Basic Upholstery Cleaning Can and Should Always Provide Required Protection


 
Home Improvement,Family & Parenting,Health
The best thing about maintaining upholstered furniture? It is easy to do it, and it does not take much time. The result? You get to have a great looking sofa year after year.

No matter how carefully you treat your nice, upholstered furniture, the day will come when they will look a bit worse for wear. A few tips and tricks, however, can help you along the way to extending the life of your upholstered pieces.

The useful life of upholstered furniture can be increased if the consumer follows a few simple fabric protection rules. It is important that a fabric be chosen that is appropriate for its intended use. Blot up stains as quickly as possible. Do not rub. Prompt attention to stains increases success in removing them. Even stain-resistant finishes offer only temporary protection.

Protect Your Fabric

The best form of fabric protection is prompt attention to spills. A lot of work is done for you when the upholstery fabric undergoes the finishing process at the factory. where it is usually treated with soil and/or water repellents. Some form of mildew inhibitors may also be used. Additional fabric protectors may also be applied to your upholstered furniture in the store or at home.

While this helps with maintenance and care by keeping spills from being absorbed into the upholstery fibers right away, it is not a substitute for prompt cleaning of a soiled piece. Don't let it give you a false sense of security. Always clean up any spills or stains in a timely manner, and follow manufacturers' instructions for proper care methods.

Turn the Cushions

You can extend your upholstered furniture's life by periodically turning over the loose cushions. What can be simpler? Yet this easy maintenance method allows for an even distribution of wear and tear and your cushions won't develop indentations right away. Caring for cushions by fluffing them after you've cleaned also helps keep them in shape.

Change the cushions around from one part to the other in addition to turning them over. Some seats get more usage than others, so changing cushions around will ensure even usage.

Vacuum

Vacuum your upholstered furniture weekly for general cleaning and to remove surface soil. This also prevents dirt from becoming embedded into the fibers. You can also use a brush to gently whisk the dirt away. Make sure to always use a soft bristled brush so that you don't snag the fabric.

Spot Clean

While regular care does a lot for your upholstered furniture's maintenance, accidents will happen. Blot any spills immediately with a clean folded towel: never rub, but blot gently. Sometimes this is enough to get rid of the stain completely, especially if the fabric has been pre-treated with a fabric protector

For spot cleaning, use a cleaning product that corresponds with your fabric's cleaning code. Test any cleaner in an inconspicuous area first. Never use spot cleaners containing bleach or alcohol. It is best to use a mild cleaning product. Apply with a soft brush in a circular motion to work into the fibers, then vacuum when dry.

If you are not sure about how to clean your furniture, or the codes are not available, it may be best to call a professional upholstery cleaner. You can also purchase upholstery protectors to keep your furniture from becoming stained or dirty. If you buy your furniture brand new, the fabric is generally pre-treated. However, over time this protection will wear off, and used furniture will likely not have it.

The furniture industry recommends professional cleaning when overall cleaning is necessary. The cleaning code should be called to the attention of your professional cleaner. A part of the instruction for each code designation is Caution: Never remove cushion covers for separate dry cleaning or washing. Any cleaning method that requires the removal of the covers from the cushions can destroy the backing, shrink, or otherwise damage upholstery fabric.
