How to Properly Care for Suede Upholstery with the Help of the Carpet Cleaning Experts in Denver

Prevent Mishaps at All Costs

Again, suede is a delicate material, so if you want it to stay in pristine condition, you should do what you can to ensure it won't get harmed in the first place. For that reason, you should:
  • Talk to your family and establish a few basic rules regarding the suede furniture. For example, you can tell them that shoes aren't allowed on the upholstery, that the pets can't be on it, and that they shouldn't eat while sitting on the suede couch.
  • If you fear that your suede upholstery will get ruined by water or other liquid substances, then you should protect it with water and stain spray repellents. Doing so will help you get those stains and marks out easily.
  • Another way to keep your suede safe, as well as provide more style and decor to your home, is to use cushions, pillows and throws to cover it. Moreover, those pieces will help your home have a cozier, welcoming, and friendly feel to it.
  • After some time, direct sunlight can take a toll on your suede furniture, making it lose its color, and seem dull and old. That's why it's a good idea to keep your upholstery away from windows where they can be exposed to the damaging sun rays.
  • Having a professional team come and clean your suede furniture about once a year can also help prevent that any stains, odors, or microorganisms will stay in them.

Care for Your Suede the Right Way

Needless to say, your upholstery (especially if it's suede) requires some regular maintenance so it can keep the shape, softness, and color that you want from it. For that reason, you should follow the tips mentioned below.
  • Of course, you need to clean your suede upholstery every so often. However, if you want a way to stay on top of your cleaning sessions and make sure you don't skip one, create a schedule. Set a day of the week in which you clean your suede items to keep them spotless.
  • If you want to be certain that you'll do a thorough job when you clean, but still want to be gentle enough so you don't hurt the suede, get a special brush that can help you scrape off any hairs or dirt that may stick to the fabric.
  • Another important step in your suede's cleaning process is vacuuming. If you want to lift all of the dust from your upholstery, vacuum it with the right nozzles slowly and in different directions. Don't forget to vacuum under the cushions as well.

Clean Up the Mess Effectively

Unfortunately, no matter how hard you try, it's likely that a mishap will put your suede upholstery at risk at some point. For those occasions, it is best to be prepared and act fast to minimize the consequences:
  • First of all, grab a clean towel and blot the affected area repeatedly to remove as much of the substance as possible. Try not to rub the suede, since it will only result in the substance sinking further into it.
  • The next step is to grab a suede cleaner (you should have one handy) that will allow you to remove any spots, marks, or stains left by the substance. Follow the instructions and try to use little moisture on the upholstery so you don't damage it.
  • Finally, you need to let the furniture dry entirely before using it as normal (since this can result in mold growth and ruined suede). To that end, open windows and doors, and turn on your fans, to help it dry faster.
