Vacuuming Upholstered Furniture
Even though upholstered furniture hides dirt well, the grime and crumbs from daily life are still there. and if you have pets, their hair is too. Regularly vacuuming your upholstered furniture will help eliminate the dirt in your house. It also helps with the upkeep of your furniture.
How frequently you need to vacuum upholstered furniture depends on how often you use the furniture. Also, what the snack factor is. It is evident, the couch in front of the television is where children hang out daily. Additionally, it is where you have movie nights. It requires a higher frequency of vacuuming than the chair in the corner of the formal living room that completes the design of the chamber. For high traffic areas (especially the beloved pet’s favorite spot or places with a high snack factor) we recommend weekly or bi-weekly. For those low traffic rooms, every month or two is sufficient.
When vacuuming your upholstered furniture, you will need to use different attachments to your vacuum cleaner for the best results. Use the upholstery attachment for your vacuum for basic vacuuming. Remove cushions if applicable and work from top to bottom left to right. Put cushions back in place after cleaning all sides of each one. Remember to change the suction-level lower when cleaning delicate fabrics.
When necessary, use the crevice vacuum attachment tool for corners and edges. This small, flat head removes dust from tight spots and works well on upholstered furniture and several areas of the house too. On leather furniture, the dust brush attachment works best and keeps your leather furniture safe with its soft brush edge.
