Upolstery star

No furniture is immune to wear and tear. No matter how diligent you are about keeping your children and furry friends off of expensive upholstered furniture, at some point you’re likely to finds stains or dust have collected on it. Although many people are likely to clean their furniture with harsh chemicals, there are better choices that will leave your furniture clean and your family and the environment healthier.

Sometimes it is hard to see the build up of dirt on your furniture because you see it every day. Even if the fabric just looks dingy or worn, it is likely that it is in need of a deep clean. Dirt particles will, over time, build up and tear at the fiber of your furniture and that will take years off the life of your couches. Your upholstered furniture should be cleaned regularly to avoid this type of wear. If you add your furniture to your vacuuming list it will help take away some of the loose dirt and grime, but a deeper cleaning is necessary from time to time. Deep cleaning should be done once every three or four months.

Cleaning companies offer upholstered furniture cleaning, but you can also do it on your own. Make sure to check the manufacture’s cleaning instructions before you take on a cleaning project. Some materials will not react well to certain cleaning products, and you don’t want to burn a hole in the couch you were trying to clean.

You can make your own environmentally friendly cleaning products at home without spending much money. To make the solution mix 1/2 cup of biodegradable soap (not laundry soap) with 1 1/2 cups of warm water. Shake the mixture until you’ve produced a viscous foam. Apply enough of the foam to remove the dirt, but do not let the fabric get to wet. The best application device is a soft bristle brush. Mop up the excess moisture with a dry cloth and let the furniture dry. If you are battling a stain spot you can use a combination of club soda and hydrogen peroxide. Make sure to test how the fabric reacts by applying the solution to a hidden spot before addressing the stain. Always use cold water when trying to remove stains or dirt, but if you find a grease stain, use warm water.

If you are having trouble removing the spots with your homemade cleaning solutions, it may be time to contact a professional cleaning company. Make sure the cleaning company you hire uses only environmentally friendly cleaning products and can show you the products they will use before using them on your furniture.
