In a previous post, we offered some reasons for keeping your upholstery in good condition, and today Fairbanks Cleanpro would like to give you a few tips on how to do just that—just in time to welcome all your holiday guests!

Vacuum

Regular vacuuming doesn’t just keep your upholstery looking clean, it also removes microscopic particles from the fabric’s fibers which can act like sandpaper and wear them away if not taken care of. Make sure to use your vacuum cleaner’s upholstery attachment for the best results, and if you have pets you could use an upholstery brush to remove hair before vacuuming.

Rearrange

Fluffing your cushions and rearranging them periodically can help make sure any wear and tear to your furniture is even, and avoids any one cushion becoming faded and dented (if it’s always in the resident couch potato’s favorite spot, for instance)

Keep out of the sun

Many fabrics, especially more delicate ones such as silk, are prone to fading if left in direct sunlight. Try to arrange your furniture so that it is in a shadier part of your home to avoid this.

Check the labels

Before applying any cleaning product to your upholstery, it’s essential that you check the manufacturer’s labels for cleaning recommendations, so as to avoid damaging the fabric.

Opt for natural cleaners

Natural cleaners are much less likely to damage your upholstery’s fabric than those that contain bleaches and other harsh chemicals. You can make your own natural cleaning solution by mixing together white vinegar, baking soda, water and lemon juice.

Treat stains immediately

Even if your fabric has been treated with a stain-repellent, it’s of paramount importance that you clean up any spills or stains as soon as possible to avoid them becoming permanent.

Have them deep-cleaned

It may be wise to have your upholstery deep-cleaned by a professional every so often, especially if there are stains you cannot remove, or your furniture is retaining odors you can’t get rid of.

If your upholstery needs a little professional help to get back to its best, you can rely on Fairbanks Cleanpro to provide the best upholstery care and carpet cleaning in Fairbanks. Call (907) 388-7768 to find out more about our services.
