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
Good Morning!
My name is Rochelle McCain and I wanted to personally let you know how well I was treated while visiting Stanley Steemer on Monday, September 17th. I had had a terrible weekend when I discovered that colored copy paper had bled onto one of my black leather seats in my automobile. After making many calls to various places of business that were supposed to be auto interior specialist, without much luck, I was finally referred to try Stanley Steemer. After explaining my problem to the receptionist Katy (may have the name wrong) she spoke with her manager Robert Burns. Who in turn suggested that I bring my car in so he could take a look at it. Mr. Burns was very friendly, polite and very helpful. And he was able to pretty much remove all of the stain out of my seat! I was already excited and relieved that the stain was removed from my seat, however, when I went back into the office to pay for the services, Mr. Burns had the receptionist issue me an invoice with a $0 balance!! There was no charge!! I can’t thank him enough. Customers are so quick to complain when something isn’t right, but very rarely say a word when they are satisfied. Therefore, I wanted to personally let you know that I am a very satisfied customer and to give a compliment to your staff and a special thanks to Mr. Robert Burns.
Thanks, Rochelle M., Saginaw, MI
