The holidays are fast approaching in Sparta, WI! With so many people passing through your home this time of year along with many celebrations taking place, spills, stains, and other accidents are likely to occur!

Do your best to prepare your upholstered furniture for the season and to prevent further damage from taking place. Here’s how to get started:

Vacuum First: If you’ve noticed your couch or other upholstered furniture looking a bit dingy as of late and plan to get them clean, start with vacuuming! Removing the top layer or dust, dirt, and pet hair will save you time later.

Blot Stains: The best way to clean upholstered surfaces is to clean stains immediately. Use a white cloth to immediately blot out spills. This will keep the stain from setting or spreading on your upholstery!

Test First: Always try out new cleaning products in small, unnoticeable areas of your furniture to make sure that they’re effective and will not stain. This step is especially important if you have cut off or removed tags from the furniture, as you will have trouble identifying which type of product works best.

Hire Professionals: Rather than guessing which type of cleaners to use or how to best handle your furniture cleaning, invest in a quality cleaner instead. Especially if you’re recovering from a disaster before the holidays, professional cleaners understand exactly which products to use on which types of upholstered furniture!
