Do you remember when you first bought your furniture? It looked so new and fresh. Your furniture was the focal point of the room. But the days of your sofa and chair looking new may be long gone. The once-vibrant loveseat may be fading. Your armchair may be starting to smell due to the constant use. No matter how your furniture is aging, you probably don’t want old, faded, and smelly furniture in your home. You can always replace your old upholstery, but that is an expense you may not have the money for. The good news is there are ways to refresh your upholstery without spending a lot of money.
Do you have a couch that is fading or maybe a pattern that has gone out of style? A slipcover is a quick and easy fix for either one of these issues. Slipcovers come in a wide variety of colors and are easy to slip over your sofa. A slipcover will also cover up any stains you are unable to get out of your furniture. You can either buy or make your own slipcover. Just be sure that the slipcover fits your sofa.
Odors seem to linger in your upholstery. The odors come from set-in stains and pet odors, and your furniture takes a beating. One of the best ways to eliminate odors is by having a normal odor-eliminating routine. There are store-bought odor eliminators that work well. However, if you want to make your own odor eliminator, baking soda is a good choice.
When using baking soda, sprinkle some on your sofa after vacuuming. After letting the baking soda sit for 15 minutes, vacuum your couch again, hitting every place where there was baking soda.
Pillows are a great and inexpensive way to refresh a sofa you no longer love. Adding pillows will help update your couch to match the style of your house. It is best not to cover your whole sofa with pillows because you still want people to be able to sit down.
Over time, your furniture will start to get rips and holes in it. When you see a rip or hole start, fix it right away. The quicker you get to repairing your furniture, the less damage will be done.
One of the best things you can do for your upholstery is to have a professional upholstery cleaning. Upholstery cleaning has a lot of benefits. Since professionals use specialized equipment, you get a deeper clean that lasts longer. Professional upholstery cleaners also do a better job of getting rid of stains. Having your furniture professionally cleaned will extend its lifespan. If you are ready to refresh your furniture with a professional cleaning, then call the pros at All Brite Cleaning.
