Keeping a sofa clean: Do it often and do it right
Category: Professional Cleaning
But, how clean is that sofa? After all, you wouldn't want to roll around on a dirty kitchen floor or sleep in a bed with filthy sheets, so why chill on cushions that are also playing host to countless invisible mites and other dirt?
The good news is that it's never been easier to clean a sofa. These days, there are a wide range of expert guides available on the internet, all aimed at helping you keep your sofa as clean as possible. Just as importantly, furniture makers have come to realise that, just as nobody wants to unwind on dirty sofas, neither do they want to spend ages scrubbing away at the fabrics. As such, most of them can now be washed both quickly and easily.
The first thing you need to do, of course, is make sure you're using the correct technique for the specific material. In most cases, this will be clearly labelled on a tag attached to the underside of one of the cushions. Be sure to pay close attention to this and follow the instructions to the letter - after all, using soapy water on a sofa that can only be cleaned using a vacuum or a solvent solution can leave your pride and joy ruined.
As a rule, gentler is always better. So, be wary of using harsh cleaning products and instead make your own, mixing vinegar and baking soda. Then dab this into the material - scrubbing may cause rips and tears - and leave it to do its work, only coming back to dab up any excess after ten or 15 minutes.
If, however, you have invested a large amount of money on your couch and are wary of ruining it through a botched cleaning job, then it's best to call in the experts. Professional cleaners will have significant experience working with all the different kinds of material, so you know you - and your favourite place to relax - are safe in their hands.
