Hiring a professional furniture cleaning company in Smyrna isn’t nearly as expensive as most people think. Not only is it an affordable option, but it also makes sense to let the professionals take care of your upholstery.
There are many reasons why you shouldn’t do your own furniture cleaning, such as the possibility of damaging your fabrics and not having the correct drying equipment. There are, however, still people who wish to try to do their own upholstery cleaning. Chem Dry of Tennessee, a leading furniture cleaning company, gives the following tips if you want to take care of the job yourself:
- Initial removal: Whether it is a dry or wet stain, the first course of action in any upholstery cleaning job is to immediately get a spoon or similar instrument and scrape the excess stain from the furniture. While not rubbing the stain deeper into the furniture, attempt to scrape off as much of the mess as possible.
- Vacuum: As always, a vacuum cleaner is a great tool in furniture cleaning. Vacuum the area of the stain. Use a dusting brush attachment first before vacuuming the area.
- DIY detergent: For an instant homemade cleaning solution, mix a quarter cup dishwashing liquid with a cup warm water and whisk it together to make a thick mix. Apply the detergent to the stained area and rub gently until the stain lifts into the foam. Rinse and dry thoroughly to ensure no mildew will grow in the affected area
The above DIY cleaning methods are no replacement for a professional cleaner. These steps may sound simple, but it will probably take quite a few hours to do (and you won’t get the results that a professional cleaning company can provide).
