If you’re like most people, cleaning upholstered furniture is an afterthought; but as every professional upholstery cleaner in Las Vegas, NV knows, taking care of upholstered furniture should really be at the top of your list of housecleaning chores. Why is it so important? For one thing, furniture is expensive, so keeping it from wearing out prematurely should be a priority. For another thing, the fabric and cushions of your furniture harbor any number of allergens and bacteria that can make you sick. So what can you do? Hiring a professional upholstery cleaner in Las Vegas, NV to clean your furniture periodically is a step in the right direction; but you should take the time to keep your furniture in good condition between cleanings.
1 – Fluff And Flip
If your furniture has soft cushions or pillows, fluff them like you do your bed pillows every few days to refresh the shape and loft of the filling material. You can even make it part of your evening routine so that you don’t wake up to a sofa or chair that already has a rear end-shaped dent in it. And whether your cushions are soft or firm, be sure to flip them over from time to time as well. If you have a couch that has three cushions, you know that the center cushion rarely gets sat on so be sure to not only flip these cushions but to rotate them as well. Flipping and rotating cushions basically doubles the amount of life you can get from your furniture.
2 – Vacuum Regularly
Think about the amount of dust that settles on your wooden furniture. Because you can’t see it on fabric, you probably don’t realize that the same amount of dust has settled onto and into your upholstered furniture. Though you might be tempted to ignore it, you shouldn’t because dust and dirt acts like sandpaper on your furniture that grinds into the material causing it to deteriorate faster. Regular vacuuming – and, yes, that means lifting the cushions – can remove most of the dirt that gets into your cushions. It will also give you the opportunity to find all of those things you’ve lost between the cushions.
3 – Remove Stains Quickly
When you see a spot or stain on your furniture, remove it quickly using either a damp cloth or one dipped in water mixed with a gentle, clear dish soap. Make sure that the cloth you use is lighter colored, or the same color as your upholstery to avoid transferring the color. You can also buy a stain protectant that you can apply yourself, preferably before the furniture has been stained. This will be especially helpful if you have pets or small children.
4 – Get Professional Help
Regular, professional cleaning by an upholstery cleaning company you trust can remove ground-in stains and germs that even your routine vacuuming and spot removal can’t get rid of. Your best choice is a professional who uses non-toxic, green cleaning solutions that are safe for everyone in your family and that won’t leave residue on your fabrics.
