clean your furniture with these 6 simple steps
Spring is an excellent time of year to spring clean your home, but if you missed that window, you could still take advantage of upholstery cleaning in Canyon Country

Summer is still a great time to deep clean couches and other furniture. In fact, there’s really no bad time to deep clean and remove dirt, stains, and dust from upholstery. 

Here are a few simple tips to keep your upholstery cleaning in Canyon Country fast and effective. 

Deep Cleaning Upholstery 

1 – Consistently vacuum. 

Remove all your couch cushions and give it a good vacuuming from top to bottom on a weekly basis. Use attachments to reach all the crevices and tough-to-reach spots where pet hair, crumbs, and dirt can hide. 

2 – Remember to polish wood and metal pieces

Of course the upholstered surfaces of your couch matter, but don’t forget hard elements like wood and metal. Wipe these non-upholstered surfaces down using a wood polish or gentle cleaning solution. 

3 – Know how to care for your specific type of fabric. 

Couches typically have a label with specific recommendations for caring for that fabric type. Common furniture labels are WS (safe to use mild detergent), S (dry cleaner detergent only), X (no water, vacuum only), and W (safe to clean with water). 

4 – Spot treat surface stains at first sight. 

As soon as they happen or as soon as you notice them, treat surface stains using a cleaner that’s safe for the fabric. We recommend a store-bought specialty cleaner or making your own using ¼ cup of vinegar mixed in ¾ cup of water and a couple of drops of dish soap.

5 – Give your upholstery time to dry. 

Start by avoiding the use of too much moisture in the cleaning process. This will help it to dry faster. When you’re finished, soak up any remaining moisture using a towel, then give your furniture at least a full day to dry before sitting and using it regularly. It can help to direct a fan at your furniture as it dries too. 

6 – Schedule professional upholstery cleaning.

Caring for your furniture between our visits matters but doesn’t replace the importance of professional upholstery cleaning in Canyon Country. Keep up with routine maintenance and spot-treating stains, then have a pro give your couch the deep clean it needs at least on an annual basis.
