A sofa is for life…Or almost. It can certainly be a life long companion in our home, if we take care of it in the right way. With a little care and proper cleaning, our sofa can last for many years without ever losing its charm, continuing to enhance the ambience of our home. Here are some tips to keep a sofa beautiful for longer – despite the passage of time.
In order to protect your sofa as much as possible and prevent it from being easily damaged and able to last over the years, it is important to follow these small precautions:
In addition to the above precautions, proper and regular cleaning of your sofa is fundamental for good maintenance. For example, fabric sofas can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner and, if the covers are removable, they can be washed comfortably in the washing machine. To remove stains, various methods can be used such as vinegar and water or Marseille soap.
Leather sofas should be brushed regularly, taking care not to scratch the upholstery. It is also important to take immediate action on stains.
