Upholstery is one of the hardest materials to get a stain out of. Most people agree that when it comes to spills and mishaps, the faster you can clean the stain the better chance you stand of removing it from your upholstery. For most of us, we do not have cleaning products and vacuums at the moment of a mishap, but you can still always hire a company for cleaning services. Tampa residents will get a good clean, but it could take a while for a company to come around there for letting the stain set in deeper.
Is There Anything I Can Do While I Wait for a Cleaning Service?
If you have a vacuum, you should use an upholstery attachment and move it from left to right in short, overlapping strokes. Its best to start from the top of the furniture and work your way down the piece. Moving from left to right will help cleaning nappy materials that can hold dirt like suede, corduroy, or even velvet.
When doing your own cleaning services, Tampa residents need to remove as much dirt as possible because some cleaners do not do well with dust or pet hair and dirt. Once dirt is removed, apply carpet or rug cleaner to the stain and gently rub the powder into the fabric with a dry cloth. Vacuum the powder away and repeat if the stain is still present. Because not to do it more than three times because it could potentially ruin your upholstery.
If You Feel Confident, You Can Try Wet Cleaning
If you are determined to effectively clean your furniture, cleaning with liquid products is the best but also the most dangerous! If you happen to use the wrong product, you could stain or damage your upholstery if you are not careful. When performing your own cleaning services, Tampa residents should start with a simple mixture of dish soap and hot water. Make sure not to use too much water, you are looking to dab the affected areas not drown it. If water and soup does not get the stain out, it may be time to hire a cleaning service professional who will have the best products to get your upholstery looking good as new!
