It is that time of year when many friends and family will be coming into your home and visiting for the holidays. Whether you are hosting a holiday party or a family reunion, there will be a great deal of foot traffic flowing through your home and with it a great deal of food and drink consumed. Every party host knows that spills are bound to happen, whether it is on the carpet or on your favorite piece of furniture, knowing how to properly clean up a spill will limit the chance of a permanent stain occurring.
Properly Cleaning Upholstery
Cleaning the upholstery on your favorite couch or chair might seem like an easy task to take on, but before you begin scrubbing at spilled wine or caviar, make sure you know what you are doing. Learning to properly clean your upholstery is an important skill to have under your belt to keep your home looking clean, beautiful and well cared for. Never underestimate the power of know how when it comes to properly cleaning upholstery. No matter how carefully you take care of your upholstery, accidents are going to happen, and those chances tend to increase during the holiday season.
Cleaning Upholstery Stains & Spills
Spills can happen very suddenly and unexpectedly, so it is most important to act quickly. When a spill happens, time is of the essence, and the faster you attend to the spill, the better chance you have of saving your upholstery from an ugly permanent stain. If you are lucky enough to escape the holiday season without a spill happening, then you still must consider the amount of dust and dirt that can accumulate on the surface of your furniture. The foot traffic that is coming into your home this holiday season will bring with it a great deal of dust, dirt and grime that will come into contact with your upholstery.
One of the most important steps to take before scrubbing your upholstery is to vacuum it thoroughly. Vacuuming your upholstery will remove the layer of dust, dirt and grime that is sitting upon its surface and prevent those materials from sinking deep into the fibers of your upholstery. If your upholstery gets wet before you are able to remove this layer of filth, your upholstery will take quite a beating.
