Here are a few tips to help with your furniture cleaning that we have learned throughout decades in the industry:
1 – Start by vacuuming your furniture.
You will want to vacuum your furniture on a weekly basis. When it is time for spring cleaning, take it a step further by removing and washing the cushions and getting to all the crevices underneath.
2 – Clean metal and polish wood on your furniture.
With a gentle cleaning solution, polish the wood or metal accent pieces on your furniture.
3 – Treat your specific upholstery fabric.
Always check the label on your furniture for cleaning instructions first. Common fabric types include WS (safe to use mild detergent), S (dry cleaner detergent only), X (no water, vacuum only), W (safe to clean with water).
4 – Spot-treat visible stains.
Use a store-bought stain remover or a natural homemade solution. A mixture of ¼ cup vinegar, ¾ cup water, and a couple of drops of dish soap works well.
5 – Let your furniture dry.
Let your furniture dry in a well-ventilated area after using a soft towel to soak up any remaining moisture. Portable fans can also be used if needed. You will want your furniture to be completely dry in a couple of days, and keep an eye out for any mold or mildew growth.
6 – Schedule your professional upholstery cleaning appointment.
At least once a year, be sure to schedule your professional upholstery cleaning to keep it looking its best.
