Your home’s upholstered sofas and chairs can add beauty to your dining room and living room, but it’s essential to protect your investment by using the right care. Avoid issues before they begin by choosing the right kind of fabric, placing your furniture correctly in your room, and using the proper maintenance practices. If spots still occur, consider calling Hydro Clean Certified Restoration to use their state of the art equipment for a proper upholstery cleaning job. Here are a few reasons why upholstery cleaning and maintenance is so crucial for your home!
You can avoid issues with upholstered furniture before they arise by taking your situation into account when picking fabric. Consider who will be sitting on your furniture, and choose accordingly. If you have younger children and pets, or if your upholstery is in a high traffic area, pick a fabric like leather, or microfiber, for reliability and durability. Woven patterns usually hold up better than printed patterns, and high thread counts and tighter weaves last longer. It can also help with the upholstery cleaning process when you avoid furniture with light colors.
Protecting Your Upholstered Furniture
The number one way to protect your furniture is by having a protector applied to the surface. This is an option at most retailers when the upholstery is purchased, and a protector can be applied following professional cleaning. When you plan out the layout of your furniture within your room, take lighting into strong consideration as well. Direct sunlight can fade your upholstered fabrics, especially if the material is delicate. The best idea for upholstery cleaning is to use fade-resistant fabrics if your room has an abundance of sunlight streaming in from the windows. Cooking fumes and smoke can also damage your fabrics. If it isn’t possible to place furniture out of harm’s way, be sure to use proper ventilation. Upholstered furniture can also absorb cooking odors, but you can fight back against this with adequate ventilation. Hire the professionals from Hydro Clean to get the job done for you.
Dealing with Spills
Spills are something that happens, and it’s best to deal with them immediately for the best upholstery cleaning results. You can spot clean a spill by blotting up the liquid quickly. Use a clean, soft towel and gently blot the area. Don’t rub it, though. If a product is needed, use the mildest product to get the spill stain out of your upholstery and furniture. Apply whatever cleaning product with a soft brusher in a circular motion, then dry and vacuum. Again, if you feel a bit overwhelmed with the cleaning process and need a hand, Hydro Clean will give you the assistance you need!
