Before we get started, let’s first talk about what you should do. Get into the habit to regularly vacuum your upholstery. Dust, debris and other particles can get embedded in fabric over time. For a fresh, clean appearance, a simple vacuuming can work wonders. Rotate and flip your cushions frequently. You may think it’s simple, but this helps spread wear out evenly so there isn’t one area that people avoid like the plague.

A spillage is a prime example of when you need to be quick. Accidents will always happen. The key is to act quickly. It is possible to remove the stain by blotting it with a soft detergent on a clean towel. You should avoid rubbing on the stain as this could make it worse. Avoid unsightly staining in the future by acting quickly.

We’ll now talk about what you shouldn’t do. Do not ignore manufacturer cleaning instructions. Cleaning agents and methods are different for each fabric, which can lead to irreparable damages. To keep your upholstery in top condition, always follow the provided guidelines.

Do not expose your furniture for long periods to sunlight. Over time, the sun’s light can fade fabrics and cause them to weaken. Use blinds and curtains on furniture that is close to a window.

Another thing you should avoid on your furniture is harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaning agents. The chemicals can damage the fabrics’ natural oils, colors and textures. They will make them look dull. Use upholstery cleaners made for delicate fabrics to maintain the vibrancy of your furniture.
