Select your fabric carefully

If you follow a few simple rules, you can dramatically increase the lifespan of your upholstered furniture. The use of your upholstered item should be the first concern when choosing a fabric. For example, more durable fabrics like olefin might be more appropriate for families with children and pets, while more delicate natural fiber fabrics such as cotton might be best suited to lighter-use homes or locations.

Vacuum your upholstery

Dirt acts like sandpaper on your furniture’s upholstery. Using your furniture, grinds those particles against the fabric, damaging it. Weekly vacuuming will help minimize that damage.

Turn your cushions

There was a reason Grandma always turned the cushions on her sofa. Like flipping your mattress, turning your cushions will help spread the wear more evenly and keep your furniture looking better longer.

Fabric Protection

Fabric protectors obviously help protect fabrics from soil and stains. Some are applied at the time of the fabric’s manufacture and others are applied at the store, or can be applied at home. Fabric Protectors do not make your upholstery immune to dirt and spills. It only make it more difficult for dirt and stains to permanently damage the fabric. It does not put a plastic cover on it. So even if your upholstery has fabric protection, the above suggestions still apply.

Fabric Cleaning

The furniture industry adopted a cleanability code that can help you determine the best way to clean your upholstery. If your furniture carries this code, it can normally be found under the seat cushion. When cleaning a spot yourself, ALWAYS pretest the cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area. This will prevent any discoloration or shrinking problems. For overall cleaning professional cleaning services are your best bet. They have the equipment and knowledge to clean your furniture while protecting its upholstery. Under no circumstances should you ever remove the cushion covers or arm caps for separate cleaning. This could destroy your backing or cause shrinking or discoloration, leaving you with cushions that no longer match your couch!
