Upholstery is a major part of your home environment, which is why it’s important to keep your upholstery clean. Like your carpeting, the main way of maintaining your upholstery is vacuuming it at least once a week. Regular vacuuming will reduce the amount of dust and dirt that settles into your upholstery. Carpet Cleaning Pros know that dry dirt and sand acts as an abrasive to your delicate upholstered fabrics, causing cuts in the fibers. This will cause premature aging and wear.You can deodorize your upholstery by sprinkling a little baking soda on it, letting it sit for a few hours or overnight then vacuuming it up completely. Baking soda does a great job of neutralizing many odors.
Another important step in maintaining your upholstery is getting spills up immediately. Blot spills up with paper towels or a clean washcloth. Work from the outside in to keep spills from spreading. Typically, a mixture of a colorless, mild, vegetable oil based dishwashing liquid and warm water will work on most fabrics for spot cleaning. Start out by testing on a small are before cleaning a larger area. Check the label on your furniture to make sure you can use water to spot clean.
Regular professional cleanings is the third step in maintaining your upholstery. Upholstered furniture should be cleaned once every 18 to 24 months to cut down on allergens and germs.
