Periodic cleaning of your upholstered furniture plays a very important part in ridding your home
of soil, bacteria and many other allergy causing sources in the home. Don’t wait until your furniture
looks dirty to clean it. Many stains and soiling are easily removed in the early stages before they are
allowed to set in. There are a variety of fabrics on the market from synthetic to natural fibers and each
may require their own method of cleaning.
Upholstery soiling and staining problems
Upholstery is different from carpet. This statement has been repeated in articles, classrooms and
textbooks for years. In many cases, the differences between types of fibers, constructions and dyes are
the most common aspects discussed.
There is another, less mentioned, difference that must be considered when cleaning upholstery:
Upholstery has different soiling and staining problems!
Today, many homes have a (family room) for these activities. But the results are the same: Furniture is
soiled and stained in ways never encountered before. Carpet is manufactured and protected at the factory
to protect against such abuse; furniture is rarely protected in this manner. Although there are various
protective treatments sold at the retail level, with very attractive guarantees, these products cannot
withstand the abuse most consumers give their furniture.

JohnsonCleaners Gold Coast 7 Tips To Keep Your Upholstery Fresh, Clean & Healthy
1. Vacuum dust & dirt from all fabric, cracks & crevasses so it does not cause abrasion to the fabric. Think
of how much dust would accumulate on a table if it were never dusted. That same amount is on your
sofa, too. You just can’t see it.
2. Reapply fabric protection after professional cleaning.
3. Rotate all loose cushions frequently to assure even wear. Most couch cushions are reversible but people
seldom take advantage of this. Every two weeks when you vacuum your furniture flip the cushions
over. This will spread out the wear and make your furniture last much longer.
4. Protect your upholstery from the sun. Ultraviolet light can cause deterioration or fading.
5. Keep pets off of furniture. Pet’s body oils rub offand are very difficult to remove.
6. Use caution with clothing such as Blue Jeans. Fabric dyes can transfer onto upholstered furniture.
7. If you have animals get a rubber dish glove. The dish glove will make it easy to remove hair from the
furniture. Simply put it on and rub your hand over the fabric. You will see that the hair bunches up into
clumps making it easy to pick up and vacuum up. Other options include wrapping tape around your
hand, sticky side out; using a clothing lint remover; or using a clothing brush to collect the hair.
