Spring cleaning the living room can be a daunting task. There is a lot of furniture, accessories, and appliances to put away, so it is important to do the cleaning in small steps.
An important part of cleaning the living room is removing dirt and dust from the sofa. The accumulation of dust, coffee stains, and pet hair can turn once-glamorous living room furniture into dull, unsightly furnishings.
To help you solve the cleaning problems you’ve been putting off for the past few months, we’ve put together some tips and tricks for cleaning your favorite sofa. Here they are.
1. Know your sofa
Yes, you may be the one who sits on it the longest, but do you know the key features of your favorite sofa? If you still have the instructions that came with your sofa when you bought it, take a look at them and ask about the materials.
If you know the type of fabric and leather your sofa is made of, you can decide whether to clean it yourself or hire a professional couch cleaning in Palm Beach. Do some research or ask your dealer before you do anything.
2. Use cleaning products that are appropriate for fabric and leather
When cleaning furniture, don’t assume that one cleaning product will be enough for almost any cleaning task. If you have multiple types of living room furniture in your home, you should have a specific cleaning product for each chair. This will avoid the risk of your sofa becoming discolored because you didn’t read the label on the bottle or inadvertently used another solvent.
3. Be careful with DIY solutions
It’s a good idea to be cautious when cleaning your sofa yourself, as you often don’t have the knowledge and experience to do so. There are various blogs that offer home remedies for stains and dirt, but always make sure to sprinkle salt on them. If possible, use the product on the hidden parts of the sofa first before applying it to the exposed parts like the arms and backs.
