Upholstery Cleaning Facts You Didn't Know

A professional upholstery cleaner uses a heavy duty vacuum to clean a sofa couch.Keeping your upholstery clean is a process and it requires more than occasional vacuuming. While you must consider the material of your upholstery when developing a plan for your cleaning, you also want to avoid mistakes to limit the risks of complicated repairs or replacing your furniture.

The Needs Clean New Upholstery

When you bring new furniture or carpets into your home, you want to clean them thoroughly to prevent allergic reactions to the out-gassing process. Before a carpet or piece of furniture leaves the manufacturer, they use chemicals on the upholstery through a process called outgassing. It may cause allergic reactions, headaches, and an unpleasant chemical smell. Cleaning the upholstery allows you to avoid discomfort during the first weeks.

Liquids Should Never Sit and Soak In

Whether you accidentally spill wine on your upholstery or a pet decides to pee on your carpets, you do not want to allow the liquid to soak into the upholstery. By allowing the liquids to soak in, you let it reach the upholstery stuffing. At that point, you cannot neutralize the odors easily and may need to replace the upholstery stuffing to alleviating unpleasant smells. It also becomes more difficult to clean if you do not clean it immediately because it soaks in deeper and spreads through the furniture.

Certain Materials Require Specialized Cleaning Strategies

Upholstery covers a wide array of materials and objects. Depending on the type of material used in your upholstered furniture and belongings, the process of cleaning may differ. You want to evaluate the material to select proper cleaning agents and an effective method of cleaning up dirt. Pay particular attention to natural materials like leather, which may also require care after cleaning to replenish the oils in the material.
