This video on furniture cleaning has some good tips on how to maintain your upholstered furniture. Regular vacuuming of your furniture is the best way to keep it looking like new. If you live in Tampa FL you know that the main soil on your furniture is sand brought in from the outside. Vacuuming once a week will help keep sand abrading your upholstery and help furniture keep its luster.
The video shows some wet methods for cleaning furniture. If you’re going to use a wet solution to clean furniture Chem-Dry of Tampa FL recommends a water and distilled white vinegar mixture. About one cup of vinegar to every gallon of water. Vinegar has a low pH and will help remove a lot of surface soil while helping to deodorize your furniture. If you decide to wet clean your furniture try using a spray bottle and a clean white towel. First spray your furniture with water vinegar solution and then gently remove the excess moisture with the towel. If you have a wet/dry shop vacuum you can use it to remove the excess moisture and improve your cleaning power by 60% or more.
Most furniture manufactures recommend a professional cleaning at least once a year some require to maintain furniture warranties.
