3 Tips for Caring for Upholstered Furniture

Last updated 6 years ago

With the proper care, your upholstered pieces will look like they just came from the furniture store. This guide gives you the tips you need to care for your upholstered living room furniture, so you can get the most use out of it:

Vacuum Regularly

Vacuuming your upholstered furniture is a great way to get rid of the dirt, dust, and hair that can hinder its appearance. When you remove the dirt before it falls into the fibers of the fabric, you can extend the life of the piece. If you have pets, you should vacuum at least once a week to get rid of hair and dander.

Act Fast with Spills

The best way to prevent permanent stains is to clean up spots and spills as soon as they happen. You should always start your cleaning regiment by blotting the area to remove as much excess liquid as possible. Next, blot on a gentle cleaner that is safe to use on your home furniture. When you have removed the stain, blot the area dry. If you cannot remove the stain on your own, you might want to have a professional cleaning service return the fabric to its original condition.

Flip the Cushions

Prevent uneven wear by flipping couch and chair cushions every few months. This will keep the interior fluffy and comfortable, so the furniture continues to be supportive.

With minimal care, your upholstered furniture can be part of your home for many years.
