How to Clean Your Couch
If you have a couch marked”W” or”WS,” you may possess the ability to use an upholstery steam cleaner. Before you get excited, consult with the manufacturer’s instructions for the steamer to see whether it’s OK to use it on your couch fabric. While,”W” and”WS” couches may possess the ability to withstand water, they can not always take the heat.
In addition, you may want to do a spot test on a tiny out-of-the-way region of the couch to ensure steaming won’t cause any permanent damage.
When it comes to figuring out how to steam clean a couch, you are really just going to follow the manufacturer’s instructions provided with the upholstery steamer. They if inform you what settings you may need to use.
There are a few tricks that may make your cleaning more effective , however:
- Vacuum your couch until you start to steam clean. After you’ve steamed and the couch has completely dried, vacuum it .
- Select a great day to steam clean your couch so that you can open the windows and air out the room.
- Some steam cleaners use microfiber fabrics to help pick up debris. You’ll want to change these out as you steam so you can pick up all of this dirt.
- After steaming, point a fan on your couch to make it dry completely.
- Wait until the water in the steamer cools before dumping it out.
Sally Steamer’s expertise and knowledge in handling unique stains guarantee you that those stains on your upholstery or stains on your clothes are removed without a trace.
How to Clean a Cloth Sofa for Stains
- Get to the stains quickly. The moment a spill or stain occurs, get to clean it immediately. Waiting too long before treating a stain – even a matter of a few moments – can cause the stain to set, making it more difficult to get out.
- Check the manufacturer’s recommendations. Before using any cleaning detergents or remedies, check the manufacturer’s directions for maintenance, which can usually be found on the sofa’s tags. Failing to use safe cleaning products could indicate permanently damaged upholstery.
- Assess the cleaning codes for your fabric sofa. You know those random letters on your sofa’s tags? These are really codes! Take a look at the table below for the list of codes – and what they mean.
- Use a dry brush to remove loose particles. Go over the whole sofa using a stiff brush with natural bristles to help loosen stains and bring dust and dirt to the surface.
- Vacuum. Before scrubbing and cleaning your fabric couch, use a hand-held vacuum to remove crumbs and any other loose particles. This will make it far easier to identify and focus on troublesome stains when it is time to clean.
- Clean with baking soda. Baking soda is not just for baking – it is also an effective cleansing treatment. In fact, sprinkling baking soda over the whole couch will help to eliminate odors and further loosen stains. You can also use a homemade baking soda solution for any areas of deep-set stains; in a bowl, mix together equal parts baking soda and water. For either the wet or dry solution, allow the baking soda sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Once the baking soda has fully absorbed the blot, vacuum it up with a brush attachment. And as with all types of cleaning solutions, always place treat a test portion of the couch before cleaning it fully.
- Spot treat with the recommended agent. Begin cleaning your couch with the suggested product. If you are unsure if the product falls within the recommendations, test a small area for any discoloration prior to proceeding. Whether you use a water-based cleaner or a solvent (or both), follow the directions on the packaging. If the instructions say it’s safe to do so, use a soft cloth to wipe out the remedy.
- Dry your fabric sofa with a soft towel. Pat down any moist areas with a dry towel to soak up the residual moisture. Gently brush off any remaining cleaning solution.
- Let your fabric sofa air dry. Let the upholstery air dry overnight, and revel in a new couch in the morning!
