Creating a Memorable First Impression: Carpet, Upholstery and Furniture Cleaning Tips & Tricks
Whether it’s the carpet, upholstery and furniture in your home or in your business, first impressions count for everything! Ensuring your carpets and furniture are looking their best will brighten the room and give it a fresh feel, which is why regular carpet, upholstery and furniture cleaning is so important. Using our expertise in specialist cleaning, we want to offer some quick tips & tricks when it comes to carpet and upholstery cleaning.
Carpet Cleaning Tips
When removing those pesky stains from your carpet, we recommend making a paste by mixing equal parts vinegar and baking soda, with a touch of warm water. Scrub the stain with the mixture and a sponge until the stain fades and disappears.
General Carpet Cleaning Tips
A simple, general clean of your carpet can really freshen up the room. Mix one part laundry detergent with ten parts of warm water, and scrub with a medium-bristled brush. Leave your carpet to dry before vacuuming it thoroughly, and voila! Carpet cleaning can be meticulous work, but the difference is worth the work!
Upholstery Cleaning Tips
Test Your Cleaning Products First
ALWAYS, and we mean always, test your cleaning product first, do this on a small patch of your upholstery to ensure it doesn’t stain or damage the fabric.
A buildup of dust is inevitable, and after a while, it can make your upholstery look grubby. It’s important to remove any dust regularly to prevent stains and to remove the dust we recommend you use a soft-bristle brush or a vacuum with an upholstery attachment.
MORE Stubborn Stains
Whether it’s a splash of red wine, makeup or food spills, there are plenty of opportunities for upholstery to become stained as a result of everyday wear and tear. To remove said stains, wet the edges of a clean cloth and dip one end into a mixture of one part vinegar to two parts laundry detergent. Carefully scrub the stain and then use the other side of the cloth to wipe off the detergent mixture. Finally, dry the cleaned area with another cloth.
