Get Your Upholstery Clean Ready for Summer!

Summer is here, and it's time to soak up the sun and enjoy outdoor activities. But let's remember our indoor spaces! As busy homeowners, we often overlook the cleanliness of our upholstery. Dust, stains, and spills can accumulate over time, making our cherished furniture lose its charm. Don't worry, though, because I am here to provide some easy and effective ways for you to get your upholstery clean and ready for the summer season.


So, Welcome to our Latest blog, “Get Your Upholstery Clean Ready for Summer! Let’s dive right into it:

1. Embrace the Power of Vacuuming:

Before you roll up your sleeves, start by removing loose dirt and dust from your upholstery. Vacuuming is a quick and easy way to achieve this. Grab your vacuum cleaner, attach the upholstery brush, and gently go over the surface of your furniture. Pay special attention to the nooks, crannies, and crevices where dirt tends to hide. You can do this simple step by yourself, and it will make a noticeable difference in the cleanliness of your upholstery.

2. Tackle Stains with Care:

Accidents happen, especially when you’re hosting guests and entertaining. If you come across a stain on your upholstery, don’t panic! Act quickly and address the stain before it becomes a permanent eyesore. For common stains like spills, food, or pet accidents, start by blotting the area gently with a piece of kitchen roll or clean cloth to soak up as much of the stain as possible. Avoid rubbing vigorously, as it may spread the stain further. Then, following the manufacturer’s instructions, use a suitable upholstery cleaner to treat the stain effectively. You can remove most stains yourself with a little patience and gentle care.

3. Discover the Magic of Steam Cleaning:

Steam cleaning is your secret weapon when it comes to a deep and thorough upholstery clean. Steam cleaners work by using high-temperature steam to kill germs, bacteria, and allergens, leaving your upholstery refreshed and revitalized. While professional steam cleaning services are available at Art of Clean, you can also consider renting a steam cleaner or purchasing one for personal use. Follow the instructions provided with the steam cleaner, and enjoy the satisfaction of giving your upholstery a professional-level clean in the comfort of your own home.

4. Don’t Forget the Pillows and Cushions:

Upholstery doesn’t stop at sofas and armchairs. Pillows and cushions play a crucial role in providing comfort and adding style to your living spaces. They also require regular cleaning to keep their freshness. Check the care labels on your pillows and cushions for any specific instructions, and if they’re machine washable, you can easily do it yourself. Toss them in the washer following the recommended settings and let them air dry. For non-washable items, gentle vacuuming or spot cleaning should do the trick. Pay attention to these smaller upholstery pieces that contribute to the overall look and feel of your home.
