Here are 4 easy steps to cleaning velvet sofas
Cleaning your sofa depends on how often you use it and how you use it. It also depends of the kind of sofa and the kind of material it is upholstered with. In any case your sofa should be cleaned regularly to keep it in pristine condition.
Spot-clean your sofa as needed; it’s best to remove stains as soon as they occur.
Conduct a regular vacuum of your sofa fortnightly, especially if you have pets or someone in your household suffers with allergies or asthma. Make sure to vacuum under the cushions and in crevices to avoid an embarrassing pile up of dirt and debris.
Supplement a regular spot-clean and vacuum with an annual steam clean. Steam cleaning will kill bacteria, remove stubborn stains and lift scuffs and marks.
Most sofas come with a tab or tag – check this to determine the best cleaning solution for your couch. And don’t forget to spot test any cleaning solution you’re about to use in an inconspicuous spot.
How to Clean Your Fabric Sofa
Preparing your fabric couch for a spot clean is easy.
Thoroughly vacuum your sofa first. This will remove the main dirt and dust.
Take a lint brush and brush your fabric sofa to remove any lint and pet hair.
Remove stubborn stains using white vinegar mixed with water. Use a soft, microfiber cloth to gently rub in a circular motion.
Apply a mild laundry detergent mixed with water or a specialty upholstery product for an all-over clean and to sanitise/deodorise your fabric sofa. Be careful to avoid oversaturating and scrubbing your sofa or risk damaging the fabric.
Allow the fabric to air dry. You can speed up the process by opening a window.
Now your sofa is clean, grab a specially formulated stain guard spray to protect your fabric sofa. They repel liquids and prevent stains from sticking to the fabric.
