Without our furniture, our house would not feel quite like home. That’s why we should always take care of our furniture, especially our upholstery. But even the most careful of us will need to do some upholstery cleaning eventually. If it’s not from stains or odors, then the upholstery may have general wear and tear. If you aren’t sure how to go about your upholstery cleaning project, check out these tips.
Before you begin upholstery cleaning, really look at your furniture. With stains, water damage, and other outside damage, there may come a time that there’s nothing worth saving. For the bigger damage, call a restoration company to come to take a look. Cleaners will know what can be saved and what should be thrown away. You will actually be surprised by how much can be saved by a professional cleaning.
Once you have a cleaning plan, you need to prepare before you can actually clean. This includes prepping the room to accommodate a cleaning procedure, especially if you hire a restoration company. You need good lighting and ample space to get around the piece of furniture. You should also cut any snags or tangles from the upholstery. This prevents a vacuum from sucking up loose strands and causing more damage.
Upholstery cleaning requires more than just a heavy-duty vacuum. Steam cleaning digs deep into the upholstery to grab dirt that a normal vacuum can’t get to. Because of this, restoration companies have specialized steam solutions that dissolve into the couch and make it easier for their vacuum to remove dust and other particles that have set inside the furniture. This restores color and life into the upholstery.
Did you know some stains and odors require specific cleaning solutions? There is no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why restoration companies have specialized detergents that will attack the stain or smell head-on. This upholstery cleaning is gentle and won’t harm your furniture when used correctly. Professional cleaners can completely remove unwanted discoloration, particles, and odors from your most delicate upholstered item.
