You can do upholstery cleaning yourself

Cleaning the sofa and the armchairs can be a bit tricky, especially if the upholstery is made out of special fabric. Anything from leather and Swede to more common fabric like tweed of tartan should be carefully treated because you don’t want to ruin your whole sofa.

But don’t despair, you can do this at home, if you really think that the upholstery cleaning done by professionals is not for you. Here are a few tricks for you, in order to clean the upholstery in your house, with no difficulty.

First, you need to vacuum it…thoroughly. Get rid of any dust inside the fabric because if you don’t it will mess your entire work. Also, if you keep pets inside the house, make sure to remove as much unwanted animal hair, as possible. It has the same damaging effect as the dust.

Secondly you need to decide what kind of products you will use. If it is a liquid detergent, you will need to pay extra attention, so that the moisture does not get to the filling of the sofa, or the wooden part of it.

Also, pay attention to the kind of fabric the upholstery is made of. If it’s too valuable, I suggest you call in a professional team, and you can use this link to do it. Also, pay attention to the color, because if it’s a bright one, you will need a detergent that will not damage the color of the fabric, otherwise you will have darker spots and lighter spots on your sofa, and I don’t think you want that.

After deciding which detergent to use, you get right at it. Remember, using a liquid detergent for upholstery cleaning can be tricky, but all you need to know is that you have to be quick, and you should use a brush to quickly remove the stains off your upholstery.
