Your furniture is a major part of your home’s decor, and it says a lot about you, so make sure it’s saying the right things by taking good care of it and keeping it clean! Valley Cleanpro in Phoenix have compiled the following tips to help you keep your upholstery in mint condition.

Clean up spills immediately

Most upholstery’s fabric has been pre-treated with stain repellants, meaning they’ll resist stains for a little while. That gives you the opportunity to clean up any spills and stains before they become permanent, but you still need to act quickly! Make sure to pause whatever it was you were doing and focus on cleaning up as soon as you notice a spillage.

Turn your cushions

Turning and rearranging your cushions will make sure that they wear evenly and prevent any one cushion from getting too worn or dented. Fluff up your cushions every so often too, to help them keep their shape.

Vacuum and brush regularly

Vacuuming your upholstery once a week is a good idea in order to remove dirt and debris which can damage your fabric’s fibers. Use an upholstery brush to help remove stubborn dirt or pet hair. 

Avoid direct sunlight and pollutants

Prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade fabrics, especially delicate ones such as silk, so try to keep your furniture in a shaded area of your home. Upholstery absorbs odors very easily, so avoid exposing it to smoke or odors from the kitchen if possible. Good ventilation is key to preventing this.

If you have pets, it’s important to try to train them not to jump on your furniture. Check out our tips on carpet care for pet owners, too.
