How to Clean a Fabric Sofa at Home
Fabric sofas look great and can be cozier than others. They also become a major nightmare when it comes to cleaning them. As everybody knows that spills are bound to happen from time to time so you also going to need to know how to clean a fabric sofa.
When it comes to figuring out how to clean a couch or sofa, we must say cleaning it with the steamer is the best option till date as not only it delivers perfectly cleaned sofa but also wipes out up-to 100% germ & bacteria.
Almost everybody has questions of how to do it? So here are the steps we need to follow to get sparkling sofa or couch at home without spending a penny:
Remove hair, fur, dust, dirt and debris from the sofa or couch frame and cushions. Smaller debris should be vacuumed out.
Treat tough, set-in stains using a steam cleaning stain remover or use Taski- TR101 if you are not aware about other liquid cleaners. Allow the pre-treatment to sit on the stains for 15 to 20 minutes.
Prepare your steam cleaner by filling-up the water tank with the appropriate amount of water and steam cleaning solutions. Plug the machine in and free the hand-held upholstery attachment from the base of the unit. Make sure you check operating instructions for use of your upholstery attachment before you begin. We recommend people to use range from Karcher’s steam cleaners as they are the world leader in the same segment and their domestic equipment are cost effective too.
Check the couch for colorfastness by cleaning a small,inconspicuous area first. After cleaning it, turn the machine off and blot the area with a clean, white towel. If a large amount of color transfers to the towel, do not proceed with cleaning. If a small amount of color, or no color at all transfers you can proceed.
Clean the upholstery of the couch or sofa one section at a time. Use slow, even strokes that are slightly overlapped. Clean cushions or pillows for your couch on a sheet or towels, on the floor separate from the frame.
Leave the couch to air dry. Open windows and place a fan near the couch to promote air circulation and you couch will be ready to use within 2-3 hrs.
- Pick a nice day to steam clean your couch so that you can open the windows and air out the room
- Some steam cleaners use microfiber cloths to help you pick up complete debris. You’ll want to change these out as you steam so you can pick up all the dirt
- Wait until the water in the steamer cools before dumping it out
