One of the top reasons why you should think about hiring a professional service for sofa and upholstery cleaning in Trafford is that array of unsightly stains which you just can’t seem to get off by yourself.
Since furniture in most cases is upholstered with fabrics which do not respond well to traditional cleaning and washing methods, it is probably a better idea to hire a professional cleaning service to treat the stains and deep clean your upholstery by using the appropriate solutions and technologies. The professionals can remove even the most persistent stains and can reach to all of the crannies and nooks in the furniture which you can’t reach without the help of special tools. Since the chemicals used can be high in levels of volatile organic compounds, which can cause respiratory or other health problems, make sure that the area is well ventilated, or that you hire a cleaning company which uses green and safe solutions for cleaning upholstery.
But if you have decided to treat some of those spills on your furniture and clean them by yourself, there are some tips which you might want to follow in order to avoid damaging the upholstery and to successfully remove all staining.
To keep your sofas and other upholstered furniture clean and nice at all times, make sure you clean the cushions with a vacuum cleaner, a brush or through beating them outdoors, in order to remove as much dust and dirt as possible.
If you notice a stain or spill, then there are some things to do in order to successfully remove it. We have collected a number of eco-friendly and harmless for the health solutions to use for some of the most common types of spills:
If you spill red wine on your sofa or other piece of furniture, then after first dabbing up as much of the wine as you can with a paper towel, use a clean cloth dabbed into a tablespoon of eco-friendly dish washing solution mixed in a cup of hydrogen peroxide to gently treat the wine stain. With soft dabbing motions keep repeating the process until the transfer of red wine to the cloth you are using disappears entirely.
If you happen to spill your coffee on your sofa, then a green solution to efficiently remove the spill and avoid staining includes mixing an egg yolk with warm water and applying it carefully on the spot. Keep applying it without rubbing it too hard until the stain is gone. Then rinse it off with a damp clean towel until all the egg yolk is gone.
A good eco-friendly solution to clean nearly any type of stain on your upholstery is to use a one-to-one solution of eco-friendly dish washing solution and warm water and whip it up into a nice froth which you can apply on the stain with a clean cloth. Rinse out with a damp clean rag after you are done treating the stain.
Remember that the best way to get your upholstery perfectly clean is to use the services of professional cleaners. The same goes for deep carpet or mattress cleaning as well.
