Cleaning upholstery fabric isn’t the most enjoyable of things, which you look forward to. Although simple, upholstery cleaning is easy to get messed up if done wrong. That sofa in your lounge is the most utilized piece of furniture in your home. It is on your sofa that you sit, sleep, do your homework, and watch TV.

Until you have used a particular cleaning product, it is impossible to predict its impacts on your upholstery. The cleaning product you intend to use might or might not get along with your upholstery fabric, or the cushioning underneath. All of these things impact the outcome of your cleaning process. The smart approach would be to apply that product to an unobtrusive portion of your upholstery. Pretesting will indicate the outcome of applying this product to the whole thing.
Some upholstery covers are removable, for which they have zippers. Is it really necessary to remove those covers while cleaning? No, removing cushion covers isn’t a good idea. Want to know why? Cushion covers shrink when washed separately, and it gets tougher to put them back on. You might even end up with a torn cushion cover. To protect your covers, it is wise to clean them while they are still in place.
When cleaning your upholstery fabric, going easy will work in your favor. Refrain from using harsh cleaning products and methods. For example, do not try to pressure wash those stubborn stains off your furniture. You shouldn’t try to brush them away with a hard-bristled brush either. Never, make the gruesome mistake of putting your cushion covers in a washing machine. Always refer to the manufacturer’s manual to clean your upholstery.

To stay on the safe side, all you need is a cloth and some mild soapy water. In the event of hard stubborn stains, refer to the cleaning instructions in the manual provided by the manufacturer.
You will definitely maintain the look of your upholstery fabric and increase its longevity, by following the aforementioned tips.

I would give 10 stars if I could. Filipe removed the nastiest looking, massive stains from our light beige leather office chairs, re-dyed them to the exact same color, and put extra topcoats to make them more resistant than new. All of this in 1 day. Wow, impressed!!!! Neil E.
