Like everything else, furniture pieces also age with time and look worn out after days of use. If you remember the fresh brand new look of your armchair or couch when you bought it and compare it to what it is now, then you can easily make out the difference. From the fading up of the fabric colour to the stained areas to the bad odour that just became part of the furniture, upholstery without maintenance and proper cleaning, is ultimately fated to worn out. It is needless to say that no one of us would really want such upholstery in our home.

But replacing your upholstery with the brand new ones is undoubtedly an expensive affair and it is not practical to do so frequently. So, to give your furniture a fresh breath of life you need frequent upholstery cleaning rather than reupholstering the furniture pieces. Obviously trying some eco friendly upholstery cleaning is worth the effort instead of replacing them with new ones.

1. Timely And Regular Cleaning

Like the cleaning exercise that you regularly administer inside your house you need to do the same for your upholstery as well. You can clean the upholstery weekly basis or just once in every fortnight or a month, but you whatever the frequency of such exercise you need to make it a routine.

2. Vacuum Cleaning Regularly

If you are vacuum cleaning your floor carpets, you can do the same for your furniture upholstery and prevent the accumulation of dust and dirt in the upholstery fabric. Often palpable ingredients and invisible dirt accumulates over time behind our notice and regular vacuum cleaning can prevent this.

3. Treating The Bad Smell

It is not just the clean fabric of your upholstery that matters the most but the bad odour that clings to the fabric also matters a lot. In fact, certain odours if not treated quickly can really make the entire room atmosphere suffer. The odour that is resulted from spilling out of foods or beverages or the odour that comes from your pets, can equally make the interior atmosphere bad. You can treat bad odour by sprinkling baking soda after vacuum cleaning. Apart from such Do-It- Yourself methods there are also several ready to use odour treatment products in the market.

4. Cleaning The Stained Spots

For sticky and really tough dirt and stained spots you need more rigorous cleaning than usual. You should follow proper cleaning instructions for the fabric materials when administering any cleaning solutions. There are several upholstery cleaning Melbourne services that can help you get rid of tough stains quickly and without really harming the fabric.

5. Upholstery Repairing

A worn out upholstery that went through years of continuous use and wear and tear not only looks shabby because of stains but also because of certain parts that fall apart needing repair. Often, just a little repair can make them look tidy and neat again and you do not need to buy new one to replace them. Always repair the worn out parts as soon as you see them before they get bigger.

6. Hire A Professional Service

If you are too busy to follow a routine to do all these cleaning works and it seems tiring to spend holidays on such tasks, you can hire a professional service cleaning and repair service which can easily give your upholstery pieces fresh breath of life and keep them young for longer.

7. Always Give Priority To Fabric Protection

Last but not the least, of all important considerations about fabric protection when cleaning your upholstery, cleaning repeated stains and dirt spots from your upholstery fabric can cause irremediable harm to your fabric. Aside, these plastic made transparent fabric protectors you can also choose fabric spray for protecting your fabric as a smart option.
