Reasons To Avoid Cleaning Upholstered Furniture On Your Own
Upholstered furniture can be tricky. Sure, it looks great and can compliment any room in your home. However, keeping those aesthetically pleasing pieces clean requires a certain amount of skill, precision, and knowledge. Knowing this...why do so many homeowners choose to clean upholstered furniture on their own? In today's DIY culture we often struggle with the idea of outside help. This is true in many different aspects of life, from home repairs to maintenance. But the next time you look at those dingy couch cushions or that faded armchair, here is a tip: leave the cleaning to the professionals. There are many reasons to avoid cleaning upholstered furniture on your own.
Where to begin? One reason to avoid a DIY project has to do with the type of material your upholstered furniture is made of. There are synthetic and non-synthetic fabrics, colourfast and non-colourfast fabrics, linens, velvets, woven materials, and so much more. Each type needs to be handled in a different way in order to protect the integrity of the piece. This ensures that you will not run into any issues that compromise the overall appearance. If you aren't sure how to deal with synthetic fabrics vs. non-synthetic (or natural) fabrics, it is best to leave cleaning in the hands of someone who does. Not only will this be a lot less stressful for you - but it will also ensure that your upholstered materials look their very best.
On that note, it is also important to factor in the look and feel of your upholstered goods. Certain pieces have different textures and colours. Your favourite chair may be a bright red or a deep navy shade...those colours need to be protected. Reaching for a generic furniture cleaner or sending the cushion covers out to be dry-cleaned are both major no-nos! Doing so can actually cause serious damage to your furniture. Yes, even to your favourite chair. Wondering what can happen? Improper cleaning methods can cause colour bleeding, discoloured areas on your furniture or drapery, changes to the texture and so on. This is true even if you have performed a test spot already or have cleaned the piece yourself in the past.
You want your furniture to look great and last for as long as possible. Guess what? Cleaning upholstered furniture on your own can actually add years to the life of each piece - in the wrong way. After a professional cleaning, the colours appear more vibrant, the patterns stand out again, and the furniture looks newer than it actually is. The opposite is likely to occur when someone without experience attempts to tackle the cleaning process. Using the wrong techniques, cleaning supplies, or tools can affect the way the upholstery look. That's right.... in an attempt to give your grandmother's old couch new life, you may actually be making it look even older.
