Easy Ways for You to Protect Your Upholstery

For the time in between your regular cleaning, accidents will happen and your upholstery is going to get stained or damaged. While it is true that you cannot stop all instances from occurring, there are ways to prevent a great many of them. In this post, Colonial Cleanpro - Carpet Cleaner has prepared a few easy to implement methods to prevent against upholstery stains and damage.

First Things First

The best way to prevent a stain from ruining your upholstery is with an upholstery protecting solution. A solution such as this is applied, usually through a spray, onto your upholstered items and provides an invisible barrier which prevents stains from sticking to your upholstery. This level of protection is particularly useful if your couch or upholstered furniture is susceptible to wine spills as it gives you time to remove the liquid before permanent staining has a chance to begin. An upholstery protector can be considered to be your first line of defense.

Rules, Rules, Rules!

There's an old saying that "rules were meant to be broken." However, this does not apply to your upholstery. Take some time to think about the most common ways in which your upholstery and carpets have been stained and damaged in the past. With this list in hand, create a few rules which can prevent them occurring again. The most common rules are likely to be no eating on the couch or making sure you take your shoes off before walking into the house. However, create any rules which you feel would protect the upholstery in your home. The key to your list of rules is to stay vigilant and enforce them. While your family members may mean well when they say "I'll be careful," an accident is just that, an accident. Create your list and make it clear to members of your house that the rules on it need to be followed. If, despite your best efforts, an accident has occurred, the key is to act quickly. Remove as much of the stain as possible and then speak with Colonial Cleanpro - Carpet Cleaner. Available by calling 804 324 6471, a professional clean is the best way to remove a stain from your upholstery and prevent permanent damage or discoloration.

Regular Cleanings

While it may seem like just another chore to add your ever growing list, the advantages of cleaning your upholstery regularly are many. While you may not have time for a thorough scrub, simply spending a few minutes to wipe them down with a warm water mixture as you vacuum your carpets is a great way to prevent dirt and grime buildup.

Designate a Space

If you are entertaining guests or your children have their friends over, designate a space where spills and messes are easily cleaned up. The kitchen is a great hub for entertaining as it often provides benches and chairs along with the all important tiled floors. Alternatively, if the weather is nice, don't be afraid to take your entertaining outdoors.

Prepare for Your Pets

Many homeowners enjoy having their pets inside the house but find it hard to stay on top of the stains they can bring in with them. While many people will suggest you leave your pets outside, our advice comes in the form of preparation. Head to your local pet store or department store and purchase a pet blanket which you can place on a specific couch cushion. Teach your pet that this is their seat, and be sure to remove it regularly and clean the blanket while they are outside playing.
