The couch is one of the most comfortable places to relax yourself. However, it can also become stressing especially when you see it messy and filled with stains. Vacuuming it may be easy especially if you are just eliminating dust, collecting fur or other types of debris.
But how about stains? It is not something which can be sucked up easily as it goes deep within leather and fabric. Knowing how to clean a couch means knowing how to remove stains. You are free to use the cleaner of your choice meaning you can look for cheaper and kinder to the Earth. But you have to know that the tool you use is very important. It must be effective and efficient to ensure that task will be done.
Here we will be giving you some tips as well as some product recommendations which can help you resolve these couch issues:
Fabric upholstery - Couches with this material are considered scratch-resistant but hard to clean; they are easily stained and will absorb odors such as smoke. It can also be susceptible to dust mite and tend to trap pet hair and dust, so it is not good for allergies.
To clean, we recommend wiping it all over with Lola Rola Sticky Mop™ to trap all unnecessary filth and scrubbing it with our Anti-Microbial Clean N' Wipe™ Cleaning Cloth to remove the stains. You can also use our Cellulose Sponge Cleaning Cloth as a second cloth to absorb moisture and remove soap.
Leather upholstery: Unlike its fabric counterpart, you cannot usually wash leather-covered materials. But don’t worry because these are usually resistant to stains. However, they are prone to scratch and may still get soiled from time to time. In these cases, all you can do is spray the cleaner and wipe it with Lola Wowables™. Since leather couches are durable, they will last long. But through time they will fade and that will require higher maintenance to prevent aging.
Synthetic upholstery: Since this type of material can be damaged by too much heat and agitation, it must be treated extra carefully. What you need is a soft cloth such as our Jumbo Microfiber Cleaning Cloth to remove stains. This tool is made up of materials that prevents scratches to surfaces so rest assured your furniture will be taken care of.
Understanding how you must treat your couch based on its composition is key to effectively cleaning and maintaining it. You also need the collective help of tools and cleaning agents that will work effectively on different types of stains.
You also must be consistent with cleaning if you really want to make your couch long-lasting. Try to find a schedule that works best for you and test if you could make it a routine.
These Lola cleaning cloths that you used, can be cleaned and re-washed for re-use on other furniture and other parts of the house. Rest assured that they have the same effectiveness and efficiency even after a tough couch cleaning task.
