Carpet Care 2000 knows how important upholstery cleaning is, and that’s why we are here the share some upholstery cleaning tips with you, our valued customers.
It’s no secret that it’s important to vacuum your carpet to keep it clean. However, upholstery is often over looked and just as important to vacuum on a regular basis. While your carpets should be cleaned a couple of times a week, your furniture could greatly benefit from a good vacuuming once a week as well. Many vacuums come with special attachments that make it a simple task that is worth setting some time aside to complete.
Polish the Wood on Your Upholstered Furniture
Many upholstered pieces aren’t entirely covered in fabric. Many pieces of furniture have metal or wood on them as well in the form of legs and arms. To keep up with the wear and tear on these pieces of furniture, it is important to do polishing. For metal, it is best to use a gently cleaning solution. For wood, polishing is the best way to clean it.
Know Recommendations of Sofa Manufacturers
Every piece of furniture is different with different fabrics used in their production. Before you get started on cleaning them, you need to know and understand the best way to care for them. This is best done by following the manufacturer’s cleaning recommendations. Common decoding of the labels include: WS (Safe to clean with mild detergent), S (dry clean detergent only), X (do not use water, only vacuum) and W (safe to clean with water).
Remove Old Stains from Upholstery
Even when you are as careful as possible, spills and stains are bound to happen. It is important that you take care of these spots and stains as soon as you notice they are there. Once you have figured out what to use to safely clean your furniture, you are set to get rid of any staining that has accidentally happened. Most fabrics we recommend you blot rather than scrub to remove any spills as scrubbing can damage the fabric.
