Upholstery Care 101: Tips for Keeping Your Furniture Fresh and Fabulous

Caring for upholstery is essential to keep your furniture looking good and lasting longer. Whether you have a sofa, chair, or any other upholstered item, here are some general tips for upholstery care. 

Regular Cleaning


Vacuum your upholstery regularly to remove dust, dirt, and debris. Use a soft brush attachment or a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment.


Treat spills and stains promptly. Blot the stain with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb as much liquid as possible. Avoid rubbing, as it can push the stain deeper into the fabric. Use an appropriate upholstery cleaner for the specific type of fabric.

But, where can you find your product's cleaning code?

Cleaning codes are typically found under the seat cushions! 

Protect from Sunlight

Direct sunlight can fade and damage upholstery over time. Use curtains or blinds to protect your furniture from prolonged exposure to the sun.

Rotate Cushions

If your upholstery has removable cushions, rotate and flip them regularly to ensure even wear and tear. This helps maintain the shape and appearance of the cushions.

Use Arm Covers and Slipcovers

Consider using arm covers or slipcovers to protect high-wear areas like the arms and backrests of your furniture. These can be easily removed and cleaned.

Remember that different types of upholstery fabrics may have specific care requirements, so always refer to the manufacturer's recommendations when available. Taking proper care of your upholstery can extend its lifespan and keep it looking fresh and inviting for years to come.
