Upholstery Cleaning Tips: Victoria Carpet Care


There's nothing like new upholstery or furniture to freshen up your home.  You have made an investment and you want to keep it looking great... but how long it remains looking crisp and clean is entirely up to you. Follow this strategy to keeping soft furnishings looking fantastic year-round.

Preventative measures

• Vacuums aren't just for floors and those intimidating attachments they come with can actually prolong the life of your furniture. Use the upholstery attachment to vacuum soft furnishings on a weekly basis. The angle-tipped crevice tool is great for reaching sneaky areas where the evidence of daily use - dirt and oils - like to set up shop: namely, creases, fabric folds and tufted areas.

• Once a month, take cushions outside and beat them by hand. This will help prevent dust from settling into the fibres. When replacing cushions, rotate and flip them as you would a mattress to ensure even wear.

• Your Grandmother was on to something with the "no eating the living room" rule. If you've the determination to enforce a ban on food, drink and pets on the furniture, you'll avoid worry - and work - down the road. Take care with other less noticeable sources of stains, too: even newsprint inks can bleed easily onto fabric.
