Upholstery Cleaning Tips

  • Regular vacuum your sofas, not forgetting too include;
  • The base of your sofa
  • The cushions
  • The arm rests
  • Turn cushions to prevent discolouring.
  • Move furniture if it is in direct sunlight to prevent discolouring as this may damage the appearance and fibres.
  • Don’t leave any newspaper or ink base items on your upholstery, as this may lead to dye transfer.

Regular Upholstery Cleaning & Maintenance

Get your upholstery cleaned professionally every 12-18 months, this will help to restore its colour, appearance and fabrics. It will also help to delay the wearing process.

Upholstery fabrics are more delicate than carpet fibres, so this is something that you should be aware of. Therefore, it is better if your sofa or upholstery is cleaned when it is lightly soiled rather than waiting until your upholstery is more heavily soiled and dirty.
