Taking Care of Upholstery

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!

  • 5 star review  I noticed the Dazzle Carpet Cleaning van at my neighbours and gave them a call to see if they could clean my place too. Thankfully Bernard was able to make a switch and fit me in! Soon after, Aidan came to my door to assess what needed to be cleaned and I could see that he was enthusiastic about stain removal! Aidan is friendly and professional and did a great job carefully moving furniture around. He thoroughly cleaned my large sectional sofa, the living room carpet and even got the blueberry stain out of my kitchen chair! I highly recommend Aidan as he clearly has confidence in his own skills and demonstrates pride in his work. I am very happy with the results!

  • 5 star review  I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!

  • 5 star review  We are extremely happy with the carpet cleaning and vinyl waxing job, Rob and his team from Dazzle has done for us in our office space. They were quick, efficient and more than accommodating to us for our needs. The outcome was fantastic! I would highly recommend and intend to use them again in the future.

  • 5 star review  My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • 5 star review  Aiden professionally cleaned a couple of our large area rugs and our sofa. He was very nice, very professional, and did a great job! The most important thing to me was to use a company that used cleaning products safe for my baby and my two dogs, and that’s what this company uses. Not only that, but they’re eco-friendly. I was thinking there would still be some lingering smell from the cleaning solution, but I didn’t smell anything at all which made me feel confident my baby and pets wouldn’t be breathing anything toxic as promised. We will definitely be using Dazzle again 🙂
