Fabric Protection Tips: Part 2

Maintaining the appearance of your upholstered furniture is easy and doesn’t require much time. By following our series of fabric protection tips, you can enjoy a great-looking sofa year after year. If you haven’t read the first article yet, you can find it here.

  1. Vacuum Regularly: To keep your upholstered furniture clean and free from surface soil, it’s important to vacuum it weekly. This helps prevent dirt from becoming embedded in the fabric. You can also use a soft-bristled brush to gently whisk away dirt, ensuring you don’t snag the fabric.
  2. Spot Clean: Accidents happen, but with prompt action, you can effectively deal with spills and stains. When a spill occurs, immediately blot it with a clean folded towel. Avoid rubbing, as this can spread the stain. In many cases, prompt blotting is enough to remove the stain, especially if the fabric has been pre-treated with a fabric protector.

Always test any spot cleaning product in an inconspicuous area first and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Use a mild cleaning solution applied with a soft brush in a circular motion. Once dry, vacuum the area to restore the fabric’s appearance.

  1. Protect from Sunlight and Pollutants: Excessive sunlight can cause upholstery fabric to fade and fray over time. Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight for extended periods, especially if the fabric is delicate, such as silk.

Airborne pollutants like cooking fumes and smoke can also harm your fabric. While it’s not always possible to avoid exposure, proper ventilation can help minimize the impact. Adequate airflow not only reduces the risk of fabric damage but also helps control odors, as upholstered furniture easily absorbs odors.

  1. Call a Professional: To ensure optimal care for your upholstered furniture, it’s recommended to have it professionally cleaned every couple of years, regardless of visible dirt. Regular professional cleaning helps maintain its original beauty and prevents deep-seated dirt and stains.
