It used to be very annoying when our moms used to tell us not to put our feet on the furniture. However, there is a reason behind this, and is upholstery or the fabric on your furniture can accumulate sir, crumbs, stains, and bacteria more than you can imagine. By this time I guess you already know that your upholstery works like a magnet for all the dirt and dust.
There are many ways of upholstery cleaning in Canberra. No matter how careful you are there will always be dust and dirt. It important you keep your upholstery clean to extend the life of your furniture.
Deep cleaning of the upholstery is a bit different than regular house cleaning tasks. The fabric is more delicate and absorbent than most of the other household fabrics. That is the reason you need to know properly about deep cleaning upholsteries.
Methods of Upholstery Cleaning
Clean Upholstery according to the codes
Before you start with the cleaning process, try to divide the upholsteries according to the codes. The codes can be W, S, WS, and X.
The codes represent the following:
W= Water Based
S= Solvent Based
WS= Water or Solvent
X= Professional Cleaning Required
This will help you to understand what the upholsteries are that you can clean on your own and what areas are you need professional house cleaning help with.
Vacuum the upholstered furniture
The first method of cleaning upholstery is to vacuum it that too often. Dirt that accumulates on the fabric does not only affects the appearance of your furniture, it also wears away the upholstery fibre. You can use a stiff bristle brush that will make the dirt and debris loosen which will help you in deep cleaning.
Use water and soap
Water and soap are highly effective for upholstery cleaning. This is an old house cleaning method in Canberra. You can take a small amount of soap and mix it with water. Then apply the mixture gently on the upholstery and you can use baby wipes for wiping the dirt away. Baby wipes are highly effective in materials like leather, polyester, and cotton.
A lot of moisture is not the best method
If you are one of those who believe that using a lot of moisture will help in deep cleaning, then let me tell you, it’s not the best method of house cleaning in Canberra. Try using a water fee solution for removing the stains and then use water partly to clean a particular area of the upholstery.
Clean throw blankets and cushions
When you are cleaning upholstery don’t forget to clean all the throw blankets, cushions, and pillows. You can use a washing machine. Use cold water and a gentle cycle. If the pillow and cushion covers are removable then wash them separately.
