It is necessary to regularly clean and keeps up with the maintenance of your upholstery to avoid bad smells and eventual damage to your furniture over time. This should be done on a daily basis because when stains are left in too long, it becomes more difficult to get them out. Household ingredients like baking soda have proved to be very efficient in cleaning stains and dirt and removing some smells but cleaning shouldn't be limited to this quick fix. Cleaning experts should be called on to do a perfect cleaning job that's as good as, and maybe even better than a revamp. For day-to-day cleaning of your upholsteries without professional help, here are a few simple steps to follow.
Begin cleaning by thoroughly vacuuming your furniture. Make use of a hand-held vacuum cleaner or attach a fabric brush/upholstery cleaner to a vacuum cleaner to get out as much dirt as you can from the upholstery, including corners and crevices.
Remove stains from your pieces by making use of commercial cleaners suited for your kind of upholstery. An alternative is making homemade cleaners, which are cheaper and less harsh to the materials.
First, remove matted and set-in stains by using a brush to scrape the dirt off a fabric upholstery. Then remove stains by mixing some dishwashing soap with warm water and spritzing on the affected surface. Dampen a small piece of clean cloth and tap some of the water into the upholstery fabric. Avoid using too much water as this can leave water stains and smell over time. Instead, squeeze out as much water as you can and rub the stains in a circular motion to lift the dirt. This method is suitable for synthetic upholstery. For an emergency and on synthetic fabric upholstery, use a cleaner made specifically for it or mix one part vinegar with three parts warm water and a bit of dishwashing soap. Lightly spray the mix onto the stain and scrub with a microfiber cloth until the dirt lifts. Moisten a different cloth with water and rub again to get rid of the soap.
Blot out any excess moisture on the furniture with a clean, dry towel or cloth. Leave it to air dry. You can speed up the process by directing the upholstery towards a source of air.
