We are used to periodically cleaning bedding such as covers, sheets, etc. because we are aware that we spend a lot of time in them, we support the face and we sleep. But we are not aware that we also spend many hours on the sofa or in the lounge chairs, we sit with the clothes on the street and the pets go up to them. If they are not cleaned frequently, they can be a very attractive place for the harmful particles to reproduce, which can affect our health. And many people do not follow the proper cleaning measures with the upholstery of the sofa or the seats.
Here are some basic tips for cleaning upholstery and difficult stains:
It is advisable to remove the powder weekly or every few days, to prevent it from accumulating in the tissues. An easy way to do it is by using the vacuum cleaner.
Never apply stain remover on the entire piece of furniture without first having tried it in a small area to check that the fabric is tolerant.
If stains are caused on the upholstery, they should be cleaned as quickly as possible so that they do not dry out and become impregnated in the upholstery.
Fresh food or drink stains are usually rubbed with a damp microfiber cloth with water or neutral soap.
If the upholstery of the sofa is removable, it can be washed in the washing machine to eliminate stains. Always at low temperature and with short programs.
From Texere we always recommend following the manufacturer’s instructions before washing the fabrics.
