Every homeowner wants to maintain a clean household, but sometimes dirt and stains seem to appear. It is important that you know how to clean your home properly, especially each piece of upholstery. The last thing you want is for a guest to sit in a chair is covered in set-in stains. Luckily, there are few simple ways to clean your upholstery so that they are beautiful and clean once again.
Take Out The Vacuum
When cleaning upholstery, especially in the case of set-in stains, it is best to start out by vacuuming. When you vacuum upholstery, you are getting rid of all of the dirt and crumbs as well as fading any stains. It is best to vacuum in short left to right strokes, making sure are doing overlapping strokes throughout the entire piece of upholstery. You want to make sure you are getting all of the tight corners of the piece of furniture.
Check The Material and Tag
One of the most important aspects of cleaning upholstery is the specific material. You cannot clean every material the same way; one material might be more delicate than another. It is critical that you check the piece of furniture that you want to clean for its specific cleaning code. Once you check the cleaning tag, you will know what kind of substances you clean your upholstery with.
Get it Wet
Depending on the material, all you have to do to get rid of some stains is to use warm water and mild dish soap. Make a solution of about a ½ a teaspoon of mild dish soap and warm water and use a washcloth to remove the stain. Take the damp washcloth and gently dap on the affected area. You want to avoid harshly rubbing the area because you will actually set the stain into the upholstery.
