With the daily traffic of children, pets and other members of your family, the sofa in your home in Tufnell Park can quickly become stained and dirty.

However, there are ways that you can breathe new life into your sofa, and here are a few tips and tricks on the best way to do it.

Before you attempt your sofa cleaning in Tufnell Park, N7, you need to make sure that it is suitable for the way you intend to clean it. Some sofas require specialised cleaning products and equipment so it is always best to check first. You should examine the label to find out what cleaning requirements it has and adapt your procedures accordingly. As some products and methods require you to remove the upholstery, you need to see if it can be removed for cleaning. This is also a good time to check your upholstery for any tears and damage so that it can be easily repaired. Another important point to remember before commencing your upholstery cleaning is to treat a small area with the cleaning product first. This will show if the colour will run out during cleaning. If it does, then you should use a different product.

2)    Cleaning in the Washing Machine
Depending on the information label, some sofa covers and cushions can be placed in the washing machine. This is of course a very quick way of cleaning and will be great if you don’t have much free time. Follow the label instructions carefully to prevent colour run or shrinkage to the covers. Depending on the number of covers and the size of your washing machine, you should be able to fit all the upholstery in one or two loads.

3)    Cleaning with Sprays and Foams
If you can’t remove your upholstery from the sofa in your house in the N19 district, then there are other ways to clean your furniture by using sprays and foams. These are applied to the sofa and left to work for a short while. As before, it is advisable to test a small area first before you spray the whole sofa. Once the detergent has done its work, you can then vacuum the residue off the sofa along with any loosened dirt. You may find that you have to repeat the process if there are areas that haven’t been cleaned as you would like. Overall, these are very effective at cleaning your sofa without resorting to professional services.
