or a clean, white cotton towel. Work from the outside inward when blotting up spills to keep from spreading the stain.
How Often Should I Have My Upholstery Professionally Cleaned?
Professional furniture cleaning should be done once every 12 to 24 months for upholstered furniture to remove allergens and germs that can make you sick. You may want to consider having us apply a protective treatment on your upholstered furniture after your Upholstery Cleaning if the furniture is exposed to a lot of dirt, spills and pet accidents.
