Upholstery Cleaning Tips

It is important to vacuum your upholstered furniture at least once a week and clean up fresh stains as soon as possible. Stains and spills can be quickly removed by baby wipes – this is a gentle and quick solution that will not make the fabric wet.

To understand how to go about your upholstery cleaning, look at the instructions on the fabric tags:

  • W – means you need to use a water-based detergent and a steam vacuum
  • WS – means that the fabric is good either for a water-based detergent used with a steam vacuum or a dry-cleaning detergent
  • S – notifies you of the requirement to use only a dry-cleaning detergent
  • O – stands for organic, which means you can use cold water for upholstery cleaning
  • X  – means that the fabric may be cleaned only using a vacuum or a bristle brush. This kind of textile may be needed to be cleaned by a professional upholstery cleaning service.

Why should your upholstered furniture be professionally cleaned?

Even when your upholstered sofa or chairs do not have any visible dirt or stains, the upholstery absorbs much dust and bacteria, which makes the upholstery worn out and deteriorates the quality of air in your home. Applying soap or other chemicals for upholstery cleaning, you risk damaging a fabric and leaving unpleasant sticky residues on its surface. Thus, it is better to call a professional who will use safe and effective cleaning techniques.     

How often should you have a professional upholstery cleaning?

Experts recommend cleaning upholstery at least once a year to help maintain its longevity and improve air quality. No need to wait for the furniture to get visibly dirty: the dirtier it becomes, the more difficult it becomes to restore it to the original state.

How long does it take furniture to dry after cleaning?  

Upholstery normally dries in a couple of hours. For some fabric, fillings, and cushions it may take longer though.
