Furniture Upholstery Cleaning Services
Regular dusting and vacuuming of your upholstered furniture can help you keep them looking as good as the first time you bought it. Make sure that you will be using the correct cleaning products on your upholstery and follow the instructions on their labels. If your furniture has leather upholstery there are effortless ways of keeping them clean and shiny as new.
Vacuum clean seat and back cushions and loose pillows. Re-arrange them if necessary to even the wear of your furniture. Clean all non-fabric materials with a clean damp cloth. If your upholstery needs to be shampooed, follow the instructions on the label of the cleaning product. You may also use a homemade solution made of a mixture of liquid dish detergent and warm water. This preparation must be whipped using an egg beater or mixer to make dry suds.
Now use the fabric attachment or brush of your vacuum to clean the upholstery. Just remember to keep the furniture completely dry while shampooing it to avoid damage caused by mildew. Clean small areas on the furniture at a time and then wipe clean using a clean damp cloth. Let the upholstered furniture dry out completely. Open windows and place electric fans directly on the furniture. You can also use a dehumidifier or you may turn on the air-conditioner to help dry up the upholstery. If it’s sunny or warm outside, you can let it dry out under the sun. This may even help eliminate odor and mildew from the furniture.
