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:
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.
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.

CLEAN | PROTECT | PRESERVE
We can deodorize and protect your furniture after every cleaning, just as we do with our carpet cleaning services. Our experts spray 3M Scotchgard on your furniture to create an invisible barrier around the fibers. This improves resistance to dry soil, water-based stains, and daily wear and tear. We can also apply a deodorizer that neutralizes odors by eliminating them at their source. After every furniture-cleaning, a fresh, clean scent prevails, and your furniture continues to look great year after year.
FOR A CLEAN THAT'S MORE THAN SKIN DEEP.
Even leather furniture needs a regular cleaning. It takes on the same dirt and pollutants as upholstered furniture. But unlike upholstered furniture, leather faces the added challenge of lost moisture and softness over time. Store-bought leather cleaners and conditioners provide immediate relief, but they can also cause long-term damage. Proper maintenance demands an experienced professional. Goodman's Carpet & Upholster Cleaning uses safe, professional leather cleaners, moisturizers and protectors to rejuvenate your leather furniture—without harmful side effects.
So don’t settle for dirty. And don’t buy new. Let our professional deep clean inject new life into your favorite chair or sofa. From couch cleaning to sofa cleaning to all the upholstered and leather furniture in your home, get a clean you can trust.
