Vacuum your upholstered chair weekly for general cleaning and to remove surface soil. This also prevents dirt from becoming embedded into the fibers.
Avoid Sunlight and Pollutants
Too much sun can damage your upholstery fabric, causing it to fade and even fray. Try to position it so that it doesn’t sit in the sun for extended periods of time
Using mild cleaner
If any spots or stains are noted, be sure to remove them right away using a mild cleanser. When cleaning the upholstered furniture, always start with the weakest solution possible, slowly building the concentration until the stain has been fully eradicated.
Use cleaner both clean and deodorize
Choose a cleaner that does not contain any harsh chemicals or abrasive elements. It is also a good idea to choose a cleaner that both cleanses and deodorizes.
- Before cleaning the upholstery, brush or vacuum away the loose dirt first. This will help to avoid rubbing in any existing dirt as the fabric is cleaned.
- A strong brush can be used to apply the cleaner to stained areas. When brushing the stained area, avoid rubbing or scrubbing the fabric too hard.
- After a minute or two the cleaner can then be carefully wiped away using a damp sponge or cloth.
- The upholstery should be carefully dried after it has been cleaned. Leaving a window open or running a fan will help the fabric dry more quickly and more thoroughly.
