It’s always hard to keep up with the right maintenance in our homes, especially on our furniture. Whether you live alone or with a family, cleaning your upholstery is one of the many things you need to do to keep your home clean, beautiful, and healthy.

During an upholstery cleaning, stains, dirt, and oils are cleaned off the fabric that covers the furniture. Most people think that cleaning upholstery is a simple and easy task. However, cleaning delicate natural materials like cotton is not as easy as it seems. Continue reading to learn why you should get your upholstery professionally cleaned.

Importance of Professional Upholstery Cleaning Services

Most of the dirt and dust you bring in your home ends up on your carpet and furniture. From your leather sofa to your favorite suede lounge chair, you should do everything you can to keep your upholstery clean and in good shape. Here’s why and how you should keep your home happy, healthy, and clean all season long:

1. Air Quality

Nothing looks more inviting when your furniture looks clean. Cleaning your furniture can improve the air quality by getting rid of things like mold, dust, mildew, and allergens. Soft furniture is a great place for bacteria to grow, and pathogens and dirt can build up to the point where they can be harmful to your health. When someone sits down on a couch or chair, these organisms can be released into the environment.

2. Health

Allergens, dust mites, fleas, mold, and bacteria can get into the fibers of your furniture and could cause a wide range of allergies and illnesses if left for too long. Moreover, people who are sensitive to dust or mold will be affected even more by this. When you clean your upholstery on a regular basis, these allergens are much less likely to be there. This helps keep your home and family healthy.

3. Longer Furniture Life Span

Your furniture is an investment, and it’s usually a costly one. Whether it’s just normal wear and tear or milk spills, body oil, or grease, cleaning your furniture often can help it last longer.

4. Maintains Appearance

If you keep your upholstery clean, the colors will stay bright and the textures will stay how they should be. Cleaning also gets rid of stains and smells. Dirt and grime are especially important to get rid of if you have pets, since being exposed to these pollutants for a long time can damage your upholstery.

5. Saves Time and Money

You probably spent a lot of money on your furniture’s upholstery, so you want it to last. If you take care of it and clean it often, you won’t have to get it reupholstered or replace it as often, which will save you money in the long run.

How Often Should You Clean Your Upholstery and Carpets?

Have you remembered the last time youcleaned your sofa? If your home is like most of the households, you probably use your furniture a lot but don’t take care of it as well as you should. So, how often should you clean your furniture?

Surface Cleaning

Your furniture needs to be vacuumed regularly. It’s important to vacuum the upholstery often in between cleanings to keep it free of dirt, dust, and allergens. Surface cleaning can do a lot to keep the upholstery in good shape and as clean as possible. Always remember to surface clean your upholstery before getting it deep cleaned.

Deep Cleaning

Your upholstered furniture will last longer if you clean it often, but be careful not to clean it too much or it could get damaged.

There are a few things to think about when deciding how often you should clean your furniture. For example, if the upholstery is in a room that gets used a lot or if kids and pets use it a lot, it may get dirty more quickly and need to be deep cleaned more often. Regular vacuuming and spot cleaning are good things to do on your own, but professional upholstery cleaners should be hired for deep cleaning.

Upholstery Cleaning Process

Step 1:

Vacuum your upholstery. Schedule regular vacuuming of your furniture to keep it clean and in good shape. Don’t forget to clean out the dirt and dust from the cracks and crevices in the cushions, especially at the arms and back of the sofa.

Step 2:

Check the fabric’s tags or cleaning instructions to see if it needs a solvent-based cleaner before you use one on it. Some fabrics for furniture come with instructions for how to clean them. It’s important to remember that some fabrics are made to be cleaned with steam or dry cleaning.

Check the cushion and look for letter codes W, S, SW, or X which means for the types of cleaning agents to use:

  • W– Water-based cleaning agent
  • S– Solvent-based cleaning agent
  • SW- Both solvent and water-based cleaning agents
  • X– Need cleaning by a professional

Step 3:

With dishwashing liquid, you can make a cleaner that works with water. Get a spray bottle and fill it with water. Add two drops of liquid dish soap to the bottle. To get rid of smells, put a capful of white vinegar and a few pinches of baking soda in the bottle and shake it well.

Step 4:

As a general rule, you should test the detergent mixture first in an area that no one will see. Use a sponge to soak up some detergent mixture and rub it on the area that won’t be seen. Dry the area with a cloth and let it air dry completely. If you see some stains, throw out the detergent mixture and think about calling in professionals to make sure the fabric gets clean without getting damaged.

Cleaning Different Types of Furniture

Cloth Cleaning

  • Vacuum the upholstery, in-between seams, and corners.
  • Spray with cleaner. Dry it off.
  • Clean it off using cloth.

Leather Cleaning

  • Dust off debris and dirt using a vacuum.
  • Gently scrub off with leather cleaner, if not available you may use white vinegar.
  • Dry it off.

Launderettes Cleaning

  • Prepare a wet cloth with some liquid dish soap or any washing soap on it.
  • Then scrub it over the leatherette.
  • Wipe it off with a dry cloth. For some stains, rubbing it off with a polish remover will do.

Upholstery Cleaning Tips

  1. Have a regular schedule for vacuuming the furniture to keep it in good shape all the time. Dust, surface oil, and dirt should be cleaned off regularly so that they don’t get stuck in the fabric.
  2. When someone spills red wine, soda, or coffee on the furniture, clean it right away with a clean cloth or towel. If you rub the spot where the liquid got on the furniture, the stain will get deeper into the wood. It is better to gently wipe something clean.
  3. Flip cushions over often to make upholstered furniture last longer. Not only does it make it look clean, but it also helps it last longer by keeping its natural shape.
  4. Flip cushions over on a regular basis to make upholstered furniture last longer. Not only does it make it look clean, but it also helps it last longer by keeping its natural shape.
  5. One of the best ways to clean is to brush as you vacuum.
  6. Some fabrics are delicate, so you shouldn’t scrub them off. Even though the stain removal works, the scrubbing can still cause the fabric to weaken.
  1. Never let a stain dry out before you clean it. Stains should be cleaned up quickly so that they don’t leave permanent marks on the fabric.
  2. If you want to get rid of stains, it’s better to wet down the whole fabric evenly, including the arms.
  3. If you want to get rid of a wide or large stain, begin by working toward the center instead of outwards. If you can’t get the stains out and the damage keeps getting worse, it might be best to call in the professionals.
  4. If you have pets, you should keep them out of the house while you clean. They can make stains worse instead of helping you clean your furniture.
  5. Keep the room well-ventilated. This helps a lot and keeps the fabrics dry.
  6. Try not to smoke in the room while you’re cleaning the furniture, because the smoke can get into the fabrics and stay there.
