Buying a sofa is a serious financial investment, and understandably you want to keep it looking new for as long as possible. While nobody’s perfect, and there will inevitably be spills and marks that find their way to your upholstery, there are ways to minimize the damage without compromising the look and feel of your living room:
Arm Rest Covers and Slip Covers
While nobody wants to cover up the upholstery on their new sofa just to keep it clean, a slip cover may be a good idea if you have small children or pets that pose a threat to the wellbeing of your sofa. They are available in a wide range of sizes and colors that stretch to fit a variety of different sofas, and are generally very affordable.
Regular Preventative Cleaning
Investing in an over-the-counter upholstery cleaning product is always a great idea, but to maximize its effectiveness, it’s important to stay on top of your cleaning routine. Instead of waiting for multiple stains to find their way to your sofa, attack each one as it happens in order to keep your upholstery looking top-notch.
Scotchgard Fabric and Upholstery Protector
They say the best defense is a good offense, and in the world of upholstery, there’s none better than Scotchgard spray. It is essentially the plastic slipcover of yesteryear in aerosol form, and creates a spill and stain resistant barrier between your furniture and whatever messes come their way.
No matter how careful you think you are, eventually your new sofa will attract some sort of spill or dirt, but with these tips, you’ll be more than ready to tackle whatever comes your way.
