Chances are you have a favorite spot to sit in your home. Whether it is a chair or sofa, daily, continuous, use can leave it soiled and not looking as good as it could. There are ways, however, to keep your upholstered furniture in good shape which in turn will extend the life of your furniture and save you money.
There are several ways you can remove stains and refresh the look of your furniture. These include the following:
- Clean up stains as they happen – The best time to clean a stain is right when it happens and before it has time to dry and set in. You will want to blot spills dry instead of rubbing them. Rubbing can damage the fabric. It is best to start at the edges of the stain and work your way in.
- Check the tags on your furniture before cleaning – Your sofa or chair should have a tag from the manufacturer. This tag will give you information about the types of cleaners you should and should not use. If the tag is no longer there, then you should be able to go to the manufacturer’s website online and find the information you need.
- Know the type of stain before you start cleaning – If at all possible, you will want to identify the stain before you start cleaning. Some types of stains can be removed with steam cleaning while others might need a chemical-based cleaner.
- Call a professional – If you don’t want to tackle the job yourself, call a professional. They have the equipment and training to help you remove any stain you may have. You might be happier with the results a professional can give you over doing it yourself.
