The importance of cleaning your upholstery

Tips for taking care of your upholstered furniture.

Are you cleaning your upholstery? You should be.

Upholstered furniture needs as much care and attention as your carpets.

When facing the cost of living crisis, buying or cleaning used or existing furniture is much cheaper than buying new.

Not only will this preserve the colours and textures, but it will also help to remove stains and smells.

Especially if you have pets.

This is because prolonged exposure to the pollutants they leave behind can degrade upholstery.

But how do you even go about cleaning your upholstery? And what do you do if you stain an upholstered item?

ServiceMaster Clean has the answers.

How to clean your upholstery

For at-home upholstery cleaning, remove cushions and use a nozzle attachment on your vacuum for to hard-to-reach areas.

Ensure you beat the upholstery to loosen the dust and to get it all.

Once you’ve done this, plump up your seat cushions.

You should also be rotating your seat cushions often. But why?

Simple: Plumping and rotating help your cushions keep their shape and avoid premature wear.

Make sure you’re also airing out your furniture. Opening a window to allow fresh air to circulate eliminates the need for chemical air fresheners.

We understand that you probably want a room that gets good light.

However, do try to avoid any upholstered furniture in direct sunlight.

The reason for this is that it will degrade the quality of the materials over time.
