Tips and Tricks Offered by a Professional Upholstery Cleaner

Microfiber is a type of fiber made of nylon and polyester that is used in products as diverse as clothing, cleaning cloths, and furniture. Microfiber is a very durable, stain-resistant, and low maintenance material. However, no sofa is impervious to dirt. Over time, dirt and dust can build up into the fibers, making your sofa look rather dull. If this is the case, then you’ll be glad to find out that that there is a solution to your problem. However, before you start any physical work, check your sofa tag. If it says “W”, then it means that you need to use a water-based upholstery cleaner. If it says “S”, then you need to use a solvent-based solution.

Solvent-based solution

Fill a clean spray bottle halfway with warm water. Add a solvent such as vodka, rubbing alcohol, gin, or ammonia to the top. Shake the mixture, and start spraying your sofa with it. Make sure that you don’t soak the microfiber. Using a clean towel, work the solution into the fiber. The solvent will dissolve any grease particles while the water will push them out. With another clean towel, wipe the sofa clean. For the best results, consider working small areas at a time. This way, you can focus on dirty areas before the solution evaporates from the fibers.

Water-based solution

Fill a clean spray bottle with water, and then add a couple drops of liquid soap. Shake the bottle so that the solution becomes foamy. Spray the solution on the sofa, and let it sit for several minutes. The foam will loosen the dirt particles and push them out of the sofa. Using a clean towel, wipe the sofa clean.

 Some spots in microfiber sofas can be pretty hard to remove.
