Keeping your upholstery looking its best.
  • Avoid direct sunlight. Modern furniture fabrics are usually very resilient to sunlight. However, under extreme exposure, even these fabrics show signs of fading.
  • Plump up cushions often. Filling loses its ability to bounce back if not plumped up regularly. Plumping cushions will help them last longer.
  • Rotate cushions often. Cushions that are not rotated may experience premature and unnecessary wear.
  • Vacuum. Upholstered furniture should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dust and loose dirt.
  • Couches and chairs with removable covers can be washed in the washing machine or dry cleaned, depending on the material.
  • Clean spots and spills quickly, as fresh stains are easier to remove.
    1. To remove a spill, blot liquids with a dry, white absorbent cloth or plain white paper towels (no prints or colors). 
    2. Start at the outside of the spot and continue toward the center to prevent the stain from spreading. Continue blotting until the area is barely damp. Semisolids, like food spills, may need to be scooped up with a spoon. Solid, dried bits can be vacuumed up. Warning: do not scrub or use a brush. Scrubbing and brushes can damage the upholstery.
    3. Pretest your chosen cleaner on a hidden area of your upholstery.
    4. Follow the product’s directions carefully. Apply a small amount of the cleaner or white vinegar to a white cloth and work in gently, from the edges to the center. Blot; don’t scrub. Never use a brush. You may need to do this several times to remove the spot. 

To properly maintain your upholstered furniture, vacuum regularly, plump up and rotate cushions, as well as spot clean when needed. To keep your upholstery looking its best, furniture manufacturers recommend a professional cleaning every 12 to 24 months.
