Regular cleaning of upholstered furniture keeps it looking its best and extends its usable lifespan. In addition to regular vacuuming and spot cleaning, upholstered furniture should be cleaned once or twice every year by a professional company that uses high-tech Furniture Cleaning Equipment. To learn more information about cleaning upholstered furniture, read the frequently asked questions below.
Q.) What is the best method for cleaning upholstered furniture between professional cleanings?
A.) Use the brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner to sweep up dust and dirt on upholstered furniture. Place smaller attachments on the end of an extension wand to vacuum in the crevices of the furniture and in other areas that are hard to reach.
Q.) Does upholstered furniture that’s not used very often still need to be cleaned professionally?
A.) Upholstered furniture that’s used every day should be cleaned at least once every year. Heavily soiled furniture or furniture that’s in a home with pets may have to be cleaned once every six months. Upholstered furniture that is hardly every used can be cleaned by a professional once every two years. Even if the furniture is seldom ever used, it still collects dust from the air, and it still needs to have a periodic cleaning to keep the fabric looking new.
Q.) What are some helpful tips for cleaning stains on upholstered furniture?
A.) Blot a liquid stain with a white cloth as soon as the stain is noticed. Never rub a stain, as this can cause it to spread and become ground down into the fabric fibers. For a dry stain, spray a small amount of foam upholstery cleaner on the stain and use a soft brush to rub the cleaner into the fabric using a circular motion. Remove the excess foam and use a damp cloth to blot up the remainder of the foam. For difficult stains on upholstered furniture, contact an experienced company that uses top quality Furniture Cleaning Equipment to professionally clean soiled upholstery.
