It’s that time again to start planning spring cleaning for your home in Port O’ Connor. This is a great time to organize and deep clean each of your rooms to get ready for the summer festivities. This is especially important if you live with pets or children. Unexpected spills, stains, and messes are more likely to happen. Unfortunately, the place that is used the most common is usually forgotten about: the furniture. A couch is the main place in your home that can get bacteria and allergens and at most is vacuumed every once in a while. This can contribute negatively to your health.

That is why it is crucial to clean your couches and other furniture thoroughly and regularly. Professional upholstery cleaning in Port O’ Connor is the best way to fully get rid of those bacteria and allergens, but there are also ways to properly maintain your furniture in between your cleanings to keep them safe and help them last longer. 


The Best Ways to Clean: A Fabric Sofa

There are a few different ways to tackle a fabric sofa, some are things that you should do regularly, and some at larger intervals or when a spill occurs:


Dry brush

The simplest way to keep your fabric couch clean is by using a dry brush. This will help loosen any crumbs, hair, or debris that is stuck to the fabric. 



Once you have loosened the debris a vacuum can suck it all up. This is a great thing to do if you tend to eat on your couch or you have a pet that sheds. It is a quick way to make your couch feel clean. We recommend a hand-held vacuum. 


Wash covers

This is not always a possibility for fabric couches. But a lot of fabric furniture has the benefit of being able to unzip wash the pillow covers in a regular washing machine. Just be sure to check for specific washing instructions to keep your covers in good condition. 


Use baking soda

If you don’t have the ability to wash the covers of your couch, baking soda is a great alternative. Sprinkling baking soda over a fabric couch can be a great way to remove odors and loosen stains, before vacuuming it up. You can also create a solution for a deeper clean or spot clean, with equal parts baking soda and water. Take care using baking soda on some upholstered surfaces like microfiber and leather.
