Upholstery cleaning can seem like a chore, especially the scrubbing and the wiping! However, when you try to make something that seems like a daunting chore fun you forget that it was ever boring. Sofa cleaning is imperative, irrespective of whether the fabric is cloth or leather. It is often easier to clean leather as all you need to do is take a damp cloth and wipe it down, however for cloth sofas, it is a whole different ballgame. Usually, it is wise to clean your sofa at least once every couple of months, due to the normal wear and tear not to mention the dust that will accumulate.
It can become a bit of a pain thinking how to clean your sofa, especially if it is made out of cloth. The simple answer is to get sofa shampoo and a clean cloth, pour a small amount onto the cloth and rub it into the fabric. You will find that it lifts all the dirt and grime of modern-day living. However, sometimes this can become quite tiresome for you, so the simplest solution would be to hire a sofa cleaner from a local cleaning company that does all the hard work for you. Depending on how often you wish to clean your sofa, you can also buy sofa cleaning equipment instead of hiring it or hiring experts, so that you always have it when you need it.
Sofa cleaning can be made more enjoyable if you have someone to do everything with you! It can get a little boring doing cleaning on your own; hence if you have a friend or a family member that can lend a hand, you will find time goes much quicker. You can create shampoo at home for your cloth sofa by mixing warm water with washing up liquid and then scrub the sofa with it. When it looks like it is about to dry, take a damp cloth and wipe it over. This will save you so much on hiring a cleaning company and you can do it at any time of the day that suits you.
Also, ensure that you clean up any spilled mess on your sofa as soon as possible. The disadvantage to having something spilt on your sofa, especially when it is liquid, is that the fabric will absorb it relatively quickly. This means that it will leave a nearly permanent stain especially if it was something like red wine or a dip for your food. White vinegar works perfectly for surface stains; however you should always be careful to have good air circulation in the room as you don't want the smell of vinegar to permeate the space!
One of the best home remedy solutions for cleaning spills on your sofa or couch is baby wipes. Because they are incredibly gentle and hydrating, they don't damage the fabric as much. For more thorough sofa cleaning, it is advisable to use a steam cleaner to ensure that it lifts out all the grime and dirt. Many cleaning contractors use this as their default cleaning management system and this is the reason you end up with such a good result. Saddle soap can help leather sofas tremendously, especially as it seals up any cracks the leather may have had before you clean it.
All in all, your sofa is something you should take pride and joy in and cleaning it regularly keeps your house looking beautiful!
