Upholstery Cleaning Tips Tampa FL

In Tampa FL Your furniture cushions, arm rests and decorative pillows are the areas of your home that require the most vacuuming. Your upholstery requires the most Attention and the least likely to get it. Here are some helpful upholstery cleaning tips to keep your furniture as clean as possible between professional cleanings.

Be Proactive About Vacuuming 

Vacuum regularly to better manage the pet hair, dirt, and germs that can soil your cushions, arm rests and pillows. No matter what kind of material your couch is made of, regular upkeep will keep it in the best condition possible. Vacuum twice a week, but don’t just vacuum the surface of your cushions, vacuum in areas that aren’t easily seen. Utilize your vacuum’s accessories such as the detachable brush and crevasse wand to get into those hard to reach places.

Toss Throw Pillows in the Dryer

This is a quick and easy tip to help keep throw pillows looking their best. Many furniture owners make the mistake of bypassing care for the pillows by concentrating solely on the cushions. Tossing throw pillows in the dryer will clean off the dust and fluff the pillows as well.

Spot Check Daily and Apply a Treatment to Spills Immediately

Spills happen, make sure to treat them immediately. You don’t need an expensive cleaner for a quick fix. All it requires is some common household products. Mix a quart of warm water with 1 teaspoon vinegar, 1 teaspoon ammonia and ¼ cup of liquid or powdered laundry detergent. Apply just a tiny bit of the frothed mixture to the affected area, and blot with a moist towel.Keep your family members away from the area until it’s dry.
