Effective Stain Removal Tips for Upholstery in Auckland

Prolong the lifespan of your upholstery by following these simple stain-removal tips. With proper care, you can add years of beauty and freshness to your upholstered furniture.

  1. Vacuum Regularly
    To prevent dirt and debris from becoming embedded in the fabric, we recommend vacuuming your upholstery on a weekly basis. This practice is particularly important for preventing soil buildup in dense pile carpets. While there are various types of vacuum cleaners available, such as plain suction, beater bar, and revolving bristle strip, they are primarily effective for regular cleaning rather than stain removal.
  2. Cleaning Frequency
    Carpet cleaning should be performed in moderation to avoid excessive wear and tear. Typically, well-maintained carpets only require professional cleaning once a year or when they appear visibly dirty or marked. At the first signs of dirt or stains, it’s best to contact our professional upholstery cleaning service in Auckland for thorough cleaning. Alternatively, you can use a high-quality stain removal agent if you prefer a DIY approach. Be sure to choose a reputable product as low-quality stain removal agents may leave residues that worsen the problem.
  3. Selecting the Right Shampoo
    When cleaning wool carpets, it’s crucial to use a neutral shampoo and avoid alkaline or household detergents. Additionally, steer clear of shampoos with an ammonia scent. To test the compatibility of carpet-cleaning shampoos, follow these steps:
  • Leave a small amount in a saucer overnight.
  • Pour off the excess shampoo.
  • Allow it to dry.
  • Check for any sticky residue that may attract house dust.

If you opt for a shampooing machine, carefully follow the instructions provided before attempting stain removal. If possible, remove all furniture from the room and thoroughly vacuum the area before shampooing. Allow the carpet to dry overnight before vacuuming again.

For light cleaning of small areas, aerosol foam shampoos can be used. Ensure you test the shampoo for sticky residue before applying. Spray the foam shampoo sparingly onto the carpet and work it into the pile using a moistened sponge or brush. Once the carpet is dry, vacuum the area.

  1. Absorbent Powder
    There are stain removal powders available, saturated with either solvent or detergent. After vacuuming, generously sprinkle the powder on the carpet, brush it into the pile, and then vacuum it out. It’s not necessary to remove all the powder from the pile, as it can help minimize further soiling. These powders offer a convenient way to refresh your carpet without wetting it. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using a cleaning powder.
