Restore your couch’s former glory in no time!

Have you ever looked at your couch and thought, “Ugh, I need to clean this thing”? Well, you’re not alone. A lot of people don’t know how to properly clean their couches, which can lead to a lot of dirt and dust build-up. In this blog post, Fresh Home Cleaning is going to show you how to clean your couch and make it look brand new! So read on for tips and tricks on how to do your couch cleaning the right way.

When should you clean your couch?

Since it’s one of the most used pieces of furniture in your home, a deep couch cleaning will make the difference when it comes to transforming your home into a comfortable and welcoming space. At Fresh Home Cleaning, we strongly recommend you clean your coach every six months, to say the least.

On the other hand, this applies only to major clean-ups. You should regularly vacuum and clean your couch and furniture. Especially if you have kids and pets!

STEP 1: Check your couch’s label!

Every couch is a world, and you must pay attention to yours. Before starting the cleaning, in order to learn perfectly how to clean your couch, you should know well what cleaning products you can use on its fabric and which ones will damage it.

When you are a hundred percent sure of the type of products you can use, you are ready to go to the store and get them or do it yourself if you want to use your own green cleaners!

STEP 2: Vacuum it all

To apply any kind of cleaning product, make sure you vacuumed and brushed away every unwanted particle so when you apply the cleaning product the dirt will not spread all over the surface making it worse than it was. You may use your vacuum’s upholstery tool or a handheld vacuum.

STEP 3: A Spotless Couch

Since your coach is a highly used piece of furniture either by you or by the rest of your family and guests, it is likely to be full of stains. From coffee or wine to your pet’s footprints, each spot will make the process of coach cleaning way more difficult. But don’t despair!

If the stain on your sofa is recent, what you can do is apply a mixture of water and dish soap and rub quickly and gently. Be careful not to damage the fabric! If the stain insists on staying, try using a special solvent but only as long as the label on your sofa says it won’t damage it.

STEP 4: Baking soda?

We all know that soap and water are not always useful, so it’s always good to have baking soda on hand! Baking soda will kill germs and get rid of unwanted smells, and most stains.

After your couch is fully dry, sprinkle baking soda all over it and wait 20 minutes or so before vacuuming it. That should be it for odors and stains to be over!
