How To Keep Your Furniture Like New

Having your upholstery professionally cleaned is a great way to extend the life of your furniture and to freshen up your pieces to make them feel like new. As with any investment, you want your upholstery cleaning to last as long as possible and look as fresh as it did when it got cleaned. Plastic covers on your furniture will go a long way toward protecting it, but who wants to live that way? Here are some tips to help you keep upholstery clean without using plastic covers.

Arm Rest & Slip Covers

These fabric covers help protect the most parts of your furniture most prone to wear without having to sit on plastic. You can sacrifice these items to daily use, as they absorb the impact of the wear, oils, and dirt. Staying on top of these items staying in place will go a long way toward preserving your furniture.

Regular Light Cleaning

Give your furniture a light cleaning on a regular basis. Dirt and oils will wear down the fabric if left in- particularly when furniture is used frequently. A dust buster and a damp rag are good enough for most fabrics.

Use Scotchgard

You’re more than likely familiar with this popular product that essentially serves as an invisible plastic sheet. Scotchgard is an agent that seeps into the fabric and prevents dirt and oils from working their ways into the fine fibers where it can grind and decompose your upholstery from the inside.
