Protecting Your Upholstery: What You Need to Know

Whether you have kids and pets or are just fighting the daily battle against dirt and dust, it can be tough to keep your upholstery clean. Thankfully, you don’t have to figure this out on your own. At SteamEx, we’re here to help. Check out our list of ways you can help keep your upholstery looking new for as long as possible.

Consider furniture covers.

We know what you’re thinking–but we promise, furniture covers have come a long way in recent years. Using a cover on your furniture protects the upholstery from both stains and daily wear and tear, and gives you the chance to switch up your style at a low cost. When your furniture covers get dirty, just pop them in the wash for a quick refresh.

Use spot treatments.

If you get a stain on your upholstery, it’s key that you treat it right away. Keeping a spot cleaning treatment on hand is a great way to help get stains out fast. Remove any excess material from the stain, and then carefully follow the directions on the packaging. It’s a smart idea to do a patch test in a hidden area with a stain remover long before you need it–the last thing you want is for your stain to get worse because your cleaner doesn’t agree with your upholstery fabric.

Make use of throws and blankets.

Not loving the look of furniture covers? Strategically using throw pillows and blankets can also do a great job of protecting your upholstery. Replacing your blankets and pillows every few years can be fun as it allows you to switch up your look for a much lower cost than getting new furniture.

Call in the pros.
