It is important to know how to care for your upholstery if you want it to last longer and avoid permanent stains. Here are some tips for caring for your fabric upholstery (leather and suede will differ).
- Time is of the essence. Deal with any spills immediately! the first thing is to blot the stain (don’t rub or scrub!) to remove as much as possible and stop it from setting in a larger area.
- Turn cushions regularly
- Avoid exposing your upholstery to direct sunlight to avoid discolouration
- Do not leave printed items on your upholstery as this can often lead to dye transfer
- Regularly vacuum your upholstery and don’t forget to include…
- The cushion
- The arm rests
- The base of the sofa
