Taking care of upholstery isn’t as hard as you think! With the right products and techniques, it can easily be done at home. Whether it is an armchair, a sofa, or even a set of dining room chairs, your upholstery is an investment, and should be treated as such. Purchasing upholstery is often an expensive ordeal, but with careful upkeep can remain in your home for decades to come. Keep reading below! You’ll find out all of Dazzle CC’s best tips and tricks for taking care of upholstery. We’ll also tell you when it’s time to call in the professionals!
Taking Care of Upholstery: The Basics
Consistent upkeep is what matters the most. Regular vacuuming and dusting can go a long way in taking care of upholstery. To preserve your furniture, using a soft-bristled brush or a hand-vacuum can go a long way. Be sure to read the fabric care instructions that come with your upholstered pieces as well, and if in doubt, always check with the manufactuer!
Regular cleaning will remove surface dirt and dust. This will help the particles from being further embedded into the fabric.
Don’t waste time!
When accidents happen, it’s best to tend to them right away. Leaving spills and stains for the next day allows the liquids, odors, and solids more time to sink deep into the fabric. This means that it will be much more difficult to remove them when the time comes. Clean up spills immediately by blotting the liquid with a paper towel. Don’t try to rub the stain out as this will only exacerbate the problem and could leave a permanent stain.
If you have pets at home, you may find yourself dealing with issues relating to odors. For a quick refresh, sprinkle the upholstered surface with bicarbonate of soda and leave it overnight before vacuuming in the morning. This treatment won’t damage the upholstery. On the contrary, it’ll keep it smelling and looking fresh!
For sofas, you can also regularly rotate the seat cushions to lessen wear and tear. It might seem like a small thing to do, but it does make a difference!
Going the extra mile
When it comes to taking care of upholstery, only so much can be done on your own. It’s important to have a professional clean done at least once a year, and more for stubborn or difficult stains. Dazzle CC offers high-heat steam cleaning for ALL upholstered surfaces. This will eradicate all bacteria as well as clean deep down into the fabric for a thorough sanitization. Don’t leave it too long – the dirtier upholstered furniture gets, the harder it will be to clean. Make taking care of your upholstery part of your spring cleaning routine!
