Well, it’s that time of year again; where the kids have been off for two straight weeks and family has come in from out of town. Now that everything is just about back to normal you might tend to see a number of stains on your carpet and your upholstery. There are several viable options for you when it comes to the cleaning of your upholstery. This is one of the things that you want to be sure to keep up with because getting a new couch is not the cheapest option when you’ve just had a glass of wine spilt on it. Therefore, My Elite Carpet Cleaning and Repair wants to help provide you with affordable solutions. Here are some simple steps to clean those stains out of your upholstery.
- Always Vacuum
The first defense for any stains is a weekly vacuum routine. So, before the stain ever comes onto your couch there should have been a good routine of vacuuming it once a week. This is essential because dirt and dust on the couch that can’t be seen is often the cause of what holds onto stains the most. By keeping up with vacuuming every week there is less for the stain to latch itself onto making it easier to come out.
- What Is It?
No doubt you have various types of furniture in your home and how to clean each of them will be different. The first thing that is in order in trying to remove a stain on your upholstery is to figure out how to clean each type of material. Furniture can come in diverse types of materials:
Each type of material will have a preferred method of cleaning that allows for the stain to come out more readily and completely. Before trying a certain type of cleaner, always first test it in an inconspicuous spot first.
- Steam and Clean
Many of the materials that are listed above can be steamed, loosening the stain and making it more responsive to treatment. Always make sure beforehand that the steam won’t harm the material or furniture. Also determining what the stain is can help in how to go about cleaning. Wine and soda will have different methods of cleaning, so not only do you need to take the material into consideration but also the type of stain it is.
