The upholstered furniture in your home is unique and has different care needs than any other surface in your home. Unlike carpet, upholstery is thin and likely to wear and tear faster than other surfaces. If you want to get the most life out of your upholstery, it is helpful to know the best ways to take care of each unique surface. Today we will share with you a few tips and tricks that will help you extend the life of your upholstery and give it the proper care and treatment it needs.
Tips for Taking Care of Upholstery
Vacuum Your Upholstery Frequently: Though it can be more work to take a vacuum to the couch and other upholstered furniture than it is to vacuum the floor, taking time to vacuum upholstery will do the surface much good. Dirt and grime hide really well in upholstered furniture. Vacuuming frequently will help to eliminate dirt, dander, crumbs, and pet hair. Not only will your upholstered surface feel more comfortable and clean after vacuuming, but it will also improve the surface's appearance.
Rotate and Fluff Your Cushions: When you sit on the sofa, you likely sit in the same place and lean on the same cushions over and over again. Frequent rubbing and sitting on the same surfaces causes wear and tear to occur faster. One smart way to reduce wear and tear is to rotate, flip, and fluff the cushions. Doing this will keep your sofa from sagging, help it look newer longer, and extend the life of the surface fabric on your upholstery.
Place Upholstery Away From the Sun: The sun's rays can cause permanent discoloration to your upholstery. To avoid this damage and to help your furniture look newer longer, consider placing your upholstery away from areas that are regularly touched by the sun. If that is not an option, you may consider rearranging your furniture every once in a while so that each piece of upholstery has some time away from the sun. Another option is to have a fabric protectant applied. Here at Zerorez Greenville, we offer a premium fabric protectant that will help guard your upholstery against the sun's harsh rays.
