Upholstery Cleaning: Tips and Tricks

Is there anything more embarrassing than having a guest come over to your home, leading them into your living room and realizing, right before they sit on the couch, that you have a giant stain right near where they’re sitting? Life happens, and it’s completely normal to get stains and spots on your upholstery, but having those spots and stains visible when you have company come over can make you feel like a bad house cleaner. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help with your next upholstery cleaning.

Squeegee!

Have you ever seen those squeegee tools that are designed to get the water off of windows or glass while you’re cleaning them? Did you know that they can be incredibly useful if you have a pet? It’s true! Use a squeegee to pull the pet hair off of any upholstery in your home, or in your vehicle. You can then vacuum up all of the clumps that you have leftover. As a bonus you can actually use the squeegee to do what it’s intended for as well, making it a very versatile tool to have in your home.

Baking Soda

We all know that our grandparents used to use baking soda for, well, just about everything. Did you know, however, that baking soda is a fantastic way to get rid of smells in your upholstery? Simply sprinkle the baking soda on the piece of furniture, or upholstery, that smells bad and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Make sure, during that time, that no one else uses the furniture. After it’s remained the required time, just vacuum it up and you’ll find that the smell should be gone.

Professional Carpet Cleaning 

Professional carpet cleaning can be a great way to clean spots and debris on your upholstery. Did you know you can even use small ones in your car? The only problem with this is that you either need to fully purchase a cleaner or you need to rent one from a local store. Not only can this be a hassle, it can get expensive. That’s one reason why it may be a good idea, if you have quite a bit of upholstery cleaning to do or a seriously stubborn spot, to hire a company like Silver Olas to help you get things looking like brand new again. If you take care of little spots and stains when they happen, and have your upholstery cleaned once a year or so, you’ll never have to be embarrassed when guests pop by!
