Upholstery Care & Maintenance

0

The best way to start is to vacuum your upholstery regularly. If  dust and dirt is allowed to sit on the upholstery too long it causes soiling. By not removing dust on a regularly it tends to mix with body oils embedding itself into the upholstery fibers.

Bright and pale colors usually get dirtier much faster than darker colors and will need to be cleaned more often.

An excellent cleaning aid is carpet and fabric protector, by applying fabric protection on new upholstery or upholstery that is clean and in good condition you’ll protect it from spills and dirt particles getting inside the upholstery fibers.

When fabric protector has been applied there is much higher chance of getting your upholstery back to it’s original condition.

Always use a good quality fabric cleaning product and make sure if you have a spill that you clean it up as soon as possible.

Never rub the fabric to clean it, always use a damp cloth and a blotting action to soak up the spills. Make sure you use a proper upholstery cleaner not general purpose household cleaners that could contain caustics or bleaches which could damage to your upholstered furniture.

Before using any cleaning products including upholstery cleaners, you should find an inconspicuous place and check the upholstery for color fastness and surface changes. Let it dry and check that no changes in color have occurred and that the upholstery is in good condition.

Be sure you check the manufacturers cleaning and care instructions before proceeding. 

Be sure to ask your Professional Carpet Care Specialist for “Carpet Shield” carpet and fabric protector.
