As we use them to watch TV and eat dinner, fabric sofas and chairs can easily get stained. Recliner, lounge, and dining chairs can be expensive, often costing thousands of dollars. You want them to last a decade, but it would be nice if they were in the same condition as when you bought them. When you buy an upholstery lounge sofa, the process of cleaning it starts.
Ask the Right Questions
Fabric upholstery sofa manufacturers have many fabrics available when designing their sofas. Most consumers don’t know what they are looking at, and only consider the shape, size, and colour. But you are not most consumers. Smart consumers know that some fabrics are easier to clean than others. Making smart choices now will ensure your fabric sofa lasts a lifetime. If you find a sofa you like, you should ask the sales associate what fabric it is made of. They may not be able to tell you the exact fabric make-up, but they can check their database or contact the manufacturer. You can order different fabrics to make your sofa. Some sofas come in a variety of fabrics.
Choosing A Fabric Lounge Sofa
You want to use 100% polyester for fabric lounge sofas. Polyester is very water-resistant and resists spills and stains. They tend to sit on top of the fibre, so are easy to clean. Avoid fabrics like cotton and viscose which are very absorbent and can trap stains. They are also extremely resistant to cleaning leather lounges. These sofas are made primarily from polyester and can be cleaned like a pro. They also offer a great place to relax. When you purchase your fabric sofa, make sure it is professionally protected. It should be done by a professional who uses a motorized sprayer. Then, use a horsehair brush to smoothen it. You should not be taken advantage of by someone spraying a can of paint from the supermarket on it.
How to Clean Your Fabric Sofa
First vacuum the sofa’s fabric with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting) vacuum cleaner. HEPA vacuum cleaners can remove microscopic particles from the air that other vacuums return to the atmosphere, which improves indoor air quality. Place a tarp under the couch to protect your floors from scratches, such as vinyl, tiles, or floorboards. Then, place a cotton dropsheet on top of the tarp.
A 10 L bucket is recommended. Also, get a microfiber cleaning glove and microfiber cleaning cloths. Mix 200ml of the cleaning product to 5 L water. If you are using Omegazyme, heat water. Use the cleaning glove to clean your hands.
Work in sections, starting at the top of your sofa and working down. You can use the top/bottom cushions that are removable or double-sided to set up a table and vacuum each one. Next, lay the cushions on a flat surface with chefs paper between them. After cleaning the entire sofa, take out the microfiber cloths. They will absorb as much water as possible. This is important as it will remove most of the soil and dirt from the sofa. Use microfiber cloths to dry every item until it is dry. Allow the sofa to air dry for at least 4-6 hours. You should clean the sofa every 2 years.
