Furniture Care Tips

General Furniture Maintenance

Kids, pets and daily wear and tear make it difficult to keep furniture looking like it did the day you brought it home from the store. But with a small investment of time into proper furniture maintenance, you can extend the life of your furniture. Regular furniture care goes a long way toward maintaining your furniture between professional cleaning visits. Here are a few furniture cleaning and furniture care tips that everyone can use:

  • Vacuum upholstered furniture with a light brush to remove dust particles, as well as food and dirt that may go unnoticed. This prevents the unwanted dirt and grime from settling into the fibers, which can happen easily if it hides in the cracks and crevices of your furniture.
  • Rotate any cushions to prevent over-use in certain areas.
  • Refrain from washing cushion covers in the washing machine as this may cause fading, shrinking and fabric deterioration.
  • Keep furniture away from direct sunlight as it could cause fading.
  • Avoid placing items like newspapers on upholstered furniture as they may discolor the fabric.
  • Keep a watchful eye on certain dark-colored blankets and throws that could transfer their color to the fabric on your furniture.
  • Clean and use furniture polish on wood furniture to help protect it from scratches and abrasions. Dust attracts moisture, which can soften the furniture if it accumulates and cause permanent damage.

Spot-Removal Tips for Furniture

Accidents happen, but the following spot-removal tips add to your furniture maintenance arsenal and help to minimize the damage:

  • Use Stanley Steemer Professional Spot Remover to treat spots and spills, acting quickly to remove the substance before it penetrates the fibers.
  • Use a spoon or similar tool to remove any solid materials.
  • Blot—don’t scrub—spills with a clean, white cloth to absorb as much of the liquid as possible.
  • Spray Stanley Steemer Professional Spot Remover on a problem area until it is wet, but first test it in an inconspicuous spot.
  • Wait for 1 to 3 minutes if using a spot remover to ensure that it loosens the substance.
  • Wipe spots with a clean, white cloth, gently working your way from the outer edges toward the center. Repeat the spray-wait-and-wipe process as needed.
  • Place dry, absorbent white cloths over the spill area and press to absorb any remaining moisture.

Customer Testimonials
I used to use you all the time, probably 8-10 years ago. However, a friend had his own carpet cleaning company so I used him out of loyalty. Well, over time I have become less and less satisfied and decided to use you again.
WOW! how I miss you and how I forgot what an excellent job you do! Lesson learned....I am definitely back. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your excellent service. Your technicians were the best and treated me like a valued customer.
