Your couch or chair can get very dirty over time. Depending on the color of your furniture you may not even notice how dirty it has become. It is important that you vacuum your upholstery regularly. Spring cleaning is a great time to start. You need to vacuum it so you can get all the dust, dirt, and even pet hair off the surface of your upholstery. If you have an upholstery attachment to your vacuum then make sure you use that so you can get down inside in the corners of your furniture to get a deeper clean.
Treat Stains Immediately
It is important that when a spill happens on your upholstery you clean it up immediately. This will help prevent stains. Use a clean white cloth and blot the spill. If you find a stain on your couch then try to clean it up by also using a clean white cloth and a mild cleaning solution. If this does not get it out then you can call a professional.
Protect Your Upholstered Furniture
This a great way to help prevent stains or even pets from ruining your furniture. Put on throws or slipcovers on your couches or chairs. These can help keep the dirt and grime off your furniture keeping it cleaner for longer. Kids and pets can make your couches look very dirty but keeping the slipcovers on can help protect your couches from being ruined over time.
Get the Smells Out of Sofas
Your furniture can start to get a smell to it. Over time they can start to get a musty smell. It can also start to smell if you let your pets on your furniture or have had spills that were not cleaned up immediately. A great way to get rid of the smells is that you can try sprinkling a little baking soda on your couch or chairs. Let it sit for a few hours, if you want to let it sit overnight this can help it even more. After you let it sit for a while then vacuum it up. This can help your fabric smell better. You could also use a fabric freshener.
