KnuWhizz offers many upholstery cleaning services for Ballarat Upholstery cleaning. Upholstery can include, couches, chairs, drapes and car upholstery. Specifically in this article we will focus on general stain removal from upholstery chairs and couches. We all know what can happen when you spill liquid on your upholstery.
Whether it be coffee, juice or wine, the upholstery needs to be free of debris, dirt and soil. Regular maintenance and vacuuming will ensure the removal of a majority of soil, dust and dirt. Pet hair can be a problem but can be removed with an upholstery tool.
The spill itself will occur quickly so you must act fast. Grab a paper towel or cloth (it must be dry and clean) and blot the spill as soon as you can. By blotting, you will not be rubbing or scrubbing the fabric, which can push the liquid further into the fabric and cause permanent staining and make it much more difficult to remove. If left for too long, the liquid can form into a stain. Depending on the acidity and
fabric the stain can become permanent or able to be removed.
Most wine, food, dirt and soil stains can be removed with water. Oil based stains, or stains that are harder to remove may require chemical treatment or a professional. Whenever you are in doubt about a stain it is best to call a professional upholstery cleaner to assess and remove the stain. Although renting a small upholstery/carpet cleaning machine may seem like an easier idea, is not the better solution.
