With new facts coming out on how to stay safe during a pandemic, one thing remains the same: personal hygiene. A virus does not remain on soft surfaces as much as it will on harder surfaces such as wood, metal plastics and laminates.
We highly recommend washing your hands for approximately 20 seconds to ensure no spreading of the virus. That is the first of many steps to ensure your furniture is virus free!
Maintaining the Fabrics
As people have their different techniques on how to clean furniture, there are four different methods to always remember!
These methods may vary depending on the type of fabric…
1.Regular cleaning: This provides a daily cleaning that will remove any dust and/or debris that could damage the fabrics. This ensures that your furniture will look good for much longer.
2.Vacuum Fabrics: Vacuuming provides a deeper clean to ensure that no dirt is left on the furniture that could slowly damage the furniture over time. Continue to do this and your furniture will remain better for longer!
3.Removing stains: Stains by far are one thing to fear when it comes to your beautiful furniture. However, by using the right techniques to remove the stains, it will help provide a cleaner look to your fabrics. More details coming up!
4.Deep Cleaning: Finally, depending on your fabrics, it is important to provide a deep clean to remove any build up of dirt. Methods may include steaming the fabrics, if removable, placing them in a washer or using other cleaners.
