Weekly vacuuming or light brushing is a fabric care tip that helps to remove soil and protect fabric from the embedding of dirt or grime between fibers which can increase abrasion and wear.
The life of upholstered cushions can be increased through periodic turning. The weekly reversal of loose cushions will allow even distribution of wear over a long period of time.
Upholstery Fabric Protection
Fabric protection helps to increase the useful life of upholstered furniture by protecting fabrics from soil and stains. Some fabric protections are mill applied and others can be applied in the store or at home. These do wear off over time, and can be re-applied after professional furniture cleaning.
A protective finish does not eliminate the necessity of proper fabric care. It modifies the absorbency and soil removal characteristics of a fabric. Loose dirt should be vacuumed and brushed away before it becomes embedded and harder to remove. Spills and stains should be cleaned away quickly by blotting with a white cloth.
Many upholstered furniture items have a manufacturers cleaning code, which were instituted in 1969. Code w does NOT necessarily stand for “water”. Code x – who knows? Code sw? No one has any idea what it means, and every manufacturer uses different codes. Because of this, and changes in cleaning methods over the years, many of these codes are now incorrect. At Accent American, we visually inspect the furniture to determine the type of fiber so we can accurately determine which is the best cleaning method to use to give you the best results.
We offer all types of furniture cleaning, including fine fabric and leather furniture.
