How to Clean Upholstery: 5 Essential Steps

If you are tired of looking at dirty or stained upholstery but don't know how to clean it, Zerorez® can help! Accidents, spills, and everyday use can leave the upholstery in your Las Vegas home or office looking drab and dirty-we get it! To help you keep your furniture looking its best, here are five essential steps on how to clean your sofa upholstery at home or the office.

1. Thorough Vacuuming

First, give your upholstery a good vacuuming to remove any surface dirt and dust and prevent any further soiling and staining. It's important to vacuum your upholstery regularly to help maintain its appearance.

2. Mix Your Cleaning Solution

Grab a large bowl and a whisk. Combine two cups of warm water, three tablespoons of liquid dish detergent, and three tablespoons of white vinegar. Whisk vigorously until you have the right amount of foam on top.

3. Break Out the Bubbles

Using a large spoon, scoop out the bubbles you've whisked up and apply them to the entire surface of your upholstery. Be sure to use just the bubbles, leaving the liquid in your mixing bowl. Let sit for 3-5 minutes.

This method will restrict the actual amount of liquid applied, which may cause severe water stains. The dish detergent and vinegar in the bubbles will offer the maximum stain lifting and cleaning.

4. Remove the Dirt

Once you have given your cleaning mixture time to do its job, grab a soft, very absorbent cloth and lightly dampen with luke-warm water. Wipe your upholstery in one direction from one side to the other. If dealing with sofa cushion upholstery, use a clean, fresh cloth for each cushion.

Once you have removed the cleaning solution, allow drying completely. To reduce the risk of water spots, place a fan directed at the newly cleaned area for shorter drying time.

5. Call on the Professionals

Upholstery can be a breeding ground for harmful contaminants and microbes that can cause a variety of issues like asthma, allergies, odors, and more. It's important to work with a professional upholstery cleaner, like Zerorez, to help keep your sofas and furniture clean and looking good for years.
