June 7, 2017 - Tips For Keeping Your Upholstery Clean

The cushions, arm rests and decorative pillows that provide you and your family with comfort daily are some of the most dirty items in your home. Due to this fact, it only makes sense that your upholstery demands constant upkeep. At the same time, it’s the area of the home that doesn’t get as much cleaning attention as it should. Here are some helpful tips to keep your upholstered furniture as clean as possible (in between the professional cleanings, of course!) 

Become Proactive About Vacuuming 

First and foremost, vacuum regularly to better manage the cat hair, dirt, dead skin, and germs that can soil your beautiful cushions, arm rests, and pillows. No matter what kind of material your couch is made of, regular upkeep will keep it in the best condition possible.  Vacuum daily, and make sure to be very thorough. We mean don’t just vacuum the surface of your cushions. Utilize your vacuum’s accessories such as the detachable brush which will allow you to get inside the crevasses for a detailed cleaning. If you’re too busy to do this yourself, enlist a teenager in the house to vacuum the upholstery as their after-school duty, and entice them with a special treat at the end of a week’s work and a job well done!

Toss Throw Pillows in the Dryer

This is a quick and easy tip for keeping gorgeous throw pillows to look their best. Many furniture owners make the mistake of bypassing care for the pillows by concentrating solely on the cushions. Tossing pillows in the dryer won’t just allow you to give them a quick clean to eliminate dust. It’s also a clever way to fluff them up and look their best!

Purchase Slip Covers and Arm Rests

If you struggle with frequent, unmanageable spills that seem to occur every other day of the week, a slip cover can be a great way to protect your upholstery. Visit your local department store and choose from a diverse selection of brands, colors, and prints that match your home décor.

Spot Check Daily and Apply a Treatment to Spills Immediately

Spills happen no matter how careful you are. But when they happen on your upholstery, make sure to treat them immediately. You don’t need an expensive cleaner for a quick fix. All it requires (to treat most stains and spills) is some common household products. Mix a quart of warm water with 1 teaspoon vinegar, 1 teaspoon ammonia and ¼ cup of liquid or powdered laundry detergent. Apply just a tiny bit of the frothed mixture to the affected area, and blot with a moist towel.Keep your family members away from the area until it’s dry.

March 2, 2016 - What's Hiding in Your Upholstery

We rest on our couches and chairs every day, but how often do we think of cleaning them? Dust and dirt particles stick on these surface areas, and get moved deeper into the materials, the more time we go without having a proper clean. Most people don't even comprehend they are there since they are so incredibly small. This makes cleaning your upholstery vital to your, and your family's, health.


Body oils, and grease, from both humans and animals connect and keep hold of your couches. Body oils are easily transmitted to the head cushions and armrests of the furniture and can cause really serious harm to the shielding finishes found on them.
Soils are virtually unavioidable. Soils consist of dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibers from plants, brought into the home by people and pets. So if going outside is a typical event for you and your family, chances are your couches are being affected by many diverse types of soils every day.
The inks from newspapers and dyes from denim can move onto fabric in a process called dye transfer. Additionally, the risk of ink from a leaky pen or the driven toddler who loves to draw should not be forgotten.
Just remember that your upholstery needs to be cleaned once a year, at least! When you're totally ready to get a refreshing new perspective on your upholstery, make sure you call us!
