Cleaning Leather Sofas and Upholstered Chairs and Couches – Fabric Protection Tips

Did you know that cleaning leather sofas requires specialized care and specific cleaning products? It is very easy to damage your leather sofa when you try to clean it, so it is important to determine which type of leather your couch is made of and what type of finish it has.

When you vacuum your carpet, take a few extra minutes to vacuum your upholstered furniture. Remove the pads and vacuum them, and then vacuum the bed of the chairs and sofas. Use the crevice attachment to clean in the creases.

If your chair or sofa has arm covers, clean them regularly according to manufacturers’ instructions. While waiting for them to be usable again, use seasonally themed tea towels in their place instead.

If you have children who enjoy playing in the sprinkler or pool when the weather warms up, consider purchasing seat covers for your chairs and couches to keep them dry and clean.

Carpet Cleaning Tips

To help with spot cleaning a dried stain, vacuum the area(s) from all four directions. This helps remove the stain from the fibers. After this, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for spot cleaning a stain.

If you live in an area with sandy soil, you should vacuum more frequently. The sand particles sink to the bottom of the carpet and act like glass, cutting through the carpet fibers and speeding up its deterioration.

Sun can damage carpet. If you have carpet that receives full sun for the majority of the day, consider installing draperies or sheers to help lessen the impact. Window tinting will also help prevent fading.

If you want to clean your carpets and rugs without using potentially harmful chemicals, you should ask a professional about chemical-free cleaning solutions. These use ingredients such as sea kelp, distilled water, and vinegar to clean your carpets and are completely safe for the environment.

Did you know that the Carpet and Rug Institute recommends cleaning your carpets professionally at least once every 12 to 18 months? This includes deep cleaning them to maintain their look, feel, and quality.

When you change your vacuum cleaner’s bag, take a minute to look inside for loose carpet fibers. If you see clumps of the material, your cleaner is not cleaning deeply enough. Consider changing to a more powerful vacuum cleaner.

One of the easiest ways to prevent the amount of dirt and debris that collects on your carpets is to take your shoes off before walking on your carpet. You should also vacuum at least once a week to keep them looking their best.

One of the best ways to give your carpet a deep cleaning is to steam clean it. This is also known as hot water extraction and involves using a mixture of hot water and detergent to remove dirt and debris from your carpets.

What is FiberCare? FiberCare is an invisible, long- lasting finish that protects against spots, stains and spills. FiberCare works by impregnating fibers with co- polymer resins in a mineral spirit base. This means dust and dirt can’t get trapped within the fiber. Spills can be easily blotted up, dirt and grit can be more effectively removed by vacuuming or damp dusting, thereby, increasing fiber life. FiberCare can be applied to all fibers, new and old, even those that have been temporarily protected with mill level finishes such as Scotchguard or Teflon. FiberCare protects against both oil- base and water- base stains.
