Upholstery is a nightmare to keep clean! Some people even resort to plastic coverings and a myriad of rules as to who can sit on what furniture. Stop worrying so much, Benicia Cleaning is here!
To increase the longevity of your high quality upholstery (to prevent permanent damage or very frequent cleaning) always clean up spills as quickly as possible. Sometimes this is difficult, but look into what chemicals do best for specific types of upholstery and if you or your loved ones are prone to spills, teach them how to handle spills on the furniture. The sooner a spill or mess is addressed, the less likely it will stain.
Some people don’t think to vacuum their sofas and curtains. This is a very important step in keeping your furniture clean! Grime, dirt, and dust can build up between the fibers of your favorite cushions, so vacuuming once a week can reduce the grime and increase the beauty of your furniture.
Sunlight can damage upholstery just like it can damage human skin. If you’ve ever left a sweatshirt in your car laying on the backseat all summer or left a hat on the back shelf of the car you’ve seen what sun can do to fabric. If and when possible, use curtains to prevent direct sunlight hitting furniture to prevent fading and fabric deterioration. That is usually irreversible.
When asked to inspect or clean upholstered furniture, our cleaners will vacuum the item first, followed up with a pre-treatment, and then cleaning specific for that fabric care specifications. Like with our other cleaning services, you are invited to inspect our work and we will discuss ways to prolong the results and schedule future visits.
