Upholstery Cleaning Tips

Reverse Cushions Regularly

Extend your furniture’s life by periodically flipping reversible cushions. Some seats get more usage than others, so changing cushions around will provide an even wear. An even distribution of wear and ultra violet light and can add years of enjoyment to upholstered furniture.


Vacuum regularly to remove surface soil. First lightly brush your upholstery down with a soft horse hair brush; this will loosen the particulate matter so it can be vacuumed.

Spot Clean

Blot all spills immediately with a clean white cotton towel: never rub, blot gently. You must be extremely careful with natural fibers such as cotton. Moisture on natural fibers can leave water marks that may be permanent. If you have a spill on a light colored natural fiber call a professional upholstery cleaning company.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

Ultra violet light can damage upholstery fabric, causing it to fade and deteriorate. Position your furniture so it is not in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
