Having your upholstery professionally cleaned is a great way to prolong the life of your furniture and to get some of the brand new feeling back. But as with any investment, you want your upholstery cleaning to last as long as possible and look as fresh as it did when it got. Putting plastic covers on your furniture will go a long way toward preserving it, but who wants to live that way? Here are some tips to help you keep upholstery clean after a professional service without resorting to plastic.
Arm Rest & Slip Covers
Armrest and slipcovers help to protect the most wear-prone parts of your furniture without having to sit on plastic. You can sacrifice these items to daily use, as they absorb the brunt of the wear, oils, and dirt. Staying vigilant about keeping these items in place will go a long way toward preserving your furniture.
Regular Light Cleaning
Give your furniture a light cleaning on a regular basis. Dirt and oils will erode the fabric if left in- especially when furniture is used regularly. A dustbuster and a moistened rag are good enough for most fabrics.
Scotchgard is a great product that basically serves as an invisible plastic sheet. Scotchgard is a plasticizing agent that seeps into the fabric and prevents dirt and oils from working their ways into the fine fibers where it can grind and decompose your upholstery from the inside.
