How To Restore Fabric Upholstery?
In our range of upholstery accessories, you can find many products that will help you restore fabric upholstery. Whether you have an old fabric chair or sofa, there are many ways to restore the fabric to its former lustre. So, let us have a look at some great tips to restore fabric upholstery.
How To Clean Fabric Upholstery?
If your upholstery is not worn, but simply dirty, then a simple cleaning could be enough to restore your upholstery to its former glory. Of course, there are still some things to think about, so you do not damage the material.
Before you use any kind of product, start by using some basic tools such as a fabric brush and a vacuum cleaner. When this is not enough to revive your fabric, then it is time to look at special upholstery cleaners.
Remember that there are various products to clean upholstery - this goes from leather to linen fabrics. When you choose an upholstery cleaner, always make sure it matches your particular upholstery before you use it.
Some upholstery can be removed from the furniture and soaked in a cleaning solution. When you do this, always make sure that you rinse out the fabric thoroughly. Any product remaining on the fabric could cause discolouration.
How Do I Remove Stains From Fabric Upholstery?
Removing stains from upholstery usually requires an appropriate cleaning product. It is advised to test the product on an inconspicuous spot to ensure it does not cause any discolouration or additional stains. Once the product is deemed safe, you can use it to remove stains from your upholstery.
When removing stains from your upholstery, always make sure that you do not rub the stain. Instead, blot the stain with the product until the stain has completely disappeared. Of course, you should also refer to the guidelines provided by the product manufacturer.
How Do I Protect My Fabric Upholstery Against Dirt And Grime?
At Spotlight, you can find several products that can help you with this. These products are often referred to as fabric or upholstery protectors. These products will add a protective layer on your fabric, giving it some additional protection against dirt, stains, and grime.
When you have a home with pets or children, be aware that a fabric protector can only protect your fabric so far. Regular maintenance will be needed to prevent damage to your upholstery.
How Often Should I Maintain Fabric Upholstery?
Fabric upholstery should be vacuumed every week or so, this to remove any dead skin cells, dirt, or dust from the material. If you have a home with pets, you should vacuum your upholstery fabric at least twice a week.
Even when your sofa does not look particularly dirty, remember that fabric fibres can trap dirt just underneath the surface. In other words, you will not always notice just how much dirt your sofa has accumulated over the course of the week. So, while it may be tempting, never skip on the weekly maintenance.
When vacuuming your fabric upholstery, always do so with a soft brush attachment. Using the regular attachment can cause the fabric to snag or it may cause some unpleasant scratches on the fabric. If you do not have a soft brush attachment, you should be able to get one for your vacuum cleaner for a really affordable price.
How Do I Keep Velvet Upholstery Clean?
Velvet requires a little extra maintenance compared to other materials. To make the material look pristine week after week, always use a velvet brush during your regular maintenance. By using the velvet brush, you do not only remove unwanted dirt and dust, you also restore the natural sheen of the material.
