How Do I Keep My Fabric Sofa In Good Condition?
Fabric sofas are soft and comfortable. They also work in most interiors, this includes modern, contemporary and even traditional living rooms. So, how do you make sure your fabric sofa stays in the best condition.
Vacuum your sofa regularly - To avoid a pileup of dirt and debris on your fabric sofa, it is recommended to vacuum it on a regular basis. To prevent damage to your sofa, we recommend using the upholstery attachment and using a lower suction setting.
Dedicated cleaning products - When you encounter a serious stain on your fabric sofa, you can use a dedicated fabric cleaner to remove the stain. There are manufacturers that create such cleaning products for fabric sofas, although they can be a little more expensive than the average cleaning product. Nevertheless, normal cleaners will cause damage to your upholstery fabric.
Pilling remover - Did you know that you can remove pilling from a fabric sofa with a dedicated pilling remover? Of course, pilling is something that can be prevented through regular vacuum cleaning.
Avoid direct sunlight - Placing your sofa in direct sunlight - for example, in front of a window - can cause fading of the fabric. Too much sunlight can also weaken the fabric fibres, so it is better to place your sofa in a little bit of shade.
Get a professional clean - Some sofa manufacturers provide you with an annual cleaning service, which will keep your sofa in pristine condition. However, this service is usually accompanied by a monthly or an annual fee.
How Do I Keep My Leather Sofa In Pristine Condition?
Leather sofas are still counted among the most popular sofa materials out there. However, leather is quite different from fabric, so the maintenance of this kind of sofa will be different too. Here is how you keep your leather sofa in the best condition possible.
Use saddle soap - Saddle soap is a specific kind of soap for leather. When you encounter a stain on your leather sofa, a mixture of water and saddle soap can remove most stains. Of course, not all stains are easy. For example, inks are notoriously difficult to remove. Some people will recommend a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab, but you need to be careful with this. If the rubbing alcohol ends up on the leather, it could cause serious damage to the material.
Keep it dry - The worst enemy of your leather sofa is moisture. If the leather becomes slightly damp - or you have made it slightly wet to remove a stain - it is essential that you dry the leather as soon as possible. If not, the leather can crack or show visible signs of damage.
Purchase some leather treatment - Nowadays, leather creams and treatments are widely available in stores. While not everyone gets these products to maintain their leather sofa, their use could actually extend the life of your leather sofa.
When applying a special leather treatment or a leather cream, always apply it with a clean microfibre cloth. Give the cream some time to work into the leather before you shine it. The purpose of this treatment is to moisturise the leather. When this is not used, the leather can show visible cracks over time, this can ruin the uniform look of your beautiful leather sofa.
