Breathe new life into an old lounge with our couch and upholstery cleaning tips

Breathe new life into an old lounge with our couch and upholstery cleaning tips

Did you know your couch or armchair is usually the dirtiest piece of furniture in your home? Unlike beds, which are usually safeguarded by a mattress protector, lounges are subjected to regular skin contact. Even if stains are not visible, your couch will collect hair, dust, dead skin and other particles. If left alone, these contaminants can shorten the life of your lounge. Here’s how to keep your sofa clean to ensure you and your family can enjoy it for many years to come.

Couch and upholstery cleaning tip 1: the vacuum cleaner is your best friend

Even if you are vigilant about who can and cannot be on the couch to prevent stains, the dust will soon make your furniture look dingy. Without regular vacuuming, the dust will slowly weaken the threads that hold the fabric together. Use your vacuum’s upholstery attachment to lift the dirt and debris out of the fabric. Ensure your attachment has soft bristles so it does not damage the upholstery.

Couch and upholstery cleaning tip 2: choose safe cleaning products

Deep cleaning can eradicate stains or particles that a vacuum can’t get. The supermarket shelves are full of different cleaning solutions but the fabric will respond and react differently to each. Read the label carefully and take note of the chemicals used. It’s important that you pick the right one, especially if the couch is upholstered with delicate material. Some people react to certain chemicals so non-toxic products are preferred.
