Apr 26, 2022 | Blog

Your living room couch is one of the most essential pieces of furniture in your home. Not only does it provide comfort and style, but it also serves as a place to relax and unwind. However, for your couch to last for many years, you need to take proper care of it. 

In this blog post, we will discuss cleaning and maintenance tips that will help keep your living room couch looking its best!

One of the most important things to care for your living room couch is to vacuum it regularly. This will help remove dirt, dust, and other debris accumulated over time. It is also important to spot clean your couch as needed. If you spill something on your couch fabric, clean it up immediately. You can use a mild soap and water solution to remove most stains.

In addition to regular cleaning, you should also have your couch professionally cleaned every 12-18 months to help prolong the life of your couch and keep it looking its best. When having your couch professionally cleaned, ask for a deep clean that will reach all of the nooks and crannies.

It is important to protect your couch from the sun. Ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the fabric of your couch, so be sure to keep it out of direct sunlight. You can also use throw blankets or furniture covers to help protect your sofa from the sun when it is not in use.

Always make sure you have fabric cleaner on hand in case of spills, and blot the spill immediately. Be sure to test any cleaners in an inconspicuous spot first. You should also avoid using harsh chemicals on your couch, as they can damage the fabric. When it comes time to deep clean your couch, you can hire a professional upholstery cleaning service or do it yourself with a rented steam cleaner. Finally, follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully when using any cleaning products or machines.

Also, as a general rule of thumb, you should avoid food and drinks when relaxing on your couch. However, we all know accidents happen. If you spill something on your couch, be sure to clean it up immediately. You can use a mild soap and water solution to remove most stains. For tougher stains, you may need to use a stronger cleaning solution or even call in a professional.
