Your sofa is one of the most loved places in your home! However, it is also one of the most used and abused places in your home too. Between binge-watching all your favorite tv shows, visiting with friends and family, or even eating some of your meals, your couch faces a lot of wear and tear. If you love your couch and want to maintain the life of your upholstery, be sure to include these five tips in your upholstery cleaning!
1- Rotate and Fluff Your Cushions Regularly
Cushions that are being sat on all the time can cause dents and wear in high-contact areas. Rotating your couch cushions often will help to evenly distribute the plumpness of your seat and back cushions. Rotating and fluffing your couch cushions often will help prevent that lumpy couch.
2- Vacuum Regularly
Vacuuming seems pretty simple, but it goes a LONG way! You would be surprised about how many crumbs and dirt bury themselves in the cracks of your cushions. Regular vacuuming will keep your upholstery looking fresh because it helps reduce the inevitable buildup of dirt and grime.
3- Place Upholstery Away from the Sun's Rays
Because of how harsh and blinding the sun is, the sun's rays can likely sun-bleach or ruin the fabric of your couch. When your couch or sofa is in direct sunlight, it can ruin your upholstery quicker. To prevent this from happening, arrange your furniture in a way that your upholstery is not in the sun's rays.
4- Clean Up Spills Quickly
Spills happen to everyone. However, no one appreciates them! The worst thing to do is let spills and messes sit on your upholstery for a long period of time. Once it soaks in deep into your upholstery fabric, it will cause staining and is very difficult to get out. Treat spills immediately by dabbing the mess with a white washcloth. Opt to use a white washcloth instead of ones with patterns or colors because they have the risk of transferring to your upholstery. Dab to absorb the spill, be careful that you do not rub! Quick spot treatment can prevent the spill from soaking in and staining your couch.
