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  A friend of mine recommended I call Dazzle for my carpet cleaning, and I'm glad I did. They provided excellent services and were exceptionally friendly and professional. I would definitely give them a call again.

  • 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  From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.

  • 5 star review  I called Dazzle carpet cleaners to clean older carpet in my condo. I was so impressed by the amazing job Aiden did and his professionalism. He was even able to get out some stains I thought were there for good. So impressed! Will absolutely use Dazzle again.

  • 5 star review  Dazzle came to do carpet cleaning in my apartment building which turned out incredible. Our building is very old and the carpets were very saturated. You can see the lightness in color now and they no longer smell. I also utilized them to clean my carpet, bar stools, and couch on the same day. They did an excellent job. Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable

  • 5 star review  I recently had Dazzle clean my parents carpet after my dogs had multiple accidents in their home. They did an amazing job removing the pet stains and their customer service skills went beyond my expectations. They were extremely knowledgeable about carpets and area rugs, and at they end of their service, they gave my mother a sachet filled with cleaning and stain removing goodies to help maintain the wonderful job they did cleaning their carpets. I highly recommended going with Dazzle, if they can clean the mess my dogs made on my parents white carpets, they can clean anything.

  • 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  Very impressed and pleased with the dazzle service that was recommended to me by my in laws. From the start (initial contact, follow-up, service)...I would give it two thumbs up! Look no further for carpet cleaning. My carpet cleaner was Aiden and he was terrific.

  • 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 🙂
