Ways to Care for Your Upholstered Furniture

People often ask how to care for their designer upholstery. Here are some tips for maintaining your sofa’s appearance and quality:

  • Vacuum the cushions at least once a week, to remove dust and other particles that can cause discoloration or damage.
  • Use a damp, not wet, cloth to clean the fabric of your sofa.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals on the fabric as they may damage it and cause stains.
  • Always use a dry cloth when cleaning up spills on the carpeting of your sofa.
  • If you have pets, then to clean up any accidents they may have had on your furniture, use an enzyme cleaner specifically designed for pet stains. If you have children, in order to keep your furniture looking fresh and inviting, buy a protective cover or slipcover.
